'You don't need to have read Amanda Prowse's highly acclaimed Poppy Day to fall in love with this sequel ... prepare to work your way through as many tissues as pages' Cosmopolitan.

I picked up this book at the library completely unaware that it was a series and I was hooked but it goes through the characters with you at the beginning in case you didn't know them before. I will be going back and reading the series now though! (less)

4.5 stars for making me cry through the last few chapters of Will You Remember Me? by my new Queen, Amanda Prowse -- and it was even sweeter knowing this was a signed copy that my friend Claire secured for me. I make no pretense here: I waffle back and forth between Amanda Prowse and Kate Morton as my favorite contemporary fiction female storyteller but it always comes down to who makes me tear up the most... Wow, this was quite a story and I can't wait to devour another one of her books next mo ...more

In Will You Remember Me?, we meet up again with Poppy, who was originally in Amanda’s first novel Poppy Day. Poppy is now thirty-two, married to her childhood sweetheart Mart, and a mum to two beautiful children. She loves her little house in the countryside, and with her husband home safe from his latest tour, everything seems perfect. But with being so busy caring for others, Poppy hasn’t noticed the fatigue, or the menacing lump growing on her breast. Poppy’s faced a lot of battles in her li ...more

Poppy Day is thirty two, has a husband Martin who she has known since they were kids, a daughter Peg and a son, Max. To her mind she has all she wants in life. But then she finds a lump in her breast. This book should come with a warning that it will tear at your emotions. If you can get through it without crying you are better than me. I was reaching for the tissues and sobbing at some points. Not that it is all sad. There are some laugh out loud moments, due to the characters. Poppy is a spunk ...more

Oh my goodness, I have genuinely never cried so much at a book! This is so beautifully written, I love the heart Amanda Prowse puts in all of her novels but this, IMHO is the best one yet.
It was so real and I really cared for these characters. It is a story of loss and of survival; of hopelessness and of hope. It was a very emotional time for me reading this; the story is a very truthful portrayal of a woman and her family's experience of a terminal cancer diagnosis. It was very, very moving. It

Oh, my gosh. This book MADE ME CRY MY EYES OUT!
This is such a beautiful, well-written story...albeit so poignant.
This book kind of feels really personal to me, I put myself in Poppy's shoes a lot and that made me so sad having to leave this world sooner than her loved ones...

I simply could not put this book down. A beautiful, poignant book, beautifully written tackling a very tend subject in such a way that it had me moved to tears pretty much the whole way through. The ending which I will not give away was moving and yet uplifting. Well done Amanda on a v touching and beautifully written book.

Last year I read and enjoyed my first ever Amanda Prowse novel, A Little Love. It was a delightful read, and I just loved the book cover! Amanda Prowse is a very lucky lady when it comes to her book covers - they are delightful! So when I spotted her new book cover on Amazon I was delighted! It was even better than the cover for A Little Love, would you believe? It's the twinkly stars that get me. I love twinkly stars, especially when they're bright, in a purple-blue sky.

Amanda Prowse packs another emotional wallop with this book. I had been warned that I would probably cry by the end of it but I dismissed this advice. I was doing well until right up until the end and then suddenly I found my eyes leaking, funnily enough, lol. I don't think I know another author who is as good at writing books like these that deal with everyday issues and which hit your emotions so hard.

Poppy Day is married to Martin Cricket and they have a very happy marriage. They have been to

My daughter won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and loaned it to me before she reads it. However, it is so good she may not be getting it back!

I could not put it down and finished reading it in less than 48 hours. It is such a lovely story, even though the subject is a very sad one. I really felt that I was going through everything with Poppy and her family.

This is the first book I have read by this author but it will certainly not be the last.

I did know that Amanda writes beautiful, emotional books but had in fact NO idea (null. Nada. Nope) HOW EMOTIONAL. I was on page 73 of Will You Remember Me? and already crying. No, forget page 73. Reading the synopsis gave me the creeps, made me feel so anxious, and made me do a little cry and shake my head with amazement.

Review originally posted to my blog:

Poppy Day is in her early thirties and leads an ordinary but blissful life with her two young children and her husband, former childhood sweetheart Mart. They're not rich people and don't have an awful lot of possessions, but they do have each other and that is all that matters to them. Poppy may have once dreamed of a kidney-shaped pool and a diamond ring as big as an ice cube, but in truth she loves her simple life and

Poppy is 32 and happily married to her childhood sweetheart and mother to two lovely children. One day she discovers a lump in her breast and is diagnosed with terminal cancer. The book is about how she and her family come to terms with her impending death.. I wasn't moved to tears by this book but I did find it a totally compelling read and at times quite uplifting. The characters are so well portrayed particularly Poppy and Martin. I loved the humour and thought the Epilogue was just right..

I loved this book. I've ready many of the books in the No Greater Love series and really enjoyed them but this is the best, most moving of all. Poppy Day is once again the heroine supported by her husband Martin.

I don't want to give away the story but I will say from around half way through I was in tears. At one stage I had to stop reading because I was crying so much.

A story that will touch your heart. Will have you smile and then in tears. Its been a while since a story I have read and it felt its one I would recommend. Definitely a book you will need tissues for.

As a family, they have been through quite a lot and Poppy is incredibly happy to have Martin back home, safe and sound, for the time being. However, while Poppy is busy taking care of her kids and making sure Martin enjoys his time back at home, she forgets to take go

Poppy Day’s life revolves around her two young children and her soldier husband. Being an army wife was not her original life plan, but Poppy has made a lovely family home at Barracks and she knows that one day Mart will have a safe 9-5 job.

After a wonderful family Christmas and a New Years Eve spent in the loving arms of her husband, life really couldn’t be better. Poppy had a terrible childhood with no parental love and has always dreamt of creating her own loving family. Family life now is ev

This is such a beautiful book, I'm struggling to find words that will do it justice.

After reading Poppy Day, I couldn't wait to get stuck into Will You Remember Me> and continue Poppy's story. This book started out light hearted and funny, but soon took a very serious twist, as Poppy found out that she has breast cancer, that it has spread to her bones, and that it is incurable.

When I read Poppy Day, I thought that Poppy was an incredible character and in this book, she roves just how am

It is very rare for a book to touch me in a way this story did. Cancer. A word that is the most terrifying, and enlightening of words we hear today. It can change everything about our lives, the good, the bad and the little things in-between.

For Poppy Day it did just that:

"It was a lump the size of a baked bean, that cast a dark shadow the size of a bolder, over my entire family."

This is one of my favourite quotes from the book. It just about sums up everything about cancer, no matter the kind

I won this book on Goodreads through the First Reads program and I'm so glad I did.

It's not every day that you get lucky enough to win a book as good as this one. I loved every bit of it, from cover to cover. And I mean it. I literally loved the cover. It's so beautifully done, with little gold specks that light it up a bit. The publishers did a great job making this book look fabulous.
