Hannah Bonam-Young is one of those writers that could probably write a book about what goes into making paper, and it would still be the best thing ever written. I read and loved Next of Kin earlier this year, so obviously I knew I was going to love this one as well. And, I already love all of the stories she hasn’t written yet.
Meeting Hannah was totally by chance, thanks to a friend who read and loved her debut, Next of Kin. And when I accepted an early copy of the book, I didn’t know what to expect. The wonderful storytelling, the heartfelt emotions and the unique characters that stood out on every page were absolutely brilliant.
First of all, it’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that this is Hannah’s debut. Because this book is not only heartwarming and joyful, it’s so well written. I read it in two sittings (on the same day), because once I started, the story flowed so beautifully, I couldn’t bring myself to put it down.
