Heartwarming well written romance

I love Lisa Jewell's books so started this one with high expectations. I was not disappointed whilst it was not a psychological thriller it was beautifully written and I really became invested in Vince and Joy and their story. I would recommend this book as a great holiday read perfect for a long flight or the beach. I also enjoyed the narration and actually found a male narrator that I warmed to. Would recommend this book to anyone wanting a good old-fashioned love story.

Very enjoyable

Lovely read, a love story which is quite realistic about love stories that aren’t that perfect. Dealing with divorce not being a taboo in a love story book.

Loved it

I wish I didn't have to leave Vince and Joy behind when the book ended. I enjoyed it start to end and this was helped by the excellent dual narration.

Surprisingly gripping

As others have said, this is no psychological thriller but it is strangely gripping. I became so invested in the characters and the stories felt so real and relatable. I loved it.

Excellent

This was a very well constructed and enjoyable book.
The characters were all believable and I felt empathy with all of them. But the intricacies of the plot were very good and so cleverly managed.
It would make a great film!

Great story but was hoping for a better ending

Really great love story of love loss and separation through the ages. Written well and performed brilliantly with two separate actors which helps to cement which character you're listening to. The only thing that I was disappointed by was the ending. I was really hoping for some kind of epilogue or more finishing off after all the build up. Still enjoyed it though and would listen again.

Disappointing

Have loved all Lisa’s other books. Perhaps I didn’t give this long enough but a couple of hours in I was bored. So returned it. Sorry ...

Enjoyable easy listen, kept me interested

I enjoyed this book. It is not the best book I've ever read, but its enjoyable, interesting and it kept me interested throughout.
I would have liked there to be just one more chapter to conclude.
I recommend.
The narrator has some great accents.

Love this so much.

I have recently found Lisa Jewell and discovered that I adore her writing. She has a beautiful way of weaving a story and this one pulls you all over the placed. Loved all the characters, even the awful ones. Wish I’d never read it so I could read it again.
