I am an emotional reader, emotional person, and huge sap.
So yes, this review is sure to be emotion filled!
I hope that doesn't keep you from discovering an amazing book!
I knew in only reading the dedication this would be a book I enjoyed!
And then I read the poem, and I cried.
As we begin the book we learn about the secret Rye has,
and we learn about her precious daughter,
and then...the mysterious fella from the past.
Rye is dealing with a life-altering circumstance that changes everything.
Her family, friends, people around her, they all have to learn.
Somehow there needs to be support, love, courage, guidance, and
at the same time, memory-making, family time, and lots of love.
You follow a story wrapped in truth of love, laughter, friendship,
but wrought with heartache, unfair life events,
and ...the inevitable sadness.
But what you don't expect to gain from this book...
the simple love for your family again.
The pieces of life we often overlook,
the moments we neglect,
the family we forget,
the love we hide.
You remember the reasons for life itself.
I was so incredibly touched.
I lost my mother-too young,
and to me, the book spoke of times I want to cherish,
things that I wish I would have been given,
and it reminded me most of all,
I need to cherish every minute of every day!
You never know when your time here is done.
But lets be honest,
there are moments you will laugh,
moments you will cry,
moments you will want to throw the book,
and moments you will weep.
D. Love has captured a moment in life like no other I've ever read.Read more ›

What is your beauty today?
Mine was `Today Only'!
Rye Silcox is a 25 year old single mother to 10 year old Emily (Em). Just over a year ago, Rye was sadly diagnosed with a tumour on her brain - it's inoperable. Rye has spent the last year living back with her mother, going through the motions, and surviving in a bubble. Although she loves her family dearly, it's not until she runs into Jett Conner - an old school friend- that Rye realizes she has been holding her emotions back, scared to truely love and enjoy what she has left of her life.
Becoming re-aquainted with Jet changes Rye from a woman waiting to die, to a woman in love, fighting to enjoy every day to it's fullest.
Jett Conner is working as a physical therapist, not long out of the army. Having lost his mother at a young age, and the trauma of losing friends on their tour of duty, Jett doesn't know if he could cope if he lost any more loved ones. But after one walk with Em and Rye, Jett is well and truely smitten. Thus begins the journey of falling in love - a love that has a clock ticking against it- no matter how hard you wish or pray for a miracle.
Although most of the time, the story and writing flowed nicely, there were quite a few times that the writing would slip into past tense - just a word here or there - when the story is told in the present. Also there a few occasions, for example, the start of Jett and Rye's relationship, and after the convention and Vagas trip - that the story jumps forward by a few weeks, or even months.Read more ›
One of the reasons why I loved this book was because of Rye, her strengths, her weaknesses, love and understanding. She makes me feel I have gone through her motions throughout Today Only.
Em is Rye's daughter and throughout this book has strength beyond what I can comprehend a child to have. She touches the hearts of everyone and not in an annoying `favorite' way. She has wisdom I wish some grown-ups could have! The strength in the family is a page turner.
The love Em has for her mother is unique and very special. She took her mum to do a run with her and was proud to, which is what all families should be like. She goes for ice cream like children aged Ten do. She calls her mum "mama" and I like the innocence of that.
Today Only has a strong family connection of characters like Rye's mother ...... and Jet's father Madison. It is a family strength I wish I had 10% of but to no such luck.
Whilst all of her characters are very important in the book and all have a role in Rye's future, Rye herself is the main focus in the book. It is told through Rye and Jet's point of view and they both sing from the same hymn sheet when it comes to their feelings and shows a united front in that them being soul-mates.
The biggest theme of Today Only is Rye's illness and her strength to carry on and make sure her life is not dictated to by an hour glass. We all have the hourglass whether it being late for an appointment, an over run meeting at work. The book makes those feel non-existent when it is a life.Read more ›
