He was my best friend, my best not-really-big-brother, and my best protector.
He was my best everything.
He was mine.
Coming home is hard for Lane. Hard because Harry, her beloved uncle, has died suddenly, but also because of him. Kale.
Kale Hunt has been her best friend since childhood. But it was never that simple. He was Lane’s reason for leaving home and moving to New York. Seeing him with someone else, in love with someone else, shouldn’t have hurt. But it did. It really, really did. So she upped sticks and left, started a new life and cut herself off from her past.
But now she’s back, and all the feelings are right there. As if she had never left.
Emotions are running high for everyone, and tragedy has a funny way of bringing people together. But is Lane reading the signs right? Are they still just friends, or is there something more?
Until Harry is probably L.A. Casey’s best work to date. I feel this is definitely her most mature work, and proof that she truly is a talented writer. Completely different from her Slater Brother series, and simply better than Frozen, Until Harry hits you right in the heart. All the feels that this story brings with it, I loved it.
I admit I didn’t read the synopsis before buying, and reading Until Harry. Just that cover alone made me one click. Still I was warned that it was a rather emotional story, though not quite prepared in what way.
Lane, an unhappy girl, who thought she ran away from the pain by moving to New York. Though being away from the people she loves turns out not to be the best solution. Now she’s back, her uncle died, and she has to face all the people she left behind, including Kale.
I loved how the story switched from present to past, that we got to see all that happened between Lane, and Kale. They pretty much know each other from birth, and while to us it’s clear these two belong together, their stories runs quite differently.
There was one part near the end that really hit close to home, and if I wasn’t reading in public tears would have shed. While the setup of the story is quite sad, you never give up hope, and it really is a tale of second chances for family, friends, and love.
