ABOUT THIS BOOK
Two people. One love story. A million possibilities.
Ivy and Abe were inseparable as children until an accident tore them apart. Several decades later, when both are in their seventies, a chance encounter reunites them. But time is not on their side.
What if they'd met in a different time and place?
In another life, Ivy and Abe meet in their forties, when both are married already. Unable to resist the attraction between them, they embark on a passionate affair.
In yet another, they marry young, with a bright future ahead of them - only for a dark shadow to threaten their happiness.
Throughout various incarnations of their lives, they come together and go their separate ways, fall in and out of love, make or break promises.
In every universe, Ivy and Abe are meant to meet. But are they meant to be?
Beautiful. Powerful. Stunning. Superb. These are all words that I would use to describe IVY & ABE by Elizabeth Enfield and I still don't feel that they do this story justice. Ivy and Abe's story moved me in ways that I have never been moved before and showed the power of love and timing to perfection.
This is the story of one love story: Ivy and Abe. Their love is that magical kind of love, that once in a lifetime kind of love that takes your breath away when you read it. But what would happen if Ivy and Abe met at different times of their lives when they are different people in different circumstances - would their deep connection be enough to overcome wrong timing and obstacles that would block their path in these alternate realities? Can love overcome everything?
IVY & ABE by Elizabeth Enfield makes you look at love and life in a new way and I could not put it down. I fell in love with Ivy and Abe myself and invested so much in them as a couple that I laughed and cried alongside each of their possible love stories. The writing in this book is simply stunning and the ebbs and flows of life, loss, and heartbreak are portrayed expertly and in such a way that it really hits home to the reader. There are drama and adventure, grief and desperation, hope and inspiration throughout this magnificent story and at the centre of it all will always be Ivy and Abe, just the way it should be.
IVY & ABE by Elizabeth is destined to become a huge success and in my opinion, would make a perfect fit for the silver screen. So waste no time and buy your copy now!
