Following Evan by Elida May
Three years on from the sudden death of her husband Matt and a subsequent miscarriage, interior designer Laura is still lost in grief, hiding out in the smart London townhouse that was going to be her family home. On the encouragement of her best friend Carla, she signs up to a dating website and receives a message from a mysterious stranger, imploring her to visit him in New York because he has seen her face in his dreams. Meanwhile, Laura visits an art gallery and is captivated by a painting of a beautiful woman in a flowing dress. It seems to be speaking directly to her, beckoning her to take a leap of faith. These seemingly disparate events lead Laura on an epic journey to the bustling streets of the Big Apple and the desert landscape of Wyoming, where the clues to her future happiness are waiting to be discovered…
My Review of Following Evan:
Following Evan takes us on a journey as we witness and get to know Laura trying to solve the mystery of the stranger on the dating website. Having lost both Matt and her unborn child, Laura does struggle mentally and physically at times to cope whilst working as an interior designer. Taking place in London, New York and the US state of Wyoming, Following Evan is a story of mystery, love and passion. For anyone wanting a story with an escape, this is the one.
I loved how the author Elida May was able to connect Laura as a character emotionally. I could feel her struggles as if I was there experiencing them with her. The settings particularly while Laura was in New York made me want to go and visit the city more. A story full of emotions as well as what really happened to Evan and the mysterious stranger made Following Evan a real page turner. Final star rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
