'You'll laugh as much as you cry at this poignant tale of female friendship, love and loss' Marie Claire
A story of friendship, heartbreak and the day that changed two lives forever from the bestselling author of The Vintage Teacup Club. The perfect read for fans of Lucy Diamond and Lucy Dillon.
When life as you know it changes, will it define you, destroy you or make you stronger?
Best friends Isla and Sophie made each other a promise a long time ago: to never let life pass them by. Years later, Isla is in love, living abroad and fulfilling her dreams. But for Sophie, things haven't turned out the way she was expecting and she hasn't achieved any of the things she and Isla talked about.
And then, in one sudden moment, life irrevocably changes for both women.
Isla and Sophie have hard decisions to make but above all else they must face up to the uncertainty that lies ahead. It's only when they realise that this is easier together, two friends standing side by side, that each woman can embrace whatever the future holds for them.
Emotional, poignant and uplifting, The Little Pieces of You and Me is a story about old friends, new beginnings and what happens when being strong is your only choice. It will take your breath away.
Greene's unconventional romance covers love found, love lost, and the benefits of long-term friendship. In present-day Amsterdam, stage actor Isla is dismayed when her usual coffee shop is closed, but she notices there's one she's never tried before a combination cafe and bookshop just a few yards away. Maybe it's not love at first sight, but Rafael, the shop owner, definitely catches her interest. Meanwhile back in Bristol, England, Isla's university bestie, Sophie, is wondering where her life is going. She's married to a man who seems happiest in the company of other women and who has a hostile 16-year-old daughter. As these carefully crafted characters come to life on the page, they dominate the plot even to the point of very nearly obliterating it. Romance is decidedly put on the back burner as Isla and Sophie face illness, love, rejection, and disappointment. In the end, friendship wins the day, but romance readers may not find the conclusion satisfying.
Nice story, well written. I enjoyed reading this book. It is a story of friendship, loss, and learning to live again. Always like to read a book with a feel good ending.
