And Then I Found You: Patti Callahan Henry

Rating: 2 Stars

Kate and Jack are meant to be together – or at least that’s what they think as children, growing up together in a small town. The two try to make things work until Kate and Jack have left college and should be embarking on their adult lives (finally no longer having to keep up with a long distance relationship). Unfortunately things rarely go according to plan and the two make a tough decision before heading their separate ways.
Except the past always comes back to you, and Kate (about to be proposed to by her longtime boyfriend Rowan) has to confront that past before she can have a future.

This book was sweet and simple; inspired by a true story (Callahan Henry’s sister’s story). The relationship between Kate and Jack both in present and past times are sweet and innocent and touching, although a bit maddening (why won’t Kate just move to be with Jack – why won’t Jack understand Kate’s need to keep helping young girls in tough situations, even though it puts them miles apart?)

This was a quick and cute read, everything comes together in the end and what should happen, happens. The two confront their past and in doing so, are able to move on with the future. I did enjoy both of their points of views (past and present), but Luna’s present was a bit boring and not entirely needed, in my opinion. But it was cute none the less.

I think it’s a story that will inspire hope for those possibly in the same situation (and perhaps bring some awareness to the topic of Kate and Jack’s choices.)

Disclaimer: All thoughts and opinions are simply my own honest ones and I have not been asked to write this review. Not everyone may agree with my thoughts and that’s okay! I hope you enjoy reading about mine.
