Synopsis

Raised by conservative parents, 18-year-old Meg Hennessey just found out her entire childhood was a lie. Instead of taking a gap year before college to find herself, she ends up traveling north to meet what’s left of the family she never knew existed.

While there, she meets Micah Allen, a former pastor’s kid whose dad ended up in prison, leaving Micah with his own complicated relationship about the church. The clock is ticking on Pastor Allen’s probation hearing and Micah, now 19, feels the pressure to forgive – even when he can’t possibly forget.

As Meg and Micah grow closer, they are confronted with the heavy flutterings of first love and all the complications it brings. Together, they must navigate the sometimes-painful process of cutting ties with childhood beliefs as they build toward something truer and straight from the heart.

In Erin Hahn’s Never Saw You Coming, sometimes it takes a leap of faith to find yourself.

Review

Meg learns that her childhood was a lie, her father is not her father and her mother was not married when she became pregnant. Her real father is dead but his family is still alive and she decides to go and meet them during her gap year. Meg is a religious person and even after her mother’s lies that doesn’t really change.

She will meet Micah, his father was a pastor but has been in prison for a while now and his relationship with the church is somewhat complicated.

They will get to know each other, appreciate each other, help each other and love each other.

Meg will also get to know her uncle, her grandmother and she will have to learn to forgive, whether it be her stepfather or her mother.

There is one thing I particularly liked about this book and I might be spoiling you a bit but at no point is Micah and Meg’s relationship in danger;

One thing I like less and less in romances is the “drama”, every time a couple is good together, something has to happen to break it up. And that annoys me to no end, so it’s a joy to see that’s not the case here.

I loved the author’s writing, the story is beautiful and I had a great time with Meg and Micah.

Quick word : A very nice little read that deserves to be discovered by all.

Chronique

Meg apprend que son enfance a été un mensonge, son père n’est pas son père et sa mère n’était pas mariée lorsqu’elle est tombée enceinte. Son vrai père est mort mais sa famille vit toujours et elle décide d’aller les rencontrer pendant son année sabbatique. Meg est une personne croyante et même après les mensonges de sa mère cela ne change pas vraiment.

Elle va faire la rencontre de Micah, son père était pasteur mais est en prison depuis un moment déjà et sa relation avec l’église est quelque peu compliquée.

Ils vont apprendre à se connaitre, s’apprécier, s’entraider et s’aimer.

Meg va aussi découvrir son oncle, sa grand-mère et elle va devoir apprendre à pardonner, que ce soit à son beau père ou sa mère.

Il y a une chose que j’ai particulièrement aimé dans ce livre et je vais peut-être vous spoiler un peu mais à aucun moment la relation entre Micah et Meg n’est en danger ;

Une chose que j’apprécie de moins en moins dans les romances c’est le « dramatique », à chaque fois qu’un couple est bien ensemble, il faut qu’il se passe quelque chose pour tout casser. Et ça m’énerve au plus haut point, donc c’est un bonheur de voir que ce n’est pas le cas ici.

J’ai adoré la plume de l’auteur, l’histoire est très belle et j’ai passé un très bon moment en compagnie de Meg et Micah.

En bref : Une petite lecture très sympathique qui mérite d’être découverte par tous.
