WHAT I SAY
Pieces of You is a beautiful and moving read that had me hooked from the first few lines to the last word I couldn’t put it down until I knew what happened so glad i start very early in morning

The book tells the story of Lucy and Luke. They have been together for 8 years, and married for 5. It was clear from the start just how absolutely besotted they are with each other it was so nice to read The one thing missing for them is a much wanted baby. They have been trying for years, but each pregnancy has ended in miscarriage and heartbreak. It was so hard to read at times

Early on in the book we learn that Luke has had a terrible accident and has been left in a coma.Lucy faces more shock and heart ache now

This story follow Lucy and Luke’s story, We meet their best friends Dee and Dan, as well as Luke’s Mum, brother and sister.

I really liked Dee who I felt was very much Lucy’s best friend and would be there for her no matter what just like a friend should be
I struggled to warm to was Patricia that was Luke’s Mum. I found her quite cold and distant towards Lucy despite what she was going through. I want her to be warm and loving I know that as a Mum she must have been so worried and distraught to see her son so ill and she could do nothing to help him but i would i like to see more support for Lucy

Lucy was favourite character It is clear that the last few years have been just awful for her with all the miscarriage misery.My heart when out to her Now Luke has been in an accident and lies in a coma, leaving Lucy not knowing what the future holds. I loved the way she coped with things she just such a strong character I admired her so much

Each chapter follows a different character
This helps me to understand what was going on and how they all felt it was very emotional it deals with some very tough subject so well i packed with a few twists and turns too

This book is so beautifully written it a wonderful story of love, loss, forgiveness and acceptance.This book stay in my head long after they had read it i kept thinking about the story

I was hooked from the start it a page turner you get took on a roller coaster ride you will feel and see all different emotions love ,passion ,anger heartbreak and despair but the main you see is that not matter what life throws at us we should never gave up hope things can and will get better not matter what it a very emotional read very heartbreaking too

I can not praise this book enough you must read it

I not sure why is been on my TBR pile so long you must read it a brilliant book
