The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver
March 1, 2020 (by Jessica Girotti)
You won't want to put this funny, yet heart-wrenching story down! Lydia Bird is thrilled to be marrying the love of her life, Freddie Hunter, in just a few short months when he dies in a car accident. The story line follows two paths, one where Lydia struggles to figure out who she is without Freddie and one where she is able to continue on her path as if nothing ever happened and Freddie Hunter is still alive and well.
I absolutely fell in love with Lydia and was cheering for her successes and crying through her struggles. This book reminded me of "Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine" with the loveable, yet broken main character and "What Alice Forgot" where the main character is struggling between two "realities".
Thank you to Ballantine Books and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
