Fall in love with this heartwarming and heartbreaking novel perfect “for fans of Me Before You” (Next Magazine).
When Ava Green turns twenty-eight, she discovers this will be her last birthday. The cancer she thought she’d beaten three years ago is back, only now it’s terminal and she’s not going to waste any of the time she has left. All she truly wants is the one thing she’s been dreaming of since she was a little girl: a wedding. There’s only one problem. She doesn’t have a groom.
Ava’s friends and family rally around her to help throw the wedding of her dreams — without the husband-to-be. As word spreads on social media, the bridal planning goes viral, attracting the attention of a prominent women’s magazine. And when a photographer volunteers to help document the whole event, it becomes heartbreakingly clear that it’s never too late to discover the love of your life.
Poignant, pensive, and profoundly moving!
Photos of You is a beautifully written, emotional novel that takes you into the life of the young, twenty-eight-year-old Ava Green as she spends her last months of life reaping as much joy and pleasure out of each day, savouring all the little things, enjoying time with those she loves, doing the one thing in life that she’s always wanted, and falling in love for the first time.
The prose is eloquent and insightful. The characters, including all the supporting characters, are strong, compassionate, and endearing. And the plot is an absorbing, heart-wrenching tale of life, love, family, friendship, kindness, honesty, acceptance, generosity, romance, humour, introspection, and loss.
Overall, Photos of You is a moving, reflective, bittersweet tearjerker by Robinson that does a remarkable job of reminding us of what’s truly important in life and highlighting the sheer power of love.
