Wonderful book. I hated to see it end. I wanted more about their life together.

This was a very refreshing, light read. It went by quickly. Too quickly in my opinion. makes one stop and think how chance encounters may be more than just that.!! Highly recommend .

Absolutely loved it! I think some books just find a way into your life at the right time and this might be a case of that. Maybe six months from now I wouldn't feel quite the same way but this was just the perfect read for me at the moment. The premise isn't really groundbreaking as it's just a story about two people who meet in Italy and share a brief moment in time but go back to England alone. The book follows their lives for the next 16 years as they experience heartache, love, etc.. On an emotional level I just really connected with the characters, particularly Tess. I had a feeling early on this would be a tear jerker and sure enough it was. This might be a depressing read for some but I couldn't put it down as there is something about following characters over the course of years that just gets me every time. Really loved this one! I won a free copy of this book from LibraryThing but was under no obligation to post a review. All views expressed are my honest opinion.

Miss You is Kate Eberlen's absolutely wonderful debut novel. I loved the cover as it reminded me of a patchwork quilt. And then I looked a little closer at the pictures in the letters. It is two people who always seem to be headed in a different direction, never quite meeting. And that is the premise of Miss You. Miss You opens in 1997 when both Tree (short for Teresa) and Gus are on holiday in Italy. They both happen to visit a church at the same time, exchange a few words and then go on with their lives. Eberlen has created rich, full lives for both Tree and Gus. But not perfect - their lives are also filled with loss, grief, anger along with the happy moments. Miss You is told in alternating chapters, in the same time frame, from the two as the years progress. And unusually for me, I didn't have a favourite - I liked them both the same. I became so caught up in each of their lives and kept reading 'just one more chapter' to see what might happen next. What happened next, but also where. For you see, in every new time period, there's a moment when their paths cross. Not directly at first, but in passing, without recognizing that they've already met. "We think we choose our friends, but perhaps it's only just a matter of chance." "Do you believe in the one? As in, there's one person out there who's destined for you?" With every new entry and years passing, I found myself hoping for that 'star-crossed lovers' moment that their paths would cross. Do they? Will things come full circle? I'm not saying - you'll have to read Miss You to find out. I adored this book - it's warm, witty, heartwarming and real - with a touch of just maybe.......I'm looking forward to what Kate Eberlen writes next!
