That particular date is a difficult day for Fallon as she has terrible memories of it
Reviewed in Canada on March 24, 2016
Fallon and Ben meet on November 9th and appear to have an immediate connection. Fallon is an aspiring actress and Ben is a writer. That particular date is a difficult day for Fallon as she has terrible memories of it. The trauma she has suffered has chipped away at her self-confidence until Ben comes into her life.
The whole premise of the book is that they meet up on the same date every year for the next five years without any other contact in between, which I personally found unbelievable. I feel like as a result of this that we didn't see much of a build up in their relationship. Fallon would just arrive to see Ben, and within hours was leaving again, despite their feelings or what was going on in their lives. I know this was the premise of the story, I just didn't enjoy it.
