Four years later, Bryn returns to Savannah to live in her childhood home. Slowly, she begins to let the people of her past back into her life.

Tyler has secrets of his own. Secrets connected to the death of Bryn's father. Secrets Tyler didn't even know he kept.

Bryn is finally returning to her childhood home in Savannah, after living in new york for the past four years. Unbearable heartbreak caused her to up and leave, the loss of her only parent and the boy who promised he would love her forever. It's time to come home, to the life she left behind and the empty house that she can't bare to sell. What she didn't plan on, was Tyler.

Tyler has always loved Bryn. Four years ago, he left her in the park, having broken her heart. He was leaving, his family, including Bryn's best friend Charlotte, moving to the city. He offered her no explanation, no promises and both brother and sister left, and didn't look back at the poor broken girl they had left behind. 

As word spreads upon Bryn's return, she knows it's only a matter of time before she runs into Tyler. He returned one year after having left. This time Bryn demands to know why he left her, why he never contacted her after her father died, and why he now wants to be a part of her life again. 

Without his knowledge, he may just break her heart all over gain.

Grab the tissues, you're going to need them.
Bryn broke my heart, and left me with silent tears more often than not. Her story of loss devastating, but somehow she pulls herself together  and leaves her heartbreak behind to start a new life. After Tyler, she's never dated in the four years since and still pines for the loss of the love of her life. Once she returns to her childhood home, the story is told from dual point of view, from both Bryn and Tyler's perspective.

As far as most recent contemporary young or new adults are, More Than You Know is one to read. It's an emotional, feel good story with a beautiful ending passage. This is Alexandria Rhodes' debut novel and she's already perfected the art of the written word.
