Two people. One choice. What if ?
11th September 2001. Lucy and Gabe meet in New York on a day that will change their lives – and the world – forever. As the city burns behind them, they kiss for the very first time.
Over the next thirteen years they are torn apart, then brought back together, time and time again. It’s a journey of dreams, of desires, of jealousy, of forgiveness – and above all, love.
As Lucy is faced with a devastating choice, she wonders whether their love is a matter of destiny or chance.
…what if this is how their story ends?
A deep and meaningful story that is so beautifully written it will capture your heart as well as your attention.
This story follows Lucy as she meets her first love Gabe, but their love is not meant to be. She then meets Darren but her heart still belongs to Gabe.
I really liked Lucy, she was such a down to earth character who had a big heart (well you would need a big heart if you loved 2 men!!), she knew what she wanted in life. Gabe on the other hand was the opposite, he was care-free, unsure of where he was heading in life. I felt like he was always waiting for something better to come along – I couldn’t help adoring him though. Initially I didn’t click with Darren, I suppose I was hoping he would disappear to allow Gabe and Lucy to be together again but then I started to realise that he was a warm and loving man who cared deeply for Lucy – probably more than Gabe ever did. But would Lucy ever love him the way she loved Gabe ?
The story was told by Lucy to Gabe, kind of like a letter, the way it was wrote was very appealing and made me want to race to the end to discover what became of Gabe.
The begining part about 9/11 was so sad, it brought it all back to me, although no one will ever forget that tragic day. I still remember that day so clearly, I was at work when the news broke – it was unbelievable, the whole world was in shock. Jill wrote about this perfectly with such sensitivity.
I give this book a big 5 stars. Thanks to Lucy Richardson at HQ for sending me this proof copy.
