Book Review and Giveaway: A Hundred Pieces of Me by Lucy Dillon

September 15, 2014

in Books


Reeling from her recent divorce, Gina Bellamy suddenly finds herself figuring out how to live on her own. Determined to make a fresh start—with her beloved rescue greyhound by her side—Gina knows drastic measures are in order.

First up: throwing away all her possessions except for the one hundred things that mean the most to her. But what items are worth saving? Letters from the only man she’s ever loved? A keepsake of the father she never knew? Or a blue glass vase that perfectly captures the light?

As she lets go of the past, Gina begins to come to terms with what has happened in her life and discovers that seizing the day is sometimes the only thing to do. And when one decides to do just that…magic happens.

Most of the time, you can’t really have a fresh start until you have taken an extended trip to the past. And that’s exactly what Gina does. While her trials might not be the same as yours, the journey will look familiar to anyone who has tried to start over.

What I love about this novel is that is sits within Gina’s heart in a truly real way. Gina is more like a friend than a character in a book. As she sorts through the objects from her life, she makes you think about what is truly important in yours. And, she gives you hope that somehow, someway, it will work all be ok.
