My thoughts…

We are halfway through and I have a new ‘Favourite’ book of the year. Maybe even decade. I cannot believe this is a debut novel, but it is and it’s absolutely perfect. I finished it in around 24 hours because I was that hooked – but I had to take a deep breath and let the tears stop before I could get my thoughts down into words.

Throughout this book I desperately wished for a Happily Ever After. I thought there was only one way that this could happen. And yet, I was surprised when there was a hugely important underlying message throughout this. That Happily Ever After looks different to everyone. Nobody’s is the same. And it’s quite possible to have more than one, it truly is.

Joel and Callie tell the story through their own voices. And they have so very different voices. It’s incredible to read such individual characters who weave together so well. Their presence throughout the book and no matter what life throws at them, is gentle. Their softness and serenity are extremely apparent and Holly writes them with a truly dedicated hand and beautiful words.

This is THE Love Story of the decade. Never mind the year. And it will break your heart into pieces. But you’ll still love it. Because that’s what love does to you. Trust me. Just read the book and you’ll know.

About the book…

Joel has sworn off falling in love. But when he meets Callie, he can’t help being drawn to her. In Callie, he sees a second chance at life. And in Joel, Callie discovers the kind of love she’d always hoped was real. They challenge one another to take chances, to laugh, and to trust that no matter how hard each falls, the other will be there to catch them.

But Joel has a secret. He dreams about the people he loves, and these dreams always come true. One night, Joel has the dream of Callie he’s feared the most, and each must decide: Can Callie stay, knowing her fate? And if her days must be numbered, is there a life she is meant to live?

Told in Joel and Callie’s voices, The Sight of You is a sweeping, romantic, and unforgettable American debut, about the bravery it takes to love, especially when we think we know how the story will end.
