A knock at the door shatters Kate Hemingway’s life when she’s informed of her husband Stuart’s death in Afghanistan. She struggles to care for their young son George with only Stuart’s aloof best friend Paul as emotional support. Piece by fragile piece, she tries to rebuild her life, realising Paul and her son have formed an unlikely bond.
When Paul agrees to accompany Kate and a group of disadvantaged teenagers on a trip to the Yorkshire moors, he finally reveals something he’s kept secret for years. Kate’s own scarred heart begins to open up … but can she risk her son’s happiness as well as her own? A novel about friendship, loss, and the human heart’s enduring capacity for love, this stunning debut explores one woman’s attempt at survival when her world comes crashing down around her.
I was drawn to this book by the cover, it looks so inviting and vibrant. The story is such a lovely and heart warming contemporary romance. This story is about widower Kate and how she has to face bringing up her young son George. Her husband’s best friend and godfather to George helps and supports Kate in everything that she does, When both of them are together she realises he is not the indifferent man she thought he was and their relationship deepens. I was completely caught up in the relationship between them, so much so I wanted them to find happiness. Such a warm and tender book that I just couldn’t put down and managed to read in a day.
