There is much to be said about Tania Ramos' novel, "Be Still." It is a well thought out and well planned novel that actually weaves two interconnecting stories into one.

The book revolves around Jack Silver. A father, haunted by the memory of his wife who died somewhat mysteriously many years ago and his son Travis, who has held a long-time grudge against his father, blaming him for his mother's death. Add in the cute Dr. Chris Amity who has been like a daughter to Jack though has always been seen by Travis as somewhat of a leach to his father. However, it will be Travis and Chris who will need to form a bond when tragedy strikes and understand the truths that have been hidden for so long.

Over the course of the novel, the author tells a story that blends a mix of inspiration, the afterlife and romance and turns into a convincing tale of redemption. While I did feel that the storyline around Jack became a little tedious and drawn out at times the story surrounding Travis and Chris kept me going on to the end which, while I won't give it away, was a perfect little touch that made me smile. "Be Still" is part medical drama, part romance novel with a hint of "What Dreams May Come." While this genre is not my norm, I did enjoy this very much and recommend it highly.

Let me start by saying that, despite the genre of this book being the polar opposite of what I usually read, I really enjoyed Be Still. The plot was engaging and well thought out, the characters relatable and believable. It's a tragic story that's at the same time uplifting, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes the romance/drama genre.

I'm going to be honest, I wasn't the hugest fan of Jack Silver. He basically gives up on living after his wife dies, withdrawing from the world and from his son, all of which really irked me. I have a hard time connecting with parent characters who emotionally abandon their children. At the same time, I totally understand why he did what he did because his plot arc was beautifully written, so even though I didn't really like the character, Tania still got me to sympathize with him.

On the other hand, I loved Travis and Christina. Their romance is sweet, and realistic, and flawed, because when does love ever go smoothly? I actually found myself caring more about Jack because I was seeing him through Travis and Christina's eyes, and it was bittersweet because their shared grief over his impending death is one of the things that brings them together.

I quite enjoyed Tania's writing style. It flowed nicely, and it was very easy for me to lose myself in the story. One criticism I would make is that the description sometimes got a little flowery, but for all I know that's the norm for this genre of writing. It certainly didn't detract from the story, it just made me pause and think, "Goodness, that's a lot of adverbs".

All in all, a wonderful read, and one that I would definitely recommend!

BE STILL is the venture of a love story that overcomes hatred through transcending death and time!

Throughout the tragic process of Dr. Jack Silver dying of Lou Gehrig's disease, his son, attorney Travis Silver, is forced to probe his family's past to discover his own identity, and in the process, overcome the pain of his relationship with his father to be free to find and marry the love of his life, Dr. Chris Amity.

Travis, as well as his father, traverse an arena of multiple tragic experiences from the real world through the metaphysical and into the spiritual. The scenes invite the reader to see into the divine of the characters as well as their demons, and sort out the differences between objectivity and subjectivity to discover love. It's a challenging task that author Tania Ramos has undertaken, but with her sensitive talent and perceptive nature, she successfully paints a romantic portrait with colorful characters and vivid imagery.

You'll enjoy the onion-peeling mystery of the family's past that reveals poignant clues to prepare for a critical life-support decision that will determine Travis' future as well as the fate of his father. The sub-story of Jack's past life with his wife Shannon, daughter Holly, and son Travis counterpoints with Travis' own story as Jack's son and Chris' suitor. The compared and contrasted virtues and vices of the sub-story enrich the primary story in well-orchestrated detail.

Additionally, the counterpoint timbre and tone of opposing values between Travis and his love, Chris, resonate between melody and cacophony forming echos against the father-and-son's story of love and anger.

As the title implies, we must BE STILL to find the story's truth . . . which requires patience.
