The Jewel Box is a love story that is told over a few decades. It tells the story of single-mum Cherie, who meets Gabriel in a bar she is working in. This begins their rollercoaster of a love affair, destined to be together but life keeps pulling them apart. As the years go by something keeps pulling them together but will it is strong enough not to tear them both apart.
This is a beautiful storyline, a romantic love story that is not too mushy, true to life and a really good read. I liked the characters and I liked the way the story was set over the years, like in the film The Way We Were. It is really well written and I liked the way the story does a full-circle at the end.
