As Archie Royle takes his final breath, three sisters race to say their goodbyes.
Two don’t make it in time.
And now, it’s all my fault they’re too late.
Despite him having dementia.
Despite them not visiting in over a month.
But I won’t let anger win.
After all, we’re all grieving, aren’t we?
Surely, as a family, we can let bygones be bygones.
It’s what Dad would want. Expect.
It’s what he deserves.
We have so much to be grateful for.
So many fond and magical memories to share.
Magical Memories is a fictional tale of loss, grief and moving on.
I read this book directly after the first one in the series, Magic O’Clock.
For me, this isn’t a book you I can really say that you enjoyed due to the content being the loss of a parent, but instead I will say that it is very well written, has a great flow and really does make you feel grateful for what you have and to cherish any time you have with love ones.
It will take you through a lot of emotions from love through loss, grief and it explores the family tensions that occur when a loss is near. It is a very poignant story.
Four stars from me for this one

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Despite being born in England, my heart now lies in Spain. Many moons ago, I was a student in Granada, Spain. I loved it so much and swore I would return one day on a more permanent basis. In 2003, I did just that.
Now, as a fur-mum to two adorable but mischievous mutts, in my free time I can usually be spotted with my nose in a book, armed with just the teeniest chunk of chocolate and a zillion pomegranates!
