This book is the second that I've read by Lisa Jewell and it was by far the best!! It took me quite by surprise and I just had such a difficult time putting it down, I read it in one day!! It is an honest reflection on real life relationships and everything that can and sometimes do go wrong. You find yourself rooting for Vince & Joy and find yourself sighing when it doesn't work out the way you were expecting. I love her note on the front cover ... it says it all really ... Love never changes. Life does.
I picked this up on board a cruise ship in the paperback swap shelf of the ship's library. I was was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It was very hard to put down once I started it. It's a great read and I hope her other books are as good!
Remember falling in love for the first time? Remember thinking, This is The One? Remember life getting in the way? From adolescent snogging to apartment shares, relationships, career crises, and children, Vince & Joy is the unforgettable story of two lives lived separately but forever entwined.
Back in the 1980s, teenagers Vince and Joy met, fell desperately in love, and never quite said good-bye. Now nearly twenty years later they've both begun to ask themselves if that long-ago romance was the enduring love that they've been searching for.
