About the Book:
Three women, three different stages of life, united by one thing: the chance to start again. When Elizabeth's husband dies, leaving her with crippling debt, she must turn to her friend, Jo for help, who calls in her daughter, Lucy to run the village surgery. Leaving her city life, and past demons, behind, Lucy is determined to make the most of her fresh start. As life slowly begins to resemble something normal for the three women, Jo's world is turned upside down when she receives some shocking news. In search of some solace, Jo and Elizabeth find themselves enjoying midnight dips in the freezing Irish sea. Here they can laugh, cry and wash away all their fears. As well as conjure a fundraising plan for the local hospice; to take a dip in the nip.
What a lovely surprise to read a very engaging book, which kept me wanting to know what happens next, without making it too obvious either. The great way that the chapters were titled from each person's point of view was very enlightening and the points of view were from very different perspectives...male and female, young and older.
I loved the characters so much. The story was so intriguing and had lots of humour whilst keeping you wondering the outcomes of the various character journeys. Set in a place I would love to visit...the details sounded so beautiful.
A wonderful read from beginning to end that I couldn't put down. Ms Hogan has a way of creating loveable, incredible characters and make you want to really invest in their story. A fabulous tale with some surprising twists that keep you flicking the pages.
