Josie Silver follows the fabulous One Day in December with this in depth study of the heartbreaking grief and loss experienced by Lydia Bird when on her 28th birthday, her fiance, Freddie Hunter dies in a car accident, whilst his best friend, Jonah Jones, whilst injured, lives to walk free Lydia lived with Freddie in Shropshire, her whole life had revolved around him since they were fourteen years old at school and they were planning their wedding for the following year To say that Lydia s life falls apart is an understatement, the overwhelming grief is too much for her, and adjusting to life without Freddie is not a scenario she can accept Silver uses the device of sleeping pills that offer Lydia the surprising pathway through lucid dreaming to continue her life with Freddie This allows her to escape the harsh, unforgiving landscape of grief and avoid passing through that challenging process sentiently.However, it means that her waking hours are to be endured and survived whilst she lives her real life with the love of her life with Freddie in her sleeping hours This is, of course, problematic for all those who love Lydia, her mum, and her best friend and older sister, Elle It takes her some time to become aware that they are supporting her through the wreckage of her life, the guardians of her sanity Her feelings towards Jonah are complicated and she just can t face him, even though her friendship with him is even longer than that with Freddie Through the years they have been a close knit trio, even though Lydia had resented him at times It is Jonah that helps her by getting her to attend a grief workshop when she really did not want to It takes almost 3 months before a fragile Lydia can make herself go back to work, only to understand that Phil, Ryan, Julia and Dawn have been there for her in ways that had just not crossed her mind.It begins to dawn on Lydia that she has reasons to live in the real world and slowly acknowledge the hitherto impossible concept that perhaps there will be someone for her after Freddie It is oh so hard for her to let go of Freddie but having to live without him is beginning to change her, she can no longer be the same woman she used to be, she must inevitably evolve Josie Silver writes a compulsive tear jerker, of a young woman having to come to terms with her world falling apart, struggling through the process of grief until she is strong enough to pick up the pieces of her life and forge a new path for herself It is Silver s wonderful writing, with bags of humour and her brilliant characters that makes this such a great read and I have no doubt that so many readers will absolutely love this Many thanks to Penguin UK for an ARC.
