Until there was you by G. Colgrove – Review by Jennifer Ramos
Until there was you by G. Colgrove
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Colgrove’s novel was such a beautiful touch to a coming-of-age love story. Until There Was You depicts the story of Regan and Jeremy and their particular lives bring them together unexpectedly and even though their lives are significantly different, they decide to carry on in a way only love can move. Centered around the urban area of Boston, Regan was born and raised as a “Southie” with a barely existent mother figure and her older brother, Shane. Basically raising themselves, Regan builds on a tough exterior to handle whatever hurt and pain life has brought to her thus far. Things start to change the evening after her high school graduation.
Along comes Jeremy, an up and coming in the real estate industry and a fresh face from Harvard Grad, he starts lining up and preparing to hopefully one day take over his father’s company. Even though he calls Los Angeles home, he has temporarily been placed in Boston to settle some projects to help better build the community. Things start changing when he ends up having a work lunch at the diner Regan works at.
The love story between Regan and Jeremy has its challenges along the way but the one thing that remains strong but it is tested left and right. They must learn on their own terms if their love is strong enough to keep each other together.
