The Second Love of my life by Victoria Walters
In the Cornish town of Talting, everyone is famous for something.
Until recently Rose was known for many things: her infectious positivity; her unique artistic talent; and her devotion to childhood sweetheart Lucas.
But two years ago that changed in one unthinkable moment. Now, Rose is known for being the young woman who became a widow aged just twenty-four.
Though Rose knows that life must go on, the thought of carving out a new future for herself is one she can barely entertain. Until a newcomer, Robert, arrives in Talting for the summer...
Can Rose allow herself the chance to love again?
Get lost in Victoria Walters' immensely touching debut novel, and discover a world that will capture your imagination and heart.
I picked up this book on a whim and I've very glad that I did I definitely think Victoria Walters could be a new auto buy author for me. Read in one sitting and very much enjoyed. Felt similar to a Lucy Dillon novel whose books I also really enjoyed.
For me this book was a real emotional rollercoaster. It made me smile and brought me close to tears on several ocassions. I won't go into too much detail as I wouldn't want to spoil any of the details for anyone but I will say that it really captured both the raw grief felt by the main character as well as the those feelings associated with falling in love with someone new.
I very much enjoyed this book and will definitely be looking out for what the author writes next.
