Alice Richards looked forward to watching the seeds of love she and her husband planted bloom and grow well into their old age. But her plans for the future shrivel up and die when she learns she has an inoperable brain tumour.

Determined that she won’t die in vain, she decides to become an organ donor. With a few precious months left, Alice begins documenting her fairytale romance—from their first meeting to the children they dreamed of having. She’ll pass on every detail to her heart’s next owner… along with careful instructions to send her husband reminders of her undying love. Before her time runs out, Alice must find the perfect candidate to guide her husband through unimaginable grief and hold the memory of their love in her heart.

I Give You My Heart is an emotional romantic fiction novel with an uplifting message. If you like strong-willed women, undying love stories, and honest portrayals of coping with a terminal illness, then you’ll love SarahJane Ford’s heart-warming epic.

An unmissable love story full of warmth, beauty and with a huge, beating heart. Perfect for fans of Cecilia Ahern’s ‘P.S. I Love You’ and Jojo Moyes’ ‘Me Before You’.

My Thoughts:

I was a bit worried about reading I Give You My Heart, anxious that it would make me too sad but it really isn't completely sad, it is moving and uplifting and full of a warmth that was like being wrapped up in a hug. 

Alice Richards is dying, she has a brain tumour. She is planning on being an organ donor and she also wants to make sure that those that she cares about are going to be ok when she is no longer around. 

I really liked the character of Alice, despite the desperate situation she still thinks about others, showing a great strength and resilience. 

This is really such a beautifully told and moving story, poignant and memorable. A story that deals with bereavement and what happens to those left behind but it is also a wonderful story of love in all of its guises. 

Touching and wonderful, a superb debut.
