Summary

P is for Paris, where it all began. J is for jealousy, where it all came undone. But the most important letter is F. F is for forgiveness, the hardest of all.

Sisters Poppy and Rose used to be as close as two sisters could be, but it's been over a decade since they last spoke. Until they both receive a call that tells them their mother has gone - without ever having the chance to see her daughters reunited.

Andrea, though, wasn't the kind of woman to let a little thing like death stand in the way of her plans. Knowing her daughters better than they know themselves, she has left behind one very special last gift - the A-Z of Everything.

Loved It

Absolutely loved it, cannot recommend it enough. Both beautifully written and expertly narrated, I laughed out loud and even had a bit of a cry. It was recommended to me and I merrily recommend it on to anyone else who appreciates a heart warming book. 11 out of 10.

Beautiful

A wonderful captivating journey of love loss and family ties that had me a little broken by the end but left me filled with hope and encouragement

good story, but ignores sexual assault

This is an odd review. I liked the book and the performance. But there's a sexual assault/rape in the story that is treated as consensual sex. very difficult to get past that, although I kept hoping it would be recognised.
