We’ve all heard of Karma yes? Reap what you sow, get back what you dish out!
But have you heard of Kismet? Maybe you’d know it better as fate, what’s written in the stars, what’s mapped out for you, there is nothing you can do to change it! Heavy stuff huh, well this book is all about the heavy!
I must confess the first few chapters were tough, Katie has just been through the most horrific trauma and you’d have to be made of stone not to feel for her but it was depressing and I wasn’t sure if I needed this kind of read but then the author did something I have only known one other to do to me ~ that is she started to weave a web, introducing characters and building up a background that made me want Katie to get better and live and hope and dream and have her hearts desire, she deserved it, she deserved it more than anyone I know, whether they be real people or fictional characters ~ yes I was THAT invested, I needed her to have better, to be better so that I could feel better!
There just aren’t enough impactive adjectives to describe this book, I’ve ugly cried whilst reading before but I actually had an ache in my chest that didn’t go away for days, A.E Woodward wrote it SO well that I can forgive her for breaking my fictional heart!
I loved that I wasn’t expecting the ending, I would have bet my first born that the author would never ever have chosen that option but this book is called Kismet and I now accept that it was right & it fits and as much as it tore my heart in two, it also made it a 5 star read for me!
The opening chapter had me sucked in, as I was introduced to Katie, who is clearly fighting to get over something that has scarred her emotionally. A few more pages in and we’re down to the nitty gritty, Katie has been left bereft, inconsolable with grief and consumed with guilt over after the death of her husband and beloved daughter. But that’s not the only issue Katie has to deal with. She believes they were taken from her because of choices she made in the past, and this is her punishment.
I found the writing of A E Woodward was so descriptive that I could FEEL the emotions Katie went through, her grief, her guilt, the emptiness, all of it. I loved the flow of the story, the dialogue between the characters; it all just felt so natural, so real. I found the style of writing reminded me of how I felt whilst reading Take This Regret by A L Jackson.
After Katie is discharged from hospital, her parents take her home, her childhood home, the farm where she grew up with her elder brother Tommy. She has a long road of rehabilitation ahead of her, made all the more harder on her family as she withdraws completely from everyone. Her parents and Tommy are there to support her, along with Dr Stevenson (her shrink) and Parker McKenzie, Tommy’s best friend.
I loved Parker and Tommy; they were so protective of Katie and would do anything for her.Read more ›
"Kismet~ A power that is believed to control what happens in the future"
After reading the synopsis for Kismet, I had a conversation with the author, and said that I was excited about Kismet as it looks very good, and I have a feeling that I'm going to need tissues. Well after reading Kismet was more than just good, it was amazing just like A.E Woodward said it would be. Yes, I did need tissues, and lots of them.
After the loss of her husband, daughter, and unborn baby, Katie's world comes crumbling down heartbroken with grief, pain and the guilt that she survived, and they didn't she shut down and won't talk to anyone. In hopes, to help her heal she moves back to her family's horse farm. Whist there, she is reunited with Parker McKenzie her brother's best friend, whom she has known since she was little. Katie and Parker share a history there was and is much more to their friendship, but Parker is one of the reasons she feels so guilty about what she has lost.
The story is told mainly from Katie's POV, about second chances, forgiveness, new beginnings, strength and learning to live again. Kismet is not an easy read; it was an emotional rollercoaster from the very first chapter. My heart went out to her as I could feel her heartache, anguish and despair. I could feel her emotions; understand the reasons why she struggles to cope with what happened, and to find herself again. Why she feels what happened was a result of her secrets and the choices she had made. I did have a feeling I knew what the secret was and therefore, I was anxious to keep reading to see if I was right, and see how this aspect of the story would unfold.
Every so often A.Read more ›
