Falling Backward, by Regina Kypriandes
In the midst of the pandemic, Hope Harlow, an engaged 30-year-old writer living in New York City, is suddenly forced to reevaluate her life when her past and future unexpectedly collide.
After a decade of searching, but to no avail, Alex–the man she met while traveling abroad to Ibiza–abruptly reappears. Hope must now come face-to-face with a memory she has never let go of and the planned life she is subsequently supposed to have.
Has fate stepped in to reaffirm the path she is on, or has it unfolded before her to show her that memories might not always be memories, and connections–no matter how long they are lost for–will always return one day.
