Reviewed by Lee Reading Group
This is a book about second chances, about the process of grieving, about learning to get go. Love between siblings, parents and children, men and women and love which transcends death. Background characters beautifully observed. Convincing relationships sometimes straying into sentimentality. A minor criticism: credulity stretched just a little over the physical relationship twixt Charlie and Tess but overall a delightful life enhancing read.
