Young architect Micheal Hillyard and artist Nancy McAllister are determined to get married despite his wealthy mother’s disapproval. Then minutes before their wedding, a terrifying accident and a cruel deception separate Micheal and Nancy–perhaps forever. Each pursues a new life–Nancy in California, Micheal in New York. But eventually nothing–and no one–can keep them apart as they keep their vow never to say good-bye
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The last time I read this was a decade ago and that was before my paperback copy was never returned to me. Luckily, I found an e-book. Thank you techy gods!
I think I decided to re-read this because I was curious to know whether or not the twentysomething me would still love it. I was only a high school sophomore then so what the heck did I know about “good” books anyway. At first, I thought it would maybe be like watching Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie and then realizing how it totally sucked – I can’t believe I had a huge crush on Tommy (complete with Kimberly’s high-pitched squeals).
Well, you know what, I STILL LOVE IT! So, it shall remain as one of my all-time favorite love stories ever. Granted, it may not have the most original plot – in fact, I’m pretty sure it can fit right in with all the New Adult books these days, minus all the angst – but considering it was published in 1999, I think it’s really amazing.
