This is a book about hope after loss--but I don't feel that the loss was adequately portrayed enough to move me. Margaret seems almost too accepting of her circumstances, we don't really get much of a chance to see her grieve. I did like…

Well written with believable dialogue, sympathetic characters & a plot line that holds all the way through. Similar to Jojo Moyes's Me Before You but more hopeful.

"When you don't know what to do for yourself, do something for somebody else." That pretty much sums up the novel. This was such a good story. A tragic accident lands Margaret in hospital with more than she can cope with. Although…

Wonderful women's fiction with some light romantic elements. I enjoyed following Maggie as she recovers from a devastating accident. The story was tragic, witty, frustrating, and sweetly romantic. I loved the family dynamics, but…
