I must have heard about this book somewhere and liked the sound of it because it’s been on my tbr for a while and it’s not in my favourite genre or by an author I have read before and I’m pleased to say that I really enjoyed it. Although, due to the subject matter, I’m not sure ‘enjoyed’ is the correct term.
Lucy and Luke are the perfect couple, married for 5 years they are still best friends, and still very much in love. The only problem is, they can’t have a baby. After 8 miscarriages, Lucy is finally pregnant with their third attempt at IVF and now it’s approaching the 4 month mark, they’re starting to feel safe, like it’s finally happening for them. Then on their 5 year anniversary, their lives fall apart in ways they could never have imagined.
With Luke now in a coma, secrets begin to unravel and rear their ugly heads, leaving Lucy with the hardest decision of her life.
This novel is bittersweet in that it deals with lots of sadness, and heartbreak for many different reasons but also tells the story of an ordinary family, torn apart by extraordinary circumstances. Told from the perspectives of Lucy, Patricia (Luke’s Mum) and Nell (Luke’s sister), Pieces of You takes the reader on an unforgettable journey of heartbreak, loss, grief and most importantly, Love.
