Cuddle up with a warm drink, a slice of something yummy and indulge yourself
The book opens in 2057, strange for a Chicklit book, but as we see it is where the story begins at the end......
Isobel tells hers and James's story to Gabriella over a cup of tea. We then go way back to 1987 where Isobel and James first meet as teenagers and fall deeply in love, as with all true love this doesn't always run smoothly and as I followed the course of their lives I found myself crying along with Isobel as she struggles with her fathers illness CJD, which is no longer heard of, his ultimate death and the guilt she feels.
I followed the ups and downs of this book, thinking of the mistakes we all make and would they be able to put the past behind them to find happiness. The books follows them through the years and I as read I kept hoping that they would find happiness and forgiveness.
I was emotionally wrung out when I finished this book but really did love it, it has taken me a week to write my review and I really don't think I am doing it justice without giving too much away, I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone
The tragedies that Izz encounters broke my heart. Those who read the book and who know me will understand why. But she carries on and comes back stronger and more determined. And so do I.
So, this bloody brilliant book is my new favourite EVER! I give it a huge 10/10 and highly recommend it to everyone!!! It's an incredibly powerful, moving debut novel from an absolutely amazing lady. It has left me with the biggest book hangover and I can't stop thinking about it!!
