    A beautiful reminder that each of us have our struggles but also enormous potential. That life is for living each day at a time, and no matter what we regret, each of us has our place to be special.

    My first book by Matt Haig. I started to read after coffee on a Saturday, and found I couldn’t stop. I wanted to know all of Nora’s lives and I hoped she’d find one. I enjoyed reading it and would definitely recommend it especially to anyone who has ever felt a regret for something in their life, however small.
  • Didn’t want it to end!

    This book is a journey through emotions. It is beautiful written and takes you through the what ifs of a persons life to reveal what real does matter. I highly recommend this book.

    I read this from cover to cover over four days. Such a sensitively told story that resonated deep within me. A beautiful mix of everyday and otherworldliness. I’m in mourning that I finished it.
