Review of Beneath the Rainbow by Lisa Shambrook

Beneath the rainbow

Warning: This book will make you cry!

Seven-year-old Freya is about to have her life changed forever. As she’s leaving the park one day, Freya is hit by a car and killed. What appears to be the end of little Freya’s story is just the beginning. We travel with Freya as she finds herself in the in-between, struggling to deal with her mother’s grief. Freya dreams of creating a beautiful rainbow, but as hard as she tries, she can’t create the rainbow of her dreams. Back on earth, Freya’s mother is lost in her bereavement until she finds a letter with some of Freya’s dreams written on it. And Freya’s old neighbor fights for his life against an illness, one last dream in his heart. These dreams work their magic in the lives of Freya and those touched by her.

Enchanting and heart-warming! I highly recommend this book to everyone. Beneath the Rainbow takes the reader on a journey through heartbreak, grief, redemption, and the power of keeping dreams alive. This story had me crying from the very beginning, but it’s as much about friendship and healing as it is about grief and loss. The descriptions are vivid throughout the story, drawing the reader in to the world Freya currently inhabits and also to the world she left behind. The story is every parent’s nightmare, and the reader can easily identify with the characters. Beneath the Rainbow is emotional, engaging, and difficult to put down, even when you’re crying while reading it in public. This is a must-read not only for those who have experienced loss but for anyone who’s looking for an emotional, heart-warming story.

Beneath the Rainbow is available now on Amazon
