A moving and excellent story, well written and emotional. Sally Hepworth brought her characters magnificently to life - Zoe with such deep anxiety that she can hardly function in life, Harry - a boy inflicted with Chrone's disease, surely so unfair for a teenager. The supporting cast of Kate and the interlocking of Sonje was amazing and very well told.
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!
Took me a while to get into, but do stick with it - it’s a really well written tale of 4 women (3 grownups, 1 teen), some look like that have it all, others struggle more but rise above it all - a tear jerker, lovely book.
This book was a beautiful story from beginning to end. I recently lost my mother to cancer (though I am 34), she did a wonderful job of writing about a mother and daughter travelling through a cancer diagnosis and treatment. Highly recommend.
Loved the characters of Alice, Kate, Sonja and Zoe - each playing amazing roles in this story.
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.
I loved this book. Strongly empathised with the characters - all except George. Interesting and relevant themes: family, social anxiety, domestic violence, cancer, death and - love! Keep writing Sally 😊
When I read the introduction I was worried it would make me feel too sad but I was so involved with the story that I couldn't put it down! A mothers love for her children is deep and lasting and I felt this throughout the story! I have read all of Sally Hepworth's books and thoroughly enjoyed them all!
