You Me Everything: A Novel
When Jessica decides to take her son, William, on holiday to a French chateau, she does so with more on her mind than just a relaxing getaway. The chateau in question has been restored and now operates as a hotel run by her former boyfriend Adam, who happens to be William’s father. Her mother, who suffers from the debilitating Huntington’s disease, has convinced Jessica that William needs to get to know his father, even if Jessica isn’t keen on the idea. Jessica has her reasons for not wanting to go first because she isn’t convinced Adam is up to being a parent and also because she has a secret she’s been keeping from both Adam and William.
Although You Me Everything is a sad story, as it deals with disease and broken relationships, it doesn’t disappoint. It’s full of interesting characters and scenery and comes complete with a satisfying end. The author does such a good job of developing the characters, by the time I finished reading, I felt as if I’d been in the French countryside with them. But, before you get to the end, you might find, like me, that you need a tissue or two.
