Firstly a big thank you to lauren at Orion books for my proof copy which came with a envelope and instructions . This immediately piqued my interest… what could be in the envelope. Felt very lucky to be involved in a exciting review system!
I love Julies books ;she is a exquisite writer who captures human emotions in such a emotive way.
Together was no different.
Beautifully written in a very original format.
We started in 2016 ,essentially at the end of the story and each chapter we delved further into the past .
I swooned hard and loved reading from different eras.
This is not just a love story but a thought provoking one.
When you finish it you are left shocked and questioning your thoughts and feelings.
Obviously I’m not going to give spoilers so can’t say to much.
But let me say your heart will be captured and you will be transported into their lives both past and present.
