Sigh... there is so much about Eight Perfect Hours by Lia Louis that I connected with. From Noelle's relationship with her mother to the way, she felt emotionally in so many situations. It was a beautiful real read and a somber look into growing both as a person and in thought processes. I highlighted so much while reading I had to stop and write a few quotes down as well.
"That’s the thing about the middle of the night and its loneliness and bad memories. It makes you clamor for comfort and safety."
I'm not sure why this book resonated so much with me, I just know that it did. The love affair aside, it's a fantastic book. I will be excited to read more from Lia Louis.
From the Cover...
On a snowy evening in March, thirty-something Noelle Butterby is on her way back from an event at her old college when disaster strikes. With a blizzard closing off roads, she finds herself stranded, alone in her car, without food, drink, or a working charger for her phone.
All seems lost until Sam Attwood, a handsome American stranger also trapped in a nearby car, knocks on her window and offers assistance. What follows is eight perfect hours together, until morning arrives and the roads finally clear. The two strangers part, positive they’ll never see each other again but fate, it seems, has a different plan. As the two keep serendipitously bumping into one another, they begin to realize that perhaps there truly is no such thing as coincidence.
With plenty of charming twists and turns and Lia Louis’s “bold, standout voice” (Gillian McAllister, author of The Good Sister), Eight Perfect Hours is a gorgeously crafted novel that will make you believe in the power of fate.
