WHEN WE SAY GOODBYE by Michelle Vernal

Can you love when all seems lost?



Can you love when all seems lost?

Ellie Perkins life was right on track until her boyfriend Sam suffers a near-fatal car accident, leaving him in a coma and all their future plans in limbo.

Desperately in need of something to fix, Ellie has to find a project and when her grandparents old house is put up for sale, she jumps at the chance. Because, like Ellie, the house is broken. And if she can fix the house, then surely, it’s just a matter of time before she and Sam are back on their path to happily-ever-after…

In life, when the worst happens how do you pick up the pieces?


This was my first Michelle Vernal read and I am glad to have been given the opportunity to read her work.

Michelle Vernal tells a sweet tale. There is a strong sensitivity in the way she writes and with her ability to describe scenes and people we can envisage all aspects of Ellie’s life throughout the book.

I generally prefer a faster paced novel however due to the subject matter I felt this book was perfectly balanced.
