He Loves Her Always

I found genuine enjoyment in this book, whether due to my unabashed romantic tendencies or the engaging writing style. The exploration of the timeless Romeo & Juliet narrative takes a captivating twist as it delves into the profound question of how deeply one can love when confronted with the limitations of time. This unique approach, inspired by the author’s real-life circumstances, adds a personal and touching dimension to the story, fostering a stronger connection for readers.

The tale unfolds in a charming Alaskan town amidst winter’s embrace, introducing our main character, Helene, as she stumbles upon a woodsy, bustling pub adorned with mounted moose heads, lumberjacks, and welcoming locals. This cozy setting immediately establishes a comforting ambiance that persists throughout the narrative, despite the looming threat of death and despair.

While the book may not boast revolutionary concepts, it offers a straightforward yet endearing romance that refrains from reinventing the wheel. The sweetness and wholesomeness of the story, coupled with its cute and almost cheesy vibes, contribute to its undeniable charm. The adorable pairing of Helene and Sebastien, their seamless complementarity, and the consistent joy evoked in every shared scene had me smiling from start to finish.

As someone who endured fifteen weeks of Shakespearean studies in college, this story served as a delightful departure from the structured norm, infusing a sense of fun into the familiar narrative. The low-key world tour embarked upon by Helene and Sebastien added an exciting international flavor to the plot, making it a joy for enthusiasts of globally set books.

The prose, refreshingly devoid of pretentiousness, maintains a lovely and accessible quality that enhances the overall reading experience. In essence, while not groundbreaking, this book offers a heartwarming escape into a world of love, warmth, and adventure—a sweet and delightful read that leaves a lasting impression.
