The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver

Don’t let the format of this book scare you. It’s very easy to follow as the writer floats back and forth between past and present; the what was, the what is, and the what might have been.

Yes, this is ultimately a romance novel so all of our readers who enjoy a good love story will find a place here. But The Two Lives of Lydia Bird also tackles grief and how hard it can be to be caught in its grip. There’s a bit of magical realism: just a sprinkle for those who enjoy that sort of thing, and to give others a little taste.

I loved this book by Josie Silver. It’s beautiful and sweet and heart wrenching and funny. All the feels with this one.
