My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Well, I’ve got to say this is a first. I’ve read a lot of books that make me smile. I’ve read a lot of books that make me laugh. I’ve read a lot of books that make me cry. I’ve read a lot of books that make my heart feel like it’s breaking. But I’ve never read a book where one tiny little word made me feel like I was going to throw up, where a small two-letter word made me feel like my entire world had just shattered, where one puny horrible word could completely devastate me.
Oh, trust me – up until that point I read this entire book – tears, sighs and all – with a smile on my face. Because this story, this love, these men – they are so much a part of me – that sometimes I feel like they are me. But I really hit the wall when I got to that one small word.
Powering through that moment was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. But I did it, because they did it. I did it for them. I had to.
Because sometimes – if you’re strong enough, if your love is strong enough – you can make it through the most difficult times until you get to something even better, something even more beautiful, something that’s even more perfect that it was. That’s what happens in this book, if you’re brave enough. Power through that pain, push your way through that hurt – and just see, just feel, what’s waiting for you on the other side.
