Product description

Review

Mike Gayle has such a talent for delving into hearts, minds and contemporary issues. HALF A WORLD AWAY is supremely poignant, uplifting and heartwarming in equal measure - as well as being a real page-turner.

Mike has a prodigious talent for writing completely relatable characters who draw you into their world and tug at your heart strings. HALF A WORLD AWAY is an absolute triumph and a joy to read. Once again Mike tackles complex and thorny issues with a confident and compassionate hand.

HALF A WORLD AWAY is heartbreaking and beautiful, full of poignant moments and characters you fall for from page one. I couldn't put it down.

Gayle writes beautifully about fractured families and the unshakable power of love, in a book that is both heart-wrenching and uplifting, and full of the deeply relatable characters for which he's so well-known. This is a triumph of a novel, true and heartfelt, and you'll be in floods when you reach the poignant final page.

This book is a treasure, written from the heart

HALF A WORLD AWAY is heartbreakingly lovely. Its main characters came to feel like friends of mine, and the book is full of such warmth and love. It truly captured my heart

He has a wonderful way of lifting the reader up while tugging at our heart strings at the same time. A lovely story about what family really means...

Heartbreaking and wonderful, a beautiful book about the power of love to surmount almost anything --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Mike Gayle just gets better and better and HALF A WORLD AWAY might be the loveliest yet.

Heartbreaking and wonderful, a beautiful book about the power of love to surmount almost anything.

Mike Gayle is so good at writing relatable characters going through big challenges... This is a warm-hearted book that deals with all kinds of issues - class, race, marriage - and brings a lump to the throat, too.

HALF A WORLD AWAY is heartbreaking and beautiful, full of poignant moments and characters you fall for from page one. I couldn't put it down.

He has a wonderful way of lifting the reader up while tugging at our heart strings at the same time. A lovely story about what family really means... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
