Elsie Porter is an average twentysomething and yet what happens to her is anything but ordinary. On a rainy New Year’s Day, she heads out to pick up a pizza for one. She isn’t expecting to see anyone else in the shop, much less the adorable and charming Ben Ross. Their chemistry is instant and electric. Ben cannot even wait twenty-four hours before asking to see her again. Within weeks, the two are head over heels in love. By May, they’ve eloped.
Only nine days later, Ben is out riding his bike when he is hit by a truck and killed on impact. Elsie hears the sirens outside her apartment, but by the time she gets downstairs, he has already been whisked off to the emergency room. At the hospital, she must face Susan, the mother-in-law she has never met and who doesn’t even know Elsie exists.
Interweaving Elsie and Ben’s charmed romance with Elsie and Susan’s healing process, Forever, Interrupted will remind you that there’s more than one way to find a happy ending.
I am forever a Taylor Jenkins Reid fan. It’s officially inevitable for me.
My favorite thing about TJR is her ability to hit you right when you don’t expect it. I’m not a “feeler”. I don’t feel a lot of things. But her books are so impactful. They hit me deep forever leaving prints on my feelers.
Not only is Forever, Interrupted emotional and deep I found it to be very uplifting and powerful at the same time. Elsie’s soul redemption was so meaningful that it was overwhelming for me. Being there with her while she found her way was an unexplainable feeling for me.
This one may not be for every one. I can already see how it might not be. But for me it was full of warmth and forgiveness and second chances and for some reason my soul needed that right now.
