True Love Story

Have you ever had your heart broken? I mean really broken? Broken in such a way that the heartbreak of it changes who you are at your core and changes the direction of your life?

“Love is enough. Love does conquer all. Love really does always protect, trust, hope, persevere… I’d even go so far as saying that love never fails. I finally believe that.”

True Love Story

I’ve just finished reading Willow Aster’s book True Love Story and it took me on such a journey.

Sparrow Fisher is transforming. No longer dressed up in antiquated clothes and ideals, she is finally trying on her freedom.
Before she moves to New York City, she meets Ian Sterling, a musician Sparrow has dreamed about since she first saw him. The attraction is instant, but their relationship isn’t so simple.
Over a five year span, Sparrow and Ian run into each other in unusual places. Each time, Sparrow has to decide if she can trust him, if he feels the same for her, and finally, if love is really enough.

This book made me laugh, made me cry, made me hold my breath and made me beg for a happily ever after. It stirred so many emotions in me, I often had that hollow feeling in my stomach and empty ache in my heart as it reminded me so much of my own true heart break. While the very ending is a little cheesy…. and I don’t want to tell you how it ends because it will ruin the true angst and beauty of the book, this really was a true love story for me.

I loved this book, I actually cried when it ended… I want to read more about Ian and Sparrow’s journey, I want to know what happens after the book ends.

It has received 5 star ratings on both Good Reads and and if you love a real love story that will stir all of your emotions and check all of the boxes for you then this is a book for you to read.

I’ve rated it as five stars on Good Reads too.
