The Clearing by Heather Davis

*some spoilers ahead!*


The Clearing
Heather Davis


Amy, a sixteen-year-old recovering from an abusive relationship, moves to the country to start a new life with her aunt–all she wants is for everything to be different. In the clearing at the back of Aunt Mae’s property, she makes an amazing discovery—Henry, a boy stuck in the endless summer of 1944. Henry and his world become Amy’s refuge and she begins to learn that some moments are worth savoring. But when the past and present come crashing together, both of them must find the courage to face what is meant to be, even if it means losing each other forever.


The Clearing was certainly an interesting story.

This novel was touching and sweet and seemed to show a fairly accurate view of a relationship. Yet, I was disappointed by the ending. Amy and Henry seemed so perfect together and I just loved them together and then the ending came.

I enjoyed it while I read it, but I was still kind of disappointed. I was looking for a genuine love story, something almost like The Time Traveler's Wife. And instead I got...this.

But on a better note, Henry was a fabulous character and I loved his care and compassion for his family. And Amy was sweet, though sometimes she bugged me.

I don't really have much more to say about this. It seemed like an okay kind of book to me and it's definitely something to try.

P.S. I got this from netgalley, hence why it's not in any of my IMM!
