The sequel to the classic New York Times bestselling Love Story.

Oliver Barrett IV found his soulmate in Jenny Cavilleri. Their love was exhilarating and heartbreakingly brief. It was a love to last a lifetime. Or so Oliver told himself.

This poignant and unforgettable sequel to the beloved classic, Love Story, is a tale of one man’s journey out of the darkness of grief and back into love’s warm in embrace and a story that will capture your heart again and again.
