"A poignant love story . . . Bittersweet and charming, perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes. " --Shelf Awareness Grace sees her boyfriend Henry everywhere. In the supermarket, on the street, at the graveyard. Only Henry is dead. He died two months earlier, leaving a huge hole in Grace's life and in her heart. But then Henry turns up to fix the boiler one evening, and Grace can't decide if she's hallucinating or has suddenly developed psychic powers. Grace isn't going mad--the man in front of her is not Henry at all, but someone else who looks uncannily like him. The hole in Grace's heart grows ever larger. Grace becomes captivated by this stranger, Andy--to her, he is Henry, and yet he is not. Reminded of everything she once had, can Grace recreate that lost love with Andy, resurrecting Henry in the process, or does loving Andy mean letting go of Henry?

"Alana Kerr Collins affectionately narrates this tragic love story with a beautifully calm tone and Irish accent. Both belie the racing thoughts of Grace, who loses Henry, the love of her life, when he's killed in a bike accident. Grace is shattered until Henry's long-lost twin, Andy, portrayed by Euan Morton, shows up. This dramatic twist is given gravity, thanks to the talented narration and the story's subtle nod to a secondary character's love of soap operas. Collins shows range with her shrill portrayal of Henry's mother, which contrasts with the quiet pauses of Grace's own protective parents. Andy is Australian, and Morton's accent is good, but overall his voice is devoid of emotion, which contradicts his character's humble and generous nature. Nonetheless, this is a great story enhanced by Collins's outstanding narration. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
