This could very well become one of my new favourite authors in this genre, right between Carole Matthews, Lucy Dillon, Cecilia Ahern and the likes. It’s just such a relatable story, if you are not a mum and you don’t have teenagers yet, you will in any case remember how it was to be one. Didn’t we all feel that the communication with our parents at the time was difficult to say the least? They did not understand what we were saying and vice versa. Well that’s exactly what’s happening with Nin and her mother Louise. The story is told from each person’s perspective and lets us in on the difficulties of their communication. What they say and what the other person hears is not exactly the same and this certainly doesn’t benefit their bond, they even seem to drift apart because of it. With her husband gone for six weeks, Louise feels lonely and when she tries to spend some time with her daughter, she gets rebuked. Caroline aka Nin then inadvertently scoffs her mother when she sees her message on Facebook and it gets even worse when she laughs while she finds her mother in a struggle with the dogs in the bathroom. Both sides are so understandable and we can only hope they will find each other again. The story was sweet and touching and even though it is a rather short story, not even 60 pages, the story feels complete and it was truly a joy to read.
I received a free copy of this book from GenuineJenn in exchange for my honest opinion ( )
