One small act can make a big difference
Violet Strong is strong by name but not by nature, or so she thinks. She listens but never talks about herself. She’s friendly but doesn’t have many real friends. She’s become good at keeping people at a distance ever since she left home at eighteen and never looked back.
But when Violet is forced to return home to care for her estranged mother, Glenys, she quickly finds out that life as a carer isn’t easy. Feeling overwhelmed, she’s forced to turn to the other local carers, including childhood friend, Adam, for help.
Although returning home still feels like a mistake, maybe it will help Violet right some wrongs. After all, she can’t keep running from her past forever, and in learning to look after others, perhaps Violet can start to finally love herself…
Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my copy to review on netgalley and apologies in my delay to reading.
I lived in Dover during my teens so it’s always a pleasure to connect with a author in that way.
This is a life affirming story of love ,loss forgiveness and caring .
A great mix of characters who each bring something to the story
I have 2 children with autism so I know all about caring and the struggles and challenges often presented. Jessica captures this effortlessly.
Relatable ,life affirming and warming.
Friendships ,family , new chances love are the main aspects of this uplifting story. I highly recommend.
