My review for The Missing Pieces of Us by Eva Glyn, 4/5 stars.
This is a dramatic, second-chance love story with characters who are trying to get over loss, and grief, while giving themselves another chance at life. The author tackles difficult subjects such as mental health problems, homelessness, and alcoholism, but she does it with great sensitivity, leaving the reader with a better understanding of how tragedy and grief can lead someone to make the wrong choices.
Both of the protagonists, Izzie and Robin, have suffered greatly, and have many flaws. You’ll find yourself wanting to grab them both and talk some sense to them! But this is ultimately a story of courage and determination, a journey of forgiveness and new beginnings.
This is not an easy read, but it’s one that kept me turning the pages, wanting to find out what happens to Izzie and Robin, whether they reach out and ask for the help they so desperately need. It’s a love story, but it’s so much more, and it’s a read I recommend.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Harper Collins UK, and the author for the chance to read this book.
