They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time

Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it’s his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making.

As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence’s life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.

book review 1

I have received an advance readers copy of this novel from Netgalley for an honest review.

What would you do if a gorgeous guy from the past appears in front of your eyes, claiming that the house your family owns is theirs and the party that is celebrated is in commemoration of his birthday?

Crazy right?

But how would you react if he claims that he is from a hundred years ago from your time?

Well, this book is as crazy as it sounds.

Until We Meet Again is a story of two people coming from different timelines taking a risk of falling in love and changing the future.

Book Review

  • The story itself is unutterably beautiful. Time travel is one of the most popular theme when it comes to sci-fi movies or even in novels. It is also one of my favorite since it is very intriguing and somehow more realistic than civilization on Mars or water on the moon. Here, the story depicts two people from different timelines who, in fact, took the risk of altering the future even if they know that there are consequences that will follow.

  • The book is written in two perspectives. One is for Cassandra, the girl from 2015 and Lawrence, a guy from 1925. It enables us to see what it is like in the perspective of another. Lawrence’s lifestyle in 1925 and Cassandra’s advancement in 2015.
  • The ending of the book made me scream in the middle of the night. It is so awkward after I realized what I have done. (smiles) But the ending is oh so good that I really would like to recommend it to everyone.

Book Review

P.S. May contain spoilers. If you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read this part.

There isn’t any part of the novel that I don’t like but there are these questions running through my mind after reading the book.

Why are they having a party for the famous L. James Winthrop in the library when in fact Lawrence died when he was eighteen, in the year of 1925, because of murder? This is the time when Cassandra was still trying to save him from death.

It is made clear at the end of the book that L. J. Winthrop and Lawrence Foster is one. It is also stated that documents of L. J. Winthrop started in the 1930s. Now, how did Lawrence managed to change his name and write poetry even before his fate was changed?

Okay, I  know. my questions sounds very confusing but I really want to know your opinion to these. Especially those who have read the book in advance. (smiles)

Anyways, it is such an honor receiving an advance copy of such a great book. Reading it has been a great experience and I would really love to recommend it to every book lover I know. I admit, this is one of my favorite reads this year and I am hoping for the best on it’s release on November 3.

Until my next book review. (smiles)
