The first of my holiday reads! I was able to get most of this one read on the plane. This was a book I had seen advertised on facebook and quite fancied so popped it on the kindle. It tells the story of a family following the seemingly inexplicable collapse of their eldest daughter. Told from the stay at home dad’s point of view it is an insightful read into the lives of people who suddenly find untimely death a tangible reality. A family whose life has changed in a thousand ways that most people would never even realise. Having experienced serious illness in our family I found this to be a really accurate read, although our situations were very different so many issues were similar. The book is interspersed with information about the rebuilding Coventry cathedral after the war which is interesting as well as serving to illustrate points about rebuilding life after devastating destruction.
It’s a great read with a warm and realistic heart.
