By Laura TOP 500 REVIEWER on 23 Sept. 2016

I have seen nothing but positive, glowing reviews for this book and when I read the synopsis, it reminded me of a brilliant book I read where the heroine doesn't talk called 'The Sea of Tranquility' which was a 5 star read for me. Unfortunately, this book was nowhere near as good.

The book starts when Maggie and Brooks meet as six year olds. It's told from both their POV's but all I could think was how the vocabulary and thought processes used were far too advanced for six year olds. Then I had the same problem when they are 8 years old. So Maggie witnesses something traumatic that renders her speechless. The story then picks up again when she's 18 and hasn't spoken for 10 years. She is still best friends with Brooks but she never leaves the house but he comes everday to see her and they listen to music. Maggie is obsessed with reading and has read hundreds of books over the last 10 years. I can see that the author was trying to express things using the music and the books but I didn't feel the connection between them romantically.

Brooks then receives a recording contract with his band and is off to see the world but of course Maggie can't go as she's housebound but they write and discuss books. I didn't like this bit. When they're aged 18, it states it's 2016 but then using the letter writing, time passes by until they're 28 and so it's 2026 but I felt the author still mentioned things as if it was 2016! So then we have Maggie age 28 still mute and still housebound. I just felt that was unrealistic that in all that time nothing had changed.

They reconnect and then something happens to Brooks which finally has an impact on Maggie but then Maggie needs to help Brooks. I felt the ending was quite rushed. The story failed to make me feel any emotions however, after finishing it and reading the authors note, I did feel for the author what she had gone through as a child. Unfortunately, this story didn't really do it for me.

Evocatively angst ridden, yet emotionally astute. This book was written with such beauty, such acumen, such attitude that I just never wanted to stop reading. I could see the pages melt away beneath my fingertips and I was willing there to me more, keeping my fingers crossed that the author wasn’t ready to call time on the story and that I didn’t have to put it down. This is a story that will stay with me for a while, well actually the whole series will and not just because they have some of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen, no the story is that good, it deserves higher praise than I am possible ever likely to be worthy of giving.
The story didn’t flow, it coursed. The characters didn’t just tell me their story they spoke to me, told from dual points of view, I felt as if I was alongside them listening intently to every word. It wasn’t what they said so much as what they couldn’t say that wrapped itself around me.
Maggie was silent, externally verbally non communicative but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have plenty to say. Her life wasn’t as you learn when the circumstances surrounding the loss of her voice, was far from easy, she had experienced things that no child should ever bear witness too but she survived and has continued to do so. But as tough as some of the situations have been she has always had her friends and family to fall back on but what happens when the one thing you have loved your entire life is the one thing you know you have to give away?
Maggie and Brooks have loved each other from childhood, they have grown and developed together but when their lives are forced onto a different path and their time together is cut short I was left reeling.

I've read every one of Brittainy C Cherry's books and lets face it this lady can write some beautiful, in depth heart wrenching stories and this one is no exception. Absolutely beautifully written, it has angst, depth, fear, hope, love and loss and it attached itself to my heart after only a couple of chapters. I just knew how good this book was going to be, the characters were so strong, so receptive, gave off so much energy, even the secondary characters are amazing too.
Maggie has an experience as a child that leaves her distraught and extremely traumatised, and she feels isolated and alone, but she has Brookes to fall back on who is her childhood friend and constant companion when growing up. We get to experience the Maggie and Brookes before the tragedy and after, as they grow older and told in duel perspective this really gives an insight into the feelings of each character at that particular time. I loved Maggie's character - she had strength even in her darkest hours, but I adored Brookes - he is just a wonderful man, so full of love, dependable, her constant in the darkest of hours.
This book is what love is all about, the emotion, the feels, how it grips hold of your heart and never lets go and finally takes over your soul. This book hits deep down and makes you smile, makes you feel humble. It makes you feel the deepest hurt and the highest of highs. It is raw and real and very powerful and an excellent read. Another 10 star read for me !!!
"The world keeps spinning because your heartbeats exist"!! Not to be missed !!!!
