It isn't often that I read books where I actually need to put them down and come back to reality. I was so taken by Katie's story, I felt like I WAS Katie. Every scene was so emotionally intense, some happy, some sad, that I was on such a roller coaster throughout the whole book.
A.E. Woodward has a superior writing style that trumps her peers. Every scene was so put together, and the relationships between the characters were entirely thought out, weaving this intense web of emotions, thoughts and feelings between each person.
I've already recommended this book to all my family and friends, and even ordered a paper copy to ship to my friend in England. I want to share Katie's story with everyone!
My love affair with this book began many months ago. A friend on Facebook Beta read for it, and was talking about how phenomenally heart-wrenching (those might be my words, love her little black heart) it was. Knowing she was an angst masochist just as I was, I knew I was in for a treat! Well, let’s just say that not only was she correct in her assertions, but I have had to now wait sixteen hours to start this review as it has left me in what can be summed up perfectly in one simple word: RAW. One simple, three letter word that will pack an emotional punch to you like no other. You know how some people use different books as a scale for how hard they cried in others? Yeah… Kismet burst through the door when no one was looking and officially took its rightful place upon that scale. I am STILL reeling, the shock having not worn off yet. This book is sure to leave an imprint on your soul, as so few can.
~ In a heap in the hallway, I cry for him, for me, for them. Because I seem to be the only one who realizes that there is no saving any of us.
We are broken. ~
There is so much I want to say that I don’t even know where to begin. I have to tread lightly because there are so many twists and turns in this book, just when you think it’s over, Woodward emotionally ***ch slaps you with another round. I suppose the only way to start is from the beginning.
Katie was dealt a shi**y hand in life; there is no easy way around that. Anxiety has ruled her entire life, always waiting for the other shoe to drop. My heart just broke reading about her as a child but in the same breathe it soared, for I knew the support she had around her.Read more ›
So what's is about Katie has finally found her forever, with Michael and her new born baby, she finally experiences what pure, unadulterated love is, until an accident takes it all away from her in the blink of an eye and she is left a window, childless, alone. Returning to her childhood home, broken, defeated and alone, Katie has come to accept that this is what her life is now, darkness, grief, pain, so consuming, so overwhelming that the further she retreats into herself, the more difficult it is to find her way out of the emptiness that surrounds her. When Parker McKenzie waltzes back into her life, she is again reminded of all the pain and all that she has endured.
Kismet broke me in a way that so few books have, the visceral reaction I had to reading Woodwards words, left it's footprints on my heart, it touched me in such a profound way that I felt it in my bones, in my soul. You're probably wondering why a book I reacted to so strongly I would rate so highly, but isn't this why we read, to escape our own reality if only for a little while, to FEEL something, and my God...I FELT everything reading Kismet.Read more ›
The words touched my heart, broke my heart, healed my heart and made me believe that everyone has a purpose. We may not know what our destiny is, but we know we are here to do something. It is Kismet.
Katie’s world ended the day of the accident. She was the only survivor. She lost her husband, her daughter and the baby she was carrying. She lost everything. There was no reason that she should be here. The accident took everyone she loved from her and she was left with nothing. She didn’t deserve to be here. So she did the one thing she knew how to do, deprive herself of everything. Leave herself feeling that loss day after day. She shut down. She stopped communicating.
Now she finds herself back in her hometown with her parents and brother. But what she didn’t want was Parker to be around. He was the reason she found this other life. He was the reason she swore she would never return. He was the reason she only had half of a heart. The other half crashed around her when she lost her family.
But will she be able to break free from the stiffening silence?Read more ›
