How to be brave is a heartwarming and heart wrenching story all mixed in together. Natalie and Rose's story intertwined with the story of the man in the brown suit on a boat.

For me, it started off as a journey for a mother and daughter going through a life changing time with the diagnosis of Rose's diabetes. As I got further into the book, it became more about the crew's survival and whether they would be rescued. At times I was sat with Colin in the rocking boat in the rough Atlantic Ocean.

It's not my usual read; I must admit I bought the book as Louise Beech is a member of THE Book Club on Facebook (which I am also a member of). I decided to read it as I was going to be meeting Louise at a gathering for the aforementioned group. I am so glad I did. It has beautiful storytelling; it's amazing that this is the author's debut!

I will definitely be downloading Louise's next book when it's out.
