Natalie Cleary must risk her future and leap blindly into a vast unknown for the chance to build a new world with the boy she loves.
Natalie’s last summer in her small Kentucky hometown is off to a magical start... until she starts seeing the “wrong things.” They’re just momentary glimpses at first—her front door is red instead of its usual green, there’s a pre-school where the garden store should be. But then her whole town disappears for hours, fading away into rolling hills and grazing buffalo, and Nat knows something isn’t right.
That’s when she gets a visit from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls “Grandmother,” who tells her: “You have three months to save him.” The next night, under the stadium lights of the high school football field, she meets a beautiful boy named Beau, and it’s as if time just stops and nothing exists. Nothing, except Natalie and Beau.
Emily Henry’s stunning debut novel is Friday Night Lights meets The Time Traveler’s Wife, and perfectly captures those bittersweet months after high school, when we dream not only of the future, but of all the roads and paths we’ve left untaken. (Goodreads)
I was super excited to read The Love That Split the World, especially when I found out that it was a time-travel story. I've been reading a lot of these types of stories lately, and I love how each of them have been so very different from each other. The Love That Split the World was no exception!
I really liked the characters in the story, especially the main character, Natalie. It was interesting to follow her through the story as she tried to figure out what was going on in her world, as well as who she was exactly. There are a lot of great secondary characters in the story as well. Natalie has some really awesome family members, and some great friends also. Oh, and there's also a boy in the story that you will love to swoon over as well.
I loved that the storyline for the book felt very unique and different from the other novels I've read. It had a very magical feel to it that none of the other time-travel novels I've read have not had in them. The story was very captivating, as well as mysterious, it definitely kept me guessing a few times, and I was holding my breath throughout, waiting to see what was going to happen next.
Overall; I found The Love That Split the World to be a very enjoyable read, with a unique storyline, likeable characters, and the cover is stunning as well. I'll definitely be checking out more books by Emily Henry in the future. Time-Travel fans, please add this book to your TBR, and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did!
