"If God makes all our faces, did he laugh when he made me?
Does he make the legs that cannot walk and eyes that cannot see?
Does he curl the hair upon my head `til it rebels in wild defiance?
Does he close the ears of the deaf man to make him more reliant?
Is the way I look coincidence or just a twist of fate?
If he made me this way, is it okay, to blame him for the things I hate?
For the flaws that seem to worsen every time I see a mirror,
For the ugliness I see in me, for the loathing and the fear.
Does he sculpt us for his pleasure, for a reason I can't see?
If God makes all our faces, did he laugh when he made me?"
This book is one truly amazing piece of writing. It hurt to read it, so bad, my head hurt, my heart ached, my eyes stung but I could not put it down. It was such a captivating read. Even though I could relate in so many ways, far more than I ever wished I could, despite the pain I felt when reading, I read it in one sitting. Nothing or no-one was going to get in the way. I was totally gone, zoned out into a world of Fern, Ambrose and my little Bailey.
I really don't know where to start...I don't want to waffle but I want to do this book justice. I could probably write for hours about this book, but then it would put you all off!! So I will give you the basics.
This is a book that will have you thinking, thinking a lot! It will make you question how you see yourself and those around you. Are we all really that shallow that we only judge people on the way they look and their appearances. Do we only see the flaws and the disabilities rather than the person underneath?Read more ›
This is more than a romance book. It's a story of friendship, bravery and most of all love. I loved the poems and the quotes from Shakespeare which were so meaningful. The story features Ambrose, Fern and Bailey. Three friends that go through so much. We have the romance between Ambrose and Fern, a slow burn romance that has them both suffering from their own insecurities but to me, the romance is the secondary story in this book. The real story is much, much, more than the romance. It's about beauty, overcoming the odds, grief, loss, hope and moving on which is all told so beautifully by this author. I loved Ambrose and Fern but the character who really shines is Bailey. So touching, so well written.
There is no denying that this book has sad moments but it also has happy moments and inspirational moments. This story will stay with me and there are not many books I have been able to say that about.
