My Thoughts & Review:

This book certainly didn’t start as I thought it might, Rosie Draper, nearing 65 loses her husband Mike to cancer……initially, I wondered what I was letting myself in for, but somehow, Sue Watson manages to turn this tragic event into something that draws the reader in slowly.  
Rosie, feeling that she has had her happiness, is ready to move on in her grief and settle for living out her days peacefully with the memories of her husband.  Never in her wildest dreams does she imagine a chance meeting with her first boyfriend.  

The romance aspect to the book was really well written, heartfelt and uplifting to read.  Reading how Rosie coped with the loss of her husband and struggling to get back to a place mentally where she could go on was very carefully written.  Care and consideration was shown by the author to this sensitive aspect of the book and for that I am grateful.  All to often authors brush over this and never really attempt to put into words how events such as this can impact on the characters left behind.  
Rosie is a lovely character, she teaches us so much – never to give up hope, never to give up on love but most importantly hindsight is something we have to learn from. 
All of her characters are realistic and most people will be able to identify with them, I loved the way they all seemed to open up and develop as realisations dawned upon them.  
Sue Watson writes a wonderful book, with a strong female lead character, some romance but most of all, she gives the reader pause for thought.  This book was exceptionally good at making me reflect on things and inspiring hope for what lies ahead.  More than I bargained for when I first read the description of the book, but I am so glad that I did read this one.  

I would definitely recommend this book, it’s the sort of heart warming story that cannot fail to capture the attention of readers, and their hearts in places too. This was the first book written by Sue Watson that I have read, but it definitely won’t be the only one, having thoroughly enjoyed this, I will be searching Amazon later for more of her books to enjoy!
