Our Review

“When I am with you I forget who I am, and I guess I like it a little bit too much.”

Gitte: You know that feeling when you finish a book and just sit there in complete silence for a while and think to yourself wow that was a beautiful story.

“I don’t want you to be anyone other than who you are.”

That’s how I felt finishing Gone. It truly was beautiful. The writing was flawless, effortless and almost poetic a times. The characters were quite simply stunningly written in their own tragedy.

“You. You taste like the sun.”

‘The boy who looks like he’s made of the moon and sea thinks I taste like the sun. What does that even mean?’

My heart hurt so many times whilst reading yet I would break out in spontaneous smiles and chuckle at the British-ness and the humour. Yes, it did have some unexplainable circumstances and behaviour, however, overall I just loved loved loved this story! Full of guilt, self-judgement and so much hurt; Joshua and Bex, two brilliantly written characters learn to breathe and live again. Not without struggle nor refusal. For these two beautiful souls to forgive themselves was quite an emotional and healing journey. I fell in complete love with Joshua; such an amazing and beautiful character! Don’t you agree, Jenny?

Jenny:  I know exactly what you mean G. I too sat for a moment after finishing  this book reflecting on what I’d just read. And you’re right. When that happens, you know a story has had an impact on you and Gone certainly made an impact on me.

‘Joshua Adams, the poor soul has found someone nearly as fucked up as he is.’

A heartfelt story of tragedy and pain, yet brimming with love and hope.  Gone was beautifully told, impeccably written, with pure emotion that touched my heart.

“Thank you.”
“What for?”
“For waking me up.”

The British-ness of it cracked me up too. I loved the humour and wit peppered throughout Joshua and Bex’s story which is one that will stay with me for quite a while. These two wonderful people had certainly suffered a lot of deep emotional pain and turmoil yet their biggest obstacles would be themselves. Forgiving themselves and learning to move on was going to be their toughest test and my heart bled for these characters.

‘I think he is keeping secrets too. I wonder if they are as sad and as dark as mine.’

Oh you bet I fell in love with Josh-u-a. How could I not? This guy had heart, determination and a truly beautiful soul. A definite winner for me.

Synopsis

Rebecca Walters harbours a dark secret, and as the fifty-three bangles she wears on her wrists as a self-imposed sentence of guilt reminds her, she can’t even begin to consider moving on. Not after what happened on that night six months ago… a night which she can’t remember and yet managed to change her life forever.

When Rebecca comes across Joshua Adams, a man equally haunted by past tragedies, on a moonlit beach, both of their lives are destined to change forever, and when the girl made out of the sun meets the boy made out of the moon and sea, anything can happen… but will the knowledge of their murky pasts bring them together or drive them apart?

Will Rebecca finally be able to claim her freedom? Will she stay and fight to be the girl she found on the sandy beaches of Cornwall or is she destined to keep running and hiding from a past that won’t stay Gone? One thing’s for certain: either way, nothing will ever be the same again.
