Book Review Love for Two Lifetimes

Title: Love for Two Lifetimes
Author: Martina Boone
Genre: Coming of Age / Young Adult

 Two generations, two great loves, one devastating lie . . . 

When Izzy unexpectedly loses her mother in a car accident, her world shatters. Their relationship has always been so close that Izzy can’t imagine life without her. Nor can she begin to understand when she finds a secret box of love letters that her mother wrote but never sent. The idea of her mother hiding such intense feelings for more than twenty years without so much as a hint makes Izzy question everything she thought she knew–including the identity of her father.

Following a trail of clues overseas, Izzy steps into a world of glamour and English royalty, one which years ago forced her mother to choose between her obligation to her musical gift and her lover’s obligations to his family, title, and estate. It’s a world of secrets and masquerades, of heartache and betrayal. And in the midst of this world, Izzy finds a young man who feels as broken as she does herself. The two are drawn to each other–only to find that their parents’ lies may present an insurmountable obstacle between them.

Thrown together on a coming of age journey of discovery that spans two lifetimes and takes them from a grand estate in the Cotswolds to a hospital bedside in India and ultimately to the Taj Mahal, Izzy and Malcolm try desperately not to fall in love. But some things are impossible…
And some loves are worth any sacrifice… 

Uplifting, funny, tragic, and unforgettably, luminously romantic, Love for Two Lifetimes is a tale of two generations of love, a lifetime of friendship, a history of sacrifice, and one last, heartbreaking and hopeful choice revealed in prose, texts, and love letters. Written for young adults and grown-up romantics, if you love the romance of the royal weddings or any story by Nicholas Sparks, Love for Two Lifetimes will have you turning pages late into the night.

“Heartwarming, lyrical, soulful, and with just the right amount of humor: this book sparkles with authentic, layered characters and beautiful, thoughtful prose.” — Jodi Meadows, NYT bestselling co-author of My Lady Jane and My Plain Jane


This is my first time read a book by Martina Boone, but I'll definitely check out other books by the author now. This was simply amazing.

When Izzy suddenly loses her mother in a car accident, everything she ever knew changes, and Izzy can't imagine a life without her mom. But then Izzy discovers a secret box of love letters her mother wrote but never sent, all of them written to a mysterious man overseas. Could this man be Izzy's father? Why did she never tell Izzy about her feelings for this man?

Izzy goes to search for this mystery man, and the search teaches her a lot more about her mother and her family history than she could've ever imagined. But the search also leads her to find love of her own, in faraway lands she never even expected to end up in.

This is such an emotional rollercoaster of a story. I needed tissues, I'll be honest. It's just so heartbreaking, the emotional turmoil poor Izzy goes through. And Malcolm, the love interest, has so much weighing on him as well, it really made me feel for him.

This is an amazing love story but keep the tissues close!
