One kiss lasts a moment. But a thousand kisses can last a lifetime. One boy. One girl. A bond that is forged in an instant and cherished for a decade. A bond that neither time nor distance can break. A bond that will last forever. Or so they believe. When seventeen-year-old Rune Kristiansen returns from his native Norway to the sleepy town of Blossom Grove, Georgia, where he befriended Poppy Litchfield as a child, he has just one thing on his mind. Why did the girl who was one half of his soul, who promised to wait faithfully for his return, cut him off without a word of explanation? Rune’s heart was broken two years ago when Poppy fell silent. When he discovers the truth, he finds that the greatest heartache is yet to come.

“A new adventure, Rune. To collect a thousand boy-kisses before I die, from my soulmate.”
“Poppymin! It means my Poppy. For infinity, forever and always. You’re MY Poppy! (…) I’ll give you a thousand kisses, Poppymin. All of them. No one will kiss you ever, but me.”
Beautifully written story about power of true love, which lasts until the end as well. It is filled with beautiful and thought-provoking dialogues, and it has two wonderful and unique characters, whom are readers will surely lock in their hearts. Tillie Cole wonderfully portrays the feelings, her style convinced me. I’m sure I’m going to read more from her.
I was part of a wonderful adventure. And I got knew two amazing characters who are wonderful together. This book captivated me, but it remind me of my own memories, too. Even now I can’t find words to this book. I simply adored it.
“A forever kiss with my Rune … in our blossom grove … when he finally came home… and my heart almost burst.”
I could hardly read the last few chapters of book through without crying. It was so beautiful and heartbreaking. But I’m glad that Tillie Cole gave it a nice ending. I think it was a bit like a fairy tale, but a lot of the story about sure that we all meet again.
