ABOUT THIS BOOK
It’s takes one minute to change everything…
Vivienne Shager has it all. A highflying job. A beautiful apartment. Friends whose lives are as perfect as her own. But on the afternoon of her 27th birthday, Vivi has a heart attack.
Now Vivi’s life shrinks back to how it begun, as she moves back to the small seaside town she grew up in. With her time running out, there is one thing she wants to know the truth about.
Some secrets are best left in the past…
Thirty years earlier, Shelley’s family home, Deerwood farm, bursts full of love and happiness. But one family member has hidden a secret for all these years. Until Vivi comes home demanding answers, and it takes just a moment to unravel the lie at their heart of their lives…
ONE MINUTE LATER by Susan Lewis is an in-depth and emotional story of loss and heartbreak and I was engrossed from beginning to end.
It is a matter of seconds when Vivi's fulfilling life is altered irrevocably. One minute she is a highly successful professional with a stunning apartment in the city, lots of like-minded friends, and a lifestyle that she always wanted and the next she is passed out on a restaurant floor with a terrifying diagnosis that means she is no longer in control. Living back in her childhood town with her mum was never part of her plan but as Vivi starts to relearn so much about herself and her family, secrets from the past may come to the surface.
This is a dual timeline story and I have to admit for the first part of the novel as I read about Vivi's life and then that of Shelley's years earlier, I wasn't exactly sure how they were connected but don't worry all will come to light. The characters are engaging and I found myself quite emotional at times reading about their lives.
A thoughtful and thought-provoking story, ONE MINUTE LATER by Susan Lewis is a powerful story of secrets and heartache and is sure to be a hit for this talented author.
