Alice Richards looked forward to watching the seeds of love she and her husband planted bloom and grow well into their old age. But her plans for the future shrivel up and die when she learns she has an inoperable brain tumour.
Determined that she won’t die in vain, she decides to become an organ donor. With a few precious months left, Alice begins documenting her fairytale romance—from their first meeting to the children they dreamed of having. She’ll pass on every detail to her heart’s next owner… along with careful instructions to send her husband reminders of her undying love. Before her time runs out, Alice must find the perfect candidate to guide her husband through unimaginable grief and hold the memory of their love in her heart.
I Give You My Heart is an emotional romantic fiction novel with an uplifting message. If you like strong-willed women, undying love stories, and honest portrayals of coping with a terminal illness, then you’ll love SarahJane Ford’s heart-warming epic.
An unmissable love story full of warmth, beauty and with a huge, beating heart. Perfect for fans of Cecilia Ahern’s ‘P.S. I Love You’ and Jojo Moyes’ ‘Me Before You’.
Beautiful! Heartwrenching! Hopeful!
Do not read this book without a huge box of Kleenex nearby! This book doesn’t evoke just settle tears running down the face… no, it evokes that ugly cry you know that makes your nose run! From the blurb you know this book will touch on some pretty emotional subjects, but the execution is simply beautiful… it is quite amazing this is a debut because it was just so well crafted from beginning to end…
Alice and Alex have a fairytale relationship, unfortunately they won’t get to live happily ever after… Alice is diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, and rather than wallowing in self-pity… she takes it upon herself to ensure that the love of her life will be OK without her…. Alice was such a remarkable character, strong-willed, selfless, caring, someone you would want to be friends with….Determined to make something positive out of her death she is determined to donate 22 organs, with her heart being the most precious out of these…. her plan for her heart is to give it to somebody who is very deserving someone who will help her husband remember and move on…. I have to admit I did think to myself I’m not sure if I could take on such responsibility…. Alice was going to leave some pretty big shoes to fill never mind her heart! And her instruction manual was a bit well… specific and bossy….
We also got a look into the beautiful love story of Alice and Alex… how they met to present day…. their story was quite epic… the kind of love we all dream of when we are little girls, that some of us are lucky enough to find…
This is such a beautiful book filled with so much heart and hope… absolutely recommend when you need a little dose of reality… seriously, if Alice could find a bit of a Brightside in the dark, then so can we all!
