I finished this book a few days ago. Yet I wasn’t ready to be finished with the characters and storyline. To say I had my heart broken, would be an understatement. To say this is the most I’ve ever cried in a book, would be the absolute truth. At times I wasn’t sure I could finish this book, not due to the story line not grabbing me, but due falling in love with the characters and feeling everything they did. At times I couldn’t even see my kindle screen, the tears were that heavy.
When you have personally been affected by the big C word, whether it be yourself or your family, some feelings never leave you. Reading this story, I just wanted to hug my Dad tighter (2 years in remission). It reminded me that everyday is a gift, not a right.
Alice and Becky have such a beautiful friendship. 2 totally different girls who balance each other out perfectly. Add in Elijah and you have a great group of friends, who would do anything and everything for each other. Elijah and Alice’s relationship took a little while to build but it was worth the wait. In so many ways. Alice’s parents were great. Such love birds showing both girls what true love looks like.
It’s hard to review this book with out giving too much away. Though, whilst writing my review, Im wanting to reread the book. I’m so happy Margaret released this book in one and broke it up into 2 parts. Part one gave my emotions a roller coaster of a ride. Part 2 slowly put it all back together.
I can’t wait for you all to read Dying Wish. I didn’t see one particular story line in part 2. You will know which story line I’m talking about when you read it. It’s just beautiful and proves that even in death a person can still have such a strong influence in your life.
Margaret thank you for writing such a raw story line. A topic many would shy away from, but sadly is apart of so many of our lives.
Yes I cried, I sobbed. I was a mess. I read the book within 24 hours. I needed the ending. I needed to see how it all worked out. I was not disappointed.
There’s something about the written word that is pure magic.
Possibly it’s the fact there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering they’re capable to change our lives.
How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?
I like to think of myself as ‘unique’. My stories aren’t for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be ‘normal’.
Normal is subjective.
I prefer to be known as a person who’s never been ‘bound by custom’ but is ‘unique by choice’.
I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.
