Blurb; A triumphant story about love, loss and finding hope–against all odds”. We looked down at the cliff jutting into the sea, a rubber boat full of kids going under the arch, and then you started running and jumping through the grass, dodging the rabbit holes, shouting at the top of your voice, so I started chasing you, trying to catch you, and we were laughing so hard as we ran and ran, kicking up rainbow showers in the leaves.”Rob Coates feels like he’s won the lottery of life. There is Anna, his incredible wife, their London town house and, most precious of all, Jack, their son, who makes every day an extraordinary adventure. But when a devastating illness befalls his family, Rob’s world begins to unravel. Suddenly finding himself alone, Rob seeks solace in photographing the skyscrapers and clifftops he and his son Jack used to visit. And just when it seems that all hope is lost, Rob embarks on the most unforgettable of journeys to find his way back to life, and forgiveness.
My Review; Before I even started this story I knew it was going to be a heart breaking and tear jerking story, which is based from true events. We Own the Sky is an emotional story that parents should never have to face. I must also mention how this story highlights the power of love and the relationship between a father and son. A story that may not be to every readers taste due to individual circumstances but a beautiful story. One that will remain in my heart. I awarded four stars and would highly recommend to you all. The story is written well, easy to read but does contain long chapters.
