Loved this book! Great writing with a heartfelt story that will hook you till the end. The plot flows from the present to the past as the main character reminiscence how he falls in love at first site with the woman he is desperately going to see before she dies. The unsaid has more weight than anything as we try to understand why things happen. A very touching tale that I would highly recommend. Note: I received a digital copy free for review and an honest and unbiased opinion.

This was a heartbreaking yet reaffirming novel. The three main characters - Webb, Bree, and Charlotte - bring a lot to this story. As Webb goes from present to past and then back to present the story makes you pause and think about how different your early life was from his and Bree's. I found this book to be a worthy read that makes you feel both happy and sad. I received this free arc from NetGalley for an honest review.

What an emotive read this proved to be, heart-breaking, simply superb and unique! The story is told from the perspective of the now rockstar, Webb Turner, relating events from the present and memories from his past. Most of these events are concerned with Bree, who he met when she moved into the house across the road from his when they were both thirteen years old. He has had a call from his Mum warning that Bree is in hospital, dying so he abandons the concert he should have been performing in to drive home to say goodbye to her. As he travels through blizzard conditions, he recalls events from the past, the tumultuous times when he struggled to define their ever changing relationship and interactions. As he explores these memories, he also revises some of his opinions and re-evaluates other relationships. Exploring traumatic events from the past, the story explores the impact of dysfunctional homes and abuse in many forms, including drugs, neglect, physical, sexual and emotional. Despite the realistic portrayal of somewhat harrowing scenarios, the story is an enthralling, emotional yet easy read. It seems likely to only have a depressing outcome but keep reading, there is hope in there, too – for me the unexpected ending was superb, truly the icing on the cake! Many thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for gifting me an ARC of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
