A Few Reviews
I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
Dealing with bereavement, Jeff reminisces how he and Lynn met as he writes his autobiography, and Pestell has captured the sense of romance perfectly. This only emphasises the tragedy of events in book 1. Jeff was a handsome songwriter from a tough background, who managed to book himself an unlikely date with tennis player / pop star, Lynn.
The skeletons in Jeff's closet gave him many doubts about the unfolding relationship, but Lynn's trust gradually helped him to heal the scars of the past.
Picking up smoothly where the second book in this series left us, we continue to learn of Jeff and Lynn’s past together and how they struggled to overcome countless barriers and be together as intended.
This was a story of true soul mates colliding and recognizing their destiny together, even if it wasn’t evident to others at the time.
The story is told from Jeff’s perspective. He is writing the story of his life with his late wife and the reader sees the past as well as the present in this book.
As with the previous two books in this series, the story was well written and held my interest throughout.
For those who are unfamiliar with this series, the first thing I must say is you need to start with book one.
In book four, widow Jeff continues with his autobiography and shares more of his life with his beloved Lynn. Having read the first three books, I feel I know these (fictional) people on a personal level, having shared so much of their experiences. A Life Singular is a romance story told with such care and attention to detail that I struggle to believe the author is not recapping real events.
The exploration of love, of morality, of adversity of many kinds is wonderfully woven into the subtext in a thought-provoking but non-pedantic way. Subjects such as mental illness are carefully and authentically touched upon. The birth of children is beautifully handled.
