Magic O’Clock & Magical Memories by L.S. Fellows #BlogTour @rararesources #Review

I’m thrilled to be sharing my review for both of these wonderful books today as part of the blog tour. First up is Magic O’Clock but keep on reading because you can also read my review for Magical Memories. 

Magic O’Clock:

Archie Royle is a kind, funny, gentle man.
He’s also my dad. My storyteller. My hero.
Except he doesn’t remember my face any more.
His world, these days, doesn’t include me or his family.
Life may have changed for him, but he hasn’t given up on life.
Not at all.
It’s just different.
Dad still tells his stories, albeit for a new audience.
He makes people smile and chuckle. As he always did.
He’s a fighter, a survivor and maybe sometimes too clever for his own good! He’ll surprise you. I can assure you of that.
Welcome to Magic O’Clock, where time is irrelevant and hope is unlimited.

First of all I have to mention that Magic O’Clock is a short read but oh what a wonderful story it is. In this story we meet Archie who is shown through the eyes of his daughter. She describes “the miracle” which occurs daily at three o’clock. There was such a beautiful and emotional pull for me as I experienced both sadness and joy with the characters. I was completely pulled in by this story I think the word I am looking for is captivated!

Even though I only spent a short amount of time with them it was so easy to get a feel for everything that was taking place. There is sadness but also a wonderful sense of hope that I loved!

L.S. Fellows has written a brief but powerful piece of descriptive writing that I’m sure will stay with me for quite a while.

Magical Memories

As Archie Royle takes his final breath, three sisters race to say their goodbyes.
Two don’t make it in time.
I do.
 And now, it’s all my fault they’re too late.
Despite him having dementia.
Despite them not visiting in over a month.
But I won’t let anger win.
After all, we’re all grieving, aren’t we?
Surely, as a family, we can let bygones be bygones.
It’s what Dad would want. Expect.
It’s what he deserves.
We have so much to be grateful for.
So many fond and magical memories to share.
Magical Memories is a fictional tale of loss, grief and moving on.

After reading Magic O’Clock I was looking forward to picking up Magical Memories and seeing where the story would take me next.

I have to admit that there were tears as I read the first part of this story, L.S. Fellows has clearly written this from the heart. In this book we meet all three of Archie’s daughters as they are reunited in their grief. There is a little bit of everything in this short tale from family drama, showing the impact of death to the sharing of memories that you can cherish.

L.S Fellows explores what happens after a loved one dies and how anger can pull at you. There is also a wonderful hopeful feeling that balances out with the emotional side although it is safe to say that Magical Memories certainly packs an emotional punch!

Despite being born in England, my heart now lies in Spain. Many moons ago, I was a student in Granada, Spain. I loved it so much and swore I would return one day on a more permanent basis. In 2003, I did just that.

Now, as a fur-mum to two adorable but mischievous mutts, in my free time I can usually be spotted with my nose in a book, armed with just the teeniest chunk of chocolate and a zillion pomegranates!
