This is one of the most heartwarming stories I've ever read. Initially, I was a bit confused with the three story lines. They seemed so unrelated other than all being in England. I followed the stories and wondered why the main character was always so isolated. She seemed to be surrounded by people, but she really was totally alone in her illness. No one knew what was really going on in her head, or her heart. Seeing Mansell weave these three story lines together as she did was amazing. Nothing clinical or cutesy. Just life happening and people communicating and being people in a really good way. Mansell created some really wonderful characters in this book. This is definitely a must read for a rainy day -or a sunny day -or a snowy day -or any day. It's just a must read. Now, I'm going to go buy everything else Jill Mansell has ever written and read it. You're sure to see more reviews of her work here on my blog.
I was provided a digital copy of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I am not being compensated in any way. The opinions are fully my own.
