Words that nearly everyone can relate to..  If you have lived, I believe you will have at some point in your life, experienced your heart breaking…  Whether it be from a relationship with a significant other, with parents, with children or indeed with a special pet, or something else entirely, to live is to experience heart break.

The reason for this post, however, is not to explore heart break, but to write about a wonderful book I have read by fellow blogger Vivienne Tuffnell called “Strangers and Pilgrims”.

It begins by exploring the lives of different people and their individual paths as they journey through life, each experiencing their own special form of misery.  Each of them getting so desperate that they type in the words “My heart is breaking and I’m dying inside” into a search engine hoping beyond hope that by some miracle, they can find what they need to begin living again.

And oh my, that is where the journey truly begins..  The way Viv brings her characters to life and weaves her way through their lives is truly magical..  I literally could not put the second half of the book down, I continued to read until 3 in the morning, without any comprehension of time passing. And yes, I did have work on the next day – so warning – read it on the weekend!

Such a talented writer, with tremendous insight into human nature, she makes each of the characters believable and draws you into their lives with effortless ease.

I really loved it..  Thank you Viv for bringing it to life.
