It Ends With Us: Interval House Book Discussion

Tuesday, October 17 at 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for an in-person book discussion of It Ends With Us, by Colleen Hoover.

It Ends With Us is a “brave and heartbreaking novel that digs its claws into you and doesn’t let go, long after you’ve finished it” (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author) about a workaholic with a too-good-to-be-true romance can’t stop thinking about her first love—soon to be a major motion picture starring Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni.

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. And when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life seems too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

This book discussion will be led by Emily Cintorino, Director of Community Programs at Interval House.  Having arrived at Interval House in 2022, Emily leads the charge on community advocacy—specifically by overseeing support groups, law enforcement partnerships, and follow-up services for survivors. As liaison to the communities we serve, Emily attends neighborhood meetings and events to raise awareness about Interval House’s services and ignite collaborations that result in improved outcomes for clients. Prior to joining the team at Interval House, Emily worked at Prudence Crandall Center in New Britain as a community counselor and counseling services coordinator, where she worked one-on-one with clients and ran weekly support groups.
