It's a bumpy ride for these two as they get to know each other again and try to right the wrongs of the past. I really liked Darla and Theo and felt for both of them as the story progressed. It did seem as though the fates were conspiring to keep them apart in the past, and the odds were against them in the present as well since there were so many misunderstandings and secrets between them. Of course, I was rooting for them to work through all of their issues because I wanted to see little Stella (the cutest kid ever!) get the family she deserved with both of her parents.
Sidenote: Like Theo, I am a Type 1 diabetic, and it's rare that I see a book character with this illness. I applaud the author for going there and really committing to portraying diabetes and all of its difficulties in a realistic manner. She didn't just use the illness for dramatic purposes; it was part of Theo's everyday life and affected everything he did.
There was a big medical crisis in the back half of the book that I thought was handled really well. The way it played out was very compelling and emotional, and it tied together the threads of family, friendship, and faith that were woven throughout the book. I shed more than a few tears as I read the final chapters and kept thinking about the characters and the story for days after I had finished it.
Left Hanging is a moving and memorable tale that I highly recommend, and I look forward to reading more from Cindy Dorminy whose writing really impressed me.
Left Hanging is a sweet romance with an emotional grip that won't let go. I really enjoyed how Ms Dorminy used the technical aspects of their jobs (in the medical field) in a deeper way than most without feeling like I was reading a medical textbook. It was just enough to make the setting more vivid.
I laughed and cried with these characters, fell in love and screamed at them. The family connections and friends were all so fantastic I seriously wanted to crawl in the book and give them all a hug!
If you enjoy having your heart ripped apart and put back together, you'll love Left Hanging.
So from the description, you know that Theo's going to find out (this isn't a spoiler, it's common sense) about his daughter. The whole time I was reading, I waited for it. Biting my nails, waiting for the bomb to drop. And man did Cindy Dorminy deliver. I won't give the details, you'll have to read it.
One last thing that I enjoyed is that Darla and Theo are both nerds. But they are such great nerds. Theo has this dorky side to him, where he loves games. I think it's great that Darla enjoys with them as well. In the first chapter, when they meet, it's such a sweet getting to know each other moment. And shows their personalities well.
I would recommend this book hands down. There is one sexual situational scene, but I think you can easily turn the page and continue the story. We were give an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
