This book really makes you think about the loved ones in your life, who we all sometimes take for granted, and what would happen if something were to happen to them; how would we move on, would we love again, forgive?
For the not so good, in my opinion, the cover. I am not one to point things out but ...there is a but I have seen so many authors make this mistake and then re-work a cover. To me it doesnt scream emotional romance. While the girl on the cover is ok, she doesnt seem even old enough to be Skylar. Like a lot of other bloggers will say that yes people do judge a book by a cover and this is a failing grade. People will find it hard to get past the cover to the really hearty and emotional book that this is.
"Death comes so suddenly, out of nowhere. In the morning, you wake up in the arms of the one you love, that night you go to bed all by yourself. You remain in a state of shock asking yourself questions like 'Did that really happen? Is he really dead? He can't possibly be dead, can he?' And you reassure yourself with statements like 'He's just away on a business trip,' or 'Just another late night at the office, that's all.' "
There isn't much more I can say about this book except to recommend you read it and to give it as many stars as I can - 5. I hope this author is around for a long, long time.
"During this time, you see friends and long-lost relatives you hadn't seen since you were a child, and it hits you that nothing really matters: not those five extra pounds you were trying to lose, the back porch you've been meaning to repaint, that new show you forgot to record, those new designer shoes you've been lusting for. How could any of it matter in the face of death? You're faced with the feeling that your life, your work, all your accomplishments are obsolete and meaningless when seen in the finality of death. All those things can't save you from it."
Once you finish reading the book, the author invites you to her website for a final chapter that you won't want to miss.
"I'm still upset that you were taken away from, but it's no longer the living-breathing kind of hate that eats away at you. It's the kind of anger that just wishes you could still be here. I can see now that your death was an accident. No one meant for it to happen."
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
