#bookreview The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver published by Penguin Books


Two love stories. One Impossible Choice.

Lydia and Freddie. Freddie and Lydia. They’ve been together for almost a decade, and Lydia thinks their love is indestructible.

But she’s wrong. Because on her 27th birthday, Freddie dies in a tragic accident.

So now it’s just Lydia, and all she wants to do is hide indoors and sob ’til her eyes fall out. But Lydia knows that Freddie would want her to live her life well. So, enlisting the help of his best friend and her sister Elle, she takes her first tentative steps into the world and starts to live – perhaps even to love – again.

Then something unbelievable happens, and Lydia gets another chance at her old life with Freddie. But what if there’s someone in her new life who wants her to stay?

My reading experience:

Firstly I would like to thank a Netgalley, the author and the publisher for my free ARC.

Lydia and Freddie are madly in love. Freddie dies.

Not the usual way for a story to begin but it clinches the readers interest.

The prose evoke the kaleidoscope of emotions woven throughout this story. The characters are relatable and the reader is drawn to Lydia’s long awaited hope in a new life.

And then Freddie returns.

A true page turner, I highly recommend this book
