change your life forever.
up, Peyton Spencer fell in love with the boy across the road, Callum Reid. As
the years went by, it only made sense that they would wind up being completely
and utterly infatuated with each other. That was, until the morning Peyton
wakes up to find Callum packing up and leaving the small town they lived in.
Left heartbroken and with no explanation, Peyton spends the next four years of
her life without him, ensuring they never cross paths again.
seventeen and months after Callum leaves her, Peyton buries her parents—feeling
more alone than ever before. Now at twenty-one, she’s inherited the family
hotel, The Spencer-Dayle. Just when she thinks life couldn’t get more
complicated, the one person that shattered her heart, soul and belief returns.

she’s tried to forget.
not the same boy she once fell in love with. He’s guarded and keeps secrets
close to him. Peyton knows her life will begin to unravel.
truths will finally come to light. Whether or not Peyton wants to hear it, the
truth will undoubtedly break her heart all over again.
I tip my hat to Len. She is one beautiful writer.
Sometimes Moments is not just a book for me. It is an inspiration and it definitely changes the perspective of life. It is one of the best reads I’ve come across.
It is a beautiful story of Peyton and Callum. But it tags with itself some hangover. You would be needing a box of kleenex, and lots of chocolate ice-cream.
This book will make you connect with the story in an emotion way. You’ll cry, but it is hard to put it down. You want to read it until the end, even if it means throwing yourself into emotion plot twists.
I love Len for writing such a story. She has written this book so beautifully. I don’t think I’ve ever read such a book in my life. This is can be a life changer.
Sometimes Moments will make you realise that you need to cherish each moment of your life. Forgiveness is hard to give, but let go of the grudge. Create your own happy moment. When you are in that moment, you’ll know that it is a sometimes moments.
“When you know, you know.”
Peyton listened until Jay’s familiar laugh rang high and then she
breathed out. His laugh was a form of remedy for her. Though he was so much
like Peyton and Graham, he was far different from them. Jay was comfortable
with his life. For Peyton, she was just managing.
Shaking her head, Peyton looked down at the papers sprawled on the
table. The sound of a chair scratching caught her attention. When she lifted
her gaze, she was irritated to see none other than Callum Reid sitting in front
of her, his arms crossed over his chest.
Peyton closed her eyes tight and sat properly in her chair. It was a
talk Callum wanted, and Peyton had thoroughly avoided it since his return.
“Peyton,” Callum acknowledged in a dull tone.
“Callum,” she said, mimicking the lifeless pitch in his voice.
His lips pursed and he eyed her. Silence was exchanged between them,
suffocating her. When it reached an unbearable quota, Peyton started to collect
“Why does everyone in this town love you so much but hate me? I grew up
His question startled her, causing Peyton to lift her head and glance at
him. His eyes swept over the pub, filled with disbelief.
He really doesn’t get it.
“Because you left, Callum,” Peyton stated.
He slowly turned his head until his eyes met hers. Callum’s jaw locked
as if he were attempting to control his emotions around her.
“So did everyone else,” he pointed out.
“Everyone had their reasons.”
Callum’s eyes flashed and he abruptly leant forward. “And I didn’t,
“Yes, you did. But you didn’t give me
a reason. They all left because they gave a reason. They told the town. They
let people know. But you? You just up and left, Callum. You didn’t tell me.”
Callum flinched like her words had hurt him, which Peyton found
ridiculous. “I had my reasons, Peyton,” he said through clenched teeth. “But
that doesn’t explain why these people I’ve grown up with can’t even look at
This time, it was Peyton who flinched. Her eyes burned. He still didn’t
“Because you didn’t come back!” she shouted, tears running down her
cheeks. That façade she had hid behind crumbled. She no longer used a fake
smile. For Peyton, this was as raw and as naked as it got for her.
His eyes grew sadder, but she didn’t care. Around them the voices had
started to hush until the pub had silenced around them.
“Look around you, Peyton. Nobody else came back!” Callum raised his
Her heart clenched at the truth he spoke.
“But they did,” she sobbed.
Callum shook his head. “No, they didn’t.”
“But they did when I needed them the most!” Peyton cried before she
wiped the tears from her cheeks, hating the weakness she was showing.
“What?” he breathed.
“They all came back—every single one of them. The town hates you because
you didn’t come back. Everyone came back, Callum. My parents’ funeral—they were all there…except for you!” Her lips trembled as the heat
burned through her chest.
“Peyton,” he said almost apologetically.
“No! That one day. Their funeral. That was the day you could have
redeemed yourself, Callum. I don’t care if you couldn’t love me. I needed you
then. I lost them and you didn’t show. It was their funeral, Callum. They died.
My parents, they loved you. Don’t you get that? They loved you! They wanted me
to forgive you, but I couldn’t, and when they died, I knew I could never
forgive you. You didn’t have to be there for me. You could have been there to
pay your respects or to say goodbye, but you didn’t. The moment I buried them,
I buried any hope of you redeeming yourself.”
Peyton shook her head. “Save it. If you had just come back, I would have
forgiven you for breaking my heart. I don’t care if you couldn’t love me back.
I just needed your support and for you to acknowledge their deaths. They all
came back. The only person who didn’t show was you.” Peyton sniffed and tucked
her hair behind her ear.
That was the day she had vowed she would never let him back into her
life. The last glint of hope had died with the very last breath her parents had
breathed that day all those years ago.
