From the author of Maybe in Another Life—named a People Magazine pick and a “Best Book of the Summer” by Glamour and USA Today—comes a breathtaking new love story about a woman unexpectedly forced to choose between the husband she has long thought dead and the fiancé who has finally brought her back to life.
In her twenties, Emma Blair marries her high school sweetheart, Jesse. They build a life for themselves, far away from the expectations of their parents and the people of their hometown in Massachusetts. They travel the world together, living life to the fullest and seizing every opportunity for adventure.
On their first wedding anniversary, Jesse is on a helicopter over the Pacific when it goes missing. Just like that, Jesse is gone forever.
Emma quits her job and moves home in an effort to put her life back together. Years later, now in her thirties, Emma runs into an old friend, Sam, and finds herself falling in love again. When Emma and Sam get engaged, it feels like Emma’s second chance at happiness.
That is, until Jesse is found. He’s alive, and he’s been trying all these years to come home to her. With a husband and a fiancé, Emma has to now figure out who she is and what she wants, while trying to protect the ones she loves.
Who is her one true love? What does it mean to love truly?
Emma knows she has to listen to her heart. She’s just not sure what it’s saying.
I absolutely loved this book! This is now my second book by Taylor and another one I’ve absolutely loved. I love her writing style and how she creates stories. It’s nothing like I’ve read before and that’s what makes her stick out among others.
This book made me nervous with the 2 paths Emma could take. Emma married her high school sweetheart, but on their first anniversary he disappears and is presumed dead. Jesse and Emma wanted to get away from Massachusetts, but now a widow, she goes back home. She runs into someone she used to go to school with, Sam. They get engaged not soon after. Jesse is found and wants to be back with Emma. Now torn between her husband and fiance, she has to choose who she wants to be with. But find herself also; she’s lost who she was and is struggling to figure out who she is.
Once introduced to both male characters and getting sides of the story, I picked one guy almost immediately. I don’t want to spoil it and give away who, so I’ll leave it as a mystery. :) The whole book made me nervous because I wasn’t sure what her ultimate decision would be. You have no idea who she’s going to pick in the end because she loves both men with her whole heart.
I love how this book was laid out and how the story was told. Like I said, I love Taylor’s writing style. She’s quickly becoming a favorite author of mine. This book toys with your emotions and if you’ve read any of Taylor’s I’m sure it’s the same emotions. Be prepared to have your heart strings pulled at!
