MISS YOU by Kate Eberlen
☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
MISS YOU is a heartfelt looking into two people's lives as they go through their daily struggles, suffer loss, and decide open their hearts to love again. Though, this book turned out to be different then what I expected, I have to say that I truly enjoyed this witty, moving, and sincere story.
I loved the moments where the character's lives intersected but they never knew it. I also truly appreciated the honesty in the author's portrayal of each of the characters. Eberlen wrote how life is. There is no sugar coating the bad moments or the awkward ones. There is no glossing over the hard decisions or emotions. She lays it all out there as we follow Tess and Gus through the years until they meet again.
A copy of this book was provided by Harper and TLC Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
Tess and Gus are meant to be. They just haven't met properly yet. And perhaps they never will . . .
Today is the first day of the rest of your life is the motto on a plate in the kitchen at home, and Tess can't get it out of her head, even though she's in Florence for a final, idyllic holiday before university. Her life is about to change forever - but not in the way she expects.
Gus and his parents are also on holiday in Florence. Their lives have already changed suddenly and dramatically. Gus tries to be a dutiful son, but longs to escape and discover what sort of person he is going to be.
For one day, the paths of an eighteen-year-old girl and boy criss-cross before they each return to England.
Over the course of the next sixteen years, life and love will offer them very different challenges. Separated by distance and fate, there's no way the two of them are ever going to meet each other properly . . . or is there?
