Lucy and Owen meet somewhere between the tenth and eleventh floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they’re rescued, they spend a single night together, wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is restored, so is reality. Lucy soon moves to Edinburgh with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father.
Lucy and Owen’s relationship plays out across the globe as they stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and—finally—a reunion in the city where they first met.
A carefully charted map of a long-distance relationship, Jennifer E. Smith’s new novel shows that the center of the world isn’t necessarily a place. It can be a person, too.
Jennifer E. Smith has yet to disappoint. If you need a good dose of romance you can pick up any one of her novels. Also if you need a break from the many series that drag you in, these standalones are great!
While I know there are romance skeptics in this world, who believe that stories such as this are far fetched. I am a firm believer so my review may be biased. The chemistry between the two characters is strong enough to fight time and space! I genuinely loved the story and the evolution of both characters.
The narrator’s for this novel each did a great job!
