Kelly Rimmer has out done herself in this novel. I read one other book by Rimmer and it was also very good however, I favor this one. She was able to pull you into a relationship from multiple angles while fully engaging your logic and emotions. This book brings out the reality and complexity of people, relationships, and all of the elements in between. I thought that certain parts were drawn out but only to discover that the build up and context was worth it. I can not believe how engaged I was in this couple and each person, Rimmer is a very talented writer and I’m thoroughly impressed.
If you could sum up When I Lost You in three words, what would they be?
Tragedy, Secrets, Love.
What was one of the most memorable moments of When I Lost You?
I don't want to give any spoilers but the moment they are in the apartment and Leo uses all his strength to prove to Molly that he is the man she loves, her expression tells him all he needs to know and her reasoning is heartbreaking .. to her she thinks it means he will be able to walk away again.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The innocence at the start of their 'relationship', they meet to talk about Duncan, Molly's brother and Leo's friend. He is dead and Molly wants details but during this you get a sense of the intense chemistry building between the two characters. I loved the fact Leo thinks she is beautiful but out of his reach. Two sides of the great wealth divide.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Marriage in Crisis ..
Any additional comments?
This is a wonderful story focusing on Molly and Leo, it is taken from both POV's and set in two time periods. Leo is severely injured in a car crash while working away as a correspondent out in the 'field'. Molly rushes to his bedside, but Leo has lost his memory and ability to walk. Set in Australia, these two are poles apart she is the daughter of rich parents, he has roots in the black community but their love sparkles. While Leo recovers Molly remains by him but is hiding a huge secret, as his memories return will their relationship survive? I found Leo fairly arrogant and he didn't respect Molly. How she tolerated some of his outbursts I don't know. This book covers so many emotions and had my heart beating quickly or standing still on quite a few occasions. I found it perfect as an audio book because I could immerse myself in the story and really feel a part of it. Thanks so much to Kim at Bookouture for my audiobook in return for my honest opinion.
I was captured by the storey as it unfolded and couldn't stop listening beautiful story enjoyed it so much
