An Intriguing Tale of Loss, Loyalities and Love
on November 1, 2011
Come Back to Me is a story of loss, love and loyalties. When Beau leaves for Iraq as part of a photography assignment, he promises Tess he will come back to her, and when Tess hears the news of Beau's death, she holds tight to that promise. She refuses to give up on him and doesn't believe he's dead, especially when she is carrying their child. But when she meets Louie and at the insistence of her family and friends, she doesn't know whether to give up on Beau and move on with her life or still hold him to his promise of returning.
Beau wakes up in the middle of the desert in Iraq with two Iraqi women mending him back to health. He doesn't know how he will get home, nor does he know if he'll survive the trip with the women to get out of Iraq. What he does know is that he isn't giving up on going back home to Tess. She is what keeps him going.
Does Tess give up on Beau? Does Beau make it back home? What happens to these characters? I think these are answers you should find out on your own when you read, Come Back to Me.
I'm not lying when I say that I lost sleep the week I was reading this book. I stayed up way too late trying to find out what happened next. I neglected my own writing in order to read the tale woven by Melissa.
