It is a romance of two variety individuals who have felt undesirable, probably even unworthy of affection. They’re lonely, and reply in numerous methods: Nora, by making the neighbors in her constructing her household; and Will, by filling each second of his time with work.

Loosely impressed by Romeo and Juliet, Clayborn takes the acquainted parts of Shakespeare’s story and makes use of them to hold a splendidly romantic relationship with no tragedy or silly choices. But it surely’s stuffed filled with emotion, and much that is unsaid, and the one battle is the inner stuff Nora and Must take care of to allow them to get out of their very own method.

Plus, it consists of one in every of my fav romance tropes: one-person-is-ill-and-the-other-cares-for-them. A lot cute.

Additionally, I teared up SO MUCH throughout this e-book as a result of the partitions and blocks and wounds had been so actual and tenderly realized and articulated by Clayborn so superbly.
