Where Rainbows End – Cecelia Ahern

25 Oct

Synopsis – The new novel from the number 1 bestselling author of PS, I Love You is a bittersweet tale of childhood friends Rosie and Alex whose relationship must survive many trials and tribulations, not least the discovery of their true feelings for one another. From naughty children to rebellious teenagers, Rosie and Alex have stuck by each other through thick and thin. But just as they’re discovering the joys of teenage nights on the town and dating disasters, they’re separated. Alex’s family moves from Dublin to America — and Alex goes with them. For good. Rosie’s lost without her best friend. But on the eve of her departure to join Alex in Boston, Rosie gets news that will change her life forever — and keep her at home in Ireland. Their magical connection sees them through the ups and downs of each other’s lives but neither of them knows whether their friendship can really survive the years and miles — as well as new relationships. And at the back of Rosie’s mind is whether they were meant to be more than just good friends all along. Misunderstandings, circumstances and sheer bad luck have kept them out of each others’ arms, but when presented with the ultimate opportunity, will they gamble everything — including their friendship — for true love? Destiny, Alex and Rosie discover, is a funny thing and fate isn’t quite done with them yet…

My Thoughts – This is the third book by Cecelia Ahern that i have read, the others being, If You Could See Me Know and of course P.S. I Love You. Both of these books were fantastic and i had high expectations of this book, and i have to say i wasnt disappointed. it is not like any other book that i have read as it is all written in notes, letters, faxes, emails, texts and answer phone messages. before i had read this book the format would have put me off, but it really really worked. The story spans 50 years, starting when the main characters are both 5 years old and continues until they are 50. It includes many of their relations and friends too, friends, daughters, sons, partners, husbands, wives, parents etc. I read most of this book in one night and once i had picked it up i couldnt put it down. It is a brilliant love story and shows the love between so many people. It kept me guessing until the end, and i actually almost cried too! Such a great book and highly recommended!
