Love My Way by Kate Sterritt: Go into it blind! Review and Ultimate Reading Challenge

” I don’t know who I am anymore” ” I’m going to help you find out”

Synopsis

Even without seeing her face, I know that the woman standing at the water’s edge is desperately sad. Her back is to me and her shoulders are slumped, perhaps heavy with regret. It kills me to know I am partly to blame, and for that reason alone, it’s impossible to look at her. Leaning against the rough trunk of the tree, I close my eyes. My life will forever begin and end with her, and I’m unable to witness her heart breaking.

Standing still is no longer an option, so I begin to pace. Is she still waiting for him or has he already left? Fear pools in my veins at the uncertainty. Above all else, I want her to be happy. If this is too hard, I’ll have to walk away again. I let out a long breath, frustrated by the whole situation.

Emerson Hart is the love of my life. Unfortunately, I’m not the only love of hers. And therein lies the problem.

Kate seriously how do you want us to review spoiler free with such a blurb? You don’t make it easy for reviewes but neither did you for your readers!

Here is the deal: I have so much to say about the characters, the story , the plot but I’ll willingly barely skim some.parts as I want you to experience it like I did: going blind!

But how am I to let you know if this book is for you or not?

Let me tell you a little story here.
I bought this book at RARE London. I had never read anything written by Kate ( but had drooled on the cover). In the queue my friend Jennifer told me that “I had to read Love My Way!!”. She was pretty insistant.
So I went to Kate’s table and told her that “I had never read anything by her but my friend made me.do it. So could she sell me the book and sign it pretty please, with a cherry on top?”
Kate has been genuinely charming and sweet telling me to read with an open mind.

Well I took her advice to heart and I really had to hold on tight to my trust in Jennifer and Kate because this book hit a huge trigger of mine.
But…
It was bloody brilliant!!!

Emerson is someone you will instantly relate to. She is sweet and strong. A chance encounter at an art market will catapult her life on a whole new trajectory.
I’m a firm.believer in life altering encounters. Sometimes words by someone passing by, a look, a quote can resonate deep in our soul and change our path.
Emerson will find her calling and will lose it for years. She will experience perfect hapiness to be thrown into a pit of sadness. Going through life drifting through fog. Not really living.
And I was sad with her.
Then anothet encounter will have her live again. Her emotions were in turmoil and so was I. I was…conflicted like Emerson. Then angry. Very angry and ready to stop reading. And…BAM!
Never saw it coming!

It’s a character driven story with a stunning plot. Kate Sterrit took a huge risk with this one.
When I told her I nearly DNF (because you bet that I reached for her as soon as I finished!) she told me that she knew the risks but she had to write the story “her way”.

So go into this story “my way”: blind and trusting.

PS: The good news is that Kate Sterritt is a new to me author so this is my book for March #UltimateReadingChallenge!

Have you read this book? Or any book written by Kate Sterritt?

Thanks for reading and happy Wednesday!
