You and Me: 10/01/15
You and Me by Susan Verde is the story of best friends and all the ways they could have missed meeting each other. For anyone in a long term relationship — whether a friendship or a romantic one, the what-ifs are big thing.
For my husband and me, the what ifs include one of us choosing a different college. Or one of us could have decided to stay through to the end of the initial presentation at orientation. Or I could have chosen a different boyfriend (I had a couple other suitors). Etc. etc.
The story plays out without explanation, looking at first glance as if the worst thing has happened — the friends have missed their meeting and the train is pulling away from the station with one on board and one still running to the train. But it's not like that. It's the story of new opportunities arising from missed connections.
