Review by Tanya
I was sent this book by Suzanne as part of my Christmas box and it was my first read of the New Year and what a great way to start a reading year. I was captured from the first chapter. I don’t want to give too much away about the story line as it will disappoint anyone who decides to read it, but I will tell you to have tissues to hand as you will need them.
 Lucy and Luke are the main characters and they have a married relationship that everyone would dream of.  Their love for each other is shown by the gestures they make, the understanding of each other and the effort they make to please each other. The only sad point and one which could have devastating effects on anyone’s relationship is the numerous miscarriages that they suffer and the pain and upset that it causes. I felt so sorry for Lucy and Luke and wanted to hold them in my arms and kept wishing for them.
I love the way that the relationship between Lucy and Patricia, Luke’s mum, develops through the book and how things that happen bring them closer. I was often shocked by how strong Lucy appears to be in many aspects and I wonder if my reaction would be so strong.  I cried with Lucy throughout the book and wanted to scream many times on her behalf. 
This book is not an easy read for anyone experiencing conceiving problems or family health issues but I would recommend it for all others. This is not a negative point just a recommendation. It would also be a great read for any book group as it allows for lots of discussion. I can see this book being in my top choices already for the year of 2015.

  2. Here's the part of my book review:
    The love of music and penetration into the sphere of the classical symphonies was made up by a rather festive style of shooting in the 5th part of the "Small Organ School". This style persists in the moment that Joe recalls: while still a little girl, she felt the nature, simply lying on the grass. At the same time, we see that it represents an act for her. This penetration into another world, in which it is its own, is part of this world.
