📖 My Review ...
Fran and Will were best friends as children and then, at eighteen, and just when their relationship was getting more complicated, Will moved away. Twenty-five years later a chance meeting brings Fran and Will together again but with the scars of the past still painful, Fran is reluctant to get hurt again.
Before We Grow Old is a gentle story about love and loss with two main characters who seem to have had their share of personal heartache. Moving forward, and backwards, in time we get to know more about Fran and Will, the reasons for their separation and the sense of excitement when they meet again. However, whilst finding each other again is wonderful, they are both very different people than they were as teenagers but with gentle consideration they agree to rekindle their relationship and go forward together again.
Nicely written with a strong sense of emotional connection Before We Grow Old is a poignant and bittersweet story about taking a second chance on love, about finding a soul mate when you thought they were lost forever, and about coping, as best you can, with everything that life throws at you.
Best Read with...a creamy latte and box of tissues.
