By the time i was 80% through, i had to stop to compose myself so i could continue to read through my tears.
Corabelle and Gavin take you through there lives, flash backs of them growing up together how close they were, as teenagers, there discovery that they could be more than best friends learning how to kiss together how to love each other. What they couldnt do was how to deal with tragic loss together.
That is until they find themselves in the same class at collage four years later.
Corabelle and Gavin find out that when something tragic tears a love apart and when two people find each other again, they can discover that the love they once shared and thought was lost, might still be as strong as it was all those years ago, maybe even stronger.
The flash backs of the time Gavin and Corabelle spent with Finn rip your heart out, and the butterflies jesus, there are so many moments in this book that just have you in bits.
Deanna Roy has written this book so very well, it has a real life feel to the words. I especially liked how we got both Gavin and Corabelle's side to the pain and loss, it wasnt all about the girl who lost a child, they were both suffering in there own rights and had ways of dealing with the pain.
This book is full of powerful emotion with a wonderful love story woven in with some very painful moments in two peoples lives, a truly fantastic read. I am very much looking forward to reading more of Gavin and Corabelle's story in the next book.
I was right in that this wasn't an easy read and that the story was utterly heart-wrenching. There are a few chapters (near the end) that take the reader through from little Finn's birth to his death and I swear they ripped out my soul. I was a sobbing, semi-hysterical mess... The emotion of those chapters was breath-taking. Whether my emotions were heightened because I am a mother and I was projecting what I think I would've felt if I had been the one in Corabelle and Gavin's situation I don't know but I was so upset after reading them I had to put the ereader down and not go near it for a while to get a grip on myself.
Picking it up again to finish the story wasn't something I looked forward to doing because I didn't want to face that again... Which I guess is a victory for the author in that she powerfully conveyed a heartbreaking situation that no one should have to face but many do. A situation that people just don't understand - can't truly understand - unless they have been through it. I wanted to draw a line after those chapters, because my soul hurt but those who lose their children don't have the luxury of drawing a line and not going there again so I picked up the reader and finished the story...
As I said, I was hoping for a fantastic romance that would help soothe the characters pain, lead to healing, and happiness... That wasn't what you got in the relationship between Corabelle and Gavin. They are both so unbelievably damaged. Truly broken. Their entire relationship and general behaviour made me want to smack them and tell them to get a grip. I couldn't believe some of the things they have done / do to themselves. Both should have received help after the death of their son, regardless of what happened to them as a couple, as individuals they should have sought help. As for them moving on as a couple, I guess they want to and are going to but I wasn't left convinced that they should...
It was incredibly frustrating. I understand that people do stupid things when they are grieving and the loss of a child must be the most powerful kind of grief but I just couldn't get my head around how they chose to live the last 4 years. Truly couldn't get it at all.
The book finishes in no where's land. Both Corabelle and Gavin's secrets are out in the open but that's pretty much where it ends. At the big revelation. I know there is going to be a second book and I will read it hoping that Gavin and Corabelle come out of it healed (or as healing as they can be). Together or apart but I have to say I'm not looking forward to it for I doubt the next book will be any easier than this one.
This book is classed as New Adult and I guess that's because of the characters ages and the fact they are in college. However, this isn't your usual New Adult. If you are looking for angsty romance and growing up dilemmas, look elsewhere.
If you are looking for a book that will shock you, make you think and re-evaluate opinions, then read this, just don't expect a satisfying conclusion at this point... I think we need the next book for that.
I have no idea what star rating to give this book... I was so frustrated with Corabelle and Gavin for most of it I want to give it 1 star but it was well written, it raises important issues, makes you feel, makes you think, basically it is most definitely worth reading so that would be a 4 or a 5 star rating from me... However, It wasn't an enjoyable book really to read... Argh!! I guess I'll spilt the difference and say...
