We own the Sky- Luke Allnutt 5*
A story that will grip your heart and not let go. This may be an emotional read for some.
Love, loss, hope and the small things that count. Jack is a much longed for child.
Rob and Anna can’t believe their luck when this little bundle finally arrives in their
arms after having previous miscarriages. When he starts having balance issues his
parents take him for further tests. This is the story of their journey from before he
was born to the aftermath of tragedy. Rob has his own issues about what happened
and struggles to fight the demons he feels inside about how he dealt with things
and if things could have/should have been done differently and how this affected
both him and Anna. We all deal with things in our own way and this tells of his
struggle and emergence to the real world. A book to make you think about life
and your own mortality and that the little things really do mean a lot.
This is beautifully written with feeling and poignancy. A book to remember.
A wonderful title (which does get explained) and a wonderful read.
