    fabulous, heartfelt and insightful

    Emma has returned to her family home at Foxglove Farm, Healdbury, to make amends and apologise for her past behaviour to her older sister Andrea and her mum. However, although she wasn’t expected to be welcomed back with open arms, she certainly wasn’t expecting the scene that she sees before her. Her mum has early onset Alzheimer’s and doesn’t recognise her. Her sister wants her to leave and tells her she isn’t welcome and doesn’t want anything to do either her ever again. Even her ex-boyfriend Bligh tells her to leave. With her family, friends and even the villagers wanting her to go, it takes all of her strength to stay and fight for forgiveness, but not everything is forgivable, could this be the case for Emma? The book is exceptionally poignant and covers some tough subjects such as alcoholism, homelessness, and forgiveness. All were handled with care and thoroughly researched, which shows in the superb, realistic writing. The story moves between the present day and months before Emma’s return home in which she was in Manchester and sleeping rough in the city centre. With Manchester being my hometown it was lovely (even in the circumstances) to see all the areas mentioned, giving me plenty of scope to perfectly visualise the scenes. It was also eye-opening to see just what those sleeping rough in the city go through. ‘Forgive Me Not’, is a new direction in writing for Samantha Tonge, away from her Rom Coms. She may have thought it was a risk heading in a different direction, but it definitely has paid off as this book was an absolute joy to read. I loved every minute of it and congratulate Samantha Tonge on writing a fabulous, heartfelt and insightful, book that will stay with me for a long time.
