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!
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. Sorrow, despair, helplessness, emptiness, but I also felt joy, and contentment, and a sense of hope so powerful and so strong, that I took time to look at my life, to truly appreciate what I have, and to be thankful, and for someone's words to bring you to your knee's, to make you stop and take stock of your life, then for me an author has not only done their job but they have exceeded every literary dream I have when I sit down and open to the first page.
The sheer elegance of Woodward's words, her ability to connect with the reader, to grab you by the collar and to demand you sit up and take notice, to hold you captive as she weaves a story of hurt and pain, and ultimately love and hope held me spellbound as I savoured every single line, writing this review is bittersweet, it's been eight long months in the process, trying to deliver something that gives you some idea of how deeply I connected with Kismet, I am sad that it's over, but so unbelievably thankful for the journey.
