Dont read this book in public places and have lots and lots of tissues with you. I read the same thing from fellow readers and turned every page with a sense of trepidation... and sure enough the waterworks flowed. This is the first book I've read of Melanie Hansen and I will be reading a lot more of hers. Raw in its emotional content, real in the way that only great writing can portray and a page turner from beginning to end. The past, present and the future walk hand in hand in this story and cannot be separated. So settle in and get ready to read a beautiful yet tragic, heartbreaking story. It does have a HEA but its one hell of a journey getting there. Loved it!
Raw, powerful and heartbreaking! A poignant storyline on how war rips people’s lives apart. Death and grief all consuming. But with time you learn to live again. I stumbled across this book and it now sits in my Top 10 reads. Have a box of tissues handy and prepare for the rollercoster ride of emotions.
An amazing story. So well written. I'm not usually a crier but I had a genuine sob. But if like me you don't want an all sad story, don't worry. This story has plenty of hope and love. Beautiful characters.
