I am so glad I did. Yes, it was heartrendingly difficult to read, but wow, it is so worth it! I felt every agonizing baby step of progress, every heartbreaking step back, cheered every major accomplishment, willed her through every setback. I honestly don't think my interest ever waned and the climax? Nope, didn't see that coming. The icing on the cake(throw in a cherry on the top, if you like) were the multiple epilogs, tidied everything up very neatly, thank you very much. An excellent experience and one I won't forget.
I cannot express how much this book captivated and mesmerized me with its extraordinary storyline of pain, suffering, hurt, trust, tenderness, healing and love.
From the Prologue it had me crying big fat tears for Allyn. In those first few pages I knew I was going to go on an emotional rollercoaster – and OMG it was so worth the ride.
This is not your typical romance book. It is filled with so much more. It really is gut wrenching at times as it is so real and raw. You will feel the emotions as you read this story. Your heart will break and it will smile.
It is written beautifully in the first person which helps you understand and feel what the characters are going through. The way Margaret conveys and expresses her characters emotions and feelings is beyond brilliant. It is so intense, vivid and clear. I felt everything they felt. I was right there with them.
Allyn is a young, energetic strawberry blonde who is attacked by predators who abuse, hurt and damage her beyond repair. Her life will never be the same. Will she ever be able to find freedom and happiness within herself?
Dominic is a psychiatrist who deals with challenging and difficult cases. He is strong, independent, has his own insecurities, but lives his life helping and putting others needs first. In my mind he is completely beautiful inside and out. So sincere, tender, caring, loving and the most handsome hero I think I have read to date.
It is almost like destiny is bringing them together. Allyn needs help and happens to watch a show where Dominic is mentioned.Read more ›
Wow. What a ride.
This is a book about healing. Not in the heartbreak kind of way or even in the broken bone sort of way. This is a book about healing when there is nothing but brokenness inside of you.
How do you overcome something that not only changed your life but changed you, physically and mentally, forever? How do you overcome the pain, fear, and shame that was forced on you by others? How do you live again when you have no idea why you're still living to begin with?
Allyn was raped. She wasn't just raped by one man, she was raped by 3. She wasn't just raped. She was mutilated. Part of her ear was bit off, her nipple sliced off, numerous bite marks all over her body, her eye was damaged to the point where she can't see correctly out of it, and she's no longer able to conceive. That is just a summary of the hell that she had to endure.
She survived, yet she has no idea why or how.
Now, locked in her house day in and day out, she is trying to heal.
Dr. Dominic Shriver is a psychiatrist who specializes in patients who have experienced life-altering traumas. Allyn calls his office one day, needing something more than she's getting from the doctor she has been seeing.
What she didn't know when she called him, however, is that she was already starting the process that would save her.
Allyn and Dominic's story isn't an easy one. Allyn is broken - as can be expected. While she wants to heal, the scars and the voices in her make that hard.Read more ›
This is not an easy story... its a very deep, emotional and strong story!
I love that the author gives us the various POV's because that makes us understand better what is going on inside their minds.
The last page of the book, left me covered in goosebumps! I was so emotionally attached to the story, that I couldn't help it!
Thank you for this great book Margaret! With this book you remind all of us that there's always hope in our lives and we must always look forward, knowing that everyday is a new and better day, not forgetting that beauty comes within us and not as we always seem to think, from the exterior.
