‘Sometimes I think the white oak tree was listening that night last August. That it knows about the promises we made to each other up in our tree house. That it knows I kept only half of mine.’
‘Reaching behind my neck, I unclasp his necklace. I grip the pendant tightly. And then I let go.’
I actually crossed my fingers that that would be the end (because I was reading it on Riveted Lit’s Free Reads, I couldn’t see how much of the book was still left) because it would have been such an unexpected end. The couple ALWAYS ends up together, and it would have been realistic if they’d become so alienated from each other over the past year that there had been no way for them to fix things; particularly because there’s a scene where Declan is extremely verbally abusive towards Harper, and she slaps him. It’s very difficult to recover from something like that.
