After Jemma loses her memory in an horrific car accident, it seems that all the beautiful years she had with Braxton, from childhood to adulthood were forgotten. Perhaps never to be remembered. Poor Braxton. My heart bled for him. He adored Jemma. Worshipped the ground she walked on. Couldn’t imagine his life without her. Never thought he would lose her and yet, he did. In one of the cruellest ways to lose her. She was alive but had no memory of him, or the 19 years they’d known one another.
When Braxton starts writing her letters about their lives together, I cried for him. I cried for them. I can’t imagine what it is like to see someone you love. To remember every moment you’ve ever spent with them, and to have them look at you like a stranger.
It wasn’t just Braxton though. Jemma had lost everything. The memories of her parents, her grandparents, Braxton’s parents. Her whole life gone, as if someone had wiped the slate clean and left her to start over.
I loved this. I wish I hadn’t been such a chicken about facing it and reading it, and had read it earlier. A beautifully emotional story of a love that has to be remembered.
Braxton is loving, caring , gentleman who love his wife with all his heart. Distance isn't imposible to show Jem how important she is for him
"I'm in love with you Braxton, Not just friend love. Love, love. I think I have been for years, I just didn’t know it. When I heard Samantha say she was going to have sex with you, I honestly felt like I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t stand the thought of you being with anyone but me."
"What we had is far too beautiful to be forgotten. This is our story …
Love with your entire heart while you have the chance, because life is far too precious to waste on any uncertainty.
I don't think I've ever wished for a HEA for a character more than I did for Braxton. I mean, the man is amazing. Some may think he's too soft, too much of a pussy, that he should cash in his man card, but once you know his story you'll be overwhelmed by how honest, loyal and strong he really is.
The memories, all Nineteen Letters of them, were so beautiful and heart warming not only will you be recounting your own childhood and first love, but also wishing that someone loved you so whole heartedly as Braxton does to Jemma.
Even after a week, I'm still seeing so clearly in my head the climbing of the tree and fishing in the lake. Perry does such an incredible job it's almost as if you're the third wheel at their picnic.
For me though, no matter how emotional and simply beautiful it was to watch Jemma and Braxton fall in love all over again, it was the relationship between Braxton and his father which I found the most touching. Never has a supporting character captured my heart the way Braxton's dad did.
For over 12 months I though Carter, from Perry's book Bastard was my ultimate book boyfriend, but after reading Nineteen Letters and meeting Braxton, he was dethroned. It's going to take a truly amazing character to one day topple him.
I loved this book and will be rereading again. All I can hope is that one day, someone loves me as fiercely as Braxton loves Jemma!
The love between Braxton and Jemma was such a slow burning love that started when he was 7 and she was 6. We get to see the story of their budding relationship through Braxton's eyes as he writes these letters to Jemma. She lost her memories from a car accident and this was Braxton's way of telling her the story of them for the past 19 years.
My heart went out to Braxton for not only having to deal with the fact that his wife has lost her memory but his father is battling Alzheimer's, he feels truly alone so many times and that just broke my heart. I felt bad for Jemma as well because she could see that her not remembering Braxton and their life together was hard on him.
This is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read. I was hooked from the first page until the very end. Even then, I didn't want it to be over. Every time Braxton ended his letters to Jemma with "What we had was far too beautiful to be forgotten", I got chills. This is definitely one book that I wish I could experience for the first time all over again. I will absolutely be recommending this book to anyone that will listen.
