A love story like no other, this is the debut novel from Carrie Hope Fletcher, author of the Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller All I Know Now.
Evie Snow is eighty-two when she quietly passes away in her sleep, surrounded by her children and grandchildren. It's the way most people wish to leave the world but when Evie reaches the door of her own private heaven, she finds that she's become her twenty-seven-year-old self and the door won't open.
Evie's soul must be light enough to pass through so she needs to get rid of whatever is making her soul heavy. For Evie, this means unburdening herself of the three secrets that have weighed her down for over fifty years, so she must find a way to reveal them before it's too late. As Evie begins the journey of a lifetime, she learns more about life and love than she ever thought possible, and somehow , some way, she may also find her way back to her long lost love . . .
On the Other Side will transport you to a world that is impossible to forget. Powerful, magical and utterly romantic, this is a love story like no other from everyone's favourite 'big sister', Carrie Hope Fletcher.
Unlike so many of you, I had never heard of this author before, so I read ON THE OTHER SIDE by Carrie Hope Fletcher without any expectations. When Evie Snow passes away in her old age, she finds herself at the doors of the afterlife transformed into her former twenty-seven-year-old self. Unable to enter, she must relieve her soul of her heaviest burdens from her lifetime, to be able to pass through, and so the journey begins for Evie as she finally faces the major secrets of her life. ON THE OTHER SIDE is a unique take on life after death and I really enjoyed the concept which allows you to escape reality for a while. And while I found it sweet and interesting overall, at certain points the story did seem a little disjointed and didn't flow as easily as I would have liked. Still well worth a read if you are looking for a little magical entertainment.
