As a young child Eponine never knew kindness, except once from her family's kitchen slave, Cosette. When at sixteen the girls' paths cross again and their circumstances are reversed, Eponine must decide what that friendship is worth, even though they've both fallen for the same boy. In the end, Eponine will sacrifice everything to keep true love alive.
" A little in love is one of the most beautiful books I have had the pleasure of reading. Susan Fletcher is a master with words."
A little in love is an alluring, haunting read which I couldn't put down. Eponine's story was so full of sadness, heartbreak and sorrow but also full of hopes, dreams and untimely love!
Eponine's story is of one girl who doesn't want to be the person her surname dictates she be. She has hopes and dreams and goodness in her heart. She tries so hard to be kind and good and seeing her struggle written in some of the most beautiful prose I have had the pleasure of reading was breathtaking.
Susan Fletcher's A little in love is among one of my favorite reads of the year and I know it's a book that will stay with me for a long time, for as long as the stars shine bright!
Note: I have never read Les Miserables , a book fail in my opinion
Note: A little in love has one of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen!
Some of my favorite quotes from A little in love:
"Did they part brambles with their hands? Lift their skirts as they climbed over stiles? That's how I 've always imagined it. They were always beautiful. Even in damp fields I reckon they shone as brightly as the stars. Some people have that in them: a glow, a sort of magic. They're just different from the rest of us."
"We looked at each other and smiled. It was like we'd both given something the other person needed- a little bit of nourishment. Mine for her body, and hers for my soul."
"All I wanted was to believe in better just a bit. A little light and love and hope."
"Sometimes words ban be the most hurtful thing of all."
"... I think there is beauty in most things if you look for it, don't you?"
