The Last Act of Love

The Last Act of Love kept cropping up every now and again on bookstore shelves recommendations, in blogger newsletters and Instagram feeds, and last week I hit buy and Friday it was delivered. Saturday afternoon, I sauntered upstairs to start reading, and by the time The Last Night of the Proms had finished, I had finished the book, with tears streaming down my eyes. I can relate to Cathy's writing, feelings and life on so many levels, and then not relate on other levels. Some experiences Cathy went through, brought back floods of my own memories and thoughts. It's opened my eyes to a lot that happens in the world and the way different situations are percieved. It makes me wonder what other people think about grief, and how others cope in hard situations. It is a book, I feel everyone should read no matter how old, young, battered or bruised from hard situations. 

The diary style, linked with newspaper reports and statements made me feel like I was a fly on the wall watching everything unfold. I felt so much emotion reading this story, and there is a reason I couldn't put it down! All I can say is, this book is a must read.
