The Sight of You by Holly Miller

Joel is afraid of the future.
Since he was a child he's been haunted by dreams about the people he loves. Visions of what's going to happen - the good and the bad. And the only way to prevent them is to never let anyone close to him again.
Callie can't let go of the past.
Since her best friend died, Callie's been lost. She knows she needs to be more spontaneous and live a bigger life. She just doesn't know how to find a way back to the person who used to have those dreams.
Joel and Callie both need a reason to start living for today.
And though they're not looking for each other, from the moment they meet it feels like the start of something life-changing.
Until Joel has a vision of how it's going to end . .

With bookshops currently closed I miss the lure of book covers enticing me over to the bookshelves. One beauty though has continually caught my eye on social media with its delicate and simplistic pretty cover, The Sight of You by Holly Miller there was something about this book that kept intriguing me and once I read the synopsis I was sold, I just HAD to read this book.

Our main character Joel has what some people would call a gift but that isn’t how Joel sees it. Troubled by dreams he has about those close to him that come true he is scared to let anyone close to him. Callie has been affected by the loss of her friend and it is time for her to start living again, try to achieve some of her ambitions and dreams she had.

What a praise worthy novel this book is, Holly Miller has such a beautiful style of writing that sweeps you away and she has a true skill at developing such detailed and believable characters it is so easy to become invested in them and their story which is why I found their romance and situation had such an impact on me.

I love a storyline to feel believable and although you may think that a man whose dreams come true is far fetched it didn’t feel like this at all. Both Callie and Joel were very down to earth likeable characters who have hearts of gold and all you hope for is a happy ending for them both as it is what they truly deserve. I loved watched the friendship and then the romance between them both blossom.

This is such a beautiful tragic storyline that has well and truly broken me without giving to much away and there is one scene in this novel particularly that without giving too much away, was so heartbreaking and was written with so much tender care an emotion that a full on ugly cry escaped from me.

This was a remarkable read that will stay with me for a long time to come. One word of warning is to make sure you have those tissues to hand because this is a heartbreaker. Holly Miller is definitely an author to look out for and this book is one to share far and wide.
