#IRememberAddie & I am very sad after reading this beautiful book.
In 1714, Addie LaRue pleaded to the shadows of the woods for a life of freedom. The darkness complied, and they struck a deal; she would remain young and healthy forever, but the cost was that no one would ever remember her. For three hundred years, Addie goes about the world alone and forgotten, desperate to leave a mark but determined to not give herself up to the darkness, until one day she meets Henry, a bookstore worker, and he says the words she has yearned to hear: “I Remember You.”
Fantastical, romantic and heartbreaking, I was left speechless and sobbing by the last chapters. The writing is lyrical, the stories unforgettable, with major themes on the fear of being alone and a hunger to leave your mark. Definitely an emotional read, but worth the tears. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz
