    The Girl and her Ren

    This book was amazing. I've never cried over a book, but this one got me. I loved the development of the characters once Ribbon became of age, and how the author treated their relationship development delicately. Both books were wonderful.

    Heartbreaking

    Every time I read a book by Pepper Winters she manages to completely wreck me in ways that I didn’t realize were possible anymore. They’re never an easy read, but always 100% worth it.

    A beautifully heartbreaking story!

    When I finished reading The Boy and His Ribbon, I couldn't stop thinking about Ren and Della. Yes, I understand they are fictional characters but Pepper had done such an amazing job of writing their story that they felt as real to me as someone standing right next to me. Even after I moved on to the next book and the book after that, I couldn't get them out of my head with the questions of: how are these two people going to come back together? It is obvious they can't live without each other, but how are they going to find the peace and acceptance within themselves to transition from a sibling relationship to that of lovers? Pepper does an outstanding job of leading the reader through the struggles Ren goes through at trying to reconcile his feelings of love for Della with the endless memories he has of raising her from an infant. His sense of propriety and his steadfast promise to always keep her safe is at constant war with the overwhelming love and desire he has finally admitted to himself and to Della. I felt every emotion that Ren warred with. I found myself talking to him and telling him it would be okay to love her. But as I kept reading, Pepper continued to shatter my heart with everything that Ren battled: the fear that the outside world would not accept their relationship, the constant battle within himself that he was not good enough for Della. I felt it all. Now that Della is an adult, and Ren has come to terms with the fact that Della is no longer a child that he needs to take care of, their journey took on a whole new meaning. How would these two navigate their path forward as equals? The first thing they do is return to their beloved forest, and it was beautiful watching these two forge a new path for themselves. But all too soon, the real world call them back to Cherry River, the very place where they first realized their relationship had shifted. This book is not just a love story between Ren and Della. Yes, there is love and romance and the things that readers expect to see when two people are in love. But Pepper takes us on a different path in this book. She shows us the realities of life and the challenges and obstacles that people face every single day. Ren and Della have defied all the odds, a ten year old boy with an infant in tow managed to survive in the woods, managed to grow into adults and defy all the odds stacked against them. Surely they've earned the right to ride off into the sunset, happily ever after? I am not going to lie, I was 100% on board with them riding off into the sunset, but again, life doesn't work that way. And Pepper ripped my heart out with the path that Ren and Della had to journey down. I don't know how she managed to do it, but as heartbreaking as it was, it was also one of the most inspiring, beautiful journeys I've ever witnessed. Because as much as I wanted to stay in my bubble and think of this as only a love story, it was not that at all. It was a life story about two people whose love for each other transcends time and space. Romance comes and goes, lust flickers and smoulders, trials appear and test, life gets in the way and educates, pain can derail happiness, joy can delete sadness, togetherness is more than just a fairytale...it's a choice. A choice to love and cherish and honour and trust and adore. A choice to choose love, all the while knowing it has the power to break you. A choice, dear friends, to give someone your entire heart. But in the end, love is what life is about. And love is the purpose of everything. I'm pretty much ruined after reading Ren and Della's story. I thought I was obsessed at the end of book 1, now that the duet is complete, I know I will never forget this couple. They have cemented themselves permanently in my heart and soul. Pepper has always been one of my favorite authors with the diversity of her writing, but hands down, this duet, this couple are my absolute favorite. Sorry, Tess and Q, I still love you but Ren and Della grabbed my heart and won't let go.
