Till Page and Eliza Reynolds are forgotten kids, the ones that slip through the cracks because no grown up loves them. While trying to escape their realities, they happen to meet. The meeting changes the course of both of their lives. They become each other's person. For people who have never had someone in their corner, it's like stepping from the darkness into the light. The loneliness is removed. For both life continues to be a struggle, but they know they have the other to lean on.
The story follows them through being teens, adults, friends, lovers and things in between. I fell for both characters. Their personalities are perfect. *Alert* Nothing is annoying. They are salt of the Earth people. Life dumps so much on them and especially at such young ages, but they keep plodding along. The ups and downs are tremendous.
The writing is exceptional. It has the most heartfelt moments, the sad tears, the happy tears, the sexy, the touching...and much more rolled in. Just thinking about the playfulness between the leads and the family aspect with them and the side characters makes me feel so sentimental. I'm still invested in the story. It really 'took me there.' If these people were real, I could just sit around and watch them all day.
I could ramble on and on about my passion for this book, but I won't. And I'm not giving away any more details on it either. This story needs to be experienced without any spoilers. Every reader needs the full intensity. I am ardently waiting for the next book.
I hated seeing those faces. I might have only been in love with one Page man, but I absolutely loved all of the Page boys.
Both Eliza and Till didn't have it very easy growing up. They're from a poor neighborhood, Eliza was invisible for her parents, and Till did whatever it took to take care of his little brothers. The only good part from their youth was each other. They kind of lived in their own fantasy world, until they had to grow up and live in reality. The time for escaping was over, but letting go of that fantasy wasn't easy for Till.
We follow their journey through the next couple of years, when the situation for Till in a way becomes even more difficult. Boxing has become his solution for dire financial situation, and hope for a decent future. That though becomes all on the line, when he slowly starts losing his hearing. He will need to make some tough decisions, but luckily Eliza is always there by his side.
There is a lot of heartbreak and drama in this story. Personal, financially, love, family drama, it is all there and at times very depressing. It's definitely not a go happy story. Most of the time though I felt a certain detachment from the characters. I had trouble really connecting with them, and it just felt like I was reading a story without becoming emotionally attached. It's only towards the end that the pace picks up and there is more action. Most of the story just follows the daily lives of Till and Eliza.Read more ›
This emotion packed romance had my heart pounding the entire way through. I couldn't take my eyes off the pages, and I couldn't keep the tissues out of my hands. I laughed. I cried. I sighed. I cried some more. My heart broke but Ms. Martinez gently put it back together with the epic love between Till and Eliza. FIGHTING SILENCE is all about the fights we all face in life. Whether you are fighting for your family, your own dreams, your life, anything is possible when you have the constant love and support from that one person who will never let you fall. Till and Eliza are in the fight of their lives, fighting for the love that they know, deep down they deserve. They will go through Hell and back for each other and for that love. No one, not even themselves, can stand against that.
This journey that the author took me on with this story, is one I will never forget.Read more ›
