Summary

The addictive and emotive new novel from Katie Marsh, author of My Everything and A Life Without You. Perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes, Lisa Jewell and Lucy Dillon.

'I lived over half my life before I met you both, and I hope with all my heart to live many years more. You two are the reason why. Always, always the reason why.'

Abi Cooper is living her happy ending. She's in remission and is ready to make the most of her second chance. But during Abi's illness, her family has fallen apart. Her husband, John, has made decisions that are about to come back to haunt him while her teenage son, Seb, is battling with a secret of his own. Set to the songs on Abi's survival playlist, This Beautiful Life is the moving and uplifting story of what happens as Abi tries to put her family back together - and of why life and love are worth fighting for.

“Make it stop”

“Make it stop” was the one sentence that my inner voice had on loop throughout listening to this book!
Alex Tregear did a good job, but I’m sure I heard her cringing during some of the unbearable banter between the siblings and best friend. The relationships and their interactions were so wooden, I got the impression that the author is an only child with no friends or family.

Swearing

Far too many unnecessary swear words which added nothing to this book. This spoilt it for me
