A bond that is forged in an instant
and cherished for a decade.
A bond that neither time nor distance
A bond that will last forever.

When seventeen-year-old Rune
Kristiansen returns from his native Norway to the sleepy town of Blossom Grove,
Georgia, where he befriended Poppy Litchfield as a child, he has just one thing
on his mind. Why did the girl who was one half of his soul, who promised to
wait faithfully for his return, cut him off without a word of explanation?
Rune’s heart was broken two years ago
when Poppy fell silent. When he discovers the truth, he finds that the greatest
heartache is yet to come.

father and older sister and a multitude of rescue animals. As soon as she
could, Tillie left her rural roots for the bright lights of the big city.
After graduating from Newcastle University with a
BA Hons in Religious Studies, Tillie followed her Professional Rugby player
husband around the world for a decade, becoming a teacher in between and
thoroughly enjoyed teaching High School students Social Studies before putting
pen to paper, and finishing her first novel.
Tillie has now settled in Austin, Texas, where she
is finally able to sit down and write, throwing herself into fantasy worlds and
the fabulous minds of her characters.
Tillie is both an independent and traditionally
published author, and writes many genres including: Contemporary Romance, Dark
Romance, Young Adult and New Adult novels.

Never have I read a more heartfelt story. The depth of love these two young people have for one another is what everyone searches for their entire life. Few people honestly find their soulmate, so if you have, hold on tightly! Love them fiercely, love them with no regrets, love them when they can't love themselves. That is what I can say I walked away with after reading this book. It is life changing. It will open your eyes to more than you can imagine. Never take a day, an hour or a minute for granted. Tomorrow is not promised to us, so when you live, live for the here and now.
Poppy was 5 when she meet her best friend and Viking, Rune. It was also when she met her soulmate. They have been through thick and thin and in that time have shared a few kisses along the way. But when life gives you a curve ball, and things change, can a love so young, so pure survive? Can Poppy get her thousand boy kisses? Can she save her Rune? Can Rune survive life without half his heart?
I am not kidding when I say EVERYONE should read this story. I laughed, I cried (a lot, seriously get your tissues ready) but most of all, I would like to think that I grew from reading this book. It was that AMAZING.
