An Absolute Must Read! Endless number of stars***********
I am in book heaven right now, as well as am suffering a major book hangover! This was a lovely, heart warming, heart-wrenching, emotional read. It was so beautifully written that I felt like I was living this story right along with the characters. I was their ghost following alongside and keeping watch. I would yell at them to do the right thing, make the right choices, I would laugh along with them…and I cried with them, I sobbed with them. I loved them. This is a beautiful and touching story about the effects of war on the soldier and their families. Fin and Ryan are examples of a true love story. There are so many beautiful thoughts and quotes that I nearly highlighted the whole book.
“I want you, Fin. So damn much I can’t sleep from it. I lie in bed at night and I dream of my lips on yours, my mouth tasting every inch of you.” “I’d give almost anything to wake up to that very morning.” “When I’m near you I’m consumed by you-your smile, your eyes, your heart. Even though we’ve never been together, you’ve always been mine, and even if I never get to keep you, you’ll still be mine.”
These are just 6 of all of the beautiful sentences in this book. When I got to the last sentence I cried. Not because it is sad, but because it was over. I know I can’t begin to do this book justice with my words, this author has more talent in her pinky than I have in my entire body! But please, don’t pass up this book.
