This is definitely one type of book I truly try to stay away from. My beliefs are very strong when it comes to the afterlife, angels, and things like that. I'm an avid believer, but I feel that it is hard to put it down on paper to make it real. Well in this case I was wrong. I was totally memorized by this book. The author took a very sensitive topic and made it so real, that it makes you believe. She told a sad story, and made it about hope and trust. There is honestly nothing about this book that I can say I hated or thought it could be better. The storyline was impeccable, no lines were crossed, and it was told beautifully.
Its starts with a deep tragedy, one that will throw anyone through a loop. The sadness that overwhelms you at the beginning, only gives you hope that something in the book will change. To let go of someone is not easy, especially if you DONT want to, and well that is how this story starts. How can you recover if you DONT want to. How do you live if you DONT want to. And most importantly how do you begin to live again? I can't go into details of this book, but I can tell you that this book gives you hope that everyone can heal sometime.
I absolutely love this book. I would recommend this book to many people and hope they get out of it what I did; there is someone looking out for you, you DONT have to see them to realize they are there to guide you through life, no matter what is dealt.
An avid reader since her childhood years and being an only child, Roberta always enjoyed the company of her fictional friends from the children’s books she loved reading, while she dreamed of writing her own stories one day. It was when she discovered novels by authors Rosamunde Pilcher and Maeve Binchy in her teenage years that she realized it was time she put down in words the stories she had kept well hidden in her mind until then. What started as a hobby, soon turned into a real passion and a way of life, until she could no longer keep the stories to herself, and decided to get over her fears and share them with the world. Roberta lives in Italy, but her dream is to move out of her country and live either in a thatched cottage in the Irish countryside or in a country house with a swing on the back porch, somewhere in the United States, where she would love to spend her days writing novels as a full-time job, and maybe one day even get as far as writing a screenplay for a movie.
