Summary

Juliet Young always writes letters to her mother, a world-traveling photojournalist. Even after her mother's death, she leaves letters at her grave. It's the only way Juliet can cope.

Declan Murphy isn't the sort of guy you want to cross. In the midst of his court-ordered community service at the local cemetery, he's trying to escape the demons of his past.

When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can't resist writing back. Soon, he's opening up to a perfect stranger, and their connection is immediate. But neither Declan nor Juliet knows that they're not actually strangers. When life at school interferes with their secret life of letters, sparks will fly as Juliet and Declan discover truths that might tear them apart.

Much more emotional read

It was a good listen, but it was much more emotional listen than I expected. Also, the narrators are perfectly suited to narrate this story.

Great book, loved it.

The performances were captivating and I couldn't stop listening. This book had so many twists it kept me guessing to the end.

Fantastic!

I really enjoyed this book, so much so that I'll. I doubt listen again.

I loved the performance just as much as the writing and the emotions were both powerful and almost palpable! Declan and Juliet share such a chemistry.

I sincerely hope for a sequel, although I doubt that will happen. We'll see.

Good Book

Any additional comments?

This was a good book. It is high school kids. Which I really didn't realize that. But it was still good. Narration is on point.

Stunning .. just read it, please :)

I bought this book on a whim and I didn't know what to expect, and it was such a pleasant surprise for me that I loved each moment of it .. it was an amazing performance in every way, the writing style, the characters, the story .. when you can't find a path, make it .. I just love this empowering stories, the narration was equally good and they were suitable for thier characters, most recommended I love it so much

Fantastic!

Wow! What a great listen! This story kept me interested from start to finish. The characters are engaging and very well developed. I cared about them, felt their anguish and joy. Was frustrated by decisions they made when I knew it was the wrong one. The narration was excellent.
I was sad when the story ended, I wanted more...

YES!! What a love story!

I really enjoyed this book!!! I love letter writing and I think it’s a form of art that is underused these days. The cool thing about this book is that it slowly moved towards emails and instant messages. So it definitely keeps up with technology.

The main characters were also very endearing. I loved how both characters were strong-minded and intelligent. Of course Declan had the “bad boy” stereotype, but I like how the author used his trauma to give him depth, charm, and meaning. I liked Juliet. She got slightly annoying towards the end when she started acting impulsive with her words and actions. I don’t like when characters have tons of opportunity to tell the truth and they choose not to out of unnecessary fear “if I tell him who I am, then we’ll lose the magic between us” blah blah blah. Get a grip, girl!

But in the end, I really enjoyed the story and I found myself entranced in the love story that was building. The conflict was also really well done. It didn’t seemed forced and it kept me invested in “how are they going to get through this.”

The narrators were SO good!! Lots of emotion and feeling within their reading. Both worked so well together!

Overall, great story and LOVED that it was taken place in Anne Arundel County, MD.

Awesome

I rarely review audiobooks. However this one deserves a serious kudos. The voice actors did great, but the story was amazing that they had to work with. I was just sad when it ended.

An emotional punch!

This was very good. The narrators did a great job capturing the characters' voices - and the story really put me through the wringer.

Great Narrators & Story

This was wonderful, except for the editing. The pauses between chapter were so long I thought something was wrong with my app.

A very Sweet, sad, touching book

You could really feel their pain and rare emotion through the words. It made this book great! However, I thought it was very slow and at times, extremely frustrating.

Good story, a little slow

This audiobook was a good story overall, I just felt it moved a little slow and I found it hard to believe the two main characters didn't figure out who each other was until almost the end of the book. The narration was decent, I just felt the book was a little slow to progress.
