Pieces of You by Ella Harper
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

There is a deep underlying sadness to this sensitive tale despite its uplifting message. Lucy and Luke are very much in love. They have problems conceiving a baby and opt for IVF. He is a paramedic and is involved in a crash leaving him in a coma. Then Lucy discovers a text and life gets a bit wobbly. Apparently the author has experienced the heart-breaking issues related here which is obviously why it all sounds so desperately true.

If you like Ella Harper you might also like to read books by Liane Moriarty, Jane Green and Jojo Moyes.

Synopsis

Pieces of You by Ella Harper

As compelling and powerful as Jojo Moyes and Liane Moriarty, PIECES OF YOU is a heart-rending, haunting and ultimately life-affirming novel about a love tested to its limits. The perfect marriage. A devastating secret. An impossible choice. Lucy was always sure of one thing - her future with husband and soulmate Luke. But after eight long, heartbreaking years trying to have a baby, that future is starting to crumble before her eyes. When a terrible accident puts Luke into a coma, Lucy is forced to reassess everything she thought she wanted. Then Stella arrives. A woman Lucy's never met, but with a secret that will change her world forever...

About the Author

Ella Harper spent eight years climbing to the top of the banking industry before idly mapping out the beginnings of a novel on an old laptop. She soon realised her characters were more real to her than dividends and corporate actions ever could be, and left her job to become a writer. Eight years later, and Ella has published four hugely popular novels under the name Sasha Wagstaff. PIECES OF YOU is her first novel as Ella, inspired by a personal loss and also fertility issues suffered by friends. For more information about Ella, find her on Twitter @EllaHarperBooks.
