ELLA HARPER

 

Pieces of You (2014)

 

Lucy Harte works as a florist and is married to the love of her life, paramedic Luke. Everyone knows Lucy and Luke are soulmates - the real deal. However, after eight years of trying to have a baby together without any luck, things aren't going so well. Lucy wants nothing more than to have a child of her own and, even after the numerous miscarriages, she secretly has high hopes for their last IVF treatment. But then, completely unexpected, Lucy's world comes crashing down and suddenly she is forced to rethink everything and make some decisions that will change her life for ever. This book was just as compelling and heartbreaking as other readers had told me it would be; what an incredible novel by Sasha Wagstaff writing under a pen-name. The story is told from three female perspectives: the main character Lucy, her sister-in-law Nell, and her mother-in-law. The characters are really well-rounded and each had their own interesting point of view to share and story to tell. The strongest aspect of this book is undoubtedly the amazing love between Lucy and Luke. It is so obvious that these two characters are meant to be together, but at the same time the book shows that even people madly in love with one another have to overcome struggles and fight for their relationship. The blurb of the book gives away a large part of the plotline, but there were still a few twists in the story I did not see coming. This novel is so well-written and emotional; I didn't want to put it down before I knew what would eventually happen to Lucy. Somehow, this book is incredibly real and my thoughts were still on the characters a couple of days after I'd finished it. Pieces of You is an incredibly compelling, powerful, heart-breaking novel.
