Beautiful, touching and hopeful book about bereavement and hope,
This review is from: My Henry (Hardcover)
Bought several copies of this today from The British Library shop, it has all the hallmarks of an instant classic.
It tells the magical simple tale of a woman and her daily dates with her husband who now has his (angel) wings and can come visit her between 4 and 7 everyday. Whilst others think that she is a tired old lady with nothing to look forward to except cups of tea she and her Henry are traveling through time and space having all the adventures that they never got to enjoy when he was alive. It is both beautifully illustrated and written, very simply but with a deep emotional core. It would make a great present for children or adults, especially those that have recently, or even not so recently, lost a loved one.
It made me both laugh and cry-what more could you ask for in a book?
