What happens when two people who are meant to be together can't seem to get it right?
Rosie and Alex are destined for each other, and everyone seems to know it but them. Best friends since childhood, they are separated as teenagers when Alex and his family relocate from Dublin to Boston.
Like two ships always passing in the night, Rosie and Alex stay friends, and though years pass, the two remain firmly attached via emails and letters. Heartbroken, they learn to live without each other. But destiny is a funny thing, and in this novel of several missed opportunities, Rosie and Alex learn that fate isn't quite done with them yet.

Goes on waaaay too long - and the ending doesn't deliver.
I liked this story, but it just went on and on and literally spans FIVE decades for two characters. I found it frustrating bc you knew they'd end up together but it just took SO BLOODY LONG. Like this book could've easily been half as long. The correspondence only storytelling format grew tiresome. Also *spoiler alert* after sitting thru decades of these people's lives and emails, they only finally get together on the last page and Don't. Even. Kiss. Wtfffff?

Long and Predictable
Not a fan of the genre, so let the haters hate. Bought this for my daughter and in a period between good books, gave it a listen, too. Rosie and best friend fall in love at different points in time, not quite syncing up as they travel through life choices. The book was infinitely long and I sped it up to finish. Have a thing about finishing what I start, no matter how bad. It wasn't terrible, but there was nothing new or spectacular. Loved the narrator, but do not recommend the book.
