Publisher's Summary

In her 20s Emma Blair marries her high school sweetheart, Jesse. They build a life for themselves, far away from the expectations of their parents and the people of their hometown. They travel the world together, living life to the fullest.
On their first wedding anniversary, Jesse is on a helicopter over the Pacific when it goes missing. Just like that, Jesse is gone forever.
Emma quits her job and moves home in an effort to put her life back together. Years later, now in her 30s, Emma runs into an old friend, Sam, and finds herself falling in love again. When Emma and Sam get engaged, it feels like Emma's second chance at happiness. That is, until Jesse is found. He's alive, and he's been trying all these years to come home to her.

As I sit looking at the blinking cursor contemplating my Review..... words simply fail me as I try to summarize my thoughts.... because this is just so achingly tragic, so achingly beautiful and so achingly heartbreaking. What Emma, Jesse and Sam had to face was emotionally draining and the decision that Emma had to make was intense, raw and rips your heart out and your tears fill the void. It's not a love triangle... it's about old love and new love and the terrible dilemma when they collide.

This Author has written a spectacular love story... twice - and I know I'm going to have such a book hangover after this because of the histories shared, the words spoken, the sentiments given and the deep emotions that this story provoked will stay with me for a long time. Told from Emma's POV and the only complaint I have was that there was far far too many "he said - she said" and the variety of words that replace the 'saids'. The female narrator does a great male voice and you could easily tell who was talking so they were unnecessary and it would've flowed better if they just weren't SAID.

Worth a credit? Yes.... it's a 10 star romantic tragedy with a HEA ending that you really shouldn't miss.

My new favorite author!

Heart breakingly beautiful.

Taylor Jenkins Reid is a master at weaving a story. She makes you fall in love with all the characters.
