You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley

Mia Graydon’s life looks picket-fence perfect; she has the house, her loving husband, and dreams of starting a family. But she has other dreams too — unexplained, recurring ones starring the same man. Still, she doesn’t think much of them, until a relocation to small-town Pennsylvania brings her face to face with the stranger she has been dreaming about for years. And this man harbors a jaw-dropping secret of his own—he’s been dreaming of her too.

Determined to understand, Mia and this not-so-stranger search for answers. But when diving into their pasts begins to unravel her life in the present, Mia emerges with a single question—what if?

When I read the summary of You Were There Too, I knew it was going to be a tear-jerker. It was, for sure, but in a different way than I expected. It became one of those books that I couldn’t wait to get back to while also dreading the fact it will end. Something I found interesting while reading was that I couldn’t decide how I wanted this story to end. But as the story played out, I quickly grew to love how the characters were flawed, but genuine in asking all of the hard questions about life and love. This will be a story I remember.
