Leslie met Ethan when she was ten years old and for the next few years Ethan and Leslie built a friendship. He was her next door neighbor. Ethan would climb through her window to escape the wrath of his father.
The story alternated between past and present. Leslie and Ethan were the main characters. The story took place in Prescott, Arizona. This was a contemporary love story about a young love that was not ready for the heavy burdens of life.
Leslie and Ethan spent every moment together. When Leslie was not practicing ballet she was spending her time with Ethan. For eight years they were inseparable. When Leslie graduated from high school an unexpected turn of events changed the course of their lives. Leslie spent the next eight years away from home.
The time away allowed both characters time to grow from the responsibilities their families placed upon them. Some situations improved while others were created.
Sadly for me I remained indifferent towards the progression of Leslie and Ethan's characters. The circumstances leading up to the closure of their situations was anticlimactic. I liked the easy transition of them inserting themselves back into each other's lives, yet I felt the time away did not reveal the growth I hoped for. Neither character made a great impact on their lives when choices were made for them.
More than anything the book really needs an editor/proofreader. There are numerous grammar/spelling issues as well as repeated use of incorrect words, e.g. peripheral/periphery, carnage/carcass, condescending/condensing, etc.
I liked the relationship between Ethan & Leslie and the history they shared. There was a whole lot of angst involved, maybe just a bit too much for me.
I was an o.k. read. It certainly has potential but this one just didn’t do it for me.
By Callie Anderson
Ok so I've sort of fallen in love with Callie Anderson and I'm sad that I have now read all of her words. May we have another Callie?!
Ok- the book. Broken Dreams. Up first, love the nick name freckles. #win
This was a happy book for me. I finished invisible love letters and endless love letters yesterday and I am still recovering. I needed a book that made me happy. This was it.
It was nice to explore Leslie and who she was, and where she came from. Her story was amazing. Her life was challenged in all sorts of ways and it made her strong and loving. I didn't realize this was the Leslie from Love Letters so when I saw Lyras name- I cried. Damn you Callie!
Anyway ~ I adored her love story with Ethan and recommend reading this book to anyone. Especially those still hurting from her former words. It's a second chance romance that has you becoming the cheerleader for future. It's a second chance for almost all of her relationships and just a great turn around book.
Go read it peeps!
