The book tried so hard to have angst & conflict, but never reached either. I felt like I was watching people read off a page without any emotion.
Potential Spoilers Ahead
The "heroine" Alyson meets a family while she is escaping from the grief of losing her family. After a couple of hours she decides to move into their home. After a week she is in love enough with the son, who she never really has a conversation about anything with, to go back home & pack up her life to move back to him & his family. Mean while he lets her go for 3 months so she can pack up said life, even though he is madly in love with her, to conveniently walk in her front door the day she is done with all the packing up & tells her he loves her. I don't see how any of these characters clicked right away. It isn't that they are unlikeable. You don't learn enough about any of them to like or dislike them. They seem like cardboard cut outs from a Disney tragedy.
I honestly wish I liked the book more. If you read it, you are welcome to disagree.
Even though this is a novella, a lot of emotional ground is covered in a spectacular way. You learn how families can either fall apart, or become stronger in the process of grieving. Shawnte Borris definitely leaned from the Molly McAdams of emotional warfare, lol. Making you fall in love with all the characters, and internalizing their struggles.
The journey starts in a cab coming from who knows where. It feels like you are coming into the middle of something important, you just don't know what it is yet. You know something is terribly wrong, but aren't quite sure what it is. While riding in the cab, you realize Ally is lost and is running away from something. I was hooked to the story, for good or bad, at this point. I felt Aly had let me come along on a journey full of pain, and she needed me to stay strong and hear it all out to the end. I know I maybe a little too attached to my reading....but it hasn't served me wrong yet!
As the story developes and grows the character introduced become important to the story. All of them have a history and pain that needs to be explored. As this family takes her in, she is also, somehow, fixing them at the same time they fix her. It is absolutly beautiful.
No review would be complete with the mention of Luke. Ah...Luke. Sucessful business man, caretaker of the family, devestatingly beautiful, damaged, and fully smitten with Ally from first sight. Watching them do a dance of flirting and pushing was fun.
