If I Only Had a Heart

This was such, such a beautiful little novel. Slender, easy to read in one sitting, heartbreaking (and heartwarming all at once, as the cover blurb says). It’s the story of a man named Ellis, drowning in grief when we meet him. In the most beautiful language we get the story of his childhood, his first love and then the love of his life. There is not a whole lot more to say – it’s a good love story. A bit of a love triangle. And Ellis is truly a character that will win your heart over time and again. 4.5 stars.
