Book Description

Her world has always been dark, but he might be able to change everything...

Fiercely independent Helen Winters was born completely blind, but she vowed never to let her disability keep her down. She did not expect a traumatic event to devastate her life and force her to drop out of college. Disillusioned by the cruelty of people, Helen retreated from society to live by herself as a reclusive writer in the woods--where no one could ever hurt her again.

When a brilliant young doctor shows up on her doorstep, promising her that his new research can give her the ability to see for the first time, Helen stubbornly refuses. She has learned not to trust anyone, and to rely only on herself. But Dr. Liam Larson will not take no for an answer. He makes it his personal mission to rescue Helen from her loneliness, and bring joy into her world once more--the joy she has denied herself for so long.

When Helen's demons come racing back into her life, threatening to rip her apart and destroy the strength she has carefully rebuilt, Liam is the only one who might be able to save her. Can he reach the broken girl in time, helping her to heal and see the world in a different light? Or will Helen's grief send her spiraling out of control, lost to him forever?

    Review

    "Reading Clarity was like seeing something extraordinary happening, like the first time a bird flies. It was so touching and beautiful and charming, and is absolutely recommended to everyone, young or old." - A Thousand Lives Lived

    "The interaction between Liam and Helen had those incredibly tender undertones, full of restrained longing and attraction... Liam says at some point that "Book are medicine for the soul. They heal the eternal parts of a person." This is such a book and it's a book I wouldn't want to miss." - The Book Enthusiast

    "Loretta Lost, I beseech you, I beg of you, to give me the second book of this series right now... You've written a masterpiece about a woman going through emotional turmoil while standing up for herself and her values in life. I need to see Helen's happy ending." - Symphony of Words

    "Clarity by Loretta Lost was a fun, action packed, story that was steeped in emotion. From frustrating, infuriating, to laugh out loud, to tender. Loretta Lost has a gift for writing human emotions that reach in your heart and bring its characters to life." Mousehead & Tales

    5.0 out of 5 stars A romance not to be taken lightly February 24, 2014
    By Nicolas
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is a book that honestly caught me by surprise, and not because I enjoyed it. While I normally prefer a good old-fashioned bloody adventure (I like to think of it as a guy thing), I don’t mind a good romance every now and then (I can rather be a hopeless romantic). Going into this book, I expected a fairly standard romance plot. The guy and girl meet and fall in love through some odd and random occurrence of the universe forcing them to run head first into each other. There might be a few heroics thrown in to overcome their problems, or perhaps it would take a more comedic route as a documentary of their misadventures. All of the standard, but still satisfying and enjoyable tropes.
    However, this book delivered so much more. The closest thing I can associate reading Clarity to is taking a ride on the biggest roller coaster I can find. The high, light, and funny moments are incredibly funny, and the serious and dark moments can be truly gut wrenching and heart breaking. It really is a rather amazing feat to seamlessly intertwine these two radically different aspects of light and dark into a story. A less skilled author may have been able to make a coherent story out of this, but here the humor and serious tones seem to fit together perfectly. This is a promising indication of Loretta’s skill.
    Clarity will make you laugh until you cry, cry until you are afraid, and find the ability to smile in your fear. The characters are memorable and layered; simplistic in their natures and complex in their interactions. Helen is a strong leading lady and gives a fairly positive view of the life of a blind woman without trying to idealize it or turn her into inspiration porn. Liam is a nice guy that shows charm and promise for being a strong leading man.

    5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING and STARTLING March 2, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    It took me a bit to pick this book back up after the rape scene. But I did, because I trust Loretta to bring some positive to an horrid event. I absolutely love Helen and Liam, they are so cute together. I cannot wait for the next installment, especially with the way Clarity ended! I can say with absolute honesty that Helen's distrust of people is quite common of visually impaired people, because my husband has total vision loss, he does not even have optic nerves anymore. And I have worked with a lot of blind people for over thirty years. You really nailed the insecurities of a lot of blind people Loretta. Thank you for an exceptionally well written novella. Looking forward to what's next for Helen!!!!

    Clarity brings to light the long term affects a senseless crime can have on an individual. The topics covered by Loretta Lost are heart-wrenching and life changing.

    I found this book to be an outstanding reminder on how lucky I am to have my sight. I sometimes forget about the little details that a blind person would not know. Things that seem so simple like colors, shapes, etc. are things I have taken for granted, but after reading Clarity I will now appreciate greatly. Thank you for that.

    There were parts of this story that made me hold my breath, laugh out loud, and at times shake my head. The story was well written, but seemed to drag on in parts. I understand the reasons behind the cliffhanger ending, but I feel it could’ve been avoided by cutting out some of the lengthy scenes. There are so many loose ends at the conclusion of book one and it would’ve been nice to have one part at least partially finished. Knowing that book two is available helps with the frustration from the ending of book one. I am anxious to dive in and have some of my lingering questions answered.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Packs a Punch March 12, 2014
    By Sam
    Format:Paperback
    "Fiercely independent Helen Winters was born completely blind, but she vowed never to let her disability keep her down. She did not expect a traumatic event to devastate her life and force her to drop out of college. Disillusioned by the cruelty of people, Helen retreated from society to live by herself as a reclusive writer in the woods-where no one could ever hurt her again."

    This book starts off with a rape that is just heartbreaking. The rape itself was not written only what led up to it but that was enough. Being able to see is something we take for granted but this author has the ability to make us feel what Helen is feeling, being blind, the panic at being lost, the relief that someone who sounds nice is there to help her only to find herself being savagely attacked. I literally got chills when he says "The things I'm going to do to you."

    The middle of the book is more light hearted when two doctors find her at her retreat and convince her that they might be able to make her see. Owen is such a goof ball and Liam is so sweet. I was laughing out loud at the beginning of their car trip.

    I had already guessed where the end of the book was going but reading it was far more devastating, because once again I felt everything Helen was feeling. I know that some had issues with the cliffhanger but I honestly feel like there was no better place to stop this book then where she did. It may be a short book but believe me when I say it packs quite a punch. I will be re-reading it slower this time to fully appreciate it.

    I received this from the author for an honest review.
