As a man holds his wife’s frail hand, he recounts a journey like no other…
Daniel and Olivia are destined to be together. At least, Daniel thinks this the night he sees Olivia across a sea of people. As he backpacks through Australia, Daniel and Liv continue to cross paths, yet never speak. Until one night, Liv joins Daniel for a drink. And that night everything changes.
Back in London, stuck in a monotonous routine, Daniel finds himself daydreaming of the woman with green eyes and fiery hair. Armed with only a name he vows to find her, yet with every passing moment, Daniel’s hopes begin to disappear. What if it wasn’t meant to be?
But then fate steps in, and Daniel and Olivia’s story can truly begin…
This is a tale of serendipity, missed chances and the power of love.
The Night We Met is an emotional novel about a woman dying from cancer that has her husband write their love story for their daughters.
I really enjoyed The Night We Met. I had so many emotions while reading this book. The premise behind the story is very sad. The book has multiple time lines switching between past and present. The switching timelines were done well and made the story more interesting. I really enjoyed Daniel and Olivia. They are both struggling for different reasons when they meet. They were traveling in Australia and New Zealand and kept running into each other. Daniel instantly is attracted to Olivia, but Olivia is grieving so doesn’t feel the same way. Olivia has a unique family situation with two mothers. Daniel and Olivia both have to figure out what they want to do with their life and develop careers. The story spans from their first meeting, time spent apart, an unexpected reunion, marriage, and leading up to the present day. The Night We Met is heartbreaking in the best way.
Thank you Aria and NetGalley for The Night We Met.
