The Idea of You
By Amanda Prowse
Lucy is approaching her 40th Birthday and after meeting Jonah at a christening and being blissfully happily married for a year now, they decide to start a family. Though it is not plain sailing for Lucy – she suffers several miscarriages, but at the same time she is harbouring a secret from her new husband, a secret we get snippets of in the form of flashbacks and little diary entries. What that is you will need read on to find out.
This was quite an emotional read of loss and Lucy’s story is heart wrenching. This is my first time reading anything by Amanda Prowse and it won’t be my last, I loved her style and the rawness of her characters in this story.
