Thank you to Beauty and Lace Book Club and Hachette Australia for providing me with a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
This book was a nice read, but for me at least, it wasn’t a great read. It wasn’t until well over halfway that I wanted to keep reading to see how it turned out.
This was a nice story about a man who is drowning in grief after the loss of his wife, he has just about checked out from his life and if it wasn’t for his young son, he wouldn’t feel any need to carry on.
Through a promise he made his wife before she dies, he makes himself start writing letters to her about his life now that she has gone, and he leaves them in a draw he had made in her headstone at the cemetery. Through these letters, he learns to live with his grief and to eventually find reasons to keep on living and to love again.
There is a mystery that starts part-way through when his letters disappear and there are little tokens left in their place. It sends him into a bit of a tether while he tries to determine who is leaving them and whether they are messages from his wife from beyond the grave.
A sweet novel with a lovely message and a happy outcome.

No, I guess not, it’s a shame though as this was one I was really looking forward to.
