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? Will Parker end up being the cure to her pain or will he just push her into a deeper downward spiral? With the faith in the love they once shared be enough to get them through this painful time or will it only cause them more pain and heartache?
This book is heartbreaking and heartwarming. It is moving and touching and I just want to cling to the characters and embrace them. There is no bad person here, just a series of unfortunate events that have altered all of their lives in. There is not one character to hate or be angry at in this book. I want to smother each and every one of them with so much love and I want to help them live for the days they have been given. To help them hold on to the things that are true in life and to never let go of those that hold the most love.
You want an amazing book, this is it. You need a reminder of the power of love, this is it. You want to be reminded of all of the gifts we are given in life, this book is it. It is strength, courage, fear and love. It is one of the most powerful books I have ever read and it doesn’t matter how many times it will be read through time, it will continue to pull and tug at the heart and put so much of life in perspective. It will remind you that each day is a gift, “make it count.”
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!
The journey you experience with Katie makes you feel as though YOU are going through the heartache, confusion, grief, & guilt versus just reading a story about a character. The connection between Katie and Parker is realistic. I love the close relationship between Katie & her brother, Tommy. The work Katie goes through with the horses on the farm is touching and heartfelt.
I can't praise this story enough. It has every emotion imaginable. The cover alone should make you 1-click this book. A.E. paints such a vivid picture that you can see each scene as it unfolds. This is a gift that many seasoned authors lack.
Love this book!
