LoveReading View on The Two of Us

May 2015 Debut of the Month.

Eloquently emotional and amusingly witty, this is a beautifully written and utterly compelling relationship tale. It’s easy to find yourself falling in love with this book as you read, the author has the ability to make your heart weep, your thoughts laugh and your soul sing. There are some genuinely funny, sharp and perceptive laugh out loud moments to be had along the way, often alongside or next to the sad, poignant and heartrending. You are encouraged to emotionally connect with Fisher, he feels real, as though you're hearing one of your best friends confide in you. Because it’s Fisher disclosing their story, there is often an enigmatic veil covering Ivy's thoughts and therefore when revealed, her feelings are particularly highlighted and emphasised. There is an abundance of heart and soul emanating from the pages and this wonderfully moving novel is one to cherish. ~ Liz Robinson

The Two of Us Synopsis

Fisher and Ivy have been an item for a whole nineteen days. And they just know they are meant to be together. The fact that they know little else about each other is a minor detail. Over the course of twelve months, in which their lives will change forever, Fisher and Ivy discover that falling in love is one thing, but staying there is an entirely different story. The Two of Us is a charming, honest and heart-breaking novel about life, love, and the importance of taking neither one for granted.
