Read from August 20 to 27, 2012

This is a sloooow book. It's the desert for book readers - you indulge into every word and treasure every page you turn. You cry and you sigh, and deep inside you feel really good! Why 4.5 - well, actually, the start was a tiny bit slow :-)

Sophie and Nicholas meet at his party after his concert. He is drawn to her straight away, but Sophie holds back, because she's only come to give him "a picture".

But "fate" has it and they both spend some days in Sophie's apartment. They get to know each other and fall in love. Yet, they know they have to let go of the past for them to be a future together.

If you persist past the first three - four pages you will love this book. It's packed with love, loss and grief and the challenges along the way. It's full of sexual tension, yet clean. You will love little Emily who takes on the battle with cancer like a little trooper, and the way her backstory was woven into the main plot was well done!

If you're looking for a love story with depth and honesty - this one is for you!
