As Daniel watches the life ebb from her body, he wishes they’d had more time and knew each other when they were young. His wife surprises him by insisting that they did. And then she’s gone.
Daniel knows this can’t be true. Can it? They only met later in life, so why would Grace’s departing words hint at a shared youth? Haunted by this notion, Daniel journeys into the past to discover the truth.
I would like to thank the author and blog tour organiser Caroline Vincent for the ARC in return for an honest review.
I’m very glad that I decided to read this very moving novella about love, loss, friendship and second chances. It’s not easy to write a balanced and captivating story in this shortened novel form, but Shervin Jamali does so beautifully, gifting the reader with a deeply moving tale.
Daniel and Grace’s love story is told with a delicate hand, the journey they take to be together is bursting with emotion and yearning. Both characters are written so that they are easy to love, their flaws adding depth to their personalities.
There is a spiritual element to the couples love, that normally wouldn’t sit well with me, but in this case, it gives the story it’s originally. It’s handled well and is not allowed to dominate the story. In all senses this is a about love and that is what makes it special.
For me the best parts were those that focused on their love affair and all Daniel was willing to do to keep it alive. I liked both the main characters and missed them both when the book ended and You can’t ask for more than that from any book you read.
