Books Read: Annie Lyons - Dear Lizzie

Two sisters. Twelve letters. One year that changes everything.

Lizzie and Bea Harris were always very close. They were sisters and nothing could tear them apart. Until Bea dies at the age of thirty-five, leaving her sister twelve letters and a mission that will change Lizzie’s life forever.

Alone for the first time Lizzie is left trying to pull together the pieces of a life she has for so long ignored. With Bea’s list of last requests, Lizzie has a chance to finally find a place for herself in the world - out from under the shadow of her sister.

Amazon links: Kindle  

Lizzie Harris has been estranged from her family since she was a teen, keeping in contact with her sister Bea only, so she's stunned to receive a package from Bea after her death containing 12 letters. Through each letter we get a glimpse into Lizzie's unhappy past and how she deals with the missions that Bea sets her as way to move on with her life and mend bridges.

I loved the whole concept of the letters and their purpose as a way for Lizzie to heal, grieve and even love again.  It was great seeing how she blossomed, once I started reading I literally could not put it down meaning that virtually nothing else got done as I just had to keep on reading to find out how it would all turn out in the end.  

Such an uplifting tale full of delightful characters, it is definitely my favourite Annie Lyons novel to date so I cannot wait to hear what she has in store for us.  

I received a copy of this book to review from the publisher via NetGalley.
