This is just the most gorgeous novel .. and the one which began my love affair with Faith Hogan’s writing!
When Ireland’s leading cardiologist dies at the scene of a car crash, several women are left behind, grieving and bereft. As they find out about each other, hostile feelings raise their ugly heads but, as the saying goes, time is a great healer and their shared love of Paul Starr has the amazing effect of soothing ruffled feathers and the tentative feelers of friendship begin to show.
This is a stunning, emotionally-charged read and what a superb debut! It’s such a well-conceived idea and shows that woman don’t always need to be at each other’s throats (especially over a man!). I adore the re-vamped cover! Each character is well-developed, and the readers’ empathy is drawn out for each one of them. The beautiful writing pulled me in, and it’s so well-crafted it is an absolute pleasure to read. I so loved this and, as a result of reading it, am a firm fan of everything this author produces. In fact, I eagerly watch out for any new novels and haven’t missed any of them. This is a top read from a first class author and I would award it double star rating if I could. As it it, my five stars are so excited that they are dancing!
