Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Well, first in a series and I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading more.
We start with Lucy’s return home after nine years. She left under a cloud, leaving her boyfriend behind, and taking another girls one with her. She’d been one of those teen tearaways, always in trouble, constantly drunk and causing problems with the locals, and was the despair of her parents. She’s home now though, helping her mum with her ailing dad, and with another purpose in mind too. The start is typical of the way things are going to go – she gets out of her car in a snowstorm and promptly knocks her ex, Richard, off his bike with the door....then discovers he lives next door. And is her parents doctor so she’ll be seeing a lot of him! That really doesn’t suit either of them. Richard has married since she left, the girl he was with before Lucy, but he is still furious with her and lets her know it.
Lucy is different from the girl that left. She’s had a difficult few years, finally sobered up after a really bad and violent relationship, and is now following the AA plan and needs to make her apologies. I felt for her, she’s a tough task ahead as she really was horrible and cruel to people. You’d think that would make her unlikeable – and for me I need to like my main lead, but when we see more of her home life I could see that her dramatics were a way of coping, a way of dealing with the fact her dad disliked her, belittled her and was really obnoxious. He’s not happy to see her back, but her mum has been telling Lucy in their phone calls she can’t cope.Read more ›
Nobody's Angel is probably one of the most depressing books I have read for a while, and unnecessarily so if I am being totally honest. I was ready to call time on this book at around the 40% mark, but I stuck with it as I was really hoping that out of all the dull, nasty, abhorrent and un-savoury characters in the book, there would be at least one positive to add to the flickering candle that was Lucy Flint, and the only reason I really liked her was because she had pretty much dumped on everyone else in the book before she had left town 9 years previously, and they all by the behavior displayed in this book pretty much deserved it. The last 5% offers a little hope, but not enough for me to rate it any higher than I have.
She was alive and she was living each day as it came.
For me this book had two stories running through it, one of positivity, of a woman returning home, trying to repair the damage from her past and right the wrongs with the people she left behind, this is the story I wanted to read, was expecting to read. It was overshadowed by the family drama, most of which I finished the book feeling was unresolved and unexplained, Lucy returns home at her mothers request, as her father is ill.
Quite frankly, her parents, were losers of the highest order, its not often I feel that strongly or vehemently about my elders (yes even in books, I want to be able to respect them) but Carl was a nasty, vitriolic, poisonous man, his illness, whatever it was, was never really clarified, so I felt absolutely no sympathy for him.Read more ›
The story is beautifully written, and seamlessly brings together Lucy’s past–where she managed to hurt a lot of people with a series of bad decisions–with her present, where she’s trying to make amends to those she hurt the most. Sarah Hegger doesn’t gloss over any of the chaos Lucy caused, nor does she make excuses for her character. She simply shows that everybody deserves a second chance, and everybody can grow up to be a better person, and that’s why I found myself falling in love with Lucy Flint.
And then, of course, there’s her love interest. Nobody adores a second-chance romance more than I do, and I loved the way that Lucy reconnected with Richard, her ex-boyfriend, and her father’s doctor who happens to live across the road. From the start, and despite their bitterness, the connection between the two of them was palpable, and I loved the way they were drawn to each other.
This book is more than just a love story, though. Serious issues are touched upon; alcoholism, ageing parents, the way we become carers as they grow older. All of these things are treated with care, never exploited, and it made me love Sarah Hegger’s writing even more than I ever did.
