I was born in sadness, which was just the beginning of a solemn and desolate life. I’m no stranger to pain—none of us are. The night I held my best friend’s hand as she died, I understood true agony. And I never thought I’d feel happiness again.
But that was so long ago…
Moving to Colorado to be with Colin, my high school sweetheart, was the perfect way to start over and rekindle what had begun to fizzle. I wanted that spark to ignite, to burn in passion and desire. Instead, I found myself falling for Jude, my boyfriend’s roommate. He’s the only person who understands my soul, who can breach the walls I’ve built. But I can’t have him.
Because I’m Trista Kohl, and my destiny is sorrow.
It’s been a week since I’ve read this book and every day I sit at my laptop determined to write a review and every day I shut my laptop in defeat. Usually I am good with words and expressing how a book made me feel, but for this one, I come up blank. What I find more peculiar is that I inhaled this book. I took in every word and absorbed every sentence. It weighed heavy on my mind and even heavier on my heart. Through Trista Kohl, Whitney Barbetti has paid attention to detail and depicted sadness in an alluring and enchanting story of love, loss and light.
Into the Tomorrows is about a girl that is born into sadness and continues to live in darkness and disheartenment. Consumed by the death of her best friend, Barbetti takes readers on an exploration of Trista’s fears and intense loneliness.
Shrouded in solitude for so long, Trista finally decides she needs to let the past go. Off to Colorado to live with her boyfriend of six years, Trista longs to find herself, longs to belong, and longs for hope.
Instantly being with Colin seems like a mistake. Returning to Colin feels wrong. But, here with Colin… is Jude.
Jude is like the sun. Strong, fierce and burning so bright, he is different, he is captivating, he is the light that eclipses Trista’s dark.
In a poignant journey of self-discovery, Whitney Barbetti weaves in a love story that can only be described as spellbinding and soul wrenching, filled with anguish, heartache and a determined streak of hope. Jude and Trista, together tell the multifaceted tale of finding the right kind of love at that the wrong time.
Written with such thought and meticulousness, Trista’s story and her connection with Jude is deep and profound. You will feel it in your heart and you will feel it in your bones.
