I Do Not Sleep by Judy Finnigan

Dear Reader,


From bestselling author, broadcaster, journalist and Book Club champion Judy Finnigan comes an unputdownable and wonderfully moving story of the enduring power of a mother's love.
Do not stand at my grave and weep 

I am not there; I do not sleep.

Five years ago, Molly Gabriel lost her 20-year-old son, Joey, to a terrible sailing accident. His empty boat was found washed ashore on the rocks -- but his body was never found. Now, Molly has returned to the sands of Cornwall haunted by his death, unable to accept he is gone. Joey was an experienced sailor and died on a calm sea -- things just don't add up and Molly cannot let it go. Desperate for answers she turns to Joey's best friend, Ben, to go back to what really happened that day.


This was a beautiful and sensual novel about a mother grieving for her suposedly dead son. Five years ago Molly lost her son Joey in a tragic sailing accident. Now Molly has returned to Cornwall after her husband Adam and son Danny arrange a family holiday in the hope that it will bring about some closure for Molly.
We go on an emotional journey with Molly who relentlessly tries to piece together and  find answers to what really happened to Joey which brings about a surprising outcome for all concerned.
This is not a beach read by any means due to its content but it is so beautifully and sensitively written you can't help but be drawn in

Really enjoyed it


Kind regards,
