Goodnight, Beautiful by Dorothy Koomson
Yet the unthinkable has happened — Leo was in an accident and been in a coma for weeks. Will Leo wake up?
Will Mal ever see his son? Will Stephanie and Mal resolve their problems? This book is so touching. I loved the characters and the storyline is gripping and realistic.
Koomson is an amazing writer boodnight her books always move me. We see a full picture of what happened and the story beaugiful told by different people. In this book Koomson explores what jealously can do relationships, what effect surrogacy can have on the person carrying the baby and those around them, and how having a child in a coma can effect your whole world.
This book seemed thoroughly researched and was very well written. I was gripped, I was almost in tears in many parts and as I reflect on the book I remember a beautiful book by a great author.
My favourite character was Leo.
He was so cute! I was willing him to wake up all through the book.
Nova was brave, strong, scared and a lovely character. Her relationship with Mal was gorgeous — friends forever. It was horrible reading the effect one jealous person could have on a friendship — although I found myself feeling sorry for Stephanie as she battled the jealousy.
That said, she was manipulative and lied — so sad to see what insecurities can do to a person. I wanted Mal to man up and see Leo regardless of Stephanie. Nova was his friend and Leo his son — he needed to be bold.
I think all the characters were well thought out and well written and made the story come alive. I say this every time I write about Koomson: She writes about issues facing people these days and attacks them viciously. I am so happy I read this book, dorohy can easily give it 4 out of 5.
