"I have to say this is the worst book I…"
I have to say this is the worst book I have ever read,badly written and not a single believable character.my friends and I reviewed this for Richard and judys book club and couldn't think of one good thing to say about it,I'm amazed so many mumsnetters like it but then each to their own,if we were all the same the world would be very boring!Read moreLess
"Although not a new book it was my favourite read…"
Although not a new book it was my favourite read last year. It is very emotional and had me crying from the first chapter. The story is believable and so are the characters.
It is essentially a love story from beyond the grave and tells the aftermath of young couple torn apart by death and how she learns to cope andmove forward in her life.
After reading the book I was desperate to watch the film - which I was disappointed with as I felt the book was more emotional and my characters were better than the actors concieved ideas of how to play the characters!Read moreLess

"Call me a cynic but being Bertie Ahern's daughter may…"
Call me a cynic but being Bertie Ahern's daughter may have helped this author's career. Bertie Ahern was the Prime Minister of Ireland when this was written. however, I loved it and it is set in places I come from which is comforting. A light read with bits that make you think, especially if you have lost loved ones. Loved the film too apart from Gerry Butler's accent which went from Dublin to Derry faster than the train can - and that's from a big GB fan. Read it and weep..I didRead moreLess

It was just a fantastic read - I didn't want to put it down - I just wanted to read chapter after chapter to see what the next letter Gerry had sent said. It was heart-warming and sad, and I probably shed more tears reading this book than any other, but it was such a good book.Read moreLess

As you read this book you almost feel that you are with Holly on her sad journey through her first year as a widow. Your tears fall alongside Holly's at the sad times and also tears of laughter at the funny moments. This book warms your heart and it is almost sad to leave Holly at the end of the book.

"This really is brilliant book. I first read it many…"
This really is brilliant book. I first read it many years ago and couldn't wait for the film to be made, but actually found that to be a disappointment. So if you've seen the film, you really must read the book. Yes, it's sad, and you will shed a few tears, but it's also funny and heartwarming and SO MUCH BETTER than the film. I promise once you start reading it, you won't want to put it down. You can't wait for the next chapter and the next letter!Read moreLess
