They decide to run away together. The story ends with a newspaper cutting announcing the birth of their child, Callie Rose, with an announcement from Sephy that her daughter will take her father’s surname of McGregor. Callie Rose then leaves but promises to meet Tobey again.

This does eventually change, but not until about two-thirds into the book. View all posts by geekandbooknerd.

Oh Callum, when she smiles, it’s picnics in Celebration Park and sunsets on our beach and our very first kiss all over again. I grew so attached to Callum’s character in the first book just to have him ripped out from checjmate us but when his real letter was revealed, to see it written under Callum’s perspective as a header, two books later following his death was so hearbreaking but beautiful at the same time!

I’m not an idiot, thanks; I didn’t need that much internal monologuing to figure out how characters would feel. I hope it’s Tobey but checkmatte be sure.
