History of Us by Stacey Agdern
Publisher: Tule Publishing • Publication Date: June 24, 2021
Second chance romance and Jewish representation? Sign me up! When Stacey Agdern sent me a digital copy of the book and also told me there was Long Island representation in it, I wrote her back and said I think I’m going to love it, and I did love History of Us.
After being introduced to Anna in Miracles and Menorah, I couldn’t wait to read her story and I was definitely invested if her and Jacob would be able to give things another go. They both had valid reasons why they wanted to be together, but also had reasons for why things might not work in their favor and I love the way Stacey wrote about it and explored all sides. One of my favorite things in this book, like in the first book was the friendships. I loved the way all of Anna’s friends (and family) rallied around her to help her out throughout the book and I loved Batya as the voice of reason when it came to Anna and Jacob’s relationship.
The Jewish representation sprinkled throughout the story was excellent! Stacey made me also crave a pastrami sandwich after reading this book. I also loved the accuracy of Long Island locales mentioned throughout the story, I was able to picture all of the places that Anna and Jacob traveled to.
Thank you to Stacey Agdern for sending me an advance digital copy in exchange for an honest review. History of Us will be out on June 24.
