Sparrow Fisher is transforming. No longer dressed up in antiquated clothes and ideals, she is finally trying on her freedom.
Before she moves to New York City, she meets Ian Sterling, a musician Sparrow has dreamed about since she first saw him. The attraction is instant, but their relationship isn’t so simple.
Over a five year span, Sparrow and Ian run into each other in unusual places. Each time, Sparrow has to decide if she can trust him, if he feels the same for her, and finally, if love is really enough.
My Love Letter to Ian
It’s been 365 days since I met you and you changed my life. I will never look at life or love the same. It has taken me way too long to write this letter to convince the world that they need to meet you. I have read your words 8 times, and I fall in love with you more every time I do.
“It has been a year, two months, and seventeen days since I last saw him. Two years, ten months, and five days since he broke my heart—well, since I knew that he had broken my hear. Technically, he began breaking my heart the moment I met him, five years, eleven months, and one day ago.” ~Sparrow
My love affair with your story, True Love Story—began, and it’s never ended.
You walked into my life with your beautiful voice and you melted my heart. I love how you list all the things you love about Sparrow’s body parts, making her get splotchy. I would imagine myself between the pages “being” Sparrrow and I get lost in your words.
“I see this face every night when I close my eyes. All day long, I think I see you, everywhere I go… I never stopped loving you, Sparrow Fisher…I’ve never loved anyone but you.”
Do you hear that Ian? That is the sound of my heart fluttering in my chest from your beautiful words.
“God, I want to kiss you.” ~your words to Sparrow.
You made me feel, you made me crazy, you made me want to scream… but most of all—you made me fall in HARDCORE love with you.
And when you told Sparrow how you felt, you know when you first met, I think I just died a little. Your words. They melted me.
There were so many ups and downs, twists and turns, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
“I just want you to know … that if you didn’t get me a single present … the way you love me would be more than enough.”
Just WOW… how do you top that? I didn’t think it was possible, but you did.
Your letters. Your words. Your truth. Most beautiful thing I’ve ever read.
“My hope is that what has gone before is only the introductory chapter of our love story. There are memories to be made. For us—“
To say that I will ever love anyone like you isn’t even enough to describe my true, deep love for you Ian. You made me believe in true love stories, have faith in forgiveness, gave me hope and most of all believe that love is enough.
“Love is enough.
Love does conquer all.
Love really does always protect, trust, hope, persevere…
I”d even go as far as saying that love never fails. I finally believe that.”
And I do Ian, I really do. I will always fight for love. I will always believe. You have my heart forever and always and I’m so sorry it’s taken me this long to tell you how I feel.
I will love you forever and ever still,
Your number one fan,
Ps… Willow Aster, you amaze me with your beautiful words and your passion. I will never, ever be able to thank you for creating the love of my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
