READ that sentence above again!
Because WOW it is true – The life we almost had by Amelia Henley won’t be the book you are expecting. It is not a typical romantic comedy. Far, far from it.
But I was a little bit in two minds about it. I loved the writing, I loved the gorgeous holiday setting – I for one could use a lovely sunny holiday drinking cocktails next to the pool about now, who couldn’t!?!?!
I just found some of it tough reading. The book doesn’t shy away from fertility issues and tragedy and has some scientific aspects which were interesting, but not fully explored. I felt it was a book of 2 halves, I loved the beginning but I found myself questioning a few things further on. Sorry for being cryptic but – SPOILERS!
Have a read of the book blurb for yourself…
This is not a typical love story, but it’s our love story.
Anna wasn’t looking for love when Adam swept her off her feet but there was no denying their connection, and she believed they would be together forever.
Years later, cracks have appeared in their relationship. Anna is questioning whether their love can really be eternal when a cruel twist of fate delivers a crushing blow, and Anna and Adam are completely lost to one another. Now, Anna needs Adam more than ever, but the way back to him has life-changing consequences.
Is a second chance at first love really worth the sacrifice? Anna needs to decide and time is running out…
A beautiful and emotional love story that asks, how far would you go for a second chance at first love? Perfect for fans of The Man Who Didn’t Call and Miss You.
It seems to be a book that has touched a lot of hearts.
I received a copy of The life we almost had by Amelia Henley from the publisher, which was all arranged by the blog tour organiser – Thank you!
