Half A World Away | Mike Gayle
Strangers living worlds apart.
Strangers with nothing in common.
But it wasn’t always that way…
Kerry Hayes is single mum, living on a tough south London estate. She provides for her son by cleaning houses she could never hope to afford. Taken into care as a child, Kerry cannot ever forget her past.
Noah Martineau is a successful barrister with a beautiful wife, daughter and home in fashionable Primrose Hill. Adopted as a child, Noah always looks forward, never back.
When Kerry reaches out to the sibling she lost on the day they were torn apart as children, she sets in motion a chain of events that will have life-changing consequences for them both.
I haven’t enjoyed a book like this since I read Mike Gayle’s “The Man I think I Know” novel last year. I downloaded and read this one in just four nights!
It follows the brother (Noah) and sister (Kerry) from their own perspectives, so I was instantly immersed in to their worlds and was rooting for them as individuals and for their relationships. Like all good novels, it has a bittersweet happy ending – the one you’re expecting, but not wanting to happen.
I gave it a solid 5 stars….and along with that recommendation, I also highly recommend a box of tissues!
