The Romantic is a love story about friendship, passion, and the echo of unrequited love.
Hadriel Alighieri has harbored a secret love in his heart for his entire life. It began in his youth, when he fell in love with his best friend, Sophia Paula. After Sophia leaves for America and is later betrothed to Joshua Abrams, Hadriel is devastated, but he is a hopeless romantic.
In the winter of his life he is haunted by the memory of Sophia Paula. When the Angel of Death comes for Hadriel, the journey begins. From his deathbed, he travels to the day he fell in love. He retraces the steps of his life in search of his unrequited love. For she too harbors a secret love in her heart. But what begins as a journey to fulfill a promise turns into a discovery of the only emotion that defines our lives.
Did she wait for him?
The Romantic is an intelligent, poignant novel about romantic love, missed chances, and a life lived in search of the happiness that comes from finding one’s other half.
I love reading romance novels. I did even before I was married and happily in love. They would give me the hopes and dreams of finding love for myself someday.
Hadriel has an undying love for Sophia that we all dream of. He has loved her for as long as he can remember. While on his deathbed he revisits his life and the love he has for Sophia.
This is a great book to curl up with on a cold winter’s day. You can get lost in the story and feel comfort.
