United by tragedy, can two broken souls make each other whole?
After the tragic loss of his wife, Helen, Luke Hansard is desperate to keep her memory alive. In an effort to stay close to her, he reaches out to an online friend Helen often mentioned: a reclusive photographer with a curious interest in beautiful but broken objects. But first he must find her—and she doesn’t want to be found.
Orla Kendrick lives alone in the ruins of a remote Suffolk castle, hiding from the haunting past that has left her physically and emotionally scarred. In her fortress, she can keep a safe distance from prying eyes, surrounded by her broken treasures and insulated from the world outside.
When Luke tracks Orla down, he is determined to help her in the way Helen wanted to: by encouraging her out of her isolation and back into the world. But Orla has never seen her refuge as a prison and, when painful secrets and dangerous threats begin to resurface, Luke’s good deed is turned on its head.
As they work through their grief for Helen in very different ways, will these two broken souls be able to heal?
Wow oh wow, how have I not read anything by this author before? I don’t know how any review I write for this will do it justice. Connelly is a new author for me, this being my first read- definitely won’t be the last. I will be eagerly adding more to my TBR.
This is a beautifully written story which is easy to relate to. I have found this to be both heart warming and uplifting. The author has captivated me from the very first page and I feel as though I’ve just watched a Netflix film rather than read a book. That’s how clear a picture this author has created. This was hard to put down, I found myself completely immersed in this story.
This is definitely a five star book for me. The characters are fantastic, the plot flows at the appropriate pace. This is definitely one which I feel should be on everyone’s TBR. It has definitely lifted my mood and I cannot wait to read more.
