The Years of loving you – Ella Harper.

Back of the book : 

What if your first love was your only love ?

When Molly is diagnosed with a life-changing illness, it feels like her whole world has come crashing down. She hopes the news will make her marriage to Sam stronger. But why does Molly always call Ed in a crisis ?

Ed. The very same Ed that Molly fell in love with at a party when they were teenagers, underneath a star-filled sky. Then life took then in different directions.

Molly starts to question every decision she’s ever made.

What if they could turn back the clock ?

When the only certainty they shared was each other …


What I think : 

Molly and Ed have been friends since they were teenagers and fell in love. They were never together, life seemed to get in the way. However they did stay in each others lives and remained very good friends, always there for each other. Molly went on to meet and marry Sam and Ed has had many girlfriends since.

When Molly gets her diagnosis, the first person she wants to tell is Ed, However its her husband, Sam, who she does tell and all he seems to want to do is collect information about Molly’s illness and not actually comfort her. Ed on the other hand gives her all the comfort and support that she needs. As time goes on she feels slightly let down by Sam and seems to need Ed more and more.

Should she tell Ed how she has really felt all this time ?

Is it finally their time to be together ?

This is a really beautiful book, I could not put it down.  Although the subject matter is quite serious, it is quite uplifting also. With its wonderfully written characters its like you are there with them, involved with whats going on. Molly is a very strong character and handles what is thrown at her really well. Ed is my book hero ! He is gorgeous, so sweet and caring and loyal to all those that he cares about. I believe that everyone should have a Ed in their lives !

I’ve read Ella’s other book, which I thought was brilliant, I hoped that this book would be just as good and believe me I wasn’t disappointed, this one is as good as the last if not better, however I didn’t need quite as many tissues for this one, which has got to be a good thing !

I will looking out for Ella’s next one and be recommending this book to all my friends.

I give this wonderful book 10/10.
