5 out of 5 stars
The story The Point by Lori Thomas Harrington is a contemporary romance book. This beautiful story is about Emma Ashby and Drew Dalton. They grew up together and shared a connection that ran deep. Then one day their love story was over with a cold and harsh breakup. It has been several years since then and now they find themselves both in Leyton, TN. While they both say they have moved on and are different people now, that deep connection refuses to die. This starts them down a journey that will have them discovering facts about their breakup and that the love they have is just not something they can let go of.
This is a book that touched my heart and had me believing in soul mates. That you have that one person who your connection to is so complete that without each other you are only half a person. That is the kind of love that Emma and Drew shared. They grew up as children together and were inseparable. They shared their hopes and dreams with each other and could never see a day when they would be apart until it happened. Their breakup devastated them both. Now Emma finds Drew newly engaged and seemingly moving on with his life. Or is he? This story is told with some flashbacks to when Emma and Drew were younger and also through memories they have of an old mansion called The Point that they always wanted to restore. This story had my emotions all over the place. I felt frustrated that both Emma and Drew felt the same love for each other but it seemed as if they would never really communicate to each other about what had happened so long ago. There is happiness when they start to rekindle their romance and anger when the truth regarding the end of their relationship was revealed. This then leads to questions regarding why Drew’s sister Julie hates Emma so much and why she broke this couple apart. Can there ever be forgiveness for what Julie did?
This story also is about the love of family and friends. Emma and Drew have amazing friends that know they still love each other and they do everything in their power to make this couple see the same thing. Their families have been close for a long time and it seems that they are not beyond arranging situations. This is the first book I have read by the author. I would highly recommend reading it to experience a romance that will have you both laughing and crying. The characters that this author has created are amazing and well developed. I found myself wanting to know more about their lives as well. Don’t miss out on reading Emma and Drew’s love story!
Emma is back in her hometown of Leyton, Tennessee for the dedication of a family friends new banquet space. She hasn’t been home in a long time and she can’t wait to leave and head back to Alabama to her job which is the only thing in her life with meaning. She doesn’t want to be in Leyton any longer than it takes to spend a little time with her mother, go to the dedication and maybe see a friend or two from high school, but mainly she just wants to not run into Drew Dalton. Drew, who seven years ago, ripped her heart out
Drew Dalton has finally moved on with his life after Emma left Leyton seven years ago after crushing his heart, he’s got a great fiancé, a good business and plans for a bright future. What more could he need? Things are good until Drew runs into his past, the memories come unburied and all he can see is Emma. All Drew wants to do is move forward and to do that he and Emma need to bury the past. In an effort to do this Drew invites Emma to work with him and his fiancé in making their old hangout, The Point, into a destination for all the townspeople. He can only do this if he has Emma help him build on their childhood dreams for the Point.
Emma agrees to help Drew with his plan then to go back to Alabama and the life she has built there. While the couple works on their project, secrets are exposed, lives are changed and they are taught that love is infinite.
This is a really good story, it speaks of love that can span time and space no matter the road blocks or choices made. It also brings to life the fact that although you don’t think you should, you can always go home. This book has all the feels so if you are looking for a poignant romance with a lot of heart the Point is the story for you.
The Point takes you on a journey through the South, first loves, friendships, heartache, secrets, betrayal, family, history, letting go and forgiveness. I felt like I was in Leyton, TN watching the lives and secrets of the people in this small Southern town unfold. I could not put this book down. I wanted to know what was going to happen to Emma and Drew. This is a heartwarming story that will keep your interest til the very end. I was not expecting the ending but was happily surprised. I laughed, got mad and cried all in the span of 3 days! I definately recommend The Point. I look forward to more books from Lori Thomas Herrington!
