Synopsis: A heart-warming story of love, friendship and forgiveness - and the crazy twists of fate that shape our lives…
Absolutely loved it!
Australian women Hannah & India meet by chance in London and forge a friendship marking the beginning of a insightful, sensitive, heartwarming journey of serendipity.
A story of contrasts, much like Hannah and India ... Hannah a deep well of pain & self-loathing, fragile, and withdrawn, India intuitive, outgoing, bubbly and confident. As first Hannah then India's secrets are slowly revealed this highly emotive novel addresses deeper issues with touching insight and honesty and you can't help but feel intimately involved.
I adored India's quirky method of sending letters to the man she can't get out of her head - entrusting them to travellers to deliver to “Simon, The Aella.”
It's more fun like this. That way, if he ever gets one of my letters, then it's fate, right? Otherwise, it's not meant to be.
Love and forgiveness, friendship and family, Paper Chains is a beautiful read holding a special place in my heart.
With just one book Nicola Moriarty has got herself a fan and I have a keeper on my bookshelf. I'll be chasing up her debut novel, Free-Falling and waiting with bated breath for whatever she writes next.
Recommend: YES, YES, YES, a fabulous 5 star favourite ... hunt this one down!!
