What do you do when the unthinkable happens? How do you continue with the day to day ripple effects of loss? Because it happens. No matter how much you wish that those who are brave enough to stand in the face of danger and say "Not on my watch" those protectors who keep us from harm sometimes don't make it home to their families. That's what this book is about. Phoenix is such a strong character (yes, we see her broken at the beginning) but even in her brokenness there is strength. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to live through events like this and I have major respect for the men and woman who have had to live through this very thing.
Resurrecting Phoenix is very different from a lot of Isabel's books and I truly think it's her best yet. In Phoenix she gives us a character who is just trying to make it day by day and begin healing, it's a very truthful representation of beauty in tragedy and that healing from loss is a ongoing process and its Nothing that happens quickly. Sure life can change in an instant but rebounding from that change is not as instantaneous. This quote from early in the book is one that has stuck with me the most
"It’s just interesting that both your names are a kind of bird. While your last name says you’re sad and longing for something, your first name says you’ll bounce back and rise again. Seems like no matter what happens to you, you’ll be okay.”
The symbolism is perfect for the story of rebuilding yourself after the darkest days. Gradually Phoenix begins to live again after some sage advice from Carol and spending time around people who don't pressure her to be who she was before and embrace the person she is now. I thought this was a heartbreaking look into love, loss and finding yourself in the aftermath.
With a name like Phoenix Nightingale, I just loved how Evan tells her about her name when first meeting her (keep in mind he has no idea of the hell she's been through nor anything about her yet)... "It's just interesting that both your names are a kind of bird. While your last name says you're sad and longing for something, your first name says you'll bounce back and rise again. Seems like no matter what happens to you, you'll be ok."
This book took me on a roller coaster ride for sure. I can honestly say you'll want a box of Kleenex near you while reading. Characters were so well written it makes you feel as if you were there and living the hardships they went through.
I fell in love with Isabel's writing since The Escort Series came out, if you haven't read that series as well... I'd highly recommend them...especially if you like hot guys and a good time?!?!
Bravo on Resurrecting Phoenix Miss Isabel, and thank you for giving me the chance to read it and give my opinion and honest review. :)
What an emotional read! How do you move on when you lose the most important and the love of your life? Phoenix is struggling, she doesn't want to move and even if she did she has no idea how to. When a stranger comes to town, he is determined to get Phoenix back to living. What will happen and will they be able to get to a happy ending? Will Phoenix be able to accept the things from this man's past? I would recommend this to anyone to read, i really enjoyed it.
