A lifetime of friendship begins the day brothers Ed and Allard save Sarah from drowning in an icy river near their rural New Hampshire home. Though their paths diverge through the years, the connection between the three endures until a heartbreaking tragedy in the remote mountains of Wyoming forces Sarah and Allard to confront the unthinkable. In their grief, they find themselves on separate journeys that test the enduring bonds of their relationship and time’s unremitting power to heal. Poignant and transformative, The World as We Know It is subtle and heartrending—a love story of friendship, nature, and the surprising twists that can alter our destinies forever.
This is the kind of book you read on a cold winter night. A night where you can settle in with a blanket, cup of cocoa and just immerse yourself in a good book.
Joseph creates such a vivid world. So vivid you can practically feel the ice, see the vast land, smell the crisp winter air. The characters are no different.
The characters are so well written that you love with them, feel their pain and heartaches. You watch them grow from young and watch them become the adults they are. You pull for them, cheer them on and cry when losses come. In the end you find yourself invested in his characters and their lives.
I guarantee if you give this book a chance, you'll enjoy it!
