Pictures of You is the kind of book that stays with you for a long time. It’s many layers touched me so deeply and on so many levels. It is a beautiful story that springs out of misfortune of two women trying to get away from their lives. The story covered me like a hand-made quilt in a warm bed on a rainy morning.
I stayed up reading this beautiful novel late into the night. I felt like so much of Caroline Leavitt’s story was written directly to the secrets of my heart. The love, loss, betrayal, and eventual healing were magical. Isabelle, Charlie, and Sam captured my attention and compassion so completely that I caught myself holding my breath several times throughout the book (and not just when Sam was at his asthmatic worst).
This is a story that will stay with me; one that I will read again and again. I believe that Pictures of You is the type of novel that will continue to reveal itself to me for a long time.
