The First Leg of the tour ends today – Day 20 and Megan’s Review.
“𝐑𝐞𝐯𝐢𝐞𝐰 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐋𝐢𝐞𝐬 – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Do you ever finish a book, turn the last page and wonder why the author has written a story so utterly devastating, so sad, so painful. 𝘋𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘸𝘰𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳 𝘸𝘩𝘺 𝘢 𝘣𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘷𝘦𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘸𝘦𝘦𝘱𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘴, 𝘶𝘯𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘶𝘱 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘢𝘪𝘳? Then realise why.
Why, to teach us all a lesson, to remind us life is worth living, a reminder life is short, cruel but beautiful.
𝐂𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐡 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐥𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭.
A devastating story of a mother, daughter, wife, and friend on the quiet journey to her last days, a journey of cancer and the pain that brings, leading Jane to make reasonable lies to everyone she loves.
Lies that protect, lies that soften, and lies that give time.
On the way, meeting someone she never knew could mean so much, and treasuring those around her more than she ever thought she needed to.
This story was hard-hitting but taught many a lesson, the most important being to check your breasts. Man or woman, feel them, know them, check them. Please.
A wonderfully easy-to-read writing style, a charming collection of characters so easily bonded with, and a thought-provoking story that will hold a tender place in my heart.
As I am about to start my journey into hospice nursing, I am sure this book was timed perfect for me.”
