An excellent and heartwarming read
The Many Colours of us follows the story of Julia, a relatable and easy to like protagonist who's yet to figure her life out. Through a series of letters delivered after his death, she gets to know the father she'd spent her life wondering about. There's something beautiful about getting to know someone this way, because in letters he thought she'd never read, true honesty comes through.
Learning about her father helps her to get her own life on track with the helps of her gorgeous lawyer.
It's a warm, easy to read novel with the right about of love, emotion, wit and humour. I truly recommend this book.
This is the first book I've read in a while and I loved every moment of it. It's so well written it quite amazing that it's Rachel's debut novel. I loved all the characters (although Julia's mother was a tad annoying!) and the engaging storyline. I'd highly recommend it and I'm really looking forward to Rachel's next book.
