Description

Leni’s death forces Alice to rebuild things in her own life and I loved the metaphor of the butterfly showing her struggle and the symbolism of the peacock feathers throughout the book. I’ve experienced grief in a number of ways and it can present in the most bizarre of situations and the strangest of times, but she’s definitely hit the mark with that. I loved that the supporting characters (Jackie, Ray, Jacob etc) really complemented the story, and I liked that characters such as Jackie and Ray were actually nice and weren’t made out to have that evil step parent vibe!

Through many experiences and an extensive journey they learn lots about themselves and several secrets are also revealed too. I know of her and I’ve seen her books and often been interest in them, but for reasons unknown to me, I have never actually read one. He can’t deal with the emotions her loss has stirred up and instead he spends his days selling knock off gear on the beaches of Thailand. The Best Days of Our Lives has a sad and difficult event that forms the core of the book from which all the other events and situations involving the characters evolve from.I could see instantly that Alice was filled with both rage and regret at what had happened and also guilt the reason for which becomes apparent fairly early on. I think because at this point things started to happen and the secrets and issues that each person had been hiding started to come to the fore.

Alice tries to piece together her sister’s last weeks, while Will, the youngest sibling, hops on a plane right after the funeral, not ready to deal with their loss. The different family dynamics in the book are truly relatable and I was left rooting for them all to resolve their issues together. The characters in the book were beautifully written, I loved getting to know their stories and how they all pulled together was heart warming. The patchwork family was interesting and I enjoyed following on their journey to accepting not only the fact that one of them is dead, but accepting themselves, just like they are.It reminds us to make the most of every second and spend time with our loved ones even doing the most mundane things.
