    Okay Heather Chapman I have read four of your works now and this one is my absolute favoriteTake my word for it everyone and READ THIS BOOK I loved it I couldn’t put it down the past couple days Every spare moment I got I snuck in a chapter or two and when I couldn’t read I wished I were readingWhat book you say? Well it’s a brand new book by Heather Chapman called Forever ElleThe main character of Forever Elle is a young awkward accident prone unladylike young woman named Elle Pratt She lives on a farm in the early 1900s with her family in the Tetons She wears her heart on her sleeve is stubborn feisty and is a constant disappointment to her father who is incredibly hard on her as well as her brother PaulWhen one too many incidents happen her father sends not only her but her beautiful ladylike kind hearted sister Clara to live with their Aunt Nora to attend a boarding school in Virginia The move will change Clara’s and Elle’s lives in many complex ways and Elle has to decide who she is and where she belongs in the world as she grows into womanhoodI don’t want to give too much of the story away but I will say that the characters are complex and so interesting I feel like I don’t have much in common with Elle except maybe her stubbornness and proneness to tears when things are hard but I just adored her character Sometimes she made me laugh out loud and other times I really felt for her She felt like a real person to me and I loved going through her journey of self discovery with herThe book made me do two things several times – blush with girlish excitement over the chemistry between Elle and a young man I won’t name it’s better to find out yourself and cry unexpectedly at parts that weren’t necessarily supposed to make me cry like when someone gets thrown in the creek My emotions surprised me sometimes as I was readingI knew what the ending of the book would be pretty early on but that’s okay because I eagerly awaited the completely satisfying and heart pounding exchanges that led to the ending or shall I say new beginning?When I finished the book I realized that most of the story was just about regular life and that there weren’t that many adventurous or over the top moments but I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book didn’t need anything like that It stood perfectly well on its own two feet simply by following the life of dear Elle Pratt And that is saying somethingWell done Heather Chapman Congrats on this masterpiece I truly loved it

    Started out boring and didn't really go anywhere I did not understand the importance of minor details or conversations but by the end I was practically in tears I love the sentimentality memories realizations of changing one's heart and importance of family Really well written everything tied together in the end and made me feel like I was a part of Elle's family When she felt joy I did when she cried I cried Emotional nostalgic tender overall lovely story Was really not expecting it to be this good but would definitely read again and again

    This is one of those books that caused my house to be a mess kids to eat cereal for dinner and a long sleepless night because I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN I liked the character development of Elle as she aged and I enjoyed the juxtaposition of Elle’s two worlds; the valley and the city The trials seemed real and helped develop some of the characters in a deeper way

    Forever Elle is an entertaining book with plenty of friction and romance Elle doesn't see herself as the beauty she is and spends a lot of time comparing herself with her elder sister Elle faces tough uestions about her past while navigating boarding school new associations and tragedy She also finds love in unexpected places
