This short novel is perfect for anyone looking for a historical romance with lovely character development and interaction. I thoroughly enjoyed each of these characters, individually and together. The point-of-view switches and overlapping timelines show the perspective of each lead and their developing arcs to excellent effect.

This book is a quick read that doesn’t seem to have much substance at first glance. In retrospect, however, the story is exactly as long as it needs to be, with a flowing nonlinear narrative that works so well at allowing the reader to experience each perspective. Jack, Everett, and Sophie are characters ahead of their time, and their happily ever after is incredibly satisfying.

A lovely summer read for enjoying in the sun with a handful of fresh strawberries.

Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
