The Years of Loving You - by Ella Harper

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

From the award-winning author of PIECES OF YOU comes this enthralling love story, guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and dream upon a star…

What if your first love was your only love?

When Molly is diagnosed with a life changing illness, it feels like her whole world has come crashing down. She hopes the news will make her marriage to Sam stronger. But why does Molly always call best friend Ed in a crisis?

Ed. The very same Ed that Molly fell in love with at a party when they were teenagers, underneath a star-filled sky. Then life took them in very different directions. They could only ever be friends.

Suddenly Molly starts to question every decision she’s ever made. What if they could turn back the clock? Back to the very beginning. When the only certainty they shared was each other …

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

I adored Ella’s Pieces of You and was really excited about this one. She got me hooked with her writing immediately, a wonderful story in several ways.

The story follows Molly. When it starts she is diagnosed with a life changing illness. At first she doesn’t tell anyone. Only after a while she tells her husband Sam. He is very practical about it and wants to help her. Sam however, burries himself in work and is suddenly embarrassed by things that happen because of the illness.

Thank god, she has Ed. Her teenage crush and very good friend now. A lot has happened in the past and every second chapter we got to read about that. WHat happened between her and Ed in the past, because they clearly have feelings for each other. And why did she marry Sam?!

I think that Ed and Molly had a great chemistry and I loved reading about their past.

It’s not only Molly to tell the sory, but Ed as well. All that happened made them the people they are, somehow never able to be together. Misunderstandings, secrets and other things stopped that.

Ella’s writing is touching, emotional and deep. I liked the switch between now and the past, I felt that the story got even more exciting through that. A wonderful, romantic, poignant and moving story!!!
