Do you ever wish you had the chance to meet someone again for the first time?
When Leo and Molly met and married, they believed they were invincible. Together they could take on the world. But Leo, a war correspondent, lives for life on the edge, and when he takes a step into the unknown, tragedy strikes and he loses his memory. Molly rushes to help him fill in the gaps and soon they start falling in love all over again.
The trouble is, Molly is hiding something. Something big. The devoted wife at Leo’s bedside is a sham; Leo and Molly’s marriage was on the rocks long before Leo’s accident.
The closer Molly gets to her husband the more scared she becomes that he will remember. As Leo’s memory begins to trickle back will Molly lose the man she loves for a second time?
An emotional, heartbreaking read that will restore your faith in the power of love.
If you like to lose yourself in Jojo Moyes or Nicholas Sparks then you will love WHEN I LOST YOU, the deeply moving new novel from Kelly Rimmer.
The story alternates between Molly and Leo in past and present. In the past we get to see how both characters meet and the relationship that grows between them. In the present, well for Leo he is having to start all over again having lost part of his memory that contains Molly in it.
I so liked Leo but have to admit I had every empathy for Molly as having a husband who puts himself in danger constantly due to his love of his work, well I really didn’t envy her and there is no wonder that their marriage had begun to break down. What I loved about this story was how Leo’s accident gives the pair a second chance.
Molly an Leo are without doubt opposites. Molly has been brought up never wanting for anything with a family who have more money than they know what to do with, whilst Leo knows what it is like to come from a broken family and not having much. There are so many things against these unlikely two, yet throughout, you are hoping and praying that they can put their differences aside and get back on track.
There are hardly any characters in this novel, with the author concentrating on Molly and Leo and boy do you get absorbed in their story. I read this book in two sittings as I had to know how things were going to end between the two and if they would get their happy ever after.
When I Lost You is all about second chances. It makes you realise that we should put more work into our relationship with our partners and to never take each other for granted. Another utterly compelling read by the author and one that will send your emotions into a tizzy.
