The Rest of Me
By Katie Marsh
The poignant and emotive new novel from Katie Marsh, author of My Everything, A Life Without You and This Beautiful Life
'Katie Marsh writes achingly beautiful, life-affirming stories that break your heart and refuel your hope' - Miranda Dickinson. Perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes and Amanda Prowse.
Can one act of love break a family apart?
Alex believes that she can overcome anything. So when her partner Sam needs her help in the most unexpected of ways, she doesn't hesitate to offer it to him - even when it means making a huge sacrifice of her own.
But what neither of them can foresee is that this one act of love will reverse their roles within the family... leaving Alex reeling, and isolated from Sam and their two children.
How far will you go to save someone you love? And as the threads which hold her life - and the family she adores - together start to unravel, can Alex figure out the ups and downs of her new reality before everything falls apart?
The Rest of Me is a moving, emotional novel about a family navigating the aftermath of a shattering event. It will make you laugh and cry, and remind you of the importance of family and love.
Katie Marsh lives in south-west London with her family. Before being published she worked in healthcare, and her books are inspired by the bravery of the people she has met in hospitals and clinics around the country.
Katie loves strong coffee, the feel of a blank page and stealing her husband's toast. Her debut novel, My Everything, was chosen by the Evening Standard as one of the hottest summer debuts of 2015. Her second novel, A Life Without You, was a smash-hit ebook bestseller. This Beautiful Life is her third novel.
