Some people are blessed to find that one certain person who completes them.
Wrynn’s yesterdays were what others only dream of having. She and Tripp were the best of friends before they even thought about love. They had the fairy tale life where ‘like’ turns into ‘love’, and ‘love’ becomes ‘happily ever after’.
What happens when life conspires against you, and snatches your soul mate from your arms?
…only her forever love ended much too soon.
Broken beyond her own ability to repair, Wrynn boxes up her grief and attempts to raise her three girls the best she can on her own. As time slowly passes, Wrynn relives her life with Tripp while struggling most days to get out of bed. She is reminded of him at every turn.
How do you set your grief and anguish aside? How do you pick up the shattered pieces, put those pieces back together again, and try to move on?
Wrynn tries to find the joy in life every single day through her daughters, family, and friends. Her twin brother Liam has dedicated himself to helping Wrynn put her life back together after losing his own love. On the other hand, her mother-in-law lives to torment her at every turn. Wrynn can't even find a chance to breathe, much less a desire to somehow search for her tomorrow.
In the beginning of reading this book, I wasn't so sure that I was going to like it, but the more I read the more I found myself wanting to see how it would end. Talk about being so happy that I continued to read this book because wow, I was so touched by the ending. This book really spoke to me on so many different levels especially with the fact that I am a military wife and could relate with some of the fears that Wrynn deals with.
Wrynn is one woman who finds her true love at a young age but not just anybody, he is her best friend and someone who has been in her life for majority of it. The only thing she wasn't ready for, was to lose that true love so early in life. We get to learn about Wrynn's love story, as well as seeing her every day struggles and how she fights each day to find her tomorrow.
I was blown away by the ending of this book. It was not at all what I had expected to happen but was simply amazing. I was so moved by this touching story. There so many times that I felt as if I were going to cry, and then other times that holding back the tears was just not possible for me. Personally, a book that can reach my emotions on that level is simply great! The only thing that left me with the way this book ended was the fact that it did touch on Wrynn's brother Liam's history as well as his present. We really didn't get the answers about him and Lara which makes me think there is the possibility for a second book to continue with Liam's story but I guess I will have to wait and see. I really enjoyed reading this book and hope that others will enjoy it as much as I did.
I give this book 4 Great Stars!!
If you are reading this, I think you should know that "About me" sounds so very pretentious to me. I guess that is what I am supposed to write about, so here it goes!
Kathryn is a simple country girl who likes to spend time with her hubba, hunka hubby, her three kids and her friends. She loves to cook and really loves to eat! During the spring and summer, you will more than likely find her outside puttering around in her garden. When the veggies start coming in, she will probably be sweating over a hot canner in the kitchen, canning all the goodies she is blessed with. Kathryn likes to hike and go camping, and as a Girl Scout leader, she gets to do this pretty often! On cold winter nights, you will probably find her wrapped in a warm blanket, lost in a good book, while sitting in her rocking chair on the front porch!
Kathryn was born and raised in North Carolina, and while she loves to travel, she can't imagine ever leaving the mountains that she has come to call home. Not a day goes by that Kathryn doesn't thank God for abundantly blessing her. He has been so good to her, and she is very grateful. She holds Jeremiah 29:11 very close to her heart and believes it with every fiber of her being. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Kathryn loves flip flops, chocolate, sweet tea and dirt between her toes. As far back as she can remember, she's had a book in her hand. Reading has carried her to places she will never go. It has introduced her to people that she will never meet. When life is great and when it is rough, she's always been able to find a book to carry her through. She finally decided to write down some of the stories in her head (yes, be scared) and heart after dawdling around and wasting years dreaming. She hopes you enjoy reading those stories as much as she loves writing them!
