“A beautiful love story. Quite simply stunning and poetic.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
This is only a short read but what a lovely read. Billed as quite possibly the strangest romance ever told, it quite possibly is, but it is also beautiful and charming and unexpected. And the cover is totally perfect for this book.
The story of Rosie and Tom is told through two timelines, the present day and just before the second world war, when they first met. The story shows how love endures no matter what..
..But all is not what it seems.
I loved the characters; Rosie who would fight to her last breath for what she wants, and Tom who was such a sweet, caring man. I loved Chrissie for her care and empathy when all around her people seemed to be losing theirs. If only there were more Chrissies in the world it would be a far better place.
It is very difficult to review this book as I don’t want to give any spoilers away, but it is beautifully written, heartwarming and so different. And at only 86 pages long can be read in one sitting, but you’ll wish for more.
