What they say:
'The course of true love never did run smooth, but is holding onto true love worth a lifetime of pain? Isobel and James are the couple everyone wants to be; wildly in love, compatible in every way and caught up in the sexually adventurous haze of young love, but just as they accept this life as theirs forever it is torn away from them. Theirs is the tale of an all-encompassing love-of-a-lifetime and the excruciating pain that so often accompanies it. This is the story of the love we all search for, but few can hold onto. James and Isobel get a second chance, but is it ever possible to get a happy ending?'

My Review:

I'm sure all of us in one time or another have seen that amazing elder couple who still hold hands and gaze into each other's eyes with love and admiration. I'm sure at one point we have all stopped to wonder, was it about this couple that allowed them to remain in love after so many years. This is exactly the scene that stars off this amazing journey of a love story.

Gabriella's life seems to be falling apart. Her marriage is on the rocks and everything else seems to be going downhill with it. Each day, what gives her hope, is seeing the lovely couple who walk together hand in hand on the green, outside her window. One day she notices that the man is longer with the woman. Determined to find out about his where-abouts, she grabs two cups of hot tea and walks over to the woman.

What we read about next, is probably one of the most heart breaking, yet beautiful love and life story about a woman named Isobel. She reflects on her teenage years and how she meets who would seem to be the love of her life James. They had that perfect young love. One that seemed to be destined from the stars. But after 3 years together the unthinkable happens and James breaks up with her. At this point you are so invested in their love story that you want to reach through the pages and squeeze his little teenage neck. But there is more to the story than you would think.

Can two people who were madly in love with one another, every find their way back? So much happens in Isobel and James' life. Frankly more than two people should ever have to endure. Other relationships, college, careers and tons of health scares. Some in which, even had this nursing school graduate shed some tears. Even though this is one heck of a love story, to me it was so much more than that. It was also a story about life and growing up and the realities of it all. How even in the hardest circumstances, one must find the will to go on and persevere. This was a beautiful story, one that will stay with me for a while, I'm sure. 

This is really an excellent debut, perfect for fans of Nicholas Sparks and lovely romantic (even heart-breaking) stories.'
