FAn emotional story of love, loss, regrets and forgiveness.
You are immediately thrust into the sadness and loss within this story, Tilly losing not only her brother but her best childhood best friend and neighbor when there is a fatal accident involving her brother, her friend Lincoln and his brother who was drunk while driving the car.
Lincoln and his brother survived but Tilly's brother didn't. Lincoln's brother along with his family is shunned by the community and they all have to move away.
It's a sad beginning to the story, and as the story progressed Tilly and her family are still very much living in the past with their hurt and loss.
The story picks up again after the introduction to 4 years later when Linc returns to do renovations on the old house ready for his parents to sell. Tilly tries to avoid Linc and he also out of respect tries to stay away from Tilly and her parents but the pull between them becomes too much, they also share the same friends.
After the end is also a slow burn friends to lovers story, there are a lot of issues the characters have to work through before anything at all can happen between Linc and Tilly and although I like my romance with a faster pace I found it really slow with nothing holding my interest such as angst and drama BUT although it was slow going, it also fit with the circumstances and that wasn't something to be rushed.
A heartfelt story that would be appreciated on a lazy day were you can soak up and absorb the emotions and the journey.
