    Mary O’Connor has been keeping a vigil for Jim Whitney for seven years and she’ll go to the ends of the earth to find him and bring him home The story goes backwards and forwards from 2005 to their meeting in Belfast to London especially Ealing in 2018 This is a heartbreaking story of love acceptance but wrapped in a mystery that evolves and unfolds well Mary is a lovely character you feel her love her desperation and sadness and her need for self preservation and it tears at your heartstrings This is a thoughtful novel that covers some relevant issues it’s well written with a good premise and a well executed plot line I like the friendship angle and how that can be a very powerful thing which can help give you a second chance Through her friends especially Alice Mary reassesses the truth of her relationship with Jim which becomes a very positive thing The story ends on an optimistic note which I like Overall this is an enjoyable read which makes you think I definitely want to read by Abbie Greaves With thanks to NetGalley and Random House UKCornerstone for the arc for an honest review

    I don’t know how to describe this book beyond the fact that I found it utterly heartbreaking Why would Mary sit at Ealing station every day for SEVEN years holding a sign saying ‘come home Jim’ Why did Jim just disappear one day after being in a loving six year relationship with Mary How do you recover from that Where has Jim gone Does he want to be found Abbie Greaves has written a heartbreaking mystery story about love depression missing persons friendships and the search for the truth Mary is supported by a group of friends who are eually well written; Ted the manager of a helpline Olive one of the call handlers Kit a young banker and Alice a journalist who is looking for a scoop to save her job They pull together to try and find out the truth about Jim’s disappearance and in the process have a journey of self discovery A truly fabulous read you won’t be disappointed I will be looking out for other books by this author she’s a new favourite Keep the tissues handy

    Anywhere for You is unlike anything I have read before It seems like a story of love and loss initially but then unfolds to be a sort of mystery story as well how all of these characters ended up where they are now The story is heartbreaking but also restores your faith in people and gives you hope for second chances Such a well done execution balancing so many emotions characters and storylines I'll be thinking about this book for awhile This would make an excellent book club pickMany thanks to William Morrow Netgalley for an ARC

    Also known as 'Anywhere for you'The reviews are true this is a heart wrenching heart breaking book It's terribly sad from the very beginning Poor Mary has spent the last seven years at Ealing Broadway station holding a sign up that says 'Come home Jim' She barely exists She works in a supermarket by day and volunteers at a helpline at night spending the time in between at the stationBut Mary is well liked by those at the helpline and after she goes social media viral one day shouting at people at the station when it's overcrowded a journalist and her fellow volunteers start looking into where Jim might be What happened when he went missing Where might he have goneThey don't have a lot to go on because Mary has never revealed a lot of the details but they have hopeFor me this book was on the verge of too heartbreaking I was so sad for Mary and her wasted years I was angry at Jim It does end on a hopeful note It does have important messages about kindness and helping our fellow humans about not judging people for the unknown battles they are fightingBut but but when I ended up crying at the end it was sad and angry tears than cathartic ones I don't know that the story gave me much hope I just got annoyed with fictional peopleI think this has the potential to go big It's written well the characters are lovely and all come to life and it hits hard in the emotions

    The Ends of the Earth Abbie GreavesReview from Jeannie Zelos book reviewsGenre General fictionI was really intrigued by the description and having enjoyed Abbie's novels before I really expected to love it Maybe in a different time I would but I'm reading this in November 20 caught in the Covid depression fugue that has many of us in its hold and its just too drear to somber for me It deals with such important issues of mental health that I feel bad about saying I didn't enjoy it but I couldn't really connect properly to the story or the characters I felt when I got to the end and of course not the end I wanted that I had uestions than answers and I just don't get along with stories that make me feel that way I like everything – or almost everything – wrapped up uestions answered no missing parts and here that didn't happen Unless I've missed something ; Stars Two I might come back and reread one day when times are less grim and my mind can take a book that has a lot of sadness in Right now its just not a story for me That's down to me not the book others love it and you may too ARC supplied by Netgalley and publishers

    Mary and Jim have a whirlwind romance that seems straight out of a Hallmark movie but all is not as it seems Jim is dealing with mental health demons and just what toll does that have on them both And then just like that Jim is gone Mary is devastated but determined that he will come home The story goes between the time when Mary and Jim met the present day when their relationship started to fragment and a few years between Seven long years have passed and Mary keeps on her nightly vigil at the train station holding her sign and hoping that Jim will come home And then she receives strange calls to the charity helpline she volunteers at Could it be Jim reaching out after all these yearsAn unlikely dynamic duo team up to track down Jim to find some answers to Mary and end up on a journey the pair didn’t expect Will Alice betray Mary and run her expose story to save her bacon at the newspaperIs Jim still Alice Where has he been for seven years Will Jim ever come homeWill Mary ever forgive TedAnd will anyone get any closureA really enjoyable read that I devoured in just two days

    Oh wow what a wonderful bookMary fell in love with Jim and thought it would be forever But then one day Jim just disappears and Mary spends the next 7 years standing outside Ealing station with a sign saying ‘Come Home Jim’As the story unravels from the present to when she first met Jim and the 6 years leading up to his disappearance you realise their love wasn’t uite as perfect as Mary wants to rememberAbbie Greaves makes you fall in love with Mary and her friends Ted Kit and Alice who are all dealing with their own secret demonsA story of mental illness friendship love heartbreak and acceptance this book had it allAnd don’t get me started on the letter at the end I ugly cried So beautifully written thank you to NetGalley and Random House UK Cornerstone for this ARC in exchange for an honest review

  10. Heather Trevis Heather Trevis says:

    This novel about a woman who seven years after her lover's disappearance still keeps a public vigil for him displaying a cardboard sign saying 'come home Jim' was less moving than I'd hoped as I found it difficult to sympathise with the main characters despite the drawn out sentimentality and the mental health issues the book attempts to highlight As a result I found the novel very slow going especially the first third where I would have given up reading had it not been for the introduction of secondary characters Alice and Kit I was also curious about the mystery of Jim's disappearance compelling me to read on to the rather pat ending This one fell flat for me I'm afraid
