I've had this paperback for a while but just didn't have the time to pick it up because I was swamped with Arc's and other daily obligations.
I was actually reading an ARC but I wasn't connecting to it and felt like it wasn't working for me... I thought I'd pick something up—that is not an ARC, and cure whatever it was that has been plaguing me... and since the ARC isn't due for about a week, I thought I'd revisit that after I read something from my personal pile—and decided to pick this one.
Damn. It was... I mean I knew that this was going to be an emotional read. I expected it but still I didn't expect to bawl my eyes out. The last time I ugly-cried and sobbed towards a book this much was earlier this year when I read When Ashes Fall by Marni Mann.
I lost my father 13years on August 16th. And it doesn't even matter if its been 2 months, 8years or even 13 years, it hurts all the same. It still hurts everyday. And I don't think it'll ever go away because love and grief are intertwined. You grieve the person you love. And I was a huge Daddy's girl... Huge. I'm his errand girl and his go-to person because I'm the eldest. So this book hit me so hard.
I've been reading KA Tucker's books eversince Ten Tiny Breaths was published and although I haven't read every book she wrote, I've read most, and I already know in my heart that this is my favorite of them all... Well unless she writes another one that would blow me away like this one did.
My only complain is the short epilogue... I wish there was more... or an epilogue two.... lol I'm such a romantic sap.
