Imogen seems an unlikely heroine at first, unsure of herself and her place in the world despite planning everything and remaining as sane as possible. When – shortly after losing her mother and her twin sister – she is faced with her own impending death, she makes the decision to break out of the circle and for once really live. This decision sets the stone rolling. It brings her to Paris, where she meets handsome, mysterious Thierry and falls for him. I loved learning more about the protagonist alongside her, finding out what made her behave like this and who and what she could be. It was wonderful seeing her finally accept herself and be herself and love herself, partly thanks to Thierry.
As for Thierry, he’s just perfect. Much, much more than only handsome and charismatic and charming, he’s filled with a determined drive, with a soft heart, intelligence and true kindness. I found it very believable how meeting and falling in love with Imogen also changed him and made him realize he’s much more than he or others give him credit for.
I devoured this book in two days, and I will definitely read it again, for it has left a lasting impression on me. It’s about much more than just romance, although the love story is a wonderfully executed one. There’s a hidden lesson in there about self-acceptance, confidence, trust and a joy for life.
