When You're Gone Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Compelling, heart-breaking, and emotionally vivid, When You’re Gone will break your heart and fix it anew. A gripping and emotional novel about family, love and sacrifice.
It is 1958: In a small town like Athenry, people talk. Everyone’s noticed that the injury which stopped Annie Fagan’s father from working doesn’t prevent him from hitting his wife. But a man’s home is his castle, and no one is going to intervene. Until Annie runs into Arthur ‘Sketch’ Talbot. Sketch is determined to help Annie, and the two soon fall in love. But Annie’s father won’t give his daughter up lightly, and Sketch’s attempts to save her will have devastating consequences....
Now: Holly’s world is falling apart. Her unborn baby is seriously ill, her relationship is fracturing before her eyes, and her Nana is dying. But Nana has one final wish before she leaves: to read, one last time, the handwritten story of her first – and last – love, Arthur ‘Sketch’ Talbot. As Holly reads to Nana, could it help her find the strength to face her own future? Could fulfilling her grandmother’s final wish really be a gift for Holly?

A beautifully told story filled with heartbreak and hope.
Loved this book
This story is told from alternating points of view, by Holly and her grandmother Annie. It is a heartfelt story about love, loss, friendship, fate.....but mostly about love. So much love in this story, in all its guises.
I so wanted to reach into the book and rescue the young Annie from her homelife, and I also wanted to help Holly when she was struggling with a major crisis in her life, but I just kept on reading and hoped that things would work out for both of them.
The book was powerful and emotional, for sure. I cried several times from the poignancy of it all but the overarching feeling I got were the strong bonds that tied all the characters together - family and love. At the end of the day, that is the most important thing in life.
5 stars from me.
