A Virtual Affair – Tracie Podger – Genre – Contemporary Fiction
Do you know what hope smells like?
It’s a combination of the sea, of exposed seaweed and salty air.
Of wet sand on a winter’s day.
Jayne was mid-forties when she experienced the worst and the best times of her life.
She fell in love, so desperately in love.
She lost everything overnight.
But no matter how bad life gets, how far down that dark tunnel you are, there is always a glimmer of hope.
From her dream house in Kent, via the ‘nuthouse’, and eventually to a cottage in Cornwall, Jayne takes a journey that is to wound, to destroy, and eventually heal her.
This is a story of one woman’s quest to find herself and learn to love herself again.
Is this a story about affairs? No, it’s so much more than that. It’s about depression and loss, love and laughter.
Contemporary Romance for readers over the age of 18.
My Review: A Virtual Affair should come with a Virtual Defibrillator because my heart has been broken, warmed and shocked in the space of 12 hours. I started this book last night and basically read it in 2 straight sittings. I think I have managed to feel every emotion known whilst reading this gorgeous story including loss, grief, love, lust, sadness, happiness, tears and laughter. This book is more than a story, Tracie Podger has created characters that feel so real and part of your life that you can’t help feeling all the emotions. A truly wonderful book and strongly recommended by me!
