Emotionally and psychologically rich, Forever and One Day by Jacqueline Simon Gunn is a gripping romance that explores the themes of betrayal, love, and redemption. It has been seventeen years since Olivia Watson discovered the betrayal that tore at her heart — her high school sweetheart and fiancé having sex with her best friend. That was seventeen years ago and she had made the decision not to confront that part of her life, completely disconnecting from anything and anyone that could remind her of Justin and her heartbreak. She now receives an invitation to her twenty-year high school reunion and she musters the courage to go. But when she meets Justin at the gathering, both of them feel that irresistible connection. Somewhere buried in their hearts is a longing for each other, but can they still find space for love when both of them are currently involved with other partners?
Jacqueline Simon Gunn is a great storyteller who leads the reader straight into the heart of the conflict and gets them interested in the protagonist. The story begins with Olivia contemplating whether she should accept the invitation or not, and the background story comes out vividly through the masterly use of dialogues. The writing is filled with deep emotional insights. The conflict is strong enough to keep the reader interested in the story, but it is the way the plot is developed that will surprise readers. I wanted to see how this story ended and the author did not disappoint. The reader will enjoy compelling lines, some soothing and though-provoking such as, “Between the empty spaces is a place called forever.” Forever and One Day is a captivating story, a romance with very unique angles that will delight readers. I couldn’t stop reading it.
