The Life You Left

by Carmel Harrington

The Life You Left Synopsis

The life you lived. The life you loved. The life you left... For fans of Jojo Moyes and Cecelia Ahern. It started out like any other day for Sarah Lawler; getting the kids ready for school, making the pack lunches and juggling baby Ella's feeds. There was no way of knowing that her husband, Paul, would leave for work that morning and simply not come home. Now the questions are piling up quicker than the unpaid bills and, unable to answer her children's questions about where their Daddy is, Sarah is getting desperate. But it turns out she isn't quite as alone as she thought she was. When her beloved childhood friend, Edward, comes back into her life, Sarah thinks she's finally been thrown a life line. There's just one problem with Edward: Sarah is the only person who can see him. Carmel Harrington has done it again! Brilliantly written... it surpasses all expectations. ChickLitClub
