This book looks at grief, love, and lies. What seemed like the perfect family, isn’t all it seems after an unfortunate accident…
After the loss of husband and father Chris, Clara and Morgan couldn’t be further apart from each other, more so than they should be for a mother and daughter. Whilst Morgan begins to learn the truth about her late husband and sister, Clara begins to find comfort in an unexpected boy. With the truths coming out and Morgan wanting to keep it from Clara, it pushes them further and further apart, almost to the point of hate! Will things ever be the same again? Probably not, but they could be better…
I LOVED this book. I finished it in less than 24 hours, I just couldn’t put it down! It really focuses well on the relationship between a mother and daughter, as the chapters flick between each of Morgan’s and Clara’s perspectives, and this works really, really well for the story. I really do feel for Morgan throughout, having to keep secrets from Clara, and letting her believe the worst in her mother. As a mother, that can’t be easy at all!
You also see Clara evolve throughout the story after going through what she does, you see her change and grow up from the girl she is in the beginning.
I’m a huge advocate for Colleen Hoover and her novels. Each book I’ve read I’ve fell in love with straight from the off, and I don’t get that with many books (I’m quite picky believe it or not). So I really can’t wait for my next one… Possibly Verity!
I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading a lil’ bit of family drama!
