My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I decided to take this novel with me on my travel to NZ and I am happy I did.
The story of Jane and Jackson unfolds by going back and forth between the present and the past. This narrative got me instantly immersed in the story. The author reveals Jane and Jacksons’ love history in a way that the reader gets a good sense of who the characters are and why they act the way they do. They felt real to me as if they were real people.
The multiple story perspective which the author used, contributed to the depth and the dynamic of the story. I enjoyed this perspective especially in the moments when Jane and Jackson were together as it gave rise to a whole new dimension of emotion, which could be intense.
I was swept away on many levels by Mylissa’s story. The Songs of You and Me is an original piece of writing. I loved how each chapter refers to a song that fits with its mood.
I think Mylissa did a great job on writing her first novel. I definetly recommend it.
