**Spoiler-Free** Review

Love. The emotion that made people both soar and crash. The feeling that lit humans up and burned their hearts. The beginning and ending of every journey.’

Beautiful. Soul searching. Evocative. Heart-breaking. Inspirational. Hopeful. A favourite read of this year, no question. There’s so many honours we can bestow this book and its Author, because The Gravity of Us was one of those books that grabbed our hearts in its fist and held it tight whilst we shed tears fearing our hearts would break yet marvelling at the poetic beauty and grace of its love and dreams.

“Just because you smile and act free doesn’t mean the cage doesn’t exist. It merely means you lowered your standards for how far you’ll allow yourself to fly.”

We fell in love; book love. Brittainy C Cherry’s writing is phenomenal and her words burrow deep. There was one particular chapter when upon finishing it our kindles were put aside and whispers of exclamations were spoken as we were astounded and overwhelmed at its sheer magnificence and exquisiteness.

‘I wanted to be just like her. I wanted to be an odd character, a freak of nature. I wanted to stumble and laugh out loud. I wanted to find her beautiful disaster and mix it with together with my own mess. I wanted the freedom she swam in, and her fearlessness of living in the moment.’

Two opposite hearts. One feels everything, takes great joy in life, yet feels utter sorrow too. The other is conditioned to feel nothing, to push joy and beauty away in order to avoid extreme emotion and disillusionment. Vivid artistry goes up against cold cynicism and sarcastic honesty. Circumstances breaks the cycle and the beat of two beautiful hearts. Light shines on reawakening, acceptance and pulses with life. The opening of a heart is the most beautiful sight to behold when it’s seasoned with laughter and dreams. Shedding the rock solid shell that surrounds it. The light powering on -through the cracks, beating the concrete structure into submission.

‘The woman who felt everything leaned in closer to the man who felt nothing at all.’

We had so many tears, so many tears from the beauty and the humanity. From the despair and hurt. Our hearts galloped in tandem with the words from the slow build to the sudden crescendo. Fear stemming from the turns and twists, willing and yearning for something which seemed just out of reach.

‘She was the one thing off-limits, and the only thing I’d ever craved.’

Compelling writing made us melancholy. Joyous moments made us euphoric.  We were on a journey that pulled absolutely everything out of us and we urge you to take it too. A breathtakingly moving story of immense proportion.

“Air above me, earth below me, fire within me, water surround me…”

Synopsis

Graham Russell and I weren’t made for one another.

I was driven by emotion; he was apathetic. I dreamed while he lived in nightmares. I cried when he had no tears to shed.

Despite his frozen heart and my readiness to run, we sometimes shared seconds. Seconds when our eyes locked and we saw each other’s secrets. Seconds when his lips tasted my fears, and I breathed in his pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another.

Those seconds left us floating, but when reality knocked us sideways, gravity forced us to descend.

Graham Russell wasn’t a man who knew how to love, and I wasn’t a woman who knew how to either. Yet if I had the chance to fall again, I’d fall with him forever.

Even if we were destined to crash against solid ground.
