Yowza, where do I begin? Well first So Near The Horizon is an amazing book, but let me tell you why especially since it's a true story. Jessica and Danny's love story starts off a little slow so you have to give it some time before it really picks up. Their relationship flourishes throughout the years which I really liked that about the book. The story spanned over years instead of just a short period of time.
So Near The Horizon is one of those books that will stay with you long after you read it. I only have a select few that are on my list and So Near The Horizon made it. I know I will be going back and reading this one again. Definitely check this amazing book out!
About the Author
Jessica Koch (born in Ludwigsburg, Germany) began writing short stories when she was still in high school, but never submitted her work to publishers. In late 1999, shortly after beginning her studies to become an architectural drafter, she met Danny, a German-American dual national. Her experiences with him eventually formed the basis for So Near the Horizon, though it was nearly thirteen years before she felt ready to bring the manuscript to the public. The author describes a life lived somewhere between hope and fear, between optimism and despair. She reflects on events from her own past with raw honesty, confronting more than one difficult subject along the way. Jessica Koch lives near the city of Heilbronn with her husband, their son, and two dogs. The second and third books in the trilogy, So Near the Abyss and So Near the Ocean, are already best-sellers in Germany as well.
