Pepper Winters has once again surprised the readers with her latest release of Unseen Messages. She has stepped out of the dark world and created a completely different reading adventure. A reading adventure that once again kept me glued to the pages. The nicest thing about this latest release is that it was a stand alone book. There were no CLIFFHANGERS! I didn't close this book with knots in my stomach. I closed it with extreme satisfaction. I marveled at the reading experience. I was left with the thoughts...What If? Would I survive? I also marveled at the journey Pepper created for each of her characters.
I think most of us are intrigued with the idea of being stranded on a deserted island. We romanticize the theory in our heads, but the reality of it is brutal. Would any of us be able to survive without our cell phones? Could we live without the comfort of air conditioning, electricity, and automobiles? Could we forage for food rather than going to the frig or going through a fast food drive through. Then think about hot showers, soap, deodorant , toothpaste, and body lotion. Could we survive without pain killers, bandaids, sunscreen, or antiseptics? A mere scratch could be deadly in a primitive world.
A group of travelers anxious to get to their destinations fall into the hands of fate. A family eager to reconnect on their long awaited vacation, a young man desperate to begin his penance and redemption, a young woman desperately seeking peace and quiet, and an experienced pilot taking his passengers to their dream destination. Fate intervenes. The helicopter crashes. Lives are lost. Some survive but the cost is high. Now the survivors must learn how to survive in a primitive, untouched world. None of the survivors have the proper skills to exist in a hostile environment.
Two adults and two children will learn a new meaning of life. A new life with different values and different dreams. They will learn to become a part of their new existence or perish. Along the way they will experience life, friendship, love, loss, and renewal. Their experience will forever change their perception of the world. It will change their lives. They are no longer the same people that boarded a helicopter on August 29th. They have evolved. Their secrets of the past no longer matter. Their future is on a new path. Their hopes of rescue may be in vain.
Pepper Winters did a phenomenal job writing this story. It was very realistic and heart breaking. She didn't romanticize the harsh realities of her characters lives. She didn't give them the kind of happily ever after we would expect. She gave them new lives that were molded by their time on an island.
This is a true love story in many ways. Four people bonded with their complete hearts. The survivors had a new perception of love, life, and happiness.
I highly recommend reading Unseen Messages by Pepper Winters!
Book really makes you think about life and what is the most important thing to you, what is most important for survival in any situation. What can you change, what can you do if you have a choice, can you change your life or should you just "go with it"?
It really puts life and everyday things in very different perspective. I love this book. It is wonderfully written. Pepper nailed it, you can feel that she put her heart and soul into this book and that makes it that much more perfect.
I honestly don't know what else to talk you because words can't describe how great this book is.
So just go ahead, one click it, relax, dive in and be ready to rethink your life after you finished.
More than anything, enjoy it! Because you won't be able to put it down.
Way too long. Way too wordy. Way too much introspection from the main characters. I skimmed and skimmed, and then skimmed some more. I wish she would seriously consider the adage “less is more”. And I know Ms. Winters says that she wrote this book for herself. Many authors say that, but I think it's kind of an excuse to not work on improving their writing.
<--spoiler mild spoiler - mild spoilers -->
That was the oddest, fantastical (albeit telegraphed) ending. They ended up with nearly everything they tried to avoid. Why not just, oh I don't know, move?
Coconut? I died. No really, I think I died because it had to have been a bad dream if that happened.
Thank goodness no episiotomy was needed, I guess. Who tied the cord? Babies don't exactly thrive on fish, leaves and coconut and Estelle wasn't thriving so she wasn't flush with healthy breast milk. My head hurts.
Ugh, I want my day back.
