My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Heres the thing. Going into a book that has no HEA, that has no sex, that deals with a devastating disease, was intimidating, to say the least. In all actuality I was scared sh&$less to read this. Not only for the content but also because I was afraid I wouldn’t like it. I was wrong on so many levels. Was this book hard? Absolutely. One of the hardest books I’ve ever read. But it was also so damned enlightening that I feel lucky to have read it. Yes, this was a book about a horrible disease, yes, it was about death, yes it was about losing who you are and yes, there wasn’t any sex. But, you know what? All of that was secondary to the beautiful, amazing love that was weaved throughout this story like a golden thread in a complex tapestry. You couldn’t not see it. You couldn’t not feel it. Take a chance. Let yourself try something different. Your heart will thank you in the end. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy.
