I don't think anyone can comprehend the ordeal of loosing those who you hold dear, particularly when you think you have it all. We get to see a small glimpse of Carrie's ideal life at the beginning of the story, how things were perfect and everyone was happy. After what we presumed to be an ordeal we are transported to the present day when we see a different Carrie. She is independent and hardworking, News from home reach her and she is faced with a tough decision. In order to move on she has learnt to be someone else, she believes that by erasing everyone from her past she has shield her heart from painful reminders. Living like that unfortunately hasn't allowed her to let go of her past, even though time has passed her by it is like being in a pretend bubble where nobody can touch her and only she knows the truth. As Carrie faces her past and is reunited with her family she starts to come to terms with what she has lost and the realisation of what she has been missing out on. A new love interests appears when she least expects it, pushing her to choose if to live in the past or to embrace the future.
This book was a lovely surprise. A breath of fresh air. Those who love second chance stories will be totally engrossed in this book. The characters are charming and the connection between them is very powerful. Revive will teach the reader the true value of family, the opportunities that life gives us and the incredible healing power of Love.
How do you recover when your world is torn apart? Carrie has been struggling since an accident did just that. Pulling herself away from everything, and almost everyone she loves, she has focused on her career. Her job is busy, challenging and takes her complete focus. Keeping her head down and not letting any emotions through allows her to focus on the here and now with no time to dwell on what she has already lost. If she doesn’t build new ties, she can’t ever lose again. Or so she thought… When she faces another life-changing event, how will she cope?
I enjoyed this story of love, loss, and the resilience of the human spirit. Carrie was young and beautiful but seemed to be withering away as she pulled into herself, grieving in the only way she knew how. When pulled from her self-imposed exile, she didn’t take it well, to say the least. While not always likable, Carrie’s character went through a lot of emotional maturity and growth so by the end of the story she owned her feelings and actions.
An emotional and drama-filled, sweet romance.
Several failed attempts at contact forces her brother, Jason, to show up at her apartment with terrible news. Her mother is dying of cancer. Her last wish is for the family to get together for one final vacation.
This book is fantastic. Claire Thake does a great job at portraying a true sense of grief within her work. I lost a dear friend to ovarian cancer a couple of years ago, and Revive really touched on that with me. Remembering that loss really caused me to tear up for these characters and understand what they were going through.
I don't want to give anything away so I am going to have to end my review here!
Claire did an amazing job at writing this book and I look forward to reading more books by her. The way that she portrays her characters is something that a lot of authors struggle with in the beginning, but I think she nailed it spot on. The reader can really feel the emotions that she wants them to feel as she writes the story out.
I am honored to have gotten to read this book and look forward to more of Claire's writing.
