    Strength following loss

    I was given an advance copy to read in exchange for and honest review. This is a story about a woman who is killed and the many lives and pieces it takes to put things back together. Nathan is now a single father of 3 struggling to come to terms with the sudden death of his wife. Why was she volunteering with an organization he knew nothing about? Was she unhappy in their life together that she needed something else? Each of the girls have unique issues with the death of their mom. Did she know they loved her? Will she be proud of me? Who will read me my stories. Maria volunteered with Laura and Nathan seeks her out to try to learn more about what she was doing before her death. Maria see the pain and grief in Nathan, and she is drawn to help him. Grief is grief you can recognize it in another person who has experienced great loss. Will MARIA be able to help Nathan with his grief? Will the girls be able to find hope for tomorrow without their mother? This was a intense story that made you understand their pain.

    A very touching story.

    Nathan's wife Laura is dead and he is now alone to raise their three young daughters. Facing this challenge, and the fact that he doesn't know his daughters as well as he thinks he does, causes him to reach out. For starters, Nathan cannot believe the circumstances in which his wife died. When he meets a woman at Laura's funeral, she is the very person Nathan reaches out to. This woman, Maria, said that she was a friend of Laura's. Before long, she pretty much steps right in and things begin to make sense to Nathan and the girls. With Nathan's intense workload, Maria seems to be a godsend. However, things simply cannot be this easy, this smooth. Eventually Nathan begins to be concerned - not just about Maria being part of his current situation, but also Nathan begins to wonder if even knew his wife at all. As emotional as this story is, there is more than a bit of mystery and drama when it comes to Maria. She is holding a secret very close, and things slowly begin to reveal themselves. This story is delivered in a nice format. Not only do we have both Nathan's and Maria's points of view, but there is also then and now that goes back and forth. This touching story was literally impossible to put down. Not only was it very sensitive and heartbreaking, it made me think about my own life, my own family. This book, as in life, however, offers hope, and therefore was very compelling. This story, as well as the previous ones, always pull at my heartstrings. Every story I read by Kate Hewitt affects me the same way. I highly recommend this book and so look forward to reading much more by this fabulous author. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.

    Wonderful read

    No Time to Say Goodbye is a book that will break your heart but give you hope. It is a book of hope, faith and family and added in is the mystery who shot and randomly killed Laura on the subway leaving Nathan a widow with 3 young girls. Its a book that shows how life changes in an instant, how we all have different perspective of our relationships. Its about about healing and family. Maria is a strong part of the book who comes in to look after the girls as they try to get life back to the new normal. Maria has her own story to tell. Well worth the read as you cheer on Nathan as he tries his best to deal with his and his children's grief. Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for the opportunity to read No Time to Say Goodbye

    A beautiful read

    Having read many books by author Kate Hewitt, I had cried through each one of them, except for this book. I was so proud of Rachel for standing up for her daughter when the world and its renowned doctors gave up. I had tears and lump in the throat at times on reading this, but the author wrote this with a finality that I had to stay with this mother right to the end of the story. The whole story was so beautifully depicted that even in loss, there was acceptance and a quiet conviction everything had been done to the best of their efforts. A beautiful story of hope… And a mother’s love.

    His wife's murder forces a man to examine his life

    The shock murder of Laura, an Upper East Side mother of three, on the subway brings to light lots of questions. Why was she in that part of town, what was she doing? For her husband Nathan his wife's murder forces him to take a look at his marriage and his relationship with his children. Maria is a Bosniak (a Bosnian Muslim) who left Bosnia 20 years ago. She works as a hairdresser and volunteers at the same shelter as Laura. Deeply traumatised by her experiences during the siege of Sarajevo and her subsequent interment in a camp, Maria felt an odd affinity to this younger woman who wanted to give something back to society. In the process of speaking to Laura's friends and fellow volunteers at the centre Nathan meets Maria. Maria tells Nathan of conversations she had with Laura which paint a whole new picture of his wife. Can Nathan, Maria and the three children move on from Laura's murder and has the act changed them all? This was fascinating and poignant and uplifting and so many other things. Difficult to describe without giving away some key aspects of the plot but really well worth the read. I think I borrowed this on Amazon Prime.
