I’ve just fell in love with a book. I have a list of books that I hold in the ‘fell in love’ category, this is going in.
What a deep and emotional book. A tug at your heartstrings, pass me the pillow and tissues, stare into space in awe, hold my face and wipe my tears book.
I loved Reagan’s character. I felt her pain, her joy, her heartbreak, her happiness, her loneliness. I loved Matthew’s character too. To live with an impairment that many of us take for granted and not let it affect you, it was amazing. It’s a true testament to an author who can make you feel the characters. Ryals did a brilliant job of sucking me in.
Reagan’s mothers mental health issues touched a nerve with me, I used to work with the elderly. 80% of the elderly residents I worked with had some form of Dementia, which we all know can be debilitating. To see a person lose their fight against their own mind is heartbreaking. The way this was touched on in the book? Heartwarming.
I don’t really know how best to describe this book. I only know how it made me feel. Happy? Yes. Sad? Yes. Heartbroken? At times. Love? Yes. I felt all those things and more. From beginning to end I was so caught up, I was blind to everything else. I loved it.
I’m going to leave it there, I don’t know what else to say.
Happy Reading ☺️
