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.
Pieces of You by Ella Harper was the emotional story of how an entire family deals with a tragedy and a scandal. Lucy has the ideal relationship with her husband Luke, except their inability to have children. There have been close calls, but each attempt has ended in heartbreak. To add to the suffering, Luke is severely injured, putting him in a coma. During this time, a scandalous secret is revealed, throwing Lucy’s already teetering life in to a tailspin.
I wanted so badly for the secret not to be true. I was rooting for Stella to be a conniving liar, so I was disappointed when the truth was revealed. Pieces of You had a good plot and pulled me in, leaving me wanting to know what was going to happen next. The characters were believable and their feelings were nearly palpable.
Would I recommend this book? I’m not sure. While I thought the plot was strong, I was not a fan of all the different POVs. I understand their importance, being able to see the toll the accident is having on everyone, but it was too much for me. I think the story would have been just as engaging without seeing what Luke’s family was going through. As always though, to each his/her own. Never base your judgement on what I say, for I am just a normal gal.
