A Blessing Or A Curse?
The Sight Of You by Holly Miller is a very beautiful contemporary novel about love. It is a tale that made me smile and that also made me cry. The love radiated from the pages and wrapped around me.
Love is not all hearts, roses and chocolates. Love demands so much more. Love is not self-serving. Love is sacrificial. It gives away no matter what the personal cost.
The characters are wonderfully drawn. There is a chemistry between the leading two which is palpable. It is their voices that tell the story as the chapters alternate between them. The reader becomes acquainted with both. We feel the love and we feel the pain.
Some gifts we are born with are both a blessing and a curse. The reader understands the tension within a character and we empathise with the choices made.
The whole tale is beautifully written. It is about a love so great that the reader cannot help but get caught up in it. My emotions were all over the place as I read. You definitely need tissues.
I think The Sight Of You would make a marvellous movie … any producers out there please take note… Sandra Bullock and Ryan Gosling would be perfect in the leading roles.
I want more, more, more from Holly Miller please.
I will leave you with a powerful quote:
“Love isn’t about the easy choices… it’s about hard graft and tough calls, the sacrifices you don’t actually want to make.
