The Life You Left by Carmel Harrington ~ Book Review

Book Synopsis: 

Sarah, I’m not coming home tonight.
If you love me, you will give me the space I need…
Tell the children I love them.

It started out like any other day for Sarah Lawler; getting the kids ready for school, making the pack lunches and juggling baby Ella’s feeds.

There was no way of knowing that her husband, Paul, would leave for work that morning and simply not come home.

Now the questions are piling up quicker than the unpaid bills and, unable to answer her children’s questions about where their Daddy is, Sarah is getting desperate.

But it turns out she isn’t quite as alone as she thought she was. When her beloved childhood friend, Edward, comes back into her life, Sarah thinks she’s finally been thrown a life line.

There’s just one problem with Edward: no one else can see him.

Edward is an angel. And he has a message for Sarah that will change her life and the lives of others forever. For it is only in the most difficult of times that Sarah can discover how strong
she truly is.

Set in a small coastal village on the beautiful Irish coast, The Life You Left is a story of redemption and the strength of love.

To make life even more perfect, I have now fulfilled a lifetime ambition to be a writer as I am both a published author with HarperImpulse, a division of Harper Collins Publishers and a playwright.

I really enjoyed this novel right from the start. This is the first book I have read by Carmel Harrington but it wont be the last. The author develops each character so that you really feel like you know them. I love how the storyline came together, it was a busy one but never did the author make me feel like I was lost. I did really want to get mad at Paul for how he picked up and left but this book had a very different approach to the subject and in the end I was in tears other the whole thing. Sarah was a great character and I really wish there was more development between her and Edward.

Overall I love this book and enjoyed every minute of it. I give it a 4.5 stars out of 5!
