The Map That Leads to You
A romantic, vivid novel that takes place in the tender time of a young woman’s life: Heather has graduated from college and is traveling around Europe with her two best friends. She’s left school responsibility behind and adult responsibility is looming, but this is her one, one last summer to be free. Heather doesn’t expect to even meet Jack, let alone fall in love with him. Jack is an enigmatic Vermonter a few years older than she is, who is following his grandfather’s journal to various cities around Europe. But in the same way that forces are bringing Jack and Heather together, life and duty are pushing them apart. And Jack has a secret that is going to change absolutely everything. Goodreads Synopsis
I couldn’t have picked a better time for this book to have been sent my way. A few weeks after it was delivered, I was heading off to Europe with my family for an Italian adventure. While only a small section of the book takes place in Italy, it is still a story about traveling across Europe by train (something I did a lot of) and the people you encounter.
As far as a coming of age, new adult (college grad) story it doesn’t get much better than this. The descriptions of the places made it feel like you were traveling right alongside of Jack and Heather. The friendships made were so real and meaningful.
The Map That Leads to You is a book endorsed by Nicholas Sparks, and so right off the bat you know its going to be a tear jerker of a love story.
I highly recommend The Map That Leads to You to all lovers of a good love story.
