Many thanks to Rachel and Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this Blog Tour.
A poignant tale set in dual timelines, the story tugged my heartstrings with its gentle unveiling of the story of Ted in 1935 and Tilly in the present times.
Ted found love with Annie in the same railway station where Tilly now found herself after a bitter divorce. The story unfurled with Tilly getting to the truth of Ted’s story as it happened years ago and healing herself in the process.
My first book by author Kathless McGurl, the story was told in alternate chapters with Tilly and Ted’s POV. I loved the cross section of their stories. It seemed that both were slowly moving toward each other. The characters were etched so carefully with a loving pen. I felt both Ted and Tilly were so lovable with equally unlikable, selfish partners.
Pain of a broken relationship brought a tear to my eye, I could see myself in Tilly. Ted was simply awesome, a generous, kind soul who sacrificed everything and loved from his very being. The author’s control over the story had me rushing through the pages. There was an enticing magic in the prose which kept me read from beginning to end at one go.
It was a perfect read on a rainy afternoon where the emotions in the book enveloped me in its loving folds.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
