Bonnie and Stan by Anna Stuart
After 50 years together Stan still adores his wife… so why is he dating again?
Bonnie and Stan are soulmates. They met during the Swinging Sixties, to the soundtrack of The Beatles and the Merseybeat scene. Now they’ve grown up and grown old together, had children and grandchildren. They are finally building their dream home, when disaster strikes.
Stan is running out of time, and can’t bear the thought of leaving Bonnie alone. Alongside his teenage granddaughter Greya, he forms a plan to find Bonnie a new love of her life. And she must never find out…
Bonnie & Stan is a poignant, surprising love story set during the Swinging Sixties and the present day. Ultimately feel-good and full of emotion, Bonnie & Stan will make your heart sing.
Review by Kelly Lacey
Where do I begin with Bonnie and Stan ugh my heart swells when I think of them. You know I am forever harping on about those specific heart stay characters that cling on long after you have closed the last page. Well, meet Bonnie and Stan the perfect example of such well-written characters that you have an actual emotional and physical (tears, yes lots of those) reaction too.
The book ticks the want list of any reader perfectly. It has every ingredient necessary for the perfect reading experience. Flip-flopping back to Liverpool in the ’60s to present day. Now in their 70’s they are eager to build their dream home. However, with Stan receiving some shocking news the reality that he might not be around to see the house complete is overwhelmingly painful. That aside his top concern is that Bonnie shouldn’t be alone and there ensues the adventure we go on with Stan. With the flip-flopping back to the 1960s and seeing Bonnie’s story, it is beautifully brought to life on the pages.
The heart of this book is love, family and life. Taking none of them for granted and living your best life every day. I know you too will love to meet my new friends Bonnie and Stan. They have a cracking family who may be hiding some secrets too. The book is at the time of publishing only 99p on Kindle and also I highly recommend the audio book to the narrators Victoria Fox and Peter Kenny are superb. You can purchase the audio book here.
Dive into Bonnie and Stan today and leave them with your heart full of love and your mindset refreshed with the joy of life.
