Graham Russell and I weren’t made for one another.
I was driven by emotion; he was apathetic. I dreamed while he lived in nightmares. I cried when he had no tears to shed.
Despite his frozen heart and my readiness to run, we sometimes shared seconds. Seconds when our eyes locked and we saw each other’s secrets. Seconds when his lips tasted my fears, and I breathed in his pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another.
Those seconds left us floating, but when reality knocked us sideways, gravity forced us to descend.
Graham Russell wasn’t a man who knew how to love, and I wasn’t a woman who knew how to either. Yet if I had the chance to fall again, I’d fall with him forever.
Even if we were destined to crash against solid ground.
ALL THE STARS Review by Ashley
Brittainy C. Cherry has done it again. Made my heart a puddle of happy mush. My heart is overflowing with joy after reading The Gravity of Us. This book, this incredible tale gets ALL THE STARS! There is no way that my words can do this book justice but I'm going to give it a whirl because there are somethings that just have to be said. This book did things to me. Profound things. It moved me. To tears (not all of them sad). More than once.
A writer who can't find the words. Whose story is lacking heart. A Hippie who wears her heart on her sleeve. Who loves loudly. It shouldn't work. In no way does it make sense but somehow it just does. Simply Put, Graham and Lucy's story,was beautiful. Heartbreaking. There was so much grief but also so much joy. It was the quiet moments between them. The words that weren't said. The stories told with their eyes and by their actions that spoke the loudest.
I am in major book hangover mode from reading The Gravity of Us. Like haven't been able to think of anything but this book for days. Thank you Brittainy C. Cherry. For your words (I can't even tell you how many passages I hi-lighted). For the giving me pain and heart and healing. For giving me characters who were so beautifully flawed and wonderfully human. Lucy's and Graham's story truly captivated me. It was impossible to put down and will be even harder to forget.
