Together – Julie Cohen

Synopsis:

Robbie and Emily have been together for decades. Now, their joints are creaking and their eyesight is failing – but their love for each other is as fresh and fierce as the day they first met. They have had children and grandchildren, lived full and happy and intimate lives.

But they have been keeping a secret since the day they met, when their lives changed forever. Over the years, the sacrifices and choices they made have sealed their fates together.

Did they do the right thing? Read their story, and you decide

Review:Together was a beautifully written love story told backwards. The language and flow were perfect. I couldn’t put it down. The cover was also beautiful!!

The story was split into different sections based on time period. Each one teaches us something knew in their story.

The story touches on a range of sensitive topics; Alzheimer’s, family relationships, alcoholism, divorce, adoption.

I’m giving this book 4 stars rather than 5 simply due to the ‘shock’ at the ending not siting well with me. I cannot say anymore without ruining it for other readers.

It was however a very thought provoking read and it will stay with me.
