How do you get over the loss of your husband? And your home too and all the trappings of your old existence.

Gennie moves back to Cornwall in search of a fresh start. Working for Marion's children's charity seems perfect. Tucked away in the countryside, close to an artists' community, it's a place for Gennie and her daughter, Alice, to rebuild their lives in peace and quiet - until ex-soldier Jack comes along with the same idea, a face from the past, forcing Gennie to confront things she would rather forget.

Involving herself with Jack and his problems is the last thing she needs, not now she's made new friends and opportunities are opening up again, but can either find happiness without the other?

  • Julia Wilson on Finding Jack ()

    Finding Jack by Sofia Due is a beautiful contemporary novel that tugged on my emotions. It is heartbreaking to witness the effects of war on a character who was the lone survivor of a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. “It can be difficult to be the one who comes home.” Despite some very hard hitting themes, Finding Jack is a beautiful novel. We see new relationships form and old ones renewed. Love and loyalty loom large. All the characters are realistic and likable. I loved the banter between the two leading ones. The Cornish landscape comes to life under the author’s artistic pen. In contrast we travel to the factories in the back streets of Birmingham (also familiar to me as it’s my home town.) I really enjoyed Finding Jack and did not want it to end. The novel spoke to my heart and made me smile.

    5 stars. The novel beautifully captures the essence of Cornwall, creating a vivid backdrop for the characters' emotional journey. The author skillfully portrays Gennie's struggles and internal conflicts, making her a relatable and sympathetic protagonist. The supporting cast of characters adds depth and complexity to the story, with their own hurdles and aspirations. Heartfelt and engaging.

  • Cordelia Spalding on Finding Jack ()

    5 stars Characters you feel you know, a pacey storyline & Cornwall as a backdrop- what more could you want? This is the second book I’ve read by this author and it didn’t disappoint! Characters who aren’t perfect, but real, who you grow to love and root for, supported by a storyline with pace that keeps the pages turning. Highly recommended.

  • Laura Bee Reads on Finding Jack ()

    This novel is wonderful, absolutely wonderful. It’s warm and heartfelt and I’ve not come across as imperfect a romantic hero as Jack in a long time. He’s so flawed, and messy and tormented and difficult. And yet…. Gennie is raising her young daughter and trying to keep it all together. She’s defensive, but not closed off. The absolute last thing she needs is Jack. And yet… Sophie Due has lots to say in this romantic novel – about war and the damage it does to both civilians and soldiers, about young adult refugees, love, and marriage, and relationship breakdowns. But also about family, and community and how healing comes in unexpected ways. There's a lot going on, and well drawn support characters, plenty of action, good communication and an HEA. If you want to read a romance that’s tender, and awkward, but also very very real, this is a cracker! Highly recommended.

  • Tyler Marshall on Finding Jack ()

    A second chance romance you won't be able to put down! I devoured this romance between these two wounded main characters. Sofia did an amazing job of not only making these characters so relatable but having amazing back stories that they felt so realistic I forgot I was reading a book at certain points. I instantly fell in love with Jack he's the perfect grumpy hero that we all need in our lives.

  • RF on Finding Jack ()

    What a great journey this book was. Not in the pack-your-bag-we're-off-on-an-adventure sense, but in the unpredictable, pushing the reader to grow along with the characters. I am all for this second type of travels. Jack is a flawed, baggage-filled character, the kind of person your mom would advise you to stay away. If Gennie hadn't known him from before their paths separated, I would have honestly rooted for them to stay apart. By Finding Jack, Gennie not only finds herself, but higher purpose, because, while this book is tagged as Romance and Women's Fiction, some of the other underlying topics are more serious and enrich the story in the most wonderful, heart warming way. Easiest five-star rating this year.
