The Blurb

‘An astounding debut, Pieces of Me is a beautiful book written with emotion and compassion and will stay with me for a long time. It’s characters and story tugged at my heart with every turning page.’ Nina Pottell, Books Editor Prima Magazine and Costa Book Awards Judge

Emma did not go to war looking for love, but Adam is unlike any other.

Under the secret shadow of trauma, Emma decides to leave Iraq and joins Adam to settle in Colorado. But isolation and fear find her, once again, when Adam is re-deployed. Torn between a deep fear for Adam’s safety and a desire to be back there herself, Emma copes by throwing herself into a new role mentoring an Iraqi refugee family.

But when Adam comes home, he brings the conflict back with him. Emma had considered the possibility that her husband might not come home from war. She had not considered that he might return a stranger.

What I Thought

A stunning book.  This is written so well and conveys the emotional impact of war on the people involved and all around them.

You cannot help but hope for and champion the main characters.  The author delicately handles the true complexities of the situation and I could not help but be moved.  I finished the book very quickly as it was hard to put down, and the book will stay with me for a long time.

A heartbreaking but truly amazing read, well done Natalie Hart.
