My Thoughts – If I'm honest it did take me a while to get into this book. I purchased the Hardback version but ended up reading it on my Kindle as I seemed to be having a reading slump. Each chapter followed a different character which I liked, it is a steady story but one which is totally believable and could be reality. I love that two very different people can be joined together through certain events. I love all the main characters, especially Tanzie and Norman. I was so emotional in the last third of the book and the characters really opened up to the reader. It wasn't just chick lit for me, I finished this thinking of the real meaning behind every page. This is the first Jojo Moyes book I have read and I was left wanting to read more.
My Rating - 4/5
