They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time
Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it's his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making.
As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence's life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.
I was given an ARC by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
From the time that I read Until We Meet Again's synopsis earlier this year, it's been one of my most anticipated releases. Imagine my delight when I got approved for an eARC copy though Netgalley! I was eager to read it, however I tried to hold myself back since I wanted to read it closer to the release date. Now here I am, more than 2 months before the release date, already writing a review.
For all my eagerness to read this book, I'm really glad that it did not disappoint since I'm usually disappointed when I'm too excited for something. Until We Meet Again has a unique take on the concept of time travel and it's definitely different from any other book I've read before. In my opinion, it has a bit of a Tuck Everlasting feel to it, because of that sort of mystic feeling that they both possess.
Until We Meet Again was a quick and easy read. It has been quite a long time since I last read more than half of a book in a sitting, but this one did it! Plus, it definitely broke through my reading slump!
I have mixed feelings about the ending. It was really beautifully written, but I'm still not sure if I'm happy or sad about it. There were things that I liked, and there were things that I didn't really like. Overall though, this was a pretty great book, and I'm just so glad that I wasn't disappointed.
