I loved this book and cried at the end. I would love to read more of Ms Hepworth's work but will have to wait until I can budget for them. In the meantime, I am delighted to have been able to read this one. I wish I could give it more than five stars!
It covered so many incredibly emotional topics so extremely close to my heart. I have survived cancer but my sister with teenage children didn't. I have been through infertility treatment and Sally totally conveyed exactly how it feels as a woman and the effects it has on a relationship.
I brilliant story of loneliness, family, courage and love. Tearing up again as I write this.
