I am absolutely thrilled to share with you my first review for a blog tour. Big thank you to Rachel @Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me and thank you to Allison & Busby for my copy. New author to A&B, Sylvia Broady whose previous books with Robert Hale have built a very strong fan base. Comes a new gripping family saga set in gritty 1930’s Hull.
My Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A child is the most precious of gifts…. what would you do if that gift was snatched from you in the most cruel way?
A wonderfully woven story beginning in the between years of war. Alice’s story starts with an accident and lose of memory of her life before. Slowly but surely things begin to piece back together and we are taken on a journey full of love, heartache, self discovery and learning. Alice speaks of her mother at one point as a person with overwhelming grit and determination and the immense pride she feels for her. This is testament to her character. I felt the same way about her and saw the same traits in her as well as her resilience, kindness and strength. There is a great array of characters that add depth and intensity to the story. A sweet, emotional, beautiful, thoroughly descriptive and hopeful story at time of great trepidation with a wonderful insight into nursing during war time. A full circle story that ends in such a heartwarming way.
