EXCERPT: But you know, what you eat on your wedding day isn’t really that important. In fact, whether you get married or not isn’t really important. The thing that matters most is that you spend your time with someone who loves you very much and who you love right back, someone who is kind to you and who you, in return, want to be kind to.

ABOUT THIS BOOK: One Love, Two Stories.

Anna Cole grew up in care, and is determined to start a family of her own. Theo Montgomery had a loveless childhood, and wants only to find his soulmate.

Then, one day, Theo meets Anna, and Anna meets Theo. Two damaged souls from different worlds. Is their love for each other enough to let go of the pain of their pasts? Or will Anna and Theo break each others’ hearts?

There are two sides to every love story. This is Anna’s.

MY THOUGHTS: Those of you who have been following my reviews for some time know that I am no great romance reader. But every now and then I come across something that piques my interest. And Anna certainly did that.

WARNING: Anna is a book that needs to be read with a box of tissues on hand to mop up as we follow Anna’s journey.

Anna grows up the adored daughter of a single mum, sister to a drug addict. Her six year old self writes letters to the children she wants to have one day, Fifi and Fox. This is a habit she continues throughout her life. That and playing the alphabet game, a game her mother taught her to play when she was worried or anxious. These two things sustain her through her troubled life. But just when she thinks she has got it all right, everything goes wrong.

I have read and enjoyed Amanda Prowse’s books in the past. She has a talent for bringing her characters to life, of making you feel as though you are right there, experiencing the myriad emotions, living through the disasters and triumphs. She wreaks havoc with the reader’s emotions. Prowse had me laughing, crying, and everything in between.

Anna is a triumph. I can’t wait to read Theo. 4.5 stars

I love good quality chocolate. I love the ocean and love to be in, on or beside it. I read any and every where. I am a proud mum and Nana. I like wine, gin, Southern Comfort, a cold Heineken on a hot day. I am very versatile like that. I cross stitch, do jigsaws, garden, and work on a farm. I am an occasional scribbled.
