My review of Anna: One Love; Two Stories
Oh my heart! This book, this beautiful book, it's just a stunning story about love, about meeting your soulmate and of how the past both affects and helps to shape your future. I loved it. I loved everything about this book, and the great news is that there is more to come, as this is just one half of the story!
We meet Anna as a little girl, who through difficult circumstances finds herself in care and having to strive through the world alone, using her uniqueness, tenacity and likeable nature to progress and get where she needs to be in life. The fact that we meet her as a little girl and then follow her journey to becoming a young woman is a pure delight. By the end of the book I knew this woman, she felt like a friend to me, as I had been there from the very beginning
This is a beautiful love story about how the past does affect you and of how it shapes your character, your beliefs and your perceived destiny. Anna meets Theo, and their meeting is just delightful. I kept re reading this scene as it was just so beautiful. On paper they are complete opposites, from different worlds. But, two things bind them together, their unconditional love for one another, and their painful pasts. We know Anne's story, but not Theo 's (yet). We only know what Theo tells Anna, as this is her story. And this is what makes this story so unique, breathtaking and heart-breaking at the same time.
This is a story about hidden secrets, about childhood and of how our childhood makes us into the adults we are today. It's a story about love and about 'the one.' That one person who understands us, who will always be there for us no matter what. Theo and Anna share this type of love, this bond, but it is their difficult pasts that could put an end to everything.
I loved Anna, a quirky child who grows up into a quirky and likeable woman. I loved Theo, and I am sure that I am going to fall even more in love with him when I get to read his side of the story, in Theo.
This is one breathtaking romantic read. A love story with so much depth and heart. I can't praise it highly enough. All the stars.
