Recommended to Jay by: Goodreads.
Recommended for: Anyone looking for a love story.

I thought this was beautiful to read. It is very emotionally touching and if you have experienced love and lost it too, you will go through all the emotions as you're reading and feel them very strongly. I was overwhelmed to tears on just how much I could relate to the lead female character called Allie.

This book does an excellent job of reminding you that love isn't forever and you're best to grab what you really want out of life. Life is too valuable to take second best (if you can help it that is)!

I've also now realised how much I think Noah is a beautiful name. I now have another new potential name for my son if I ever have one!
