Summary

Poring over a dusty hatbox of photographs in her grandmother's closet, Emily Prentice is shocked to discover her father was married to his high school sweetheart before meeting her mother.
In the summer of 1968, Jack and Libbie fall in love under the spell of their small town, untouched by the chaos of the late sixties. Though Libbie's well-to-do parents disapprove of Jack's humble family and his aspiration to become a mechanic, she marries Jack a year after they graduate high school. But soon their happiness crumbles as Libbie's mental state unravels and she is drawn to alcohol and drugs. Despite his efforts to help her, Jack loses the woman he loves and is forced to move on with his life.
Now that Emily's mother has passed away, Jack is alone again, and Emily grows obsessed with the beautiful woman who had given her father such joy. Determined to find Libbie, Emily pieces together the couple's fragmented past. But is it too late for happy endings?

kept me hooked

As I listened, I just couldn't figure out how the story was going to loopback to the synopsis that I had read. I found myself listening even when I had only a few minutes, because I was so eager to hear how the story ended.

Sweet and heartwarming

Everyone has a story of a lost love, but not everyone has a story like this one. The story of Jack and Libbey grabbed my attention from the start and just never let go. It's a story that speaks to me personally. I found my lost love and I have a child with mental illness. This story gives a glimpse of what it's like to love someone who's struggling with their own mind. overall, I say this is a must read
