About the Author
EDITOR: I was born a bibliophile, but it wasn't until high school that I discovered my knack for editing and decided I wanted to edit fiction. I love the feel of a book in my hands, and I may or may not be one of those crazy book sniffers. In my spare time (which is in short supply), I enjoy playing board games and card games with my husband and two teen boys, perusing antique shops, and, of course, reading. What I love most about editing is cultivating relationships with authors. I feel fortunate to be able to share in their creative vision as an editorial partner. I am inspired by their dedication and I enjoy helping them achieve their goals. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

The heart-wrenching struggles of the MC are <em>real</em>, are <em>powerful</em> and relatable even as I've never experienced what she was going through. Well done! The straight-forward telling of events, without reason or excuse or fluffed meanderings of explanation, make this experience perfect for the reader. I was <em>in</em> this story, and while I typically shy away from "real life" tellings (I'm a fantasy/sci fi girl as I like my fiction <em>fiction</em>) I would recommend this book to everyone. I even ravaged the pages we're given to tease us for book two. Unnecessary, by the way- I'm already hooked!
Happy Reading :)
From the very start, you’re thrown into our storyteller’s two realities, but without being confused as to which chapter belongs to which world. Taya DeVere eases you into both, while at the same time you have a feeling you’re in the middle of a brewing storm. This doesn’t, however, mean that the readers will have to face indecipherable situations and backgrounds; or characters and their traits. The author develops all of them effortlessly and makes you pick favorites (or least favorites perhaps!). Pretty soon, you’ll find yourself craving to learn more about both realities, and maybe you’ll take a sneak peak of the next chapter just because you can’t wait to find out what happened to a certain barn worker.
As conflicting as the two realities may seem, they do have something in common: humor. If ever I wondered why people kept on using ‘lol’ to express themselves, now I know. I laughed out loud so many times and was glad that there were ‘comic relief’ moments to take the edge off an otherwise stressful situation. As it happens to be, now I want to make a t-shirt with ‘I thirsty’ written in block capitals :)
To cut the long story short - the book is definitely a must-read, but you have to be prepared to be shocked, amazed, amused, exhilarated and saddened on more than one occasion. After all, there are two realities, both of which offer different opportunities and play a pivotal role in our storyteller’s future. Which one will she choose? Well… The narrative ends with a couple of cliffhangers, so I'll definitely be getting Book 2 asap <3
The story has both funny and touching moments, sometimes making you almost skip words to get to know what is going to happen next. Towards the end the two plot lines thicken nicely with unexpected twists, and the ending is just beautiful.. until you realise you now have to wait for the next parts. I bet they are worth the wait though.
The author’s use of a narrative style made it possible and more enjoyable to truly express the difficulties of two such different realities. With each page I wanted to learn more about the environment, whether in her native country or in the United States. Her use of humor to express her character’s grasp of the American lifestyle and language was so amusing but her writing allowed one to understand the anxiety beneath the wit. I felt embedded into two very distinct cultures through the author’s descriptions of life, whether working in a grocery or at a horse farm, or living in isolation or finding solace in alcohol.
I was amazed in that, for a first novel, the author was able to so clearly describe the torture a mind and heart can feel when dealing with depression. She leads the reader through the depths of despair to a place where you begin to see the clouds dissipate.
The characters from both realities are so vivid and the author has a true talent in giving enough detail of each for the reader to feel they would know them immediately if they met on the street. The main character is such a brave soul especially when faced with all her life challenges. I am so glad this is a series of books and I am aching to read more about this amazing character and her life journey.
