One True Loves
In her twenties, Emma Blair marries her high school sweetheart, Jesse. They build a life for themselves, far away from the expectations of their parents and the people of their hometown in Massachusetts. They travel the world together, living life to the fullest and seizing every opportunity for adventure.
On their first wedding anniversary, Jesse is on a helicopter over the Pacific when it goes missing. Just like that, Jesse is gone forever.
Emma quits her job and moves home in an effort to put her life back together. Years later, now in her thirties, Emma runs into an old friend, Sam, and finds herself falling in love again. When Emma and Sam get engaged, it feels like Emma’s second chance at happiness.
That is, until Jesse is found. He’s alive, and he’s been trying all these years to come home to her. With a husband and a fiancé, Emma has to now figure out who she is and what she wants, while trying to protect the ones she loves.
Who is her one true love? What does it mean to love truly?
Emma knows she has to listen to her heart. She’s just not sure what it’s saying.
This is the first time that I have heard this author's name. When I first picked up this book I was in between other books and so it was not really my first choice. Not that I don't like a good contemporary story even now and again. So to my great surprised I not only digged this book but I was all about it. Although it was quickly easy to see how this story was going and how it would end. Which speaking of the end, I felt that Emma made the right choice in the end. I could feel the difference between the Emma of the past and Emma of the future. She was two different and grown up.
To be honest, either way I was rooting for Sam. I felt like I barely really knew who Jesse was. His and Emma's love was more present when she wrote her letter to him then when they were together. Not like she and Sam. Now that I know what this author can bring to the table I will be checking out more books by this author. One True Loves is one of the best summer reads of 2016.
