Blurb: Imagine you meet a man, spend seven glorious days together, and fall in love. And it’s mutual: you’ve never been so certain of anything.
So when he leaves for a long-booked holiday and promises to call from the airport, you have no cause to doubt him.
But he doesn’t call.
Your friends tell you to forget him, but you know they’re wrong: something must have happened; there must be a reason for his silence.
What do you do when you finally discover you’re right? That there is a reason – and that reason is the one thing you didn’t share with each other?
Review: First off whatever you think this books about forget it. Whatever you were assuming is completely wrong – expect the unexpected.
This book is for every single girl who’s waited and waited for a man to call and he simply hasn’t. You had such a fantastic time together and you’re adamant that you’ll meet again but it’s not meant to be.
I toyed with whether to read or listen to this beauty and I opted for the audio. Narration is a massive thing for me and Katherine Press reads Rosie Walsh’s words so well.
OMG! So everything I expected from this novel was flipped on its head. I started thinking I could see what the truth was but my oh my I was so so wrong. Just when I thought I had the main essence of this story well and truly sussed Rosie threw a massive curve ball my way and I was left speechless and eager for more.
Everything about how this novel was written had me on the edge of my toes wanting more, as the end neared though I found myself halting time as I just didn’t want it to end. Rosie has a distinctive style, she has managed to create a love story of sorts and what could be described as a girlie read, with a twist and a totally thrilling aspect to boot. It’s one of those books where you will wholeheartedly think you know how it’s going to end and bam you are completely clueless with dramatic results.
I enjoyed how this novel focuses on the north of Gloucester and of the USA. This novel has it all families – their grief, feuds and so much more. Friends, loneliness, love, health and well-being just to name a few, and most importantly self care and in some aspects the lack of self care. Most of the voice is from Sarah but from time to time other characters voices spring forward.
This is a book that will stay with you long after the last line. It will make you think about your actions in many aspects of life. And sometimes he just doesn’t call for good reason.
I honestly cannot wait to see what Rosie Walsh does next. I’m definitely a fan and the hype over this book is well and truly warranted. Don’t delay get it today you won’t regret it.
