Natalie Cleary must risk her future and leap blindly into a vast unknown for the chance to build a new world with the boy she loves.

Natalie’s last summer in her small Kentucky hometown is off to a magical start… until she starts seeing the “wrong things.” They’re just momentary glimpses at first—her front door is red instead of its usual green, there’s a pre-school where the garden store should be. But then her whole town disappears for hours, fading away into rolling hills and grazing buffalo, and Nat knows something isn’t right.

That’s when she gets a visit from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls “Grandmother,” who tells her: “You have three months to save him.” The next night, under the stadium lights of the high school football field, she meets a beautiful boy named Beau, and it’s as if time just stops and nothing exists. Nothing, except Natalie and Beau.

Emily Henry’s stunning debut novel is Friday Night Lights meets The Time Traveler’s Wife, and perfectly captures those bittersweet months after high school, when we dream not only of the future, but of all the roads and paths we’ve left untaken.”

my review

I had heard so many mixed reviews of this book I had no idea if I should get it or not. I was madly in love with the cover though so I caved and bought it. I’m so glad that I did.

Another book to add to my list of favourite books. I have always been interesed in First Nation stories. I think they are beautiful. This book had so many that just added to the absolute beauty of it all.

A book that touches on love, familiarity, attachment, comfort, right and wrong, so many different things.

The end result is a beautiful story
