When Nick’s wife Kerry falls ill and dies, he realises for the first time how fragile his happiness has always been, and how much he’s been taking his good life and wonderful family for granted. Now, he suddenly finds himself navigating parenthood alone, unsure how to deal with his own grief, let alone that of his teenage son, Olly.
In the depths of his heartbreak, Nick must find a way to navigate life that pleases his son, his in-laws, his family and his friends—while honouring what Kerry meant to them all. But when it comes to his own emotions, Nick doesn’t know where to begin. Kerry was his childhood sweetheart—but was she really the only one who could ever make him happy?
And in the aftermath of tragedy, can Nick and his son find themselves again?
Firstly a big thank you to edpr for my copy to review
Amanda is a beautiful writer and you always know youre in for a treat opening her book.
Her books are powerfully emotive .
This was a tough book as after i read the blurb i realised how close to home it was. My last relationship was with a widow so that was interesting for me albeit a bit painful to read.
This explored the sensitive matter of grief and how it impacts others so differently.
I loved reading from a mans perspective.
Funny,heartwarming and life affirming .
Beautiful book that will have you hooked straight away.
