Do not miss me, because I will always be with you…I am the air, the moon, the stars. For we are all made of stars, my beloved… Wherever you look, I will be there.
Stella Carey exists in a world of night. Married to a soldier who has returned from Afghanistan injured in body and mind, she leaves the house every evening as Vincent locks himself away, along with the secrets he brought home from the war.
During her nursing shifts, Stella writes letters for her patients to their loved ones – some full of humour, love and practical advice, others steeped in regret or pain – and promises to post these messages after their deaths.
Until one night Stella writes the letter that could give her patient one last chance at redemption, if she delivers it in time…
I adore Rowans writing so much ,it reminds me how love feels and captures your heart along with all your senses that you find yourself breathless.
Thank you to Amelia for sending me a proof copy …here is me looking like a kid in candy shop with it …
I read it in one day ,was impossible to put down .
This made me think about love life and death and all the emotions that come with it . I would quite like rowan to write me a love story where im the main charctar that comes true !
All the charactars are brilliant and all bring such emotion to the storyline and all are fighting their own battles and struggling .I loved stella and what a thing to do for the people she sees at the end of their days all while silently struggling herself .She misses her husband who is back from the army but his soul and heart are missing .
My favourite characctar who had me swooning instanty is Ben long time friend of Hope and he is just a ray of sunshine and I could picture him so clearly .
Rowans books are so powerfully emotive and beautiful and I realy belive many of her books could be made into tv/film and this one in particular .
I adored the letters being included that stella wrote on behalf of her patients and it makes you think who would you write to and what would you say?
I cant praise Rowan or this book enough its just beautiful and I promise you will be touched deeply by it .
Published may 21st and I will be singing from the rooftops for everyone to buy ,download or borrow it .
