In her 20s Emma Blair marries her high school sweetheart, Jesse. They build a life for themselves, far away from the expectations of their parents and the people of their hometown. They travel the world together, living life to the fullest.

On their first wedding anniversary, Jesse is on a helicopter over the Pacific when it goes missing. Just like that, Jesse is gone forever.

Emma quits her job and moves home in an effort to put her life back together. Years later, now in her 30s, Emma runs into an old friend, Sam, and finds herself falling in love again. When Emma and Sam get engaged, it feels like Emma’s second chance at happiness. That is, until Jesse is found. He’s alive, and he’s been trying all these years to come home to her.

Until now, I had never read or listened to a book penned by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I had no idea what I was missing out on. The story was profound, beautiful and heart-wrenching, and the narrator captured beautifully the emotions within its pages.

Julia Whelan was spectacular! I was captivated by her storytelling. Her timing and pacing were perfect, her character renditions sublime. She brought me to tears when she read the letter from Emma to Jesse, and she had me laughing while she was talking on the phone with Olive.

Ms. Reid takes us on a journey from the teen years of Emma, Jesse, and Sam to their adult lives. Their journeys intertwine. When the Past interrupts the present, will true love win?

I’m not sure you could read this book and not come away without having learned something about yourself. About love. About life.

A story of second chances, true loves and life-changing decisions, One True Loves is one of those stories that enter your mind and take root in your soul.
