    This wonderful, unique story is sad, funny, sweet.

    Oh what a touching story. The way it begins is that Joy is writing to her younger sister Lily. The book consists of thirty-three letters from Joy to Lily. As each letter is composed, Joy relates her life's experiences to Lily. Joy has left her home in the UK and has moved to Denmark to take on a new job. She has completely uprooted her life, and in so doing, hopes to find happiness again and might even see if she can find a someone to share her life with. As we read the letters, it is sad to see some of the experiences that Joy has lived through. It is also sad because she misses Lily, and her mother, so very much. But, Joy needed this break. She needed this change. Will she find something different in her life? Will she find the way to heal her broken heart? I loved this story so very much. As each chapter was an individual letter, it was very engaging, often quite sad, albeit some humorous moments that struck a fine balance, and eventually became quite inspiring. I rooted for Joy the entire way through. There were times when her thoughts and decisions were a bit daunting. This was especially the case when she traveled back to the UK and felt there was something she needed to share with her mother. I was so moved by that entire exchange. Drew Davies delivered a wonderful book to his readers. I love this style of book and cannot remember reading anything written in this format. I look forward to reading much more by this talented author. Many thanks to #booksontour, Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to exchange for my honest opinion.

    What’s in a name?

    Joy is an ironically named character who, going against her usual nature, has uprooted from London to live & work in Copenhagen. She recounts the transition in a series of letters to her sister Lily. The blurb of this really drew me in however I must confess I approached this book with a certain preconception and I’m not sure if that affected my perspective when reading it or to put it another way I’m not sure if the author considered what the readers perspective would be. Apologies if that’s confusing but I’m trying to avoid spoilers just in case. As I first mentioned Joy is a contradiction and as such I didn’t wholly like her however her letters were a great insight into her ups, downs and general emotions and updates on her life with flashes of humour thrown in. The tone of the book alters as Joy gradually adapts to her new life but will she finally get to live up to her name?

    Both Funny and Moving

    There is a genuinely emotionall touching aspevt to this book, interspersed with humour and openness. I enjoyed all aspects of the book and found the characters and situations real and absorbing. Read this book in one long sitting, both laughing and teary-eyed.

    Not my cup of tea!

    Not my read at all!! No real plot and not overly well written as far as I am concerned.

    I really tried..

    I tried so hard to get through this book, but around 24% I decided to put it down. I usually enjoy novels written in letters or emails, but there was something about the characters that I just could not relate to or want to relate to. It was all one sided (maybe that changed later on?) and it couldn't hold my attention. Will definitely try more by the author though!
