This is what I know memory is the same as water It permeates and saturates uenches and satisfies It can hold you up or pull you under render you weightless or drown you It is tangible but elusive My memories of Eva are like this the watery dreams of the past I can no easily grasp than a fistful of the ocean I am not crying I am not cryingI AM NOT FUCKING CRYINGI almost never cry in books but this book had me a sniveling sobbing mess I wasn t expecting this book to pack the punch that it did and I certainly didn t ever suspect I would care about a couple as much as I did Billie and Eva But the surprises are never ending with this book as I soon learned from readingBillie Valentine is a housewife living a relatively normal life in Vermont It s the 1960s so her primary job is to stay home take care of the house and her two girls and make her husband happy It s a boring existence and not the easiest of ones since Frank isn t the best husband to have or even her first choice That was the one thing about Frankie He was able to see the potential in things I m fairly certain that was the only reason why he d wound up with me in the first place I was fixer upper in his eyes A girl with real potential But her world is about to change when new neighbors move in across the street bringing on the arrival of the Wilson family Another picture perfect family Eva Wilson is the seemingly ideal 1960s housewife and she and Billie become fast friends It soon turns into something and at a time when lesbian relationships were considered extremely taboo theirs must be kept a secret But as they soon find out some secrets aren t meant to be kept uiet I m really at a loss for words to describe this novel There s an overwhelming sadness about it but there s also an underlying sense of optimism about it As if the author herself isn t ready to give up on the idea that maybe just maybe she can give her characters the happiness they deserve It obviously doesn t turn out that way since she ll put your emotions through the ringer but it s there As you watch Billie and Eva s relationship develop from friendship to something you ll really be able to see their bond deepen Some couples in literature claim to have a deep bond but they really don t Here there will be no denying it no uestion that they not only truly love each other but are meant to be together I am thinking of Eva as I walk from the bar back to my cottage She is in the swaying palm trees in the moon in the receding tide I hear her voice in the tinkling wind chimes that hang from my porch feel her touch in the breeze At times though you ll chide them for being so seemingly selfish and careless about their relationship particularly when it comes to their children You ll cluck your tongue at how in the world they could just let six and seven year old s trick or treat by themselves while they have a tryst in the woods But at the same time you ll understand in a weird and twisted way why they have to be so fucking selfish Because being selfish is the only way they can have a relationship If anyone found out they d crucify them We see through this book how far we ve come and how much work we have to doThis was alternately the most beautiful love story I ve read so far this year but also the most heartbreaking I ve never rooted for a ship harder than I have for this one and while I didn t uite get the happy ending I was looking for what I got instead was the most beautiful and tender of love stories that shows that no matter how much time passes love will almost always conuer all If they were to listen to really listen they would hear the waves crashing on the shore behind her beating like a pulse Eva Eva
