The Railwayman’s Wife by Ashley Hay

Living without Mac was like not living for Ani, but she had to make the best of it.  When she moved to Thirroul, Ani thought it would be wonderful for the rest of her life, but the railroad accident changed it all.

Everything reminded Ani of Mac. The slightest sound or sight would trigger memories.

THE RAILWAYMAN’S WIFE moves back and forth between the times before the railroad accident and after the accident and the war.

THE RAILWAYMAN’S WIFE is beautifully written with wonderful description and has odd as well as endearing characters.

You will love Ani, Mac, and Isabel. You can feel the love between Mac and Ani oozing from the pages as well as Ani’s grief and her quest for healing.

You will definitely dislike Dr. Frank and pity Roy.  Iris was a pessimistic one. The town of Thirroul seems like a city that would be a great place to live with most of the residents being ones you would want to meet.

Ms. Hay definitely gives us a glimpse into the beauty of South Wales and the hearts and desires of the characters.

THE RAILWAYMAN’S WIFE is filled with love, loss, and thoughts to ponder.

THE RAILWAYMAN’S WIFE is a book women’s fiction fans won’t want to miss.  Even though the ending was sad, it was a very positive read about healing, hope, and everyday issues. 4/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
