Blurb: Lucy. I don’t even know how to start this letter. 
Something happened. Something terrible . . .

Lucy was always sure of one thing – her future with husband and soulmate Luke. But after eight long, heartbreaking years trying to have a baby, that future is crumbling before her eyes.

When a terrible accident puts Luke into a coma, Lucy is forced to reassess everything she thought she wanted. Then a woman arrives with a shocking secret that will force Lucy to make the hardest decision of her life. 

As compelling and powerful as Jojo Moyes and Liane Moriarty, PIECES OF YOU is a heart-rending, haunting and ultimately life-affirming novel about a love tested to its limits.

*First of all I would like to thank the publishers, Avon (HarperCollins) for sending me a copy of the book via Net Galley.*

Review: A couple of warnings before you start reading this book. First, don't read the blurb, I think it gives away a bit too much of the story so trust me, just grab the book and read it, it won't leave you indifferent, that is for sure. Second, have tissues in hand, this is one of those heart-breaking reads that will have you sobbing in a not very nice way. And third, don't read it in public, because of all the sobbing.

I am not going to tell you what the story is about, you will find out by yourself by let me say that it handles some difficult issues like fertility problems or depression. But it also talks about trust, failure and love. It takes a perfect couple, the real deal, envied by all their friends, and make them fight obstacle after obstacle to prove their love. It is a bittersweet, heart-wrenching story that will make you think a lot and wonder what you would do, which I am still debating with myself. 

One of the things I enjoyed the most was that it is told from different points of views: Lucy's, the female main character, Nell's, Lucy's sister in love, and Patricia's, Lucy's mother in love. This allows a wide view of the story and makes you connect with the characters in a deeper way. Also, I love when you are reading a book and then, you read something that makes perfect sense with the title and you think, that is a very clever title. And this happens here, you realize this story couldn't have had a more appropiate title.
