Autumn and Matt have just gotten married. They are excited to begin their life together and are off to go in their honeymoon. Then suddenly Autumn awakes to find herself in a hospital room. Why is she not on her honeymoon? Where is her husband? She starts to become more coherent and sees her parents off to the side in her hospital room. As they gently talk to her , she begins to get agitated. She demands to know where Matt is. Slowly her mind is able to comprehend that Matt is no longer alive. Her parents tell her of the accident, and she slowly starts to remember that day.
Autumn has injuries that will take her awhile to recover from. But how will her heart recover? She was Matt's wife for only twenty-four hours , but in that short time her world was happy and bliss. As she slowly recovers physically, everyone around her knows that she is just going the motions . Her deep depression is trapping her in isolation as she tells her friends and family she is fine. For Autumn her dreams died the day Matt did. She feels hopeless and just wants to exist with no real purpose.
Autumn slowly starts to get up in the morning and start to take her life back. She forbids anyone to say Matt's name and decides she will just put him in the past and move forward. She tells her family that she has decided to take a trip overseas to get away. Maybe she can start to live again, find a purpose or just deal with her grief.
The author introduced us to several characters Autumn meets on her travels. She meets a brother snd sister and soon they develop a friendship. They decide to travel together and soon it seems as though Autumn is becoming herself again. Can she find a way to let go of her hurt and pain over losing her husband?
I enjoyed one of the stops Autumn makes in her journey when she meets Dominic. His family is old school Italian, rich in culture. I loved it when Autumn smashes the grapes for wine with her feet. It made me think of a great scene from "I Love Lucy," where Lucy is trying to keep up with the other women who are smashing grapes with their feet and laughing at Lucy as she tries to keep up. The author wrote an amazing , happy time that Autumn experienced with people who liked her and she began to feel part of the family. She found herself enjoying being around people again and having fun.
The story shares with the readers how one woman goes through loss, pain and finding herself again. It captures the emotions of a lost love and a woman who is determined to move forward and find peace. I loved the writing by the author that gave Autumn raw emotions as she journeys to see her hopes and dreams come to pass. This is a story you will remember for a long time as the words flow so beautifully across the pages.
I received this book as a free download after reading Skinny Me, and I found this book giving me a mixture of emotions. There was the happy and sweet feelings of Matt and Autumn for the time leading up to their happy day, and the love you felt for them on that day. Then the tragedy and feeling of loss, wondering how life can be so unfair at times. I felt frustrated at the way Autumn chose to deal with her loss, and I guess I also was angry with her because the way she tried to forget and discount Matt and what they had was selfish, not to mention cruel. She had an amazing adventure where she met amazing people who showed her love, and that there is beauty to life, even when there's struggles and pain. As upset as I was for the way she went about everything, in the end she made it right. She learned that there was a better more successful way to live and thrive. I felt this book was better than the first even though I related more to the other story. This is a good read of self discovery and how we don't always get it right at first.
