Until September – Chris Scully


“What was he thinking to put so much pain, so much fear on his face? And something else. Something that looked suspiciously like longing.”


In a word: Read the thing. I have so much love for this book and the characters in it. The writing is beautiful, the emotions are real, and the characters are interesting and easy to get attached to. It takes place in Canada and one of the characters is First Nations Cree, and that’s an important detail about his character and background¬†and it’s done well. It’s a slow burn romance with mutual pining with adorable child characters and domesticity and laughs and cries and it’s awesome. Go read it. I don’t have all the words to adequately describe how good this book is. Just go read it.
