Oh, I did love this book! If you are looking for a contemporary fiction book with a hint of magic then all she can see is definitely one you should read. An absolute pleasure to read!
Feelings are part of life – feelings are life. If you take away what people feel, you take away anything meaningful. Wanting to diminish the evil in this world is a good cause, one I have fought for the majority of my life, but not like this . .
Cherry has a hidden talent. She can see things other people can’t and she decided a long time ago to use this skill to help others. As far as the rest of the town is concerned she’s simply the kind-hearted young woman who runs the local bakery, but in private she uses her gift to add something special to her cakes so that after just one mouthful the townspeople start to feel better about their lives. They don’t know why they’re drawn to Cherry’s bakery – they just know that they’re safe there and that’s how Cherry likes it. She can help them in secret and no one will ever need to know the truth behind her gift.
And then Chase arrives in town and threatens to undo all the good Cherry has done. Because it turns out she’s not the only one who can see what she sees . . .
A story of love, food and a little bit of magic, All That She Can See is an enchanting and beautiful novel that’s guaranteed to be the most magical story you’ll read all year.
I picked this book up on a whim while I was browsing Waterstones. I confess I picked it up due to the cover, but I was pleasantly surprised with the story.
Cherry was such a unique character, driven by her passion for helping people with her baking. I loved how Fletcher made her not your typical MC; it was really refreshing to read about a woman who was comfortable with the skills she had and not influenced others perceptions.
The storyline was well paced; I found I didn’t get bored with Cherry’s life and how she came to be a baker. The concept of helping people with her baking was superb! I haven’t read anything like this in awhile.
My only issue (and would say it was a big one), is that I felt the characters could be a little older. Fletcher wrote that Cherry didn’t understand the concept of social media, I mean…what 24 year old in today’s society does not have a basic understanding of social media?! I felt it would have fitted the story better if Cherry was possibly 30-31?
Overall it was a delight to read, a contemporary novel mixed with a little bit of woo woo.
