The Love of Her Life by Harriet Evans
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I had high hopes for this book having really enjoyed Love Always by Harriet Evans. With the promise on the back, “You will cry guaranteed” and the glittery bling on the cover it seemed destined to be read and loved. Not so much.
In all honesty, it was hard to empathize with Kate Miller having just read about two profoundly strong and courageous female protagonists. Kate flees her life in London after a painful experience and heads to New York. Her reasons for leaving revealed, while tragic and indeed painful, weren’t enough to pull it all together for me. I found myself intrigued and more interested in the storyline of Zoe, her best friend, and her struggles to rebuild her life and those of her children after the tragedy that changes her life forever. Disappointing.
