Mrs R’s review:
Ten years ago, Paige Toon released her first book, Lucy In The Sky. Today I love her books as much as I did back then and this book is no exception. The One We Fell In Love With is about family, loss and secrets. The family is triplets, Phoebe, Eliza and Rose who I enjoyed getting to know over time. Their stories are told through alternating chapters and each woman’s voice was unique, letting me get to know them intimately. Not once did I question who’s narrative I was reading. Phoebe is the oldest sister, the one who everyone loves, with a passion for adrenaline sports such as rock climbing. The middle sister is Eliza, a spiky wanna-be musician living at home who isn’t ready to let go of her dreams. Baby sisters Rose’s life is falling apart, forcing her to move back home. The one thing these different sisters have in common is their next-door neighbour, Angus. Each sister gets to recall the first time they saw Angus at 17 years of age, not knowing the impact it will have on the rest of their lives. Going between that pivotal moment in time and the present, Paige brings together the threads of their lives to come to a shock revelation in the middle of the book that changed everything. This contemporary chic lit is deceptively simple to read and is real, full of warmth and love. A must read for fans of Giovanna Fletcher, Marian Keyes, and Lisa Jewell.
