Stephanie and Jamie meet at an art retreat weekend. A quick chat turns into a stronger connection but she’s engaged to Matt and he’s married to Helen. As their paths cross again over the years, the question is how can you be so drawn to someone when you already love your partner.
As the book alternates between each character’s story over the next decade, more details emerge of Stephanie and Jamie’s relationships as well as Stephanie’s traumatic past. My enthusiasm for this rather long read ebbed and flowed. Touted as an epic love story, it just didn’t live up to that for me. Good but not epic.
