Gina Bellamy is starting again, after a difficult few years she’d rather forget. But the belongings she’s treasured for so long just 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…
Thank you to the team at Hodder & Stoughton for kindly sending me a review copy. I’ve heard a lot of book bloggers talking about this book so naturally, I wanted to read it for myself to see what they were all discussing…
Readers follow Gina on her 2014 journey where she finds herself to be alone yet surrounded by love at the same time. Lucy’s involvement of flashbacks really allows the readers to get to know Gina a lot better and see what she has faced in the past.
Several mentions of Gina’s old boyfriend, Kit, keep cropping up and I instantly wondered whether they would reunite at the end of the narrative. Did they? Read it and you’ll see.
This was an emotional journey in which Gina embarks on but once the novel finishes, she’s a better person with a lot less clutter in her flat.
Lucy’s book is out TOMORROW!
