By My Side is written by Alice Peterson and published by Quercus.
One step can change everything…
Cass Brooks loves her job, her boyfriend Sean, her life. Until, leaving home one morning, distracted and hungover, she steps into the path of a truck.
When she wakes up, she can’t walk. And suddenly all her hopes and dreams, the plans she’d made with Sean, the future she thought she’d have, seem out of her reach.
But then fate intervenes again. Cass meets Ticket, a loyal golden Labrador who refuses to leave her side. And on a flight to Colorado, she sits next to Charlie, who believes he can show her a life full of possibilities, if only she’ll let him.
Cass wants her life back the way it was. Charlie knows this cannot be. Yet a future beckons all the same…
I liked the sound of this book when I read the back cover. If i am honest, I was a little concerned it would be very similar to JoJo Moyes Me Before You with it being a bout someone post traffic accident. However, other than being just as captivating to read, it is very different.
Brilliantly written with lovely emotion and light elements of humour, this book has it all. a great plot, some lovely characters and pets!
What i found out after reading the book, parts of this story are true. The charities and organisations included are indeed real, which makes it even more of a wonderful read. Just knowing theer are people out there to help, was a wonderful feeling.
A truly great read that I strongly recommend.
