Overall Grade: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Rebecca Yarros’s The Things We Leave Unfinished is a sweeping tale, a story written within a story. One of the stories is a modern-day romance, a bit enemies to lovers or hate to love between a woman who is allowing her grandmother’s story to be completed and published posthumously. Wrapped in this delicious, emotional story is a story from the past, namely Georgia’s grandmother’s story. As I was reading this book, I got tinges of Nicholas Sparks’s The Notebook with the move from the present to past. There is so much beauty in this story as one woman must come to terms with her own feelings of abandonment and letting go of her grandmother’s story, while the other must deal with a story that doesn’t have the ultimate happy ending, but there is still beauty in the story.
Yarros has written such compelling characters in the form of Georgia and Noah. The way in which they challenge each other, pushing the other to be a better version of themselves while helping Georgia to heal from past hurts. Couple that with the compelling story of Jameson and Scarlett, and this story cannot be put down.
If you’re like me, and you love stories from bygone eras and a little hate to love mixed in, then you should run and grab Rebecca Yarros’s The Things We Leave Unfinished. It will definitely steal your heart.
In love and romance,
