Josie, in her mid-forties, is diagnosed with breast cancer. Married to Jeff for twenty-two years she still loves him desperately despite a slight hiccup in their relationship some five years ago. In the course of her treatment she strikes up an unlikely friendship with a volunteer from a middle-class family. Josie is very working class from a sink housing estate near Bristol. Sadly Josie’s treatment is not successful and it is obvious the inevitable will occur. How she lives her last few months and manages her family and life is wonderfully handled. This really is an excellent book covering the horrors, emotions and the hospital treatment in a sensitive read. Moving and heart-warming, it treats the utterly sad situation beautifully. One of Susan Lewis’ best.

If you like Susan Lewis you might also like to read books by Sandra Brown, Santa Montefiore and Nora Roberts.

Synopsis

Never Say Goodbye by Susan Lewis

This is a compelling and deeply moving novel of friendship, family and the power of love, from the Sunday Times top ten bestseller. How would you cope with the threat of losing someone you love? Josie Clark is a loving wife and mother. She and her husband Jeff don't have much and it's often difficult to make ends meet. But Josie will do anything to protect her family and keep them safe. Bel Monkton is a successful property developer, living in a beautiful house by the sea. She seems to have everything going for her, but she's lonely. And she's let the shadows from her past cloud her future. Josie's life couldn't be more different to Bel's. But three years ago, tragedy tore Bel's life in two. Now it's happening to Josie. And faced with uncertainty and heartbreak, they come to treasure their growing friendship.
