Jensen's family, the family home, and the traditions of her past relatives have made her who she is, and when she learns that the man she's with doesn't value any of it, she leaves him and goes on an online chatroom, something she'd normally be too old-fashioned to bother with, and happens across Anders, a man who seems made by God just for her. It isn't long before he's wedged his way into her psyche and eventually her heart. The only problem: Anders is from Denmark and is as firmly rooted in his traditions as she. When they are faced with the obstacle of how to be together without leaving their subsequent families and traditions behind, they have to figure out what is more important: Past memories or future memories?
It's rare that I read a book that brings me to tears, but this one did it a few times. I loved how fate brought Anders and Jensen to one another. Anders was able to translate Danish letters from Jensen's grandmother that no one in her family could read, thus revealing family secrets that would have been left buried if she hadn't met Anders. Jensen learned about her family and so much about herself that she was forced to realize that Anders was the man for her, but just in the wrong part of the world. The way this story unfolded was like poetic clockwork. Nothing out of place, every single piece of storyline locking together, and when it was done, it was so perfect that I was fully satisfied with the reading.
A FIRM FIVE STARS! I hope there is more to come, hopefully a book-turned-series!
Night and Day is quite realistic. I can relate to Jensen and what she goes through at the beginning with her siblings; the brother threatening to tear down their grandparents old house, when Jensen wants to see it left as is. The brother burning items he doesn't find useful even though Jensen finds each item a keepsake as they once belonged to their grandparents. Among these items are letters and a quilt which Jensen begins to discuss with someone online. She needed someone to interpret these letters as they seem to be written in Danish. She learns latter that this someone is a man and the story of Night and Day begins to grow from there.
This focuses on Jensen and Anders, and I loved watching their friendship blossom over the pages, finally turning into a romance.
There are so many obstacles that both characters face, and I found myself sometimes even holding my breath not sure if they’d overcome them.
The author does a fantastic job weaving all these delightful story threads together into one beautiful tapestry. Especially the the house almost becoming a character of its own.
Wonderful, wonderful! Highly recommended.
Night and Day depicts a modern day tale of global love. Long distance romance has become a somewhat familiar challenge in today’s world. Jensen and Anders relationship gives us an insider’s look into the experience of falling in love with someone who takes the term “geographically undesirable” to a whole new level. Even though the pair seems to be well-suited, the fact that Jensen lives in the U.S. and Anders in Denmark is a true challenge. As they learn more about each other their connection strengthens. This is a well-written tale with characters who come to life on the pages.
