It was 1990, and we were tying yellow ribbons around old oak trees.

And we were waiting.

The time I’d spent with Grant Butler was stolen. Each moment between us only fueled our need for each other. He was older, and forbidden by my parents.

And then he was gone.

Grant wrote to me from Saudi Arabia, and in his very first letter, he asked me to marry him. In his last letter, he promised to hold me in his arms on my graduation day.

His last letter ended in forever.

As I tried to move on with my life, I was consumed each day with the memories of a ghost…

Of my young love. My first love.

On August 26th, 1997, he was finally found…
but I’d already lost him.

This is the story of our life…. and it’s only just begun.

Review to follow as soon as I collected my thoughts
Its an amazing story but I am a wreck just now 😭
Fair warning … keep a tissue box near

September 8th UPDATE

 

Dear Author,

As I really do not know what I should write about this book that does not give away any spoilers I think I will go what I wrote you on FB…..

#wiping away a stray tear that fell on my cell’s screen

I told you I was afraid to start reading this book because I waited such a long time for it and i was right to be scared
Even if I did not expect THAT
Is it bad that i would want to give the book 5 stars but also write to never ever read the epilogue?
I lived every moment with annie because she is exactly my age

I had already cried enough to empty a tissue box until then
But that wrecked me
I would love to beg you to change it
Cut it out make it go away
It was almost everything I hoped for
Except the epilogue

I think you just made it to my set of reading laws
Sylvia Day made my rule to never start reading a series if the books are not standalones until all parts are out
Jojo Moyes made the rule to never expect a happy ending even if its a romance
And Kimberly Adams just made the rule to never again read an epilogue if you are satisfied with the last chapter

You’re an incredible writer
But you truly wrecked me
I am still crying
