My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a truly special love story. It could have been full of cliches focusing as it does on a man with amnesia who has no memory of his partner.
But, in the hands of another debut author, this romance turns into something more. It’s about choices and connections, about trust and life experiences.
It’s also, at the heart of it, about falling in love all over again with someone who’s never stopped loving you but is afraid to rely on those feelings remaining.
I loved both Olivier and Auriel. Each had vulnerabilities which gives the book its fragile title. Their previously solid relationship had been stretched thin after the accident and coma as each one tried to deal with the two year memory loss.
I was so very glad that Olivier didn’t get his memories back, there was no magic cure, they both put in the effort to choose to be in love and remain in love.
This is an impressive debut from Louisa and I look forward to more work from her.
