  • Dubbed as the perfect summer read , I found it anything but I was relieved to be rid of it It had felt like an endurance test and I was looking for a medal for finishing it No one supplied Finding a fantastic book is a great feeling, after all we invest a lot of hours in each book It s a portion of our lives and I have an intolerance of time wasting This book felt like a waste of time I select books carefully and only have myself to blame for this one The front cover should have alerted me to th [...]


  • Review on novelicious She s a wife, mother and daughter, but somewhere over the years Jacks Morgan has lost herself Each day is jam packed with fulfilling the needs of her family and she barely has time to have a cup of tea let alone dwell of what might have been Her husband Pete may have been there through thick and thin, but he is not much help when it comes to the everyday struggles of having a stroppy teenager and a mother with Alzheimer s under the same roof.Jacks may not be living the life [...]


  • This isn t my usual kind of read at all However I m currently laid up with a broken ankle, and was looking for something easy to read through the drug and pain haze The most I can say about the book was it was OK The main character, Jacks urgh Morgan is a wife, mother and carer to her own elderly mother who is suffering from dementia The relationship between Jacks urgh and her mother was never on the best of terms even when she was little, so it s surprising that Jacks urgh takes such close care [...]


  • I was quite surprised at just how much I loved reading this delightful novel For me it turned out to be the perfect autumn read, I put on my snuggly sweater and curled up with this book and a mug of hot chocolate and lost myself in the pages and the life of Jackie Jacks I fell into her world with a bump and was instantly there, living her life and to be honest I found it a little depressing, yet there were feelings I could really relate to and a deft touch of lightness to lift the gloom which ma [...]



  • It seems like only yesterday I was totally absorbed in Amanda Prowse s last release Her Mother s Story Yet here we are only a few short months later and once again Amanda has provided her readers with another stunning story that hits you right where it matters direct to the heart With such a prolific output this is the author s third release since Christmas and there is to come this year you would be forgiven for thinking how can the author maintain the same standard across all her books But re [...]


  • The author doesn t hesitate to tackle uncomfortable subjects and this novel is no different I loved the central character of Jacks and her daydreaming about what might have been while she cares for her family and her mother who has Alzheimer s She was never that close to her mother and the frustration and impossible ness of the situation comes though so well I was on that cliff too with her I didn t think the story gelled quite as well as previous books and the ending was a bit too perfect so fo [...]


  • Although well written, I found this book boring and predictable And Jacks an ungrateful wingebag Not Amanda Prowse s best effort.


  • Really enjoyed this book, some people may not get on with the way it jumps back and forth nineteen years namely my mum I bought this book from a charity shop, it was one of the world book day ones so has been doing the rounds, after I read it I left it behind in a holiday cottage we are staying in, so hopefully people will get to enjoy this book.


  • Reading books about families will always be touching knowing about their struggles and triumphs A truly uplifting and lovely summer read.


  • The descriptions of the pressure and challenges Jackie faces are so well written, it feels real.Wonderful writing and so insightful.


  • Ugh, this was baaaad I am so glad my reading rate is high at the moment, because I don t think I could stand than two days of reading this one.Thinking this was going to be a light chick flick, I was sorely mistaken Although, the little blurb on the front didn t have me particularly caught in the first place it reminded me of one of Cecelia Ahern s books Dull and dreary, this plodded along, barely raising any hope throughout its 300 odd pages And this was supposed to be a mood lifter It was any [...]


  • Review by ireadnovels.wordpressAmanda Prowse has always loved crafting short stories and scribbling notes for potential books I have read most of Amanda Prowse s books and loved them all Peter and Jacks lived in a little Weston super Mare terrace with a small square kitchen, three bedrooms, and a bathroom and two rooms downstairs They had plans to decorate the littlest room first In a couple of years they will be on their feet and get the place real shipshape, replace the windows, get the garden [...]



  • This was an easy, enjoyable read and very moving at times I thought Jacks was a good central character and felt her relationships with her family were realistic although I wanted to shake Pete sometimes for being too nice I had great sympathy with Jacks throughout most of the book I enjoyed the plot even though it was predictable in places The ending felt a little too neat though hence only 3 stars.


  • Whilst this book was well written and realistic, it was a little too depressing for my liking Also I felt like Jacks spent almost all of the book complaining which made it hard to like her and made it difficult to like the book as it s from her perspective I can understand that her life is difficult, but I feel like she made everything harder for herself Maybe I just didn t like her character.


  • 3 5 starsThe book was well written, but i felt Jacs was just a bit too difficult to sympathise with at times Although leading a very hard life, and we meet her at a time where her life criss crosse over to mother and carer for her mum.We never know where we are going to go in life, this was a good portrayal of that.


  • A very kind book that reminds us to be honest with our loved ones, take care of our parents, support our spouses, accept our children, and, most important, to be grateful for what we have and let the past stay in the past.

  • Das Leben ist das, was du daraus machst Die Geschichte ist die realistische Darstellung von dem Alltag einer Frau, die vor allem f r ihre Familie da ist Ich habe nicht immer mit Jackies Ansichten und Verhalten bereingestimmt, jedoch ist ihre Sicht auf die Dinge nachvollziehbar und deshalb hat mich das nicht gest rt Die Figurenkonstellation wirkte so, als w rde man eine echte Familie bei ihrem Leben beobachten Letztendlich geht es in diesem Buch um die Verwirklichung der eigenen Tr ume, Bed rfnis [...]


  • 5 star review for Amanda Prowse s Perfect Daughter Once again, she takes us right into her character s head and women all over the world will identify with the everyday stresses of an ordinary mum Jacks in a monotonous marriage with 2 children to take care of, then having her mum with Dementia moving in as well and she ends up trying to be everything to everybody She wants to relive her life vicariously through her daughter but the daughter has other plans, and she feels her daughter s life will [...]


  • Another great story written by the amazing Amanda Prowse Every book of hers I read I can t stop until I finish then am sad it s gone to quickly.I loved all the characters in this book especially jacks or Jacqueline The realization she has when everything in her life goes wrong is so common in most people s life s As with all her books it s as if I m living the characters life can feel the emotions the characters are going through out the journey.As a mother and a daughter you really can resonate [...]


  • Posted in full reviewedthebook 2015 Perfect Daughter is the latest offering by Amanda Prowse and it s another beautiful, moving novel not that I expected any less Amanda really throws her heart and soul into her writing and it shows Once I had a chance to pick this book up, I just couldn t tear myself away Jacks Morgan lives in Weston super Mare with her chaotic family husband Pete, children Martha and Jonty and her mother, Ida The daily mundanities of life are not exactly what she anticipated w [...]


  • Got to love an Amanda Prowse approach to real life issues I loved the honesty of what it is like to be in the position of caring for someone you love and the ways in which this sacrifices can not only effect the way you feel, but think about life too Wonderful story, with a true and very relevant heart to a modern social issue If you would like to be whisked away by a page turner with an eye opening understanding and meaning, then I would recommend this, or any of Amanda Prowse s books.


  • While feeling a certain amount of sympathy for Jacks, she is also rather annoying and I couldn t really warm to her I did feel the book improved as it went on apart from the end which packed far to much in and neatly tidied up all the ends in a they all lived happily ever after which is totally unrealistic.


  • Adoro questo libro L ho divorato semplice, delicato, commovente e divertente La scrittura limpida e lascia trasparire tutta la bellezza della storia Un racconto di famiglia, a, felicit che affronta anche temi molto difficili il lutto, la nostalgia, i rimpianti e i sogni infranti Penso che sia una delle letture pi azzeccate e piacevoli che ho fatto quest anno.


  • Forgettable predictable About Jacks and her family her lazy husband and stroppy teenage children and her alzheimer bed ridden mother with Alzheimer s She wants the best for her kids but it doesn t go quite to plan.I can barely remember enough detail about this book to write the review, which says it all really.Sorry Amanda, not for me.


  • A bit slow to start The storyline is pretty obvious but I ve enjoyed reading it, surprisingly enough I ve spilled tears a couple of time and the characters are easy to get into If you re looking for a simple read, this is it
