Book Review – 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 . . .

I knew this book was going to be right up my street the moment I read the synopsis way back last year, and so I was beyond excited when my request to read it on Netgalley was accepted!

Joel has dreams predicting the future of his loved ones. The good and the bad, he’s scared to love anyone else and is broken by his desire to stop the glimpses of what’s to come that weigh heavy on him

But then he meets Callie – healing after the loss of her best friend, Joel and Callie click. They’re soul mates. But when Joel dreams of Callie, he has to make one of the hardest decisions of his life. Sometimes loving someone means letting them go

I adored every word of this book. It’s tender, romantic and heartbreaking. Joel’s predicament is unique, a curse he struggles to live with. I felt so bad for him, and I’m not going to lie, a little bit in love with him too. The romance between him and Callie is so beautiful and pure – I yearned for their happiness. Both characters are gorgeous and likeable. I was fully behind them throughout

I felt every emotion while reading, Holly Miller’s beautiful writing takes you on a rollercoaster of hope and heartache that is physical. The Sight of You was everything I’d hoped for and more. If you enjoy books with an epic love story with a unique twist, like The Time Travellers Wife, The Light We Lost or In Five Years, then this one is for you. Stunning 💗
