Publisher's Summary

Nelle Thompson lives a life of privilege during turn-of-the-century New York City. When her parents are killed in a terrible accident, she’s forced to live with her aunt’s family in a small town in Connecticut, and she is treated as a poor relation with no financial independence. Broken hearted and riddled with insomnia, Nelle’s health begins a downward spiral. When a locked part of her heart blossoms around her cousin’s fiancé Mathew Janson, Nelle doesn’t know if she can endure one more heartbreak. Miss Pearl, owner of the local apothecary shop, becomes a mother figure to Nelle, but a fateful summer day has Nelle questioning everything she's ever believed and wondering if she’ll ever love again.


What the Critics Say

"As Moore narrates the story from the alternating perspectives of Nelle and Mathew, readers should be caught up in the magical romanticism of the tale. The fast-paced book remains appealing even as it deals with difficult topics, ranging from death and depression to love and redemption. Moore tackles each issue with wisdom and grace." (Kirkus Reviews)

Beautiful story, wonderfully narrated

Would you consider the audio edition of Love Is Come to be better than the print version?

Wow. That is an unexpected question. I loved reading this book very much. However, there are obvious advantages to the audio version. That notwithstanding, I must admit that this story and this narrator create quite a unique and romantic spell, that somehow exceeds the limitations of mere words on paper.

What other book might you compare Love Is Come to and why?

For some reason, Love is Come reminds me of works by Ciara Knight. The sweetness, nostalgia and happily ever afters help me make such a connection.

Which scene was your favorite?

The train station. It has to be that special moment.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

a tender, nostalgic love story

Any additional comments?

This is one of those audiobooks that I could listen to over and over again. The narrator is exceptional.
