Beyond The Sea And The Sky
In Five Years by Rebecca Serle is the most beautiful contemporary novel celebrating friendship and love. It made me smile and it made me cry as the love radiated from its pages.
We do not always realise what we have until it is gone. Love creeps us on us over the years before overwhelming us. We know we are part of a great love because of the pain in parting.
Rebecca Serle celebrates a best buddy friendship in the novel – two girls meet aged seven, they grow up together and share the highs and lows, the ups and downs, the loves and losses in life. They appear to be complete opposites but their personalities complement each other as they support each other through life. Theirs is a beautiful friendship that will warm the reader’s heart.
We make our plans. We do everything on our lists but still life does not pan out the way we thought it would.
As we travel through life there will be losses that devastate. We will need to find a way through the grief in order to live again.
In Five Years was one of the most beautiful books that I have ever read. Love and friendship radiated from its pages. It made me cry but it left me feeling hopeful as I had witnessed a great love unfolding. It would make a fabulous film. Simply put – this is a beautiful novel.
