The Single Dad’s Handbook by Lynsey James


It’s been two years since cancer stole Evan Harper’s wife, Claire, from their lives. Although Evan’s doing everything he can to be Super Dad for his five year old, Violet, he can’t seem to get anything right. So he turns to the one person who gives the best advice – Claire herself.

Before she died she wrote him a book of letters to see him through the ups and downs of raising their daughter and her words soon help him see that there is life after loss – and maybe even a second shot at love – when you find the courage to start living again…

It’s time to start living again, Evan. Your new forever starts right here. Love always, Claire

I cried. A lot. Yeah, thanks for that Ms James. This was one of the saddest books I've ever read - but it was also incredibly uplifting. I think I related to every character on an emotional level, and felt their grief and pain.

Yet despite the sorrow, there is so much hope and love running through this story.

When you read it, don't forget the tissues - you'll need them!
