When Winter's boyfriend is killed in a plane crash in the Alaskan wilderness, she's robbed of the future she'd only just allowed herself to believe might be hers. Winter and Spencer had been destined for one another. And after his death, Spencer's presence continues to haunt her.
But when her next-door neighbor becomes an unlikely friend, Winter begins to accept all that she can't change. Can she open herself to a new future . . . and a possible new love?
Have you ever been in love with someone but never told them how you feel? Have you ever wanted to make that person more then a friend, but were too afraid to speak up? Winter has always loved Spencer, ever since they were little kids. They grew up in the same Alaskan town and throughout their childhood their feelings for one another have continued to blossom. Then it finally happens, Spencer kisses Winter and as easy as slipping on a glove, they're a couple. But their happiness is short lived when Spencer is tragically killed in a plane crash.
After she loses Spencer, Winter feels depressed and alone. She tries to go on with her life, but walking around with a broken heart is not the easiest thing to do. By recalling all the good memories she and Spencer shared over the years, Winter is slowly able to come to terms with his death. And as more time passes, there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel, a possible new love.
I really liked this book because it wasn't a conventional love story. Instead of being typical boy meets girl, they fall in love etc, we see girl loves boy then girl loses boy. Through flashbacks at the start of each chapter, its easy to see just why Winter loved Spencer so much. Dealing with death is never easy, and Winter did the best she could. Once her heart is healed she realizes that it is possible to love again, and that I think is a beautiful message! FOUR STARS!
