Originally published in hardcover: Great Britain : Hodder & Stoughton, 2009.
Over twenty years, snapshots of an unlikely relationship are revealed on the same day--July 15th--of each year. Dex Mayhew and Em Morley face squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. And as the true meaning of this one crucial day is revealed, they must come to grips with the nature of love and life itself. Soon to be a major motion picture from Focus Features/ Random House Films.

Summary / Annotation
yeah, i read it.

As I was reading this book and had to stick the bookmark in to do other things... my time away from the book had me thinking of it as a film on pause, it was quite strange, as I usually want to separate films from their books immediately, and this book wasn't even a film yet! So I'm not surprised it will be made into a movie soon. (As I read I was picturing Kate Winslet and Jude Law- so wrong! I know! But it crept in my brain early on. Because in my brain it was a movie before it was a book.)
That said, it's a love story, and I read it! It's not my usual cup of tea, love stories, but I was intrigued. Perhaps because it was set over a long time span starting in the 80s, perhaps some of it reminded me of elements of my own past. I'm not sure. I did enjoy the book, it was a quick read, and of course I cried at the end. It really makes you think of how much a person's life can change in a year, or how much it doesn't change in a year. It makes you look at life and wonder if you're evolving enough as the clock keeps ticking.
