Publisher's Summary

Headstrong Ruben Harper has yet to meet an obstacle he can't convert into a speed bump. He's used to getting what he wants from girls, but when he develops a fascination for a man, his wooing skills require an upgrade. After months of persuasion, he scores a dinner date with Henry Normand that morphs into an intense weekend. The unexpected depth of their connection scares Ruben into fleeing.

Shy, cautious Henry, Ruben's former high school history teacher, suspects he needs a wake-up call, and Ruben appears to be his siren. But when Ruben bolts, Henry is left struggling to find closure. Inspired by his conversations with Ruben, Henry begins to write articles about the memories stored in everyday objects. The articles seduce Ruben with details from their weekend together and trigger feelings too strong to avoid. As Henry's snowballing fame takes him out of town and further out of touch, Ruben stretches to close the gaps that separate them.

    "Amazing!"
    What does Daan Stone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Beautifully narrated!

    5+ Stars. One of the best books I've read in a long time. I won't go into details (since others have already done the lengthy reviews) so there's no point in rehashing. You'll either love or hate the way this book is crafted. I loved it. Every single page is a joy to read. Gorgeous writing, nothing felt over the top, the dramatic scenes served a purpose, and Henry's intensely emotional story broke my heart several times. Ruben, although young and inexperienced, surprised me in a good way (when he finally got his act together) and the aha moment was worth the long journey. I can't say enough about the feels in this book. Highly recommended.

    P.S. This audiobook is beautifully narrated by Daan Stone.

    Story
    "A beautiful heart wrenching but heartwarming story"
    Where does Everyday History rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's up in the top 20 or so for bittersweet, angsty stories. (I read a lot)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Everyday History?

    I love the connection between Ruben and Henry and the apple pie. I don't think I will look at apple pie again without think of this beautiful love story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Henry reads his notes at the nominee conference, and Ruben is telling his story about his family photos and the space in them. I nearly bawled my eyes out. I could practically see Henry's face when he read what was in his files, his reactions, to that and Ruben all at once. My heart ached for him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A stunningly beautiful romance of coming of age, coming out and getting what you want.


    Any additional comments?

    I will admit the story started off a bit slow for me.The way each chapter is headed with The Historian, The Explorer then broken down to each one at first hindered me then I found it easier to follow the story. I also liked the short broken up chapters, that kept me interested as well.
    Daan Stone has a very dreamy, smooth voice that is quite mesmerizing and charming. He gave the story a very poetic ring.

    I will say this is a beautiful romance, with a bittersweet quality to it. Have some tissues on hand.
