I used to read novels all of the time. The time before children, that is. Now, when I do have some down time, I get on my iPhone. I really need to stop doing that and start reading again because I really enjoyed reading.
I would read a whole novel in one or two nights. If I was really into a good book, I just could not put it down. I got lost in it! I miss that!
One book I came across and feel like I need to read, is called 1 Billion Seconds: A Fictional Memoir. It sounds like a great summer beach book for romance enthusiasts! A book I could definitely get lost in and not put down until it was done being read.
Have you ever asked yourself, “What if?” about one of your past loves? I have. Not to say I don’t love my hubby SO much, but being human, I think we all think about things like that from time to time and wondered where are they now?
Real-life couple Poppy and Geoff Spencer, are the authors of 1 Billion Seconds: A Fictional Memoir and they did just that. They wondered about each other their whole lives and found each other again!
They were college sweethearts who graduated and lost touch. After four divorces between them, they reunited, 1 billion seconds, or 32 years later! The book is a voyeuristic look into many true events in the couple’s lives—both separate and united.
The beautiful story opens in happy times, featuring the two young students in sunny Florida over three decades ago. But their storybook romance comes to a screeching halt when Poppy graduates ahead of Geoff and returns home to Wisconsin. Initially, the young love was not enough for distance and naiveté. It delivers a powerful tale of how true love transcends time, tragedy and a broken heart.
It’s more than a novel and not exactly a memoir; instead, 1 Billion Seconds is an inspirational tale that weaves the Spencers’ real-life professional experiences as relational coaches with their own love story.
Readers of 1 Billion Seconds are given hope, the courage to take risks that honor who they are, and a roadmap to eliminate negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that prevent true happiness in a relationship. 1 Billion Seconds provides a rich and textured love story against the backdrop of practical, useful relationship advice from real-life, professional relationship coaches.
I don’t know about you, but this book sounds very interesting to me and a must-read for summertime or any time of the year. Bring it to the beach, read it in bed, read it over your morning coffee!
