9780062105653: Someone Else's Love Story

Someone Else's Love Story is beloved and highly acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Joshilyn Jackson's funny, charming, and poignant novel about science and miracles, secrets and truths, faith and forgiveness; about falling in love, and learning that things aren't always what they seem—or what we hope they will be.

Shandi Pierce is juggling finishing college, raising her delightful three-year-old genius son Nathan, aka Natty Bumppo, and keeping the peace between her eternally warring, long-divorced parents. She's got enough complications without getting caught in the middle of a stick-up and falling in love with William Ashe, who willingly steps between the robber and her son.

Shandi doesn't know that her blond god Thor has his own complications. When he looked down the barrel of that gun he believed it was destiny: It's been one year to the day since a tragic act of physics shattered his world. But William doesn't define destiny the way others do. A brilliant geneticist who believes in facts and numbers, destiny to him is about choice. Now, he and Shandi are about to meet their so-called destinies head on, making choices that will reveal unexpected truths about love, life, and the world they think they know.

Review:

“Witty, cleverly constructed and including a truly surprising twist, Someone Else’s Love Story turns out to be a nuanced exploration of faith, family and the things we do for love.” (People (3 ½ stars))

“Witty and insightful...a novel at once funny and touching.” (Publishers Weekly)

“An inspiring story of love, faith and redemption...All of the characters... are so vividly drawn, they fairly leap off the page.” (Booklist on SOMEONE ELSE'S LOVE STORY)

“That rare woman’s novel that is sure to please readers of popular fiction as well as literary fiction. A terrific pageturner!” (Susan Elizabeth Phillips, New York Times bestselling author of THE GREAT ESCAPE)

Someone Else’s Love Story is worth reading, even studying. Expressions of love come in many forms, as Jackson shows.” (Omaha World-Herald)

“Finely drawn characters make the miraculous plausible, from the opening hostage scene in a North Georgia convenience store to an ending that hits the mark of ‘surprising yet inevitable’ mastered and articulated by Flannery O’Connor.” (Atlanta Magazine)

“A surprising novel, both graceful and tender. You won’t be able to put it down.” (Dallas Morning News on SOMEONE ELSE'S LOVE STORY)

Someone Else’s Love Story is never predictable, full of humor and heart and characters you can’t help but love.” (Greenville News)

“[T]here is love at [this novel’s] heart… there is much to gain from a closer read.” (3 out of 4 stars) (USA Today)

“Joshilyn Jackson is a brilliant storyteller and has a unique gift of bringing quirkiness to her characters and a lot of twists and turns to her tale.” (Wichita Falls Times Record Review)

“There are scenes that will make you gasp, pause or even tear up as Jackson’s characters fumble toward imperfect enlightenment. Someone Else’s Love Story will delight and surprise with its unexpected compassion, empathy and humanity.” (BookPage)

“This charming page-turner serves up a twist I never remotely expected, followed by an utterly satisfying conclusion.” (Bookreporter.com)

From the Back Cover:

For single mom Shandi Pierce, life is a juggling act. She's finishing college, raising precocious three-year-old Natty, and keeping the peace between her eternally warring, long-divorced parents.Then she gets caught in the middle of a stickup at a gas station and falls instantly in love with William Ashe, when he steps between the armed robber and her son.

Shandi doesn't know that William's act wasn't about bravery. When he looked down the barrel of the robber's gun he believed it was destiny: it's been exactly one year since a tragic act of physics shattered his universe. But William doesn't define destiny the way other people do—to him destiny is about choice.

Now William and Shandi are about to meet their so-called destinies head-on, making choices that will reveal unexpected truths about love, life, and the world they think they know.
