Pieces of You
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Lucy. I don’t even know how to start this letter.
Something happened. Something terrible . . .

Lucy was always sure of one thing – her future with husband and soulmate Luke. But after eight long, heartbreaking years trying to have a baby, that future is crumbling before her eyes.
When a terrible accident puts Luke into a coma, Lucy is forced to reassess everything she thought she wanted.

Then a woman arrives with a shocking secret that will force Lucy to make the hardest decision of her life.

As compelling and powerful as Jojo Moyes and Liane Moriarty, PIECES OF YOU is a heart-rending, haunting and ultimately life-affirming novel about a love tested to its limits.

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Lucy and Luke have been trying for a baby for 8 years, and every time they conceive they end up saddened when Lucy miscarries. This time Lucy has made it to 16 weeks though, and they’re hoping that things are finally going their way, when suddenly everything goes wrong in the worst possible way.
Can Lucy get over the coming tragedies in her life? And will things ever be the same again?


This was a difficult story about grief, pregnancy, miscarriage, and infidelity.

I liked Lucy and the whole way through this book I felt so sorry for her. She had lost so many babies, and wanted a baby so badly, and every time her dreams were snatched from her. Then to have even more bad luck and grief piled on to her was unbelievably sad.

The storyline in this was pretty sad, Lucy just had bad luck and then more bad luck, and then had the very foundations of her marriage rocked. The poor girl just could not catch a break, and the further into the story the worse things got for her. I have to say that blurb has awful spoilers for this book though, really quite bad!

The ending to this was okay, but it certainly wasn’t a classic ‘happily ever after’ but more of a realistic ending. I have to say that poor Lucy really did go through a lot in the book though, and she really did handle things well, the poor girl had her whole world cave in on her, and somehow came out of things still able to see the good things that came from the bad.
Overall; a difficult story about grief, pregnancy, miscarriage, and infidelity,
7 out of 10
