    loved it

    This author does a great job of placing you in the story. She is great with imagery and words that take you to that time and place. Imagine living a life not knowing or feeling the emptiness of not having a father only to find something different when you mother passes. For Izzie an innocent find of letters her mother wrote but never mailed sends her on a quest to meet the man and find his truths. She had no idea what would happen when she met the illusive Ian. She wasn't prepared for Malcolm. Truths and lies come to the surface and when tragedy strikes it's time to lay it all out come what may. The complications of love and time and tradition collides and lives come unraveled and what was truth no longer has precedent over what's right. Awesome story, intense and emotional. This author does a wonderful job of piecing it all together and healing hearts at the same time. Yes it's a clean read but truly a page turner filled with tidbits that bring the country to life.

    Amazing story of heartache, loss, love and joy

    Love for Two Lifetimes by Martina Boone (5 stars) I don’t give 5 star reviews out very often; I want them to mean something. This book, for me, was beyond 5 stars and I’ll be re-reading it as a favorite go-to novel. The characters in this book are young, but wise beyond their years and so an older reader can glean as much wisdom from these characters’ insights as a YA reader. We’ve all lived through trials, grief, and loneliness. I’ve always found it difficult to put into words what I feel during those times, especially when the numbness of shock gives way to feeling again and one has to cope with those feelings. Ms. Boone describes with such eloquence the emotions that the characters are feeling, that I relate to them on a level that’s more personal and intimate because they are describing my feelings as I went through those emotional upheavals in my own life. Luckily, she is not only good at describing grief and heartache, but love in all its forms. This book is all about love. There is parental love, friendship love, romantic love and unconditional love. Her descriptions are so very real and relatable, they pull one into the world of her novel. There is humor interspersed and Ms. Boone has some very clever texts going back and forth between Izzy, her main character, and her best friend. There is wisdom and depth and it will take more than one reading to really process the insights she shares about life through her characters (this is actually true of her other books, as well). I love that on one of its many levels, this is a book about young people on the cusp of adulthood, finding out that their parents are human and that the ‘mistakes’ their parents made were made out of unconditional love for them. It is not a given that there will be an HEA in the end and if that would stop you from reading it, then let me assure you that the ending is all that is wonderful! I could go on and on. I’m sure as I read it a 2nd, 3rd and 4th time, I’ll feel that my writing in this review doesn’t do the book justice, but then I’m no Martina Boone ;-) *poor, **ok, ***good, ****very good, *****something special

    4.5 Stars!

    Love for Two Lifetimes can almost be defined as two love stories in one. One being a star-crossed love that paves the way for new love in a second generation. Full of lyrical prose, as well as book and music references, this story filled nearly all my senses. Angsty, but not overwrought, the story is replete with longing, crushing, and sacrificing heartbreaks. The more I read the more I wondered if there could possibly be any kind of satisfying happily ever after? I longed for it, but could not comprehend the plausibility. Fortunately, I wasn't left wondering. The story wrapped up nicely with a somewhat open ending shaped by the conversations between Izzy and her best friend Elli, as well as Izzy's own reclamations. Overall, a compelling YA/NA novel that will satisfy the both the young adult and discerning older adult romance reader.
