A beautifully written coming of age story which highlights that it is never too late to start over, never feel stuck in a situation due to fear of the unknown. This story is engaging from the first page, I read it in one sitting. You're drawn into the mindset and emotional battles of Linda, slowly we watch her rebel and become liberated in every way, emotionally, physically with her appearance, personality wise and even sexually. This is an empowering story, and a must read for any women who is in two minds about her future. Seek out your own happiness don't rely on someone else to make it for you is the message I got from this story. I was routing for Linda all the way and so happy that she found love the second time around, or at least a sense of what love should really feel like once she became unshackled from her monster of her late husband. I have never read anything by this author before, but I certainly would. Good character development, believable and relate-able story line told in a fast paced nature. You are on a journey with Linda.

For anyone who likes escapism in a book , this is the one for you, Shirley Valentine has nothing on this charming , funny, thought provoking book. Would appeal to all ages and hopefully those put upon, belittled and intimidated wives out there can find a way out of their sad lives.

We all know a Linda; our mothers, one of our friends, the neighbour or sometime, even ourselves.
She was married to an abuser; not one who would beat her to a pulp, but the kind who use his words. Everything she is has been moulded by her husband’s wants and she despises it.
Goodbye, Hello is about her breaking free out of her own volition. It may very well be after the man has died, but it still takes a lot of courage to actually acknowledge that she’s become someone she doesn’t want to be.
Instead of accepting it, she breaks out of her shell, packs up and goes on a holiday the man would have despised, fully intending to dump his memory there! It’s enchanting.
I’d also like to point out that I’d very much like a Shaan on demand, pretty please. The “beautiful bronze male” she encounters is quick-witted, ever so slightly swoonworthy here and there, but also credible; he is nowhere near the perfect billionaire playboy most heroine seem to stumble upon in nine book out of ten these days.
So altogether, you have a well-rounded, realistic story with characters which are both believable and easy to relate to, wrapped up in a fun, playful novella which reminds us that 1) life isn’t over the day we find a grey hair 2) life isn’t over because someone dies and 3) life DEFINITELY isn’t over if you’ve been with the wrong person once. A little piece of hope, right there.
The only issue? At the end, I wanted more. Well done, Alyson!

From the outset this book draws you straight into the storyline, the first person narrative is engaging and well written, but it is the opening line that hooks your attention and allows you to take a journey of rediscovery and reinvention with Linda.

The author has a great talent for creating a rounded personality for Linda, who as the narrator relates to each of the different characters in the story extremely differently. The contrast between how she relates to her husband, Marty and how she relates to her best friend, Fiona are one of great details in this book that make it easy to relate to as a reader.

The subject of the book, Linda taking stock of her life now she has experienced a life changing event and deciding what to do with her life now is a universal concept that can be identified with by anyone, no matter whether they are still in their twenties or in their nineties, though not everyone will have experienced the same events, it means that this book is easy to relate to and being told with Linda narrating it brings a friendly and almost conspiratal feel to the story.

Shaan is a wonderful character that comes into Linda’s life as a breath of fresh air, an element that completely changes things for Linda, but also brings in a feeling that all women have known at some time or other – that flustered and frustrated feeling that comes from seemingly continually embarrassing yourself in front of the same person.

The story is left open like some of the best movies, so that as a reader you can almost decide what happens with the different characters and works very well with this style of story. The only downside to this story is that it is short and as a reader, once you start reading you’ll find that you want more.
