Two sisters. Twelve letters.
One year that changes everything.
Lizzie and Bea Harris were always very close. They were sisters and nothing could tear them apart. Until Bea dies at the age of thirty-five, leaving her sister twelve letters and a mission that will change Lizzie’s life forever. Alone for the first time Lizzie is left trying to pull together the pieces of a life she has for so long ignored. With Bea’s list of last requests, Lizzie has a chance to finally find a place for herself in the world - out from under the shadow of her sister.
This one is definitely all about the "feels". I dare you to read this and not experience the emotional rollercoaster that this wonderful read takes you on. I’m a true believer of signs and that everything happens for a reason so maybe this is why I took so deeply to this book.
Annie Lyons writes with such feelings and depth that you feel everything that Lizzie is going through. And although Lizzie experiences a range of emotions I loved how through these letters Bea helps Lizzie find herself. With Bea’s help Lizzie discovers who she is and what she truly wants in her life. Their bond as sisters and even more as friends truly gives this read its heart. You truly feel as if you know and love Bea as much as Lizzie does. I highly encourage everyone to pick this one up. If you love a book that gives you the “feels” look no further than this one.
