I received an ARC if this book from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Give Me Books!
This book will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride - straight up. It is a story about losing the love if your life and learning to love again; dealing with the pain, the guilt, and every other emotion telling you you don't deserve to experience love again.
There were so many beautiful aspects to this book, but my favourite has to be the heart and key. To not spoil anything, I will not say more, but when you have read the book you will know.
In addition, Alice's selflessness and foresight is incredible. She is the most beautiful character, inside and out. She made me cry three times in the span of two chapters (thank God I was home alone). If this book doesn't touch you, you are made of stone. Seriously. I got chills and tears all wrapped up in one beautiful stack of (e-)pages.
Lastly, as you may know from previous reviews, I love songs/poems within books, and this one had some! They were lovely and emotional, and completely integral to the story, in my opinion.
Margaret McHeyzer has come to be one if my favourite/go-to authors.
