Regretting You

Regretting You

by Colleen Hoover (Author)

The #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller that People Magazine calls “a poignant, addictive read.”

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us comes a novel about family, first love, grief, and betrayal that will touch the hearts of both mothers and daughters.

Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.

Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.

With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.

While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.

In Colleen Hoover's gripping tale, "Regretting You," we meet Morgan Grant, a young woman grappling with the consequences of a life-altering decision she made as a teenager. Compelled by youthful passion, Morgan becomes pregnant and gives birth to a daughter, Clara, at the tender age of eighteen. However, circumstances force her to give Clara up for adoption, leaving a gaping hole in her heart that she struggles to fill.

Years later, Morgan is a successful career woman with a seemingly perfect life. She has a loving husband, Chris, and a beautiful home. However, the shadow of her past still lingers, and she often finds herself consumed by guilt and regret. She longs to know what happened to Clara and dreams of the day they might be reunited.

Fate takes an unexpected turn when Morgan receives a letter from Clara's adoptive parents. They inform her that Clara is searching for her biological mother and would like to meet her. Morgan is torn between excitement and fear. She is thrilled at the prospect of finally meeting her daughter, but she is also terrified of the pain that might come with it.

As Morgan navigates the tumultuous emotions that accompany this life-changing revelation, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery and forgiveness. She must confront her past and the choices she made, while also coming to terms with the present and the family she has built. This poignant and emotionally charged story explores the complexities of love, loss, and the enduring bonds that connect us to those we cherish.
