Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Old friends bump into each other on a train and catch up on their 15 years separaton. When they arrived, Ruth is met by her son and Jenny sees the image of her recently dead husband in the boy. What follows is a tale of grief, love, obsession and the flowering of a complicated relationship. This is a well-rounded, well-written, sensitive tale, good, old-fashioned story telling at its best.

Similar this month: None but try Adriana Trigiani.
Comparison: Rosamunde Pilcher, Jojo Moyes, Marcia Willett.

If you like Sara MacDonald you might also like to read books by Jojo Moyes, Rosamunde Pilcher and Clemency Burton-Hill.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Come Away With Me by Sara MacDonald

Jenny and Ruth were best friends at school until Ruth abruptly moved away from their Cornish village and they lost all contact. Fourteen years later, a chance meeting on a train throws both their lives into turmoil. As they begin to fill in the gaps from the years that have passed, their old friendship sparks back into life.

One glimpse of Ruth's son Adam sends Jenny into a spiral of love, grief and obsession. Adam is the image of Jenny's husband, Tom, killed suddenly and tragically six months earlier. As Jenny discovers the truth about Adam, a powerful bond springs up between them that will have unforeseen consequences for both families.

‘Come Away with Me’ is a moving and provoking portrayal of how two women challenge each other's identity in what becomes an unbearable life swap.
