Review - Half a World Away - Mike Gayle

Half a World AwayHalf a World Away by Mike Gayle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kerry Hayes is single mum, living on a tough south London estate. She provides for her son by cleaning houses she could never hope to afford. Taken into care as a child, Kerry cannot ever forget her past.

Noah Martineau is a successful barrister with a beautiful wife, daughter and home in fashionable Primrose Hill. Adopted as a child, Noah always looks forward, never back.

When Kerry reaches out to the sibling she lost on the day they were torn apart as children, she sets in motion a chain of events that will have life-changing consequences for them both.

Have your tissue box handy.

Seriously, have tissues to hand as this book will make you cry but it's also uplifting. I couldn't put it down.
