Review by VanessaCW
I had not realised that this story was about a terminal illness. I do not usually knowingly read books on this subject as I find them disturbing. However, this one is sensitively and humorously told. It's beautifully written with some great, well defined and believable characters. They each have their own story to tell and their own problems to deal with.I like Susan Lewis as an author and have read quite a few of her books over the years. I have always enjoyed them and Never Say Goodbye is no exception. Even though there is a serious thread at its heart and it is sad at times, it is by no means a miserable tale. There are some amusing moments and I liked that the story was left on a positive note.A moving and heartwarming, but at the same time heart wrenching, story which I would have no hesitation in recommending as a thoroughly enjoyable read.Many thanks to Netgalley and Random House publishers for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.
