Sad and lovely. I'm now having trouble finding a book good enough to fill the very deep hole she's left. (Milly Johnson, author of The Yorkshire Pudding Club)

The prologue was intriguing and captured my interest straight away. Everything seemed to happen very quickly at the beginning so I didn't really get a chance to feel upset about the funeral (this was a relief because I thought I would cry my eyes out at that part), I just wasn't emotionally involved enough at that time to feel sad.
The story switched comfortably between Olivia's past and her present to give the reader a better understanding of why she behaved the way she did. I enjoyed reading about Luca and Olivia's relationship before the accident and also their history as children. I was so curious about what Olivia had done to make the Felicone family dislike her so much.
In my opinion some of Olivia's actions were selfish and this did annoy me about her, she seemed to act before she thought. Even though a part of me could understand the reasons why she behaved like this, I did find those parts difficult to read.
There were some real heart-breaking moments that had my eyes filling with tears and other moments that had me feeling angry, in particular the headstone incident - I could almost feel Olivia's rage jumping out of the page at me.
This was a sad and emotional book that I just couldn't stop reading and it joins the many other one-day read books on my shelf.
However, the author's perception of widowhood, the sadness leaving in less than 6 months, is hideous.
The protagonist is promiscuous, slutty, judgmental, cruel and vile. One is never given any reason to "be on her side".
Really not worth the time it takes for whispersync to download this trash.
