My Thoughts On The Read
I heart this book! I cannot rave enough about the story, its characters and their triumphs, and tribulations.
I completely got swept up in Ella, Erik and Jake’s portrayed emotions in the story and the shenanigans amongst them. The friendships formed were powerful as the story progressed. I loved Erik’s unwavering loyalty to Ella and Sam, and the hulkiness in his depiction. Yet, his portrayed physicality contrasted the inner gentleness of his character’s actions, warming this reader’s heart with his narrated protectiveness which emanated through the pages. Jake from the start is a head-turning character. You can almost feel the genuine niceness in his character that wraps itself around you, having the reader wanting to read more. His interest in Ella is heartfelt but challenging in the obstacles they face. Ella has her own secrets that are revealed. Her strength of character is constantly tested throughout the story by various challenges. Honeychurch family members are introduced in the story, paving the way for more instalments in the Chalk Hill series, that I cannot wait to read. Water Under The Bridge by author Lily Malone brings and leaves the warm and fuzzy feelings, long after the last page is turned, and it is a read I could gladly go back to in the years to come.
