The Secrets We Share by Emma Hanningan
Thanks to LoveReading.co.uk I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.....
Meet Clara Conway, an 80 year old lady who has been a very successful businesswoman, a loving wife and mother but in turn has a few secrets that she hopes can be kept that way. Her family is falling apart, her son Max emigrated to the US years ago where his abrupt disappearance left the Conway family heartbroken and she has yet to meet her teenage granddaughter Nathalie, because Max and his mother no longer speak. Tragedy strikes in the US and Clara unexpectedly reaches out to Nathalie where she is sent off to Ireland to spend some time with her grandmother and Aunts. Will the secrets that have been held so deep resurface? Is this a chance to heal old wounds and become a family again??
I didn't just like it, I really LOVED it. It reminded me alot of the time I would spend with my Nana when I was growing up, whether it be going out together or just visiting her and how much I loved been around her. It is a very bittersweet & heart-warming read, the story flows well throughout the book. I really enjoyed Emma's book which I read in a couple of days, it kept me turning the pages until the very end. This story had it all a little bit of humor, love, family, protectiveness to more sensitive and hard-hitting issues - I found I had a little tear in my eye at the end along with shedding a few along the way, so grab this book, curl up on the couch and prepare to have a few lump in your throat moments too. It definitely didn't disappoint.
The Secrets We Share is available to pre-order on Kindle and will be published on 9th April 2015.
