Lucie's Review: A heart tugging love story.
Best friends, Ellie and Nolan on the brink of their parting decide to bury a box in their special spot with letters to each other, so that even if they don't see each other again, they will come back in eleven years to reclaim the box of letters.
Now eleven years later, Nolan is a NBA star and the Tim Tebow of basketball, and he has held onto three things in his life, his faith, his love for basketball, and his love for Ellie.
Ellie is now the single mom of a daughter, and a cosmetologist, convince that neither God nor anyone else in her life cares about her. But when Nolan and Ellie get the chance to reconnect, will they take it?
A page turningly poignant read, that captured my heart. I haven't read any Karen Kingsbury before this one, but after reading this one I think I could be convinced into trying another.
I really liked Nolan, because he was noble and true. In this story it was fun to see all of the pieces of the story come together in such beautiful way to make this heart twisting tale turn out the way that it did.
Overall this was a bittersweet love story, that in my mind would make a great movie! I also liked the little link to Ms. Kingsbury's previous Christmas Novella The Bridge. Just all around a great read that I would recommend to new and old fans alike.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
