Summary

How can you ever move on, if you can’t let go? 

A beautiful and poignant story of love, loss and finding hope where you least expect it to escape with this Christmas, perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes and Cecelia Ahern. 

Anna’s world was shattered three years ago when her husband, Spencer, was killed in a tragic accident. Her friends and family think it’s time she moved on, but how can she when she’s lost her soulmate? 

On New Year’s Eve, Anna calls Spencer’s old phone just to hear his voicemail greeting. But to her surprise someone picks up. Brody answers and is the first person who truly understands what Anna is going through. 

As they begin to speak regularly, Anna finds herself opening up, and slowly she discovers how to smile again, how to laugh, even how to hope.  

But Brody hasn’t been entirely honest with Anna. Will his secret threaten everything, just as it seems she might find the courage to love again?

Excellent Book

I loved this book - rather unusual plot line but it worked very well and would read this author again 👍

Just what I needed

I listen to audiobooks on my many long drives, but couldn’t turn this one off when I was home. I’ve had my headphones on doing laundry, cooking, gardening & even blasted it in the shower because I needed to know what happened next, what Brody wasn’t saying, if bloody Gail would settle down, and if Anna was ok.

I didn’t know this book was just what I needed until I had it!
