“I absolutely adored You, Me, Everything by Catherine Issac. What a story and an emotional rollercoaster it is…
Based mostly in France is the story of Jess and her son William. Jess’s mother is unwell and Jess promises her that she will go to France to see Williams Dad, Adam – finally to sort out what happened 10 years ago and to perhaps build a relationship between her son and the man she once loved.
The characters are perfect, warming and kind, you can’t help but fall in love with them all. Especially Jess. She’s brave and smart and everything you love in a main character.
This story will leave you wondering and questioning your own life and values and how precious time really is.
Even though death is a natural process it’s always hard when we lose someone close to us, however this book really makes you think hard about your own choices and what if they were taken away from you suddenly and at such a young age, it questions everything your thinking and doing and I know when I finished this book I felt elated and sad all in one. I even sneaked into my sons room, watched him whilst he slept, smelt his hair then hugged him. I did the same to my husband. I needed to and I love that about this book. I love that Catherine wrote a book which leaves you feeling this way. I’m not going to lie – it’s a tear jerker and you will need a handful of tissues ready. But honestly it’s a beautifully written novel with a warm and honest storyline that will leave you feeling bittersweet and contented.
Well done Catherine, superb writing and definitely worthy of high praise and outstanding reviews.”
