Happy Friday! Today I am bringing to you an emotional ride that will have you craving more with every page you turn. Cassandra Giovanni has such a talent for weaving an emotional tale that will leave you both fulfilled and emotional for days after you finish the book. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb. Have an awesome weekend and be sure to share what your reading!
Ellie Abela’s life has been anything but easy. Tragedy follows her where ever she goes, and she’s been a lot of places. At twenty she’s lived in over ten different states, all because of her dad’s career in medical research. His career is just another list of the causes of tragedies in El’s life. He’s dying, and with every breath he takes closer to Heaven, Ellie dies a little bit inside too.
At twelve she lost her mom in a drunk driving accident, and in a matter of months she fears she’ll lose the last person she has in the world to cancer.
While Ellie’s life has been rife with sadness, Trent Wentworth’s has been a challenge. A drug-addicted mom and a dead-beat dad meant at twenty three he was the adoptive father of his two year old sister. Now at twenty five he’s working his way up the corporate ladder and a struggling single parent.
Each is searching for a cure to the things in their lives dragging them down.
Not all cures are black and white; not all cures save us–and sometimes saving isn’t what we need. Sometimes we just need to realize how lucky we are to be alive, at least for this moment.
For so long it has seemed like a struggle just living for Ellie. Between losing her mother at a young age and her father fighting the disease that will kill him, Ellie has lost herself in the world of sorry and grief. That is until she meets Trent. Trent’s life has been hard with a drug addict for a mother and a dead-beat dad. His life becomes even more complicated when he adopts two-year old sister. When Trent and Ellie meet they seem to click and find in each other what the other has been lacking. But, when things get really tough will they be able to hold their lives together and realize that their love can be the cure to all their troubles.
I was absolutely floored by this beautiful story. Ellie and Trent’s love and relationship is one that will have you striving for that kind of love. The story is expertly written to bring the reader into Ellie’s world of grief and sorrow. But, just as you are brought into the hardest parts of her life you will also share the happiest of them. Your heart will break and heal in the matter of chapters. This is a touching and heartbreaking love story that will show the reader the power of love in healing and accepting a future that you can’t control. I adored this book and I can’t wait to get my hands on another Cassandra Giovanni book. If you like books by Colleen Hoover then you will love this one by Cassandra Giovanni.
