I loved it! I've taken it so far into my heart it will absolutely stay with me forever. I have so much feeling for this book i cry every damn time i think about it or see a teaser.
I do not want to spoil the plot in anyway. This book covers the very serious, very real problem of PTSD.
Poppy, Connor and Brandon. Best friends since they were 10 years old. Friends forever.
Poppy and Brandon lose Connor to War. Heartbroken both of them struggle with his loss. They deal with it in very different ways. Poppy is determined to carry on for him. Brandon is lost without him.
The rest of the story tells of the fallout of war and death. Poppy and Brandon are never the same again.
I'm now at the part of struggling with my words. I'm not even joking when i say that I'm crying writing this.
3 Best Friends.
Poppy is so strong. She may not think she is but she is. She's determined to hold Brandon together and try and save him from himself, and maybe save herself in the process. She's not sure how to do it but god does she try her best. He's all she has left in the world. The thing is, she loved Connor. He was her husband and best friend, but she also had another love. Brandon. She'd always loved them both. Her love for Brandon keeps her going. She's determined that if they stick together they can get through anything. She's definitely a glass half full girl and she tried to bring Brandon out of the dark
Brandon... I'm actually in love with him.Read more ›
Anyway, that aside, I did enjoy this book. There is so many messages portrayed in this book and I'm all for trying to raise awareness for PTSD for veterans.
Poppy and Branden go n through an emotional rollercoaster from page one. At a certain point in the book I thought they were going to turn the corner, s I didn't expect that ending, but in all fairness PTSD does that and I admire that the authors took it in this direction.
Brandon did save Poppy in the end, just not in the way I thought from reading it throughout. Yes, it is a touching book. It deals with a lot of issues that will touch many people.
I do look forward to the next book, because Hope was a good secondary character in this book. I actually thought at one point the secondary characters carried the book forward, because with just Branden and Poppy the story would have been bland and depressing! Hope gave the story a different edge and you never knew what was coming out of her mouth next!
All in all, I did enjoy this book. It is one you should pick up and give a go.
Wars are fought and won and fought and lost, but wars are never easy and you might lose a loved one or you may lose yourself to it.
You can win some battles here and there, but winning a war is damn near impossible, especially when sometimes the war is inside you.
The writing in this book showed how profound PTSD can affect not only the survivor, but those close to them too.This was a high emotionally read that hits you hard from this unconventional love story of heartbreak.
Not wanting to give anything away, this is definitely a book you need to read understand and grasp how each character is affected and deals with the consequences of what might happen after war.
Poppy is widow after her husband and best friend Connor is killed at war, where he was serving with Brandon, their other friend, they all grew up close, so what will happen when it's just the two of them, can they help each other be less broken.
You may make it back from war alive, but doesn't mean you're living, sometimes you just exist, hoping the grief stops drowning you and the ones you love.
I liked that this was based in Britain, I've read many American based PTSD books, but this was refreshing and I loved the writing from both authors.
It's not an easy book to read it deals with real life, but it's one I think readers should pick up
