Really good story. Like the movie ‘Charlie St. Cloud’ but misses out little details that make you understand the story line more.

"Highly recommended."
5 stars"

This is an excellent book. After reading the summary, I was expecting it be cliched but it was very original and I never felt like I had read something like this before. I was constantly surprised by what happened and I shed a few tears, too. It's a very bittersweet book and I enjoyed it immensely, so much so that I bought it after reading a library copy.


Heartwarming and uplifting novel examining love in all its guises. As a boy, Charlie St Cloud narrowly survived a car crash that killed Sam, his little brother. Years later, still unable to recover from his loss, Charlie has taken a job tending to the lawns and monuments in the New England cemetery where Sam is buried. When he meets Tess Carroll, a captivating, adventurous woman in training for a solo sailing trip around the globe, they discover a beautiful and uncommon connection that, after a violent storm at sea, eventually forces them to choose between death and live, past and present, holding on and letting go. The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud is a romantic and uplifting novel about second chances and the liberating power of love.
