What would you do if you learned that the life you lived was a lie?
Nina McCarrick lives the perfect life, until her husband, Finn, is killed in a car accident and everything Nina thought she could rely on unravels.
Alone, bereft and faced with a mountain of debt, Nina quickly loses her life of luxury and she begins to question whether she ever really knew the man she married. Forced to move out of her family home, Nina returns to the rundown Southampton council estate—and the sister—she thought she had left far behind.
But Nina can’t let herself be overwhelmed—her boys need her. To save them, and herself, she will have to do what her husband discouraged for so long: pursue a career of her own. Torn between the life she thought she knew and the reality she now faces, Nina finally must learn what it means to take control of her life.
Bestselling author Amanda Prowse once again plumbs the depths of human experience in this stirring and empowering tale of one woman’s loss and love.
I was looking forward to reading this, I love getting stuck in with a new author for me. I really wasn't sure what to expect having not read any of her previous works.
The writing is great, it's very well done and put together. I just had one niggle through the book.
Nina. At times I felt for her, I could have opened my arms and given her a great big cuddle, and then as the book went on, by god she grated on me. Once or twice I could have happily given her a slap. But saying that, her life did change dramatically and it was interesting to see how she and her family coped.
Once past my dislike for her I began to really enjoy the book again. I guess for an author to have you feeling so strongly about a character, then they have done their job brilliantly.
Nina, Connor and Declan really do go on a journey of discovery. Learning a whole new life after the tragic loss of Finn, Husband and Father.
I finished the book feeling proud of how everyone had changed. I especially liked Tiggy, she was a real Character.
This book really does make you think how different life could be, how things can change so quickly.
It's safe to say I will read more from this author.
