A sad, sweet, thought-provoking tale about the love and bond between parents and children. ‘Time To Say Goodbye’ is a story about 6 year old Ella and her father Will, however the whole family have a part to play in the events that unfold. The first page is a bit of a jaw dropper, it doesn't just set the story in motion, it launches it. There is lovely simplicity to this tale, yet there is a core of steel which is bound in challenging emotions. S.D Robertson can at times be quite matter of fact, which balances the creativity of the story beautifully. It’s best not to question, to overthink, but to just slip away from what you know and enter a story full of emotion and possibilities. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Time to Say Goodbye by S. D. Robertson

A heart-rending story about the unique bond between a father and his daughter, for fans of Jojo Moyes and Nicholas Sparks - for anyone who's ever wondered what it would be like to get one last chance to say goodbye. HOW DO YOU LEAVE THE PERSON YOU LOVE THE MOST? Will Curtis's six-year-old daughter, Ella, knows her father will never leave her. After all, he promised her so when her mother died. And he's going to do everything he can to keep his word. What Will doesn't know is that the promise he made to his little girl might be harder to keep than he imagined. When he's faced with an impossible decision, Will finds that the most obvious choice might not be the right one. But the future is full of unexpected surprises. And father and daughter are about to embark on an unforgettable journey together ...
