“...if you could make a beautiful piece of art from discarded newspapers and old matchbooks, then it meant that everything had potential. And maybe people were like collages-no matter how broken or useless we felt, we were an essential part of the whole. We mattered.”
If there is only one love story you want to read this year - this is the book for you. Gritty, beautiful, tender and uplifting, the story of Skylar and Josh is 'the' romance for our times.
Josh is damaged. A young war vet missing his leg, he's ended up back in the town he tried so hard to escape. Skylar has just graduated and dreams of college, while her mother falls apart in front of her.
Josh and Skylar reconnect while working part-time at a motel on the edge of town, and their love blossoms, tears, screams and grows. This book has it all - great big swooping heart-felt moments, fantastic quotes, believable characters and even a cute service-dog.
This book is breathtaking, hopeful and heartfelt - read it. PM
