How do you say goodbye to your family for the last time?
Poppy Day is thirty-two and married to her childhood sweetheart. She’s a full-time mum of two gorgeous children and loves her homely little cottage in the countryside. It’s the life she aways wanted.
But Poppy is so busy caring for others she hasn’t noticed how tired she is, or the menacing lump growing on her breast. It’s unthinkable that cancer could defeat such a strong and amazing woman. But life doesn’t always give you what you deserve..
I got this a while ago as part of the works deal which is such a great shop,so admittly it wasn’t at top of my tbr.But I can honestly say this is one of the most heartbreaking yet beautiful books I have ever read.
At one point on the bus reading it today I had to put it away as my heart couldn’t take any more and I knew I would cry .
Such a beautiful piece of writing that I want to read all of her books now !
This has left me feeling profoundly lucky with what I have and cherishing my children .
I loved all the characters but my favourite is poppys daughter peg who was such a delight to meet ,she was funny and said those things that only kids will say .
It broke my heart in so many ways but also filled it with love and compassion especially for those suffering or whos lives have been suffered as a result of cancer .
I couldn’t put this down despite it being a tearjerker and I adore Amandas emotive powerful way with words .
