Oh, this beautiful book about star-crossed lovers absolutely slayed me! I was figuratively clutching my chest through 90 percent of it. And in Abby Craden’s capable hands, it was up there with one of the best. In fact, this belongs in an Abby’s Greatest Hits compilation that includes this, Pages for You, Alone, Turbulence, Ask, Tell and Ask Me Again. And I’ve pinpointed exactly why these have affected me so – Abby performs vulnerability and longing like no other. You FEEL every.single.moment. Her skill is nothing short of greatness. This story was a dream for die-hard romantics like me. Charlee and Alex meet in college and have a near perfect life together until circumstances force them apart. That they didn’t part because they no longer loved one another is what makes this so tortuous. As the years pass, they do all they can to move forward without the other. When their life paths bring them back into each other’s orbit, can they leave the past in the past, or will they be able to recapture what they once had? The descriptive language in this book is so deliciously swoon-worthy that I actually ached listening to it. Usually I finish one audiobook and can move on to another relatively swiftly but this one moved me so much that I need a moment to marinate in it. This is a must-buy audiobook, and I also need the paperback to live on my shelves. Loved it.
