Mallory Cook and her five-year-old son, Harry, are a little family unit who weather the storms of life together. Money is tight after Harry's father, Duncan, abandoned them to expand his business in New York. So, when Duncan fails to return Harry after a visit, Mallory boards a plane to bring her son home any way she can.
During the journey, a chance encounter with three retirees on the run from their care home leads Mallory on an unlikely group road trip across the United States. Zadie, Ernie and Jock each have their own reasons for making the journey and along the way the four of them will learn the lengths they will travel to save each other - and themselves.
For those who have read and loved Charlotte Nash’s previous books, this is a whole other level. It is heartfelt, raw and unflinchingly real. It will make you laugh out loud in place, scream in frustration at the next and the have you reaching for the tissues before the end. It’s a rollercoaster, in the best possible way.
Each character, with their own flaws and motives, bring together a range of issues that Charlotte tackles seamlessly and works together wonderfully well for the reader. There’s such a heartfelt honesty running through the pages of this novel that you will not be disappointed. The emotions leap off the pages and the descriptions of the landscapes across the US will make you want to take a road trip yourself. Saving You is as authentic as you will get.
Publicist at Hachette Australia and a complete book fiend. My bookshelves are only filled with historical fiction, romance and YA. I have an obsession with ornaments (mainly from Kmart), pom poms, Danish feta and Henry the Eighth (I have a miniature Dachshund named after him). After Harry Potter, Virginia Andrews was my first introduction to reading so you can see why I’m such a heartie at heart.
The hearties pick our favourite books of 2018 for some brilliant summer reading!
