We Are All Made of Stars by Rowan Coleman
I received an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to Net Galley and to the publisher! I was very happy to receive this book.
Well, Rowan Coleman is one of my new automatic read authors. The first book I read by her was The Day We Met. That one brought me to tears.
This new one, We Are All Made of Stars was very good, too. I found myself really engaged with the book and characters and enjoyed it overall.
One part of the story is about Stella and Vincent, a couple who are dealing with the after effects of war. Stella works as a nurse in a hospice center and finds satisfaction in her job, but also by helping the patients write their last letters to friends and loved ones before they pass.
Another part of the story is about Hope, a patient at the hospice, and her best friend, Ben. Hope is not in the critical care part at the hospice, she's in the rehabilitation part after having a set back with her cystic fibrosis.
Finally, there is another story involving Hugh, who is living life as best as he can and thinks he's satisfied with his life, but is he? Has he ever really moved past the fact that his mother committed suicide?
Get this book and get the tissues. It's not all heart wrenching, and some parts are actually eye opening and moving. I really enjoyed this book and I thank the publisher and NetGalley again for letting me have the advance copy!
