About the Book:
Kerry Hayes is single mum, living on a tough south London estate. She provides for her son by cleaning houses she could never afford. Taken into care as a child, Kerry cannot forget her past. Noah Martineau is a successful barrister with a beautiful wife, daughter and home in fashionable Primrose Hill. Adopted as a young child, Noah never looks back. When Kerry contacts Noah, the sibling she lost on the day they were torn apart as children, she sets in motion a chain of events that will change both of their lives forever. By turns funny and moving, Half a World Away is a story that will stay with you long after you read its final page.

Oh my gosh! This book! I loved it so much. I am new to Mike Gayle and I have no reasonable excuse why. The writing was easy to read, the plot kept me interested and turning the pages. This book was extraordinary. Talk about family dynamics...truly an original story-line. Believable characters I would like to know. Plots that twist but didn't confuse, very masterfully done and although this is an extremely emotional story it is heartwarming at the same time.

I will definitely be reading more from this very talented author. All the feels and all the stars.

Thank you NetGalley, Quercus, Hodder & Stoughton and Mike Gayle for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
