Pieces of my Life – Rachel Dann

“So many of them, especially – I am sad to say – the women, are just victims of circumstance”

Goodreads Synopsis:Pieces of My Life

A journey she never expected…
Kirsty is happy. Really, she is. After five years with her boyfriend, Harry, she’s ready to take things to the next step and turn that spare room into a little nursery. And she thought Harry was too.

Only, it turns out that Harry’s ‘big news’ is actually not that he wants to try for a baby, but that he wants to travel to South America – with Kirsty! She’ll just have to trust that after their trip of a lifetime, Harry will be ready to settle down for good.

Arriving in hot, steamy Ecuador it soon becomes clear that Harry is hiding something. Something that he’s been hiding for years. And as Kirsty’s dreams are at risk of shattering, she begins to pick up the pieces of the life that she’s put off for so long…

Review:

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is another book I would recommend for a beach and wine kinda day, it’s a nice easy read but one that does have more then a few surprises up it’s sleeve. I do love a good self discovery/personal growth book and this one really does deliver. What I really loved about this book was that it does not just focus on Kirsty and Harry’s relationship, but focuses on her relationship with her parents as well, I felt that this really helped develop Kristy’s character as well as add some great side stories within the novel. The ‘secret’ that Harry is hiding is relatively easy to guess at the beginning of the book but I do like that it is not actually revealed to early. My favourite aspect of the book was that it was able to challenge my beliefs regarding the prisoners. It was great to see varying points of views and people’s reasons behind decisions and mistakes they may of made. Sometimes I feel personally I am too quick to judge so it’s always good to have something that makes you stop and think. Overall a great read.

Rating: 4.5/5
