APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Like a perfect summer’s day, Jill Mansell’s heartwarming novel will lift your spirits. The bestselling British author hooks us again with charming, witty characters and funny situations that made us smile big. On her 25th birthday, Lily receives the final letter from her adoring mother, who died far too early. The people who matter most in Lily’s life are her adoptive parents, her former babysitter Patsy and Patsy’s little brother, Dan, a dashing pilot and womaniser—and we loved spending time with them all, getting glimpses into their private lives and feelings. You and Me, Always is the kind of book that whisks you away and fills your heart.
The charming village of Stanton Langley in England's Cotswolds serves as both character and setting in Mansell's (The One You Really Want) latest multigenerational romance. Lily's dying mother wrote her letters, each one to be opened on her birthday. Now that Lily's turning 25, she reaches the final letter. She learns the name of her mother's real love and writes to him with hopes of a meeting. Lily's biological father was never in the picture, and the recently widowed Coral, who runs the architectural salvage where Lily works, raised Lily after her mother died. Pilot Dan, Lily's childhood friend and confidant, secretly loves her, and for years Lily has concealed her feelings for him as well. Their witty dialogue sizzles, and the plot weaves naturally among characters, who are all strongly developed with solid backstories. An actor hiding from the paparazzi in a neighbor's house and the antics of Coral's Internet dating complete this captivating read.
