Summary

From the bestselling author of The Girl in the Corner comes the moving story of a man whose life is changed in an instant. How do you start again when you lose the only love you’ve ever known?

When Nick’s wife Kerry falls ill and dies, he realises for the first time how fragile his happiness has always been, and how much he’s been taking his good life and wonderful family for granted. Now, he suddenly finds himself navigating parenthood alone, unsure how to deal with his own grief, let alone that of his teenage son, Olly. 

In the depths of his heartbreak, Nick must find a way to navigate life that pleases his son, his in-laws, his family and his friends - while honouring what Kerry meant to them all. But when it comes to his own emotions, Nick doesn’t know where to begin. Kerry was his childhood sweetheart - but was she really the only one who could ever make him happy? 

And in the aftermath of tragedy, can Nick and his son find themselves again?

An easy listen

Amanda Prowse has a real talent for making you feel that you’re there in her stories and this one is a really easy listen. There are strands that weave together neatly towards the end of book but wish it had gone on for a lot longer.

A very enjoyable book

I really enjoyed this book which was read by the author it was full of well drawn characters behaving normally in various scenarios. To me it seemed to reflect life in all aspects. I have never read Amanda Prowse before but will certainly read more of her books.

Sweet story, but too long

This is a beautifully written and narrated story, but the content was not interesting enough for the tale to last as long as it did; the little suspense that occurred was too mundane to keep me interested and I was actually willing the story to conclude about 4 chapters before it did. The characters were all very likeable, but not up to filling so many chapters.

Great book, fab narration.

I loved this book from the very first although it started with a gulp foe me too, bringing back a lot of sad memories. I loved that it was a story about ordinary people, struggling in every way that real life throws at you but that love and friendship just shine through it all. Couldn't put it down till it was finished. Love Amanda Ptowse but this has been my favourite.

Lovely story and narration

A tender story which was told in a gentle voice that tackled difficult personal issues. It contains a lot of wisdom, love and pain.

The Light in the Hallway

What a beautiful, touching story, definitely a tissue box next to you while reading. I love Amanda way of writing and how her stories unfold. Real life tragedies. Looking forward to my next read/listen. The narration is excellent.
