Book Review: The Gravity of Us

Title: The Gravity of Us

Author: Brittainy C. Cherry

Rating: 5 stars

 

This is such an amazing, beautiful and unique story and I loved it. It starts with Lucille Palmer. A heroine with loads of strength, love, and the biggest heart. Lucy has 2 older sisters and they all lost their free spirited mother years ago. Out of all the girls, Lucy is the one most like her mother. She’s a free spirit and a total lovable character and I loved every single thing about her.

 

Lucy owns a florist with her sister and is providing the flowers for Graham’s fathers funeral. Lucy ends up staying for the funeral so she can collect the thousand dollar flowers before they are thrown out. Lucy ends up meeting Graham when she gets accidentally locked in the back.

 

“Lucille—”
“You can call me Lucy.”
“How old are you?”
“Twenty-six.”
“Lucy is a name for a child. If you ever truly want to make it in the world, you should go by Lucille.”
“Noted. If you ever want to be the life of the party, you should consider the nickname Graham Cracker.”

Lucy and Graham meet under interesting circumstances. It’s safe to say that they are opposites. Lucy is fun, free, and happy, where as Graham is taciturn, grounded, and grouchy. This is a story of opposites who are thrown together and some how, some way fall for each other. At first, Lucy drives Graham crazy, but with time, she grows on him. In fact, she is one of the very few people in this world Graham can stand. I loved how different they were from one another. Seeing the way Graham changed and evolved afters spending time with Lucy was one of my favorite parts of the story. I love how one person can come into your life and change everything for you.

 
The story itself you are much better finding out for yourself but it is a warm, beautiful and heartfelt story and definitely one of my favourite books I’ve read this year.
