Our Review

“I promise you this. I’ll love you until the day I die even if I have to live without you. And if it’s fifty years from now, you come home, Nick Anderson. Do you hear me? I’ll be waiting on you.” 

I found this book to be a really emotional read and let me tell you, I certainly did cry through this.

You will love these characters.  You will feel so invested in them especially as we follow them from childhood.  How could you not.  These are truly wonderful characters.

‘You can’t turn love on and off like a light switch, no matter how hard you try. All you can do is wall it off, one brick at a time, until you’ve created an impenetrable fortress around your emotions. And once that fortress is built, you camouflage it so well that even you can’t see it anymore.’

Yes, this is a love story, but it is so much more. It’s a beautiful story that spands time within the lives of Alix and Nick. It is a story that is so well written you will feel that you are on the journey through life with these two.

There will be times you will want to reach into the pages and y slap Alix for some of her decisions, but this will not detract from the love you feel for her and Nick.

The synopsis gives you a very good idea of what this book is about so I won’t go into any plot details so as not to ruin this journey for anyone else.

I absolutely loved part one where we meet Alix and Nick as children.  This relationship just warmed my heart.

“You’re the only one I’ve ever wanted, Alix, the only one I’ll ever want. That’s a promise.” 

What I will say is that this is a truly wonderful read and book I would highly recommend. Heed my warning though….have tissues handy, because you will need them.

Synopsis

weet tea, corn bread, and soup beans—everyday fare for eight-year-old Alix French, the precocious darling of a respected southern family. But nothing was ordinary about the day she met ten-year-old Nick Anderson, a boy from the wrong side of town. Armed with only a tin of bee balm and steely determination, Alix treats the raw evidence of a recent beating that mars his back, an act that changes both of their lives forever.

Through childhood disasters and teenage woes they cling together as friendship turns to love. The future looks rosy until the fateful night when Frank Anderson, Nick’s abusive father, is shot to death in his filthy trailer.

Suddenly, Nick is gone—leaving Alix alone, confused and pregnant. For the next fifteen years she wrestles with the pain of Nick’s abandonment, a bad marriage, her family and friends. But finally, she’s starting to get her life back together. Her divorce is almost final, her business is booming, and she’s content if not happy—until the day she looks up and sees Nick standing across the counter. He’s back…and he’s not alone.

Once again Alix is plunged into turmoil and pain as Nick tries to win her love, something she resists with all her strength. Only one thing might break the protective wall she’s built around her emotions—the truth about Frank Anderson’s death. But when that truth comes out and those walls crumble, neither Alix nor Nick is prepared for the emotional explosion that could destroy as well as heal.
