"Este ganhei num passatempo (um cabaz de Natal)! Alguma sorte, finalmente! :D
E como já tinha lido outro da autora e não era mau de todo, resolvi começar por este. Não estou a desgostar, é uma escrita leve e descontraída, faz-me de certo modo lembrar Cecelia Ahern, mas não é nada por aí além. Isto na minha modesta opinião, porque tenho lido críticas muito boas. Lê-se bem, mas não vai ficar nos meus 10+ com toda a certeza..."

Por mais que planeemos…por muito que projectemos… uma simples sucessão de acontecimentos basta para que a nossa vida se altere para sempre. A forma como lutamos para avançar a partir daí, o modo como lidamos com a nossa dor e desespero é a base de Estarás Sempre Comigo.

A autora, Anna McPartlin, fez um extraordinário trabalho a difundir nestas páginas o sofrimento da sua protagonista, Emma, e o vazio que, de um momento para o outro, ameaça consumir a sua existência. Num registo muito puro e dire

At first I found the narrator's artless, conversational tone engaging. Then as the book dragged on ("progressed" would be inaccurate)I realized that there was nothing resembling a plot, just events following after each other with no dramatic tension or suspense. The love interest was blindingly obvious even for a chick-lit book. Also, the summaries of certain scenes(telling rather than showing) were amateurish and cliche-infested; they went like this: "They talked all night long. He realized tha ...more

As a habit, I tend to research a book before I read it. Nothing serious, but I like to look the reviews up on Goodreads or Amazon (for my Kindle). This book was recommended to me by my local book store & I thought it could be a nice, light read so I bought it. I read some of the Goodreads reviews and I didn’t really see any rave reviews of this book, which is understandable because it is chick-lit, after all. (No offense to chick-lit. I admit that I am a chick-lit reader…. go figure.) Anywa ...more

After a tough few days, this book was the perfect thing for me. It made me laugh (in public!) and it made me cry. A light read but with extreme depth in its subjects. I highly recommend it!

I love this book. I keep rereading it, and I will be really sad when I put it back.The main character is Emma, and she lives with her longtime boyfriend, John. In the beginning of the book John is hit by a car and killed. After that the reader witnesses how people grieve after losing a loved one and the many different stages. John visits Emma in her dreams whenever something important or life changing happens to her, He acts like her guardian angel. I think Anna McPartlin Did an excellent job wi ...more
CJ -Doctor can you help me, 'cause something just don't feel right
To be brief -

This book was about love, loss and growing past that bridge of grief into the waking world. The world with all of it's thorns is still beautiful and can only be appreciated by plucking it from the safe confines of it's natural resting place and experiencing both the beauty and the pain.

Emma has lost her boyfriend of many years. Her soul mate, her best friend and her lover. On the day of his death a lot happens and she can't reconcile the fact that she has not only lost him but is it

Um acontecimento trágico e marcante delineia a vida de seis pessoas que, ora unidas ora em separado, procuram encontrar o caminho para a aceitação. A dor e o sofrimento são sentimentos muito presentes, assim como a culpa e o ressentimento. Existe amor, existe amizade e, acima de tudo, existe recuperação... mas tudo tem um preço, tudo gera uma consequência e tudo precisa que alguém, ou algo, dê um primeiro passo.

‹‹Estarás Sempre Comigo›› trata-se de um romance com uma carga emocional muito forte,

Anna Mcpartlin's novel is a very realistic interpretation of a person having to pull themselves out of the grip of grief. Emma looses her long time love John and is forced to start her life over again with the help of great friends who attempt to show her the great parts of life and then push her to let go and move on. This novel was interesting because rather than telling the story of a woman getting over something like this quickly, easily, and happily, McPartlin shows that the grieving proces ...more

Emma era professora, vivia com o amor da sua vida e rodeada de amigos que amava e que a amavam, contudo uma tragédia condiciona todo o seu futuro e a forma como a mesma via o mundo que a rodeava. Ainda no auge da sua juventude deixando-se levar pelas loucuras e devaneios dessa mesma fase, vê-se assaltada pela perda de alguém que lhe é muito especial.

Numa escrita bastante emotiva, a autora apresenta-nos vários laços entre as personagens, desde a amizade, essencial para os bons momentos e ainda ma

É um facto que quando perdemos alguém que amamos o que sentimos é indescritivel!
O que começa com incredulidade, passa a apatia, para depois despertarmos para uma dor e raiva que se prolongam. Sentimos uma descrença profunda, não só nos que nos rodeiam mas em tudo o que acreditáramos até aquele momento.

Emma vê morrer o grande amor da sua vida num dia em que partilhavam a alegria da companhia dos seus melhores amigos, um dia que deixará marcas em todos. Embora muito a custo as suas vidas vão-se

Um livro que nos faz ver a vida com outros olhos, que nos faz pensar acerca das coisas mais importantes da nossa vida.
São aqueles pequenos momentos que devem ser mais valorizados, não as coisas fúteis e sem interesse da vida!

I prepared myself for a dark book about loss and the journey that follows. I had picked up this book to read and then put it down before the first word just not ready to 'go there' yet. When I finally 'went there', I did find a story about loss and the journey that follows. I also found a story with many more dimensions... funny, touching, sweet, insightful and hopeful.

This book starts off with an unhappy ending and ends with a happy beginning.

When I got this particular book, at a yard sale.
I was thrilled, I love finding books so cheap.
I didn't think I'd fall in love with every character, and the author all in one sitting, but I did.

I was so captivated by reading it, I wanted to savor it, I put it down when it was getting good, which every end of the chapter had me guessing, but I didn't want the book to end.

I love Anna McPartlin.

Dotada de um sentido de humor invejável, Anna McPartlin conquistou-me através deste "diário" que acabamos por descobrir que o é no final do livro. É sem dúvida uma bonita história, mas a partir de um momento começamos a pensar se o livro não ficaria melhor se já tivesse acabado uns momentos atrás. Anna prova-nos que ainda tem cartas a dar no final do livro, e encantou-me. Principalmente esta parte final.

As the title implies this is a tale of surviving grief and tragedy. Emma's still young when at a stupidly drinking and drug-taking party events go wrong. She loses the love of her life, John. She fades into crushing shock and grief and can't reconnect with her life.

As the book progresses we see Emma making a gradual return to normal life and finding that there is even hope of new love - if she is brave enough, or wants to reach out for it.

While this is a simple enough story, no layering of sub

Anna McPartlin is an Irish writer, and this is her first book. I thought it excellent; it kept my interest all the way. Even though at times the subject matter was not funny and rather tragic, this author has a keen sense of humor - as do so many of the Irish. I plan to seek her other books, as I really like her style.
Shelleyrae at Book'd Out
I was almost suprised I liked this so much - perhaps I did because it was something I could almost relate to. I enjoyed the mix of characters - they lacked subtlety perhaps, but I liked them all. Some real humor - hopeful rather than despairing. A little predictable but it was easy to forgive. I just really enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this wonderful novel about grief, loss, love and learning to live again. I loved the fact that I got to stay with the characters throughout a decent period of time, long enough to watch them find true lasting happiness and not just up to the happy ending. I look forward to reading more of this author.

Eine Geschichte zum Lachen und Weinen.
In Weil du bei mir bist erlebt der Leser den schweren Weg einer jungen Frau aus der Trauer zurück ins Leben. Dabei versucht die Autorin nicht, alles krampfhaft positiv und lebensbejahend zu schildern. Sie schafft es Tiefgang und einen trotzdem lockeren Schreibstil zu vereinbaren. So kann man sich perfekt auf die Handlung einlassen und in dieses tolle Buch, mit Humor und viel Gefühl, eintauchen.

Trotz der gefühlsmäßig intensiven Handlung, wirkt die Grundstimm

Pack Up The Moon had been sitting on my kindle for over 2 years unread. I finally decided to read it yesterday, and as the book started was a bit disappointed I had picked up something that looked like it was going to be a heavy hard going read.

By chapter 3 I had completely changed my mind and was thoroughly enjoying the book. It did take a bit of time to get going, but that is probably due to the subject matter.

As Pack Up The Moon progressed, I was getting more and more reluctant to put the boo

Amazing book. Definitely a page turner. It definitely goes to show that there is hope after death of a loved one. I would recommend this to anyone who has lost someone very dear to them.
