Andrea Louviere is seven years old the first time he appears. While she’s alone in her bedroom, practicing her beloved cello, the light shivers and a crack forms in the wall. Through the crack, she sees a candle, a window, a desk—and a boy. Though no sound travels through the wall, the boy clearly sees Andrea, too. And then, just as quickly as it opened, the crack closes, and he vanishes.
Over the years, summoning the bright, magnetic boy becomes something of an obsession for Andrea. Then, on her seventeenth birthday, she receives a three-hundred-year-old love letter from Isaac Newton. Andrea knows that Isaac will change the world with his groundbreaking discoveries; the letter tells Andrea that she will change him.
As Isaac’s letters intensify in passion and intimacy, Andrea grows determined to follow his clues to their shared destiny—despite a burgeoning romance in the present. Only when she discovers the way into Isaac’s time does Andrea realize that she faces a heartbreaking decision: between what was . . . and what might be.
I enjoyed Love and Gravity but there felt like there was a lack of focus and maturity in this book. The author created several points that didn’t feel finished or resolved which left me feeling as if the author may have been distracted or simply forgot about it as she moved on to other parts of the story.
I know that Andrea is a dreamer and a talent latent inspiration but her mind just felt a little too young. Even though we meet her while shes young I think I was expecting a more “worldly” feel to her.
Andrea was a little too up in the clouds and emotionally dead-ended because she got caught up in the day dreamer stage but doesn’t really feel like she pulls herself out of it.
I wasn’t sure if this was done on purpose or not but it was distracting for me because it felt as if she wasn’t fully developed or well rounded as a personality.
Still it was sweet and interesting as a longing type of love story.
