Publisher's Summary

Perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes and Amanda Prowse. 

Can one act of love break a family apart? Alex believes that she can overcome anything. So when her partner, Sam, needs her help in the most unexpected of ways, she doesn't hesitate to offer it to him - even when it means making a huge sacrifice of her own. But what neither of them can foresee is that this one act of love will reverse their roles within the family...leaving Alex reeling and isolated from Sam and their two children. 

How far will you go to save someone you love? And as the threads which hold her life - and the family she adores - together start to unravel, can Alex figure out the ups and downs of her new reality before everything falls apart? 

The Rest of Me is a moving, emotional novel about a family navigating the aftermath of a shattering event. It will make you laugh and cry and remind you of the importance of family and love.

Uncreative and bland

Story line a bit bland - kind of like you’ve heard it all before. Nothing gripping, but inoffensive and and okay listen.

Couldn't get into this...

I really disliked this book. The story and characters just didn't grab me. The narration was really irritating. Persisted as it has good reviews but I just can't get into it.

Dull and depressing

Struggled to finish, not much to say to be honest, just dull really, sorry to be harsh.
