Synopsis - Is there ever a right time to let go? HOW DO YOU LEAVE THE PERSON YOU LOVE THE MOST? Will
Curtis’s six-year-old daughter, Ella, knows her father will never leave
her. After all, he promised her so when her mother died. And he’s going
to do everything he can to keep his word. What Will doesn’t know
is that the promise he made to his little girl might be harder to keep
than he imagined. When he’s faced with an impossible decision, Will
finds that the most obvious choice might not be the right one. But
the future is full of unexpected surprises. And father and daughter are
about to embark on an unforgettable journey together . . .
The writing style and characters were wonderful and the book had buckets of beautiful potential that didn't really deliver. If I had to put my finger on it, I'd say the deciding factor for me was lack of emotion. The protagonist has died and his child is left orphaned. Then the child's left reeling again when her grandfather suffers a tragedy and eventually dies himself. A LOT went on in just a few pages but I never felt it emotionally. I'm the kind of girl who cries as TV adverts but I didn't even get a lump in my throat.
As I said - the book wasn't bad. The story was intriguing and at times, thought provoking. Sadly I just think it was pitched incorrectly and I wasn't the right reader for the story because of this.
On that note - if anyone has any recs for big time heartbreakers - PLEASE send them my way! Sometimes you just can't beat a good cry.
