A Review of We Are All Made of Stars by Rowan Coleman - Five**

A Review of We Are All Made of Stars by Rowan Coleman - Five**


Do not miss me, because I will always be with you…I am the air, the moon, the stars. For we are all made of stars, my beloved... Wherever you look, I will be there.

Stella Carey exists in a world of night. Married to a soldier who has returned from Afghanistan injured in body and mind, she leaves the house every evening as Vincent locks himself away, along with the secrets he brought home from the war.

During her nursing shifts, Stella writes letters for her patients to their loved ones - some full of humour, love and practical advice, others steeped in regret or pain – and promises to post these messages after their deaths.

Until one night Stella writes the letter that could give her patient one last chance at redemption, if she delivers it in time…

We Are all Made of Stars is an uplifting and heartfelt novel about life, loss and what happens in between from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Memory Book.


This book deserves 10 Stars!

Where to start? I've just finished this beautiful book and am feeling exhausted! This has to be one of the most emotional stories I've ever read.

The way the narrative blends seamlessly with the letters is a stroke of genius. I lost my mother to alcoholism and so Grace's story really hit home. I've also had a brush with cancer and may well be facing another one. So this life-affirming book was just what I needed to read.

Love and family and can get you through anything - right to the end.

Thank you, Rowan, I feel calmer and more positive now. You have a great gift for storytelling and this one will stay with me through thick and thin, good times and bad.

I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
