Blogtour – Thursday 19th July
A big special thankyou must go to the wonderful author, Hannah Lynn who invited me to read her book in exchange of a review. I jumped at the chance to find out more about this book and was so excited to be included on the blogtour for it, because I am psyched to share this amazing find! Every once in a while, I am amazed by a book I read and this is one of those books!
If you are looking for a seriously beautiful and well written story, then look no further. This book got me 100% in the feels, it was wonderfully imaginative, deeply enchanting and a real page-turner.
I am so looking forward to telling you more about this book, but first, lets hear more about the lady who brought the story to life.
About the Author

About the Book
Walter Augustus is dead. His current state of existence has become a monotony of sweet tea and lonely strolls and after decades stuck in the Interim — a posthumous waiting room for those still remembered on Earth — he is ready to move on. Only when he is forgotten by every living person will he be able to pass over and join his family in the next stage of the afterlife. At last the end is tantalizingly close, but bad luck and a few rash decisions may see him trapped in the Interim for all eternity.
Letty Ferguson is not dead. Letty Ferguson is a middle-aged shoe saleswoman who leads a pleasant and wholly unextraordinary life, barring the secret fortune she seems unable to tell her husband about. However, when she takes possession of an unassuming poetry anthology, life takes on a rather more extraordinary dimension.
Sometimes you read a book that is so beautifully written, so imaginative and enthralling; a book that keeps you mesmerised from the very first page. And ladies and gents! Let me tell you, this book is one of those books!
The story flows brilliantly from the very first page. The subject is imaginative and yet believable. I felt myself drawn to the characters, especially Walter who has spent many years stuck in the interim, a place which resides between Life and Afterlife. I willed this story along and enjoyed the dialogue which helped to create a brilliant feel for each of the characters. I loved Walter, a true gent who finds himself willed into chasing away the one connection he has with his past, the one connection that keeps him tethered to the interim.
I connected well with the characters, some I really liked, some I really didn’t like.
The story was ended beautifully and I felt content once I turned the final page.
I would definitely recommend this book! It is written by a fairly unknown author but it is one of those books that is a real hidden gem when you discover it! 🙂
This book was a magical, beautiful read. I am so glad that I was invited to read it by Hannah. She has created a wonderful story, something that will live on with me for a long time to come.
