Life for Yara has not been so easy. She doesn't let people get close. And if they do get close she will ruin it or hurt them before they hurt her. She flees. She seems to take the easy way out that ends up hurting all those in her path. She is a beautiful soul, but perhaps a little lost.
"It's simple for me and complex for them"....."They're...different when I leave and I'm the same."
David, in the meantime seems like the the musician that just goes with the flow and is easy to contend with. He loves everyone and everyone loves him. His heart is big and he cares about others. Maybe to a fault. But he has seen no pain like what Yara can inflict. He needs a muse. Will her pain make him stronger and the musician he's always destined to be?
"I don't want you to leave....I'm drawn to you. I want to be near you."
Yara and David. David and Yara. Their story is filled with love, art, pain and tears. Something about them pulls you in and their journey is unique to them. It is such an original story that I almost don't want to call it a romance. It seems way more realistic and heartfelt and painful on another level than "those traditional romance books". Yara is different. You think she's the strong one, but in reality she is weak and does not like to show how weak she is. Love is not her friend. Perhaps David can change her without getting hurt.
"If there's no one to protect you, you have to protect yourself."
But enter the cyclone that is Petra. She is a woman that stands in the background always waiting. Waiting for the kill. She is silent and persuades those around her. She knows what she wants and she will bide her time until she can get it. But, really...Is this story about her? No. It's about the decisions we make and how we learn and grow from them. How we learn to accept our shortcomings and work with our partner to make ourselves better. How when your soul connects to another it doesn't matter how many years pass, how much pain has been surrendered, you are ALWAYS connected.
"You can't just cut people off when you feel done with them. They're part of your tapestry."
If you're ready for a non-traditional romance that gets you in the feels and has you traveling from Seattle to England to France, then Come. Enjoy the bumpy ride that Yara has set out for us.
"But I can't stop thinking about the ocean. It got in my head. The roar it makes-both peaceful and angry. The way its mood changes every day. The way it washes some things away and drags some things to your feet. It gives and it takes away. It cleanses and kills. It's a fury, but also the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I can't look at a lake the same way again. Lakes are shallow, lakes are predictable, lakes dry up."
^^^This is the story of Atheist Who Kneel and Pray. Love is religion. Protect it! Live it! 5 David Lisey stars!
Yara Phillips is no stranger to heartache. Living a nomadic life, she’s not the sort who gets caught up in love, or jealousy, or commitment. Her time is spent working, traveling, and gaining life experience, until she meets David Lisey.
David is a passionate man who knows what (or who) he wants. He knows he’s never wanted anything more than from the moment he encountered Yara. She’s beautiful, mysterious, and leaves him intrigued.
The more he persists, the more she pushes back, which makes him adore her even more. The musician in him finds the muse in her, and they wind up in quite an intense entanglement. Everything in their world is perfect, and they find themselves making sacrifices they never thought they would. They’re willing to try because they know their time together is different, until the day everything changes.
David has shown Yara what it is to love and be loved in return. All she knows is heartache and loneliness, and time has run out for them.
When their one world diverts on two very different paths, is it possible to find a their way back?
I’ve already expressed how much I loved this book, but let’s understand a few things first.
David is lovely. He’s deep, honest, and loving, and just who Yara needs in her life. He’s the sort of man every girl wants and she’s really lucky to have him.
However, Yara is a creature of habit. She knows how life works for her and she has her routine. David doesn’t fit into her routine. He causes her to stay in one place. He makes her love. He ignites the sparks of jealousy. All things to which she’s not accustomed. At some point, she has to do what’s familiar. Which is why I wanted to spend a chunk of this book yelling at the poor girl.
I didn’t always like Yara. She was selfish, standoffish, and cold. She had David worshipping every fiber of her being, and at times, she seemed detached and far removed from their situation. Then I realized that I see a lot of myself in her. I can’t have anyone or anything screwing with my plans. I’m almost to the point of allergic when it comes to relationships, and all I want in life is to travel. The very things I found myself cringing at her for were the exact qualities I admire in myself. That was a bit of a ninja move on Fisher’s part, but damn, if it didn’t make me take a step back and examine myself after I finished this book. Maybe I need to find a David of my own to help me see things a bit differently. For that, I have to thank Yara (and Fisher).
I adored the journey of this story. I went from the rainy Pacific Northwest, to springtime in London, and even a jaunt over to Paris. I got to discover the beauty and flaws of these characters and then fall head-over-heels for the adventure they took me on… even if it caused a great deal of heartbreak on my end in order to get there!
Atheists who kneel and pray may be the most clever title I've ever read. When you delve in the book, and realize that love is a religion, and you think of the people that fake the feelings... I mean you would need paragraphs just to break down the title and cover. I have so many highlighted quotes. So many highlighted passages that I hope I can reread enough to make me a true believer.
I thought Margo Moon was my soul sister, but apparently I have 2 soul sisters now, whose stories will forever live in my heart.
This is only my third book by Tarryn Fisher. I'd like to say that we get the typical Tarryn Fisher type style of writing. Writing that speaks to the heart. Writing that happens in real life. So this book did not disappoint me in that aspect. I'll definitely be reading another Tarryn Fisher book in the future.
