Lost and Found
And I loved it.
I read the book over a weekend, barely putting it down until I had finished. I was gambolling to the end, almost needing to know how the story went but also wanting to savour it – one of those lovely books I have spoken about before.
There is a time in everyone’s life that I think they become aware of their own mortality and then they become aware of those around them. Dying has never scared me – but being left behind whilst others around me die does. And in this story Roxanne Pellegrino finds out about this the hard way when her beloved husband suddenly dies right out of the blue. Roxanne is left reeling – she’s trying to come to terms with how to continue in life whilst also feeling very guilty for not being able to save her husband.
