From the author of Maybe in Another Life—named a People Magazine pick and a "Best Book of the Summer" by Glamour and USA TODAY—comes a breathtaking new love story about a woman unexpectedly forced to choose between the husband she has long thought dead and the fiancé who has finally brought her back to life.
In her twenties, Emma Blair marries her high school sweetheart, Jesse. They build a life for themselves, far away from the expectations of their parents and the people of their hometown in Massachusetts. They travel the world together, living life to the fullest and seizing every opportunity for adventure.
On their first wedding anniversary, Jesse is on a helicopter over the Pacific when it goes missing. Just like that, Jesse is gone forever.
Emma quits her job and moves home in an effort to put her life back together. Years later, now in her thirties, Emma runs into an old friend, Sam, and finds herself falling in love again. When Emma and Sam get engaged, it feels like Emma’s second chance at happiness.
That is, until Jesse is found. He’s alive, and he’s been trying all these years to come home to her. With a husband and a fiancé, Emma has to now figure out who she is and what she wants, while trying to protect the ones she loves.
Who is her one true love? What does it mean to love truly?
Emma knows she has to listen to her heart. She’s just not sure what it’s saying.
Emma Blair was going to get as far away from Acton, Massachusetts as she could after High School. She was going to finally see the world and be free. Free from a place where her older sister feels more like an enemy and where her parent’s greatest wish is for her to run their family bookstore.
And a big part of that dream was being married to Jesse Lerner. He was the boy that she instantly fell in love with when she was seventeen and he was also the man who she grieved for when his helicopter went down without a trace.
Emma moves back to her hometown to try to put her shattered soul back together again. So when she reconnects with her old friend Sam Kemper, she soon discovers that it’s possible for her to fall in love all over again.
I think that perhaps everyone has a moment that splits their lives in two. When you look back on your own timeline, there’s a sharp spike somewhere along the way, some event that changed you, changed your life, more than the others.
Her second chance at happiness is rocked by the return of the man that she thought she lost. Now she has to choose between who she once was and who she has become – and then hope that her heart will survive.
I don’t think that true love means your only love.
One True Loves is nothing short of a heartbreaking masterpiece! From the very beginning, I could feel the tears already threatening to fall and by the end I was completely cried out. And you know what? I adored every second of it.
Yes, it’s about love and loss. But it’s also about finding out who you really are and being okay with that. It’s about growing in unexpected and painful ways and then finally being able to look back on how far you’ve come and smile.
This book will change the way that you define true love. I know that it did for me…
I am who I am because I loved you once.
