About the Author
Ellen lives in the wonderful county of Yorkshire, England where she spends most of her time baking, eating, baking, and eating. Occasionally she does leave the house to go to the cinema or do some food shopping though.
After spending years with an overactive imagination, she decided to put all the magic in her head to some good use and put finger to laptop where The Story of Us was born and became her debut novel. She loves to travel, her favourite destinations so far have all been in America, hence the love of all things, and all people, American. The food rocks pretty hard too, she ate until her jeans begged her to stop whilst she was there. True fact. Aside from daydreaming and eating, Ellen is a sucker for a lolcat, penguins and monkeys – she has never claimed to be normal.
I found this an absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking read. The story tugged on my heart strings and I had me wishing I was there comforting Lillie
I would totally recommend this just make sure you have a box of tissues with you.
This is a perfect short read in between those big chunky books
I gave this Novella a 5 of 5 stars
