Love The One You're With

How do you know if you’ve found the one? Can you really love the one you’re with when you can’t forget the one who got away?

Funny how these kind of mush prompts me to pick up a book and head straight to the cashier. I like reading about dramas, people that should be together who aren't together. Somehow it falls into that, but not really. It is about a newly married wedding photographer who lives in New York City. She is quite happy and deeply in love with her husband who is a lawyer at a big firm in New York. But one fateful afternoon, Ellen runs into Leo for the the first time in 8 years. Leo was her first love, the one who left her heartbroken without explanation but still the one she could never forget.

Their meeting sparked her long ago emotions and Ellen starts questioning whether the life she's living is the one she's meant to live. It's a story about a woman who isn't quite sure of what she wants or of who she is. A lot of people may not have like it because of the author's departure to her usual writing style, I think it is still a good read. A complex story of feelings, grappling with love, lust, duty and honor.
