Jenny Tanner opens the box she has cherished for decades. Contained within are her most precious mementoes, amongst them a pebble, a carving and a newspaper cutting she can hardly bear to read. But Jenny knows the time is finally here. After the war, in a mountainside village in Italy, she left behind a piece of her heart. However painful, she must return to Cinque Alberi. And lay the past to rest.
After a troubled upbringing, Candice Barnes dreams of a future with the love of her life – but is he the man she believes him to be? When Candice is given the opportunity to travel to Italy with Jenny, she is unaware the trip will open her eyes to the truth she’s been too afraid to face. Could a place of goodbyes help her make a brave new beginning?
Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my copy to review. I’ve read a few of her previous books and loved them.
Kathryn is a beautiful storyteller and captures both your heart and imagination. This is a emotive,powerful and life affirming story on love,loss,friendship and second chances.
This blew me away in all honesty with all the revelations. I’d like to thank Kathryn for capturing the essence of a unhealthy relationship so sensitively. Speaking as someone who’s been in Candices shoes .
Through a unlikely friendship they each find the courage to reflect on the past bit also face the future.
I highly recommend this book .
