WINNER OF THE ROMANTIC NOVELISTS' ASSOCIATION CONTEMPORARY ROMANTIC NOVEL AWARD, 2015.
As heart wrenching and life-affirming as One Day or Me Before You, A HUNDRED PIECES OF ME is a story about what it means to finally live life to the full. Letters from the only man she's ever truly loved. A keepsake of the father she never really knew. A blue glass vase that catches the light on a grey day.
Gina Bellamy is starting again, after a few years she'd rather forget.
But the belongings she's treasured for so long don't seem to fit who she is now.
So Gina makes a resolution. She'll keep just a hundred special items - the rest can go.
But that means coming to terms with her past and learning to embrace the future, whatever it might bring ...'Bittersweet, lovely and ultimately redemptive; the kind of book that makes you want to live your own life better.' Jojo Moyes 'Such a brilliant book.
So satisfying and clever and deeply moving. I'll be passing it on to all my friends.' Sophie Kinsella 'This vibrant and uplifting novel has not only entertained me hugely, but made me change the way I look at life.' Katie Fforde

Not so good as her previous stuff, too much psycho analyzing, but still enjoyable.
Review by Schlyne
It's contemporary fiction, not the sort of thing I usually read. Very well done. It's a great book about life and relationships. Probably the kind of thing you'd expect to see make it on one of Oprah's lists back in the day or in book clubs. In fact, the back of the book has one of those annoying little "what does blah blah 'main character do here' book club/literature class question discussion list pages. <br/><br/>
