Seeing this gorgeous cover on Social Media and my lovely friend Tara's review, put this book on my radar.
I pre- ordered it.
Since then I saw quite a few posts that reiterated what an emotion read When it Rains, is. I actually have the full quote near my front door.
The blurb is more than enough in telling it is going to be a bitter sweet journey. I
I read this book in two sittings and suggest you take yourself to your comfortable reading place (unless this is in a local coffee shop or similar!), a mug of tea/coffee, and a blanket, tissues and snuggle under and learn the lesson that Annie wants to pass on to Holly before it is too late.
Within the pages I got intertwined with the characters lives so quickly and felt I was with them every heart-breaking, poignant, humorous step.
the "Book" within the book was such a wonderful way to deliver this story to us.
The raw emotions that were brought to the pages were astounding. I found it very difficult to put this book down, I admit to sobbing more than once for the characters, so why recommend a book that leaves you utterly speechless, sobbing and a wreck when finished?
It is a beautifully crafted piece of writing with characters and messages that will bring you so much. You will feel like you have been taken in to the heart of the family and there are lessons, issues that have touched us all and Brooke Harris brings this to us making the book personal and real.
If you love books like the Notebook and Me Before you, this is a definite read for you. I highly recommend it and it will be a book that I shall read either fully or passages of again.
