Us, in Pieces (2019) by Tasha Cotter
What happens if you fall in love with your college best friend, never tell them and then don’t have any contact for the best part of ten years?
Introducing Adin who met and fell in love with his best friend Lilly whilst they were at college. However, Lilly never returned to Ohio University after the first year. Not that this stopped Adin thinking about her, wondering where she was, what she was doing etc. A chance conversation with another college friend leads Adin to find out that Lilly is in the middle of getting divorced. Insist makes him call her parents home in Beaufort and leads to their first meeting in almost ten years. It doesn’t go well. What follows is a series of emails between them, their friends and family.
With the opportunity to see how things unfold from both Adin and Lilly’s perspectives. Flashbacks to their time in college and the ‘what could have been’ moments. The story starts slowly, however, I was soon swept up in the rollercoaster of their re-acquaintance – devoured in just one day.
