My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review* 

I was over the moon, when this book landed on my doorstep and I have been excited to read it ever since. Let me tell you one thing: It will not disappoint.

We follow the story of Jess and her family. She had her son William in her early twenties and that's where we meet her in the prologue. William's father Adam doesn't make a good impression in that scene. So it's no surprise that 10 years later, he is not in the picture anymore and lives in France. Jess' mum doesn't like this idea and encourages Jess to make Adam a part of their lives. Jess dad is enjoying being being a grandfather. Well, Jess decides to visit Adam in France, where both her and William spend a lot of times with Adam. It's not always easy, but it's actually great to see them as a family. 

I absolutely adored all the characters. They all have their own story to tell and Catherine Isaac found a great way to include them all in the storyline. They all seem very authentic and the author put a lot of detail behind them. William gives the story a fresh touch as well. I also really like the author's writing style. The scenes were so lively, engaging and full of emotions. A difficult and devastating mentioned as well and kind of leads things in the plot. I dont want to tell you more here, just read the book! 

The book includes so much: difficult topics, family, memorable scenes, wonderful characters, love and so much more. The way the story is told, makes the reader hooked and it's a place you never want to leave again. 

An amazing story, full of fascinating details!! BRILLIANT and BEAUTIFUL!!!
