Mansell crafts a story that winds around your heart:
A bit different from what I’ve read from Mansell before, in this book she brings us three main characters from three different areas in the UK, centering on the common themes of love, loss, grief and hope. Mixing in Cystic Fibrosis and organ donation don’t seem to lend themselves to a story full of hope and heart, but read on… they really do.
Haillie has secrets– her life is on a timer: she’s on the wait list for a lung transplant AND she’s in love. But he’s untouchable – he just happens to be her doctor. There’s little for her to do but wait, and hope that her friends (an ex-boyfriend and his ex-girlfriend) only want her to live her last days well – not waiting.
Tasha, the only singleton in her group is soon to be paired off with Rory – an adrenaline junkie. She’s happy not to be single, but is the worry worth the change of status? Lastly bring in Flo. Flo inherits a cat, and the cat just happens to come with an apartment that she must live in. Can evicting the present resident, Lena, go smoothly. And her brother just may be a bit of a hottie…
Never did I expect this story to twist and evolve the way it did. Mansell crafts a story that winds around your heart: you care about the characters, you wonder about their men, and you wonder just how the three very different women will connect. Mansell treats each story individually, little moments that shine grab a bit of added sparkle as the story progresses. When you think (from the synopsis and meeting the players in the story) you know just what will unite them and bring the tale to an end, Mansell twists things just slightly – and you realize it couldn’t have been any better with a different ending. Combining her careful and distinct treatment of characters with admittedly difficult subjects of illness and organ donation worked to bring an honest and thoughtful story that leaves everyone with hope.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
