Please be aware there is some spoilers in my review! This short 130page book is an interesting story.
We start off learning about Mary and her family/parents. Which unfortunately did not have a happy outcome. Mary’s parents died when she was just 12 years old. However she realised that she has to appreciate the little things in life. In university she met and fell in love with Elliott. They had a little girl Natalie.
However again tragedy struck for Natalie and Mary, when Natalie was 11-13 years of age she was raped and ended up having twins to her rapist as she didn’t want to abort them. Because of this Elliott left earth for good.
The twins were adopted out and Mary and Natalie were ready to move towns and try to move on with their life. Again another tragedy struck and Mary was once again left on her own.
We then move on to learn about the life of Trevor and Julia, two teens who meet when Julia moves town with her parents once again. They start getting to know one another and seem to just be starting to fall for each other when Julia is in a tragic accident with her parents which put her into a coma.
On waking Julia had to start regaining her memories. With the help of Trevor by her side.
Trevor comes from a family with many problems as well but over time these things start to get better with the help of his dad and he thinks everything is going perfectly.
Eventually Trevor and Julia get married and have a baby girl and that’s where the plot gets so much more interesting! But I won’t give away the ending but trust me you want to read it till the end.
Overall I quite enjoyed this book. The style or writing is simple and understandable and just easy to read and it’s just what you need in a story that is not all that long! It didn’t drag out or keep me guessing! Loved it 🙂
