From the beginning to the end of this book I was smiling through tears, these characters were broken in the most beautiful way. I could relate more to them than I thought I would. Although, I've never had any of these things happen to me to the extreme it did for these characters I was completely empathic towards them. I wanted to take them in my arms and snuggle them to my bosom. Let them know that it would all be okay and to keep pushing.
It was obvious to me from the beginning that this story was deeply personal to Meghan and she is a very brave soul to put her heart on the line like this. Her letter at the end was nearly my undoing, but since I was reading in public I was able to keep my tears at bay.
If you are looking for a truly honest story that help you see life from a new perspective while ripping your heart out and falling truly madly in love with the characters, the beautifully broken souls buy this book. And Prove Your Existence.
Quinn is amazing. She did something amazing with these four characters. If you follow my reviews, which I’m sure there are very few lol. You would know that I do not like more than two POV’s because it becomes confusing. But this is the first time, that I loved it. I loved all the characters. Hollyn, Jace, Daisy, and Carter. I cried, I laughed through this whole story, their story. In all honesty, It really didn’t help this cold I have. Since I can barely breathe through my nose.
Their struggles, the realness that leaped off the pages. I rooted for them. I almost felt like I was this cheerleader on the sidelines. And god the ending. I’m not going to say what happens because that would be rude of me. But it brought a whole new perspective. The book is more than these fictional characters. The author poured her heart and soul into this. And it really shows.
Overall, If I could give this book more than Five Stars, I would. There is no rating that can define, Dear Life. It’s on its own pedestal.
Holly married Eric, the love of her life, at a young age. After two years of marriage Eric tragically loses his life in the line of duty as a firefighter. Six months later and life for Hollyn has stopped. She cannot find her way to stop the pain and grief she's left with after losing her soulmate.
Jace is a young Major League Baseball player that had an amazing first year of professional ball with all of the 'perks'. Until one day when Rebecca (the bartender from Phoenix) shows up on his doorstep about six months pregnant and telling him the baby will be his responsibility once she is born. Jace makes the hardest, most unselfish decision to give his baby girl up for adoption so she would not have to live in the foster care system as he did growing up.
Daisy grew up in a very sheltered home with only her grandmother in her life. She was even homeschooled her whole life so her grandmother is also her only friend.
Carter lost his parents at a very young age to drugs and was left to his Uncle Chuck to raise him. However, Uncle Chuck was not the nurturing type. He was hard on Carter. After lending Carter the money to go to school to become a professional chef he made him work off his school debt in his own kitchen at his Italian restaurant. Feeling extreme anger and acting out on it at work, his uncle added the stipulation that he join the Dear Life program or he would add more time to what he already had to work to pay off the debt.
These four strangers would unknowingly bond in the most profound way. They would learn to face their issues rather than runaway, but will they sink or swim? Can they overcome the obstacles that life has thrown their way?
DEAR LIFE is one of those books that while you're reading it, you're emotionally all over the map cursing the author for making you have this emotional breakdown when their books usually are the type to make you laugh after a rough day. Meghan Quinn's ears had to have been red and burning with as much as I was yelling at her in my head. However, by the end of this book, I was loving her that much MORE for showing a different facet of her writing ability. This book made me open my eyes in so many ways and sing her praises to so many people about this book. I feel everyone should have the privilege of experiencing this book!!
