A compelling, heartbreaking tale that will make you laugh, cry and believe in the kindness of strangers. Perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes, Lucy Dillon and Miranda Dickinson.

Life is good for nurse Kat. That is until the man she intended to marry legs it, she’s unexpectedly promoted to a position with too much responsibility, and a patient arrives on her ward under strange circumstances.

Susan is a mystery. She refuses to speak or interact with anyone, she’s obsessed with a book of fairy tales, and the only name in her diary is that of Rhys – a plumber she barely knows.

Down-to-earth Rhys is trying to get his life back on track after the death of his beloved brother. His mum is his priority, and she needs him as much as he needs her. Or at least she did, until she starts disappearing, leaving him to find comfort in the form of his brother’s girlfriend.

Complicated is an understatement.

As the lives of these three lost strangers intertwine, will they find a way to lay ghosts past, present and future to rest? And when the chance comes to mend their broken hearts, will they be brave enough to take it?


Thank you Netgalley and Bookouture for a digital free copy of this book.

The story is depressing. It really does affects my mood. That’s why it so hard to move forward and made progress in this book.

I like the idea how Kat, Susan and Rhys got connected to each other. They are all unique and have their own issues. All of them have their own story to tell. This book is about not losing hope and never giving up on life.

I also like how Ms. Anne Mansell wrote. But I’m really at loss for words. I can’t put how I felt when read this. For me, it’s too heavy to read.

I’m giving this 3.5 stars overall.
