Beth is determined to forget the past. But even when she leaves New York to start afresh in a Lake District village, she can’t shake the secrets that haunt her.
Single dad Simon still holds a candle for the woman who left him years ago. Every day is a struggle to earn a living while caring for his beloved son. He has no time for finding someone new.
But Jake is determined his plan will succeed – and what unfolds will change all three of them forever.
I have been a fan of Katie Marsh’s writing since her debut novel My Everything that became a bestseller in 2015. Katie now returns with her latest Unbreak Your Heart (Hodder). A story of broken hearts and is also a love story that will make you laugh and will move you.
Katie has a real gift for writing such beautiful novels, the characters she creates for her stories are so real and here in Unbreak Your Heart There are three main characters in her latest novel.
Beth has left her life behind in New York and starting a new life in the beautiful setting of the Lake District, a place that can heal many a broken heart, but Beth is struggling to leave her past life behind. Sometimes life throws up chance encounters that were always meant to be and it is a sudden encounter with seven-year-old Jake, that is just such an encounter even if the first meeting is an accident. Simon is Jake’s father, and we get to meet the three characters stories as Jake is suffering from a heart condition, Simon is a single father and Jake is fully aware of his heart problem and his fear is that one day he will be leaving his dad alone and so wants to find someone to be there for the father he loves so much. Jake’s condition is so serious that Simon is not able to work and so he spends his days with his son.
Life can be a real struggle in a situation where you are a single parent alone and looking after your child whose health is so serious and the financial implications this brings. At this point I am not going to give any more away as I want you to discover the story of Beth, Jake, and Simon. It is a story that is just so full of love, and you will begin to understand why each day is so important and just how important it is to love.
Yes, Katie Marsh you have done it again.
