The book is about two friends, Alex and Rosie, that have known each other ever since they were little. Although Alex has to move away for his final year of school, Rosie and him still manage to cope. They go through everything together; experience everything that could possibly happen in one’s life. From unwanted pregnancies, divorces, deaths of a relative to unemployement they’ve always managed to survive and stay friends. Nonetheless, it takes them almost 50 years to finally get together …
Where rainbows end is not like every other book out there. While the story is pretty predictable (I really doubt that I gave something away in the previous paragraph) the way it is written is beautiful. If you’ve read my post The Power of E-Mail, you’ll know that I like written correspondance. The entire book is composed of e-mails, letters, text messages and notes passed in class and I simply love it.
I can really recommend this book if you are looking for a nice and not very demanding read. It is an easy story, yet really sweet and shows that in the end true love always wins.
