This book is the depressing story of a woman who's parents died, her husband died, her child died, and now she wants to die. This book follows this woman from 1 year after her husband and child die, for the next year and a half as she slowly, very slowly starts to live again.
The first 80% of this book is depressing and will make you cry almost continuously. The last 20% is barely happier... The only saving graces are that there is a happy ending and the woman decides that she is allowed to live and love again.
If you are looking for a book that will keep you depressed for the entire time you are reading it, and then some, you have found it right here!
This was a first read by Zart for me, and I think it was a good one to start with. This book had good characters and a strong emotional pull. Sara spends the entire book working through the grief of losing her husband in an accident that she feels like she caused. With the help of a grief counselor and her brother-in-law, she slowly starts to pick up the pieces and live her life again.
I thought the author did a good job of moving the story along, especially considering that she spent a good portion of the book at home, lost in thought. When the author got Sara out and about, the experiences she had were interesting and moved the story along.
The relationship between her brother-in-law Lincoln and her was fairly predictable. The reader watches how it develops, and by the end, I knew where it was going. That doesn't stop it from being interesting and a well-developed relationship.
I did feel like this book was too long. There were times when Sara was lost in thought and the story seemed to drag a bit. There were a few climactic moments were the author reveals that an assumption you made might not be correct, which helped, but I think there were probably some scenes that could have been cut.
Overall, despite the long length of the book, I really enjoyed it. I would read more by this author.
Sara's story made me reflect on my own life. What would I do if something that happened to her were to happen to me? How would I react? Could I move on with my life afterwards?
I know that many have shed tears because of this book. I didn't. Did this book make me sad? Yes, yes it did. But it wasn't the kind of soul-shattering sadness that I associate with crying. It was more the type of sadness that weighs heavy on the heart, the kind that makes it difficult to breathe.
Sara's grief is crippling, but so is Lincoln's. His even more so. And yet Lincoln finds within himself the strength to not only grieve and try to heal, but he also helps Sara learn to heal by letting go of something that will never return.
This was another book just beautifully written.
Take Care, Sara gets 5 out of 5 beautiful Platypires from me.
Sara's life isn't going like she planned. On a faithful night her husband was taken from her, since then she has lost her self, and is overcome with the emotions of losing the one you love.
The only thing that keeps her afloat is the calls from Cole's younger brother, Lincoln. It's always a one sided conversation, but it helps her, he helps her.
With a huge decision looming in front of her, Sara needs Lincoln even more, but will he still want to be around her when she makes that decision?
Sara has lost everyone she has ever loved, why? What did she do that is so bad that God takes them all away?
Through her struggle of finding herself, this new Sara, being able to cope, breath without feeling guilty that she is...Sara's eye's begin to open to the closes person to her.
Can Sara forgive her self and Cole for leaving her and move on with the life she has left? Is there only one love for us, or is our hearts big enough to have a few loves in our lives? Sara will ask her self these and many more question through out her journey to finding herself back to the world she let slip between her fingers since that horrible day.
This book is a tear jerker from the very beginning and will have you crying the whole time. My heart broke for Sara and for Lincoln. I wanted to hold her, shake her and tell her to live. There were a lot of mistakes in the book, but I could over look those, because the story was just so good. I would love to see more of Sara and her new life without Cole, I just need more.
