Review: Pieces of You and Me
They say time can heal all wounds…
When Jess and Rupert parted ways, it was the end of a great love story that might have been. Now ten years later, the very different paths they have taken in life will bring them back together for a chance meeting.
But with so much left unsaid about the break up neither ever recovered from and with each keeping their own devastating secrets, will they finally be able to make the fractured pieces of their love for one another whole again?
Love once lost gets explored in this novel with a beautiful sense of character. Jess has a strong voice on the page that shines through dialogue and action. The supporting cast is also interesting, drawn well and full of life. The interactions are authentic. Character is my primary need in a novel and this one had me sucked in by page 3. I needed to know what would happen to these characters. I had to read to the end no matter what stood in my way.
I could’ve lived without the epistolary sections that pulled me out of the timeline. For me, they were indulgent rather than necessary. The plot was already a little slow and these sections stopped it entirely.
But my love for the well-drawn characters moved me forward despite the plodding pace. There was so much energy in the interactions - a deftly written character study that shows how twists of fate carry us all toward the changes we most need.
