"You can’t claim a wild thing,” she said to Brenda. “The moment you do, a part of it dies. To keep it wild, to keep it alive, you must always keep it free. All you can do is claim yourself. And sometimes, if you’re very lucky, the wild thing will invite you to stay."
It's almost as though there is so much depth to this book that I can't quite reach it, I can't grasp it. Do I love it, yes, but at the same time I feel confused by it and I feel like I still crave answers. It's so deep that I can't get deep enough to be fulfilled by it. Honestly how do you rate a book like that. How do you say it's 5 stars or 4 or even 3 stars when you know it is something you will never be able to label, nothing you could ever cage for long enough to determine what your true feelings are.
I can say that I wanted to climb into this book. I wanted to be on the outside watching as the Hero and Heroine find their way, to watch what will happen not just what has happened. I can say that I am not ready to leave them, I need to be the fly on the wall, the spirit whispering to them that the can believe in that (not a religious faith, just so there is not confusion) 'faith'. Yet, I can also say that I had to walk away several times from the book to process, that it took me a longer than expected time to read it because it is written in a slow pace and so my reading of it was slow. I can say that I on some level can't comprehend everything I read, that I need someone to sit down and talk this book through with me chapter by chapter. That I didn't always understand the reasons, the complexities, and yet...yes another YET through all of it I loved this book.
These characters will make you think, you will either be left feeling as though everything you just read is hogwash and off or you will be left wondering why we don't all live our lives with the same freedom. Why we let ourselves be controlled by others and the world around us instead of just living the way our heart leads us. The other thing you might question is the belief that this is a love story. Is it? I honestly do not know. I think that there is definitely a story of love there, the story of loving yourself, the story of allowing someone else to love you, yes, but this is not a traditional love story. I am uncertain what to call it. A motivational guide hidden inside a fictional romance? A self-help book wrapped up in a love story? It is most assuredly more than what you will expect. A psychological thriller...okay maybe that's a stretch but maybe not.
I can say that you will love these characters even if you can't quite fully understand them. Lydia is the wind, she is a wild heart that is good and pure, a sprite that follows that wild heart of hers even when it means she struggles to connect to the world around her. Remington, he is a lost boy (man), he's tried for too long to control that wild heart of his (unlike Lydia who has allowed her to rule her) and in the process lost his center. He is someone you would look at from the outside and want to be because it seems that he has everything and yet the truth is he has very little because he's closed his true self off from the world, he's only been giving them the piece that he thinks they deserve. While those two are the main focus, there is also Merrick and Brenda and I kind of want there stories too, especially Merrick's. I need to know that he finds his happiness, I need to know that they ALL find their happiness because when this book ends while you get your HEA I can't promise you that you will know that happiness will be where everyone lands.
This is a book you are going to want to take your time with so be prepared to shut out the world and bring a carafe of tea/coffee not just your normal cup. You may question the book as you go along but I urge you to just keep going it's a slow read but a worthy one. You will definitely question life when you finish but you will know that there is something incredibly special about this book and you will be happy you didn't give up.
The characters needed to absorbed to give them their worth. Remington is so much more than a pretty face. He keeps going making me wonder what he was running from and would he realize it in time.
Lydia was born to run. She has the ability, knowledge to be anything she wants but she was never taught how to sit still long enough to earn it. She is a vagabond without a home base.
In Between the Earth and Sky is Remington and Lydia's journey to find the meaning of life. Along the way I learned somethings about myself. This book is worth a second read, in a cabin with a cup of coffee and pastries. Peace, quiet and love.
I had to stop at so many points and think about what I had just read, then reread it again. And again.
This is an amazing story. I know the word “amazing” has many meanings and is tossed around very liberally to describe events, people, feelings, things, books... the list is long. In this instance it means soul searing, imprints in the heart, thought provoking and at times life altering in the sense it settles a thought, shifts your understanding, showing things in a different color and light. It makes you feel more than you did before you read the words, grasped the concept, felt the understanding.
I’ve read all of this author’s books so far. Each story as been so much MORE. This one? Nailed. It. Perfect.
Drops the mike. BOOM.
The depth of this story, beyond the romantic aspect, had me reflecting and falling in love with life. This is a story about adventure, love, and one’s own journey. These themes all come together in an incredible way, showing life’s messiness and beauty. Humorous, profound, and emotional, this story effortlessly became one of my all-time favorite books.
Well, I devoured the book in less than 24 hrs, so I'd say YES to both questions! She noticed all the little details and found a way to fit them together and develop an amazing story! And Lydia might be my new favorite female. She's so unique and funny. I love the way she sees Rem and the way she calls him out on his BS. The thing that stands out the most for me is their friendship. It's so rare and so deep and so comfortable. I found myself reading just to get a taste of how it feels to be in a relationship like theirs.
