One small act can make a big difference
Violet Strong is strong by name but not by nature, or so she thinks. She listens but never talks about herself. She’s friendly but doesn’t have many real friends. She’s become good at keeping people at a distance ever since she left home at eighteen and never looked back.
But when Violet is forced to return home to care for her estranged mother Glenys, she quickly finds out that life as a carer isn’t easy. Feeling overwhelmed, she’s forced to turn to the other local carers, including childhood friend Adam, for help. Although returning home still feels like a mistake, maybe it will help Violet right some wrongs. After all, she can’t keep running from her past forever, and in learning to look after others, perhaps Violet can start to finally love herself.
I loved this book so much, it made my heart feel warm full. This story is about Violet who is such a sweetheart and I really felt for her, her mum is not well so she has to return home, we find out why she is reluctant to return home and you can understand why Violet doesn’t really want to . Her sister always came first and was the more loved child. Violet finds out what it is like to be a carer and she finds it tough but with the support of the local village she gets some help. Also she finds out more about one of her neighbours called Tammy who is having a tough time, I love seeing how Violet helps Tammy, it made my heart swell and I felt emotional as the two bonded. The story flowed so easily and I wanted to be there to hold Violet’s hand through all the tough times. I really loved this book, I think Jessica is becoming one of my favourite authors. I will treasure this book for ever. It needs more than a five star.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
