This is a magical book in every sense of the word. Basically a story about a young widow whose husband once made her a promise - that if he died before she did, he would see to it that she found someone else to love, he would send somebody for her. Of course he does die in a car accident, and two years on Angela can't seem to recover. So she calls him on his promise. But the book is more than a woman's story of loss and recovery, it's about a mother and a daughter who learn that soul mates come in many different forms and they aren't always the people we marry. Angela and her crazy but adorable mum Vivien go on a holiday to Greece where Angela meets two men who seem to know so much about her... can Jonathan have sent her one of these men? And how will she find out? This story is so warm and touching and yet so absurdly hilarious that I laughed out loud on the tube reading it. It's full of northern humour and the characters get under your skin and don't leave. There is a scene in the middle that is so magical and full of feeling that I don't think I'll ever forget it. It's a great read. I was sorry it had to end.Read moreLess
