There are quite a few funny moments, especially when she comes into contact with newer technology. I have to say her husband does some sweet things which made my heart melt. It wasn't all light though, there are some disagreements and anger issues which are yet another thing Candice has to deal with. She does manage to make friends though, and slowly she figures out how to live when she's forgotten so much of her past. This is an emotional read, I definitely felt like I was Candice, her trials are different to mine but I could relate to feeling uncertain in life and unsure of what to do. Keep the tissues at the ready. It's already on my reread pile!

Through Infinity, Libby Austin
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, women’s fiction
I like to mix and match my books so I’ve something for whatever mood I’m in to read. this one sounded intriguing but its been sitting there looking at me for the past week, waiting for me to be in the right frame of mind. I find if I read something I’m not in the mood for I don’t enjoy it so well, and with review books it’s important not to let anything other than the book influence my views. well IMO anyway ; )
So yesterday I’d had my fill of fantasy, didn’t want yet another drama filled angsty romance ( though I do love those), and wasn’t in the mood for a historical read. I just wanted something different so it was the turn of Through Infinity. A strange title I thought, but as you get towards the end of the story it makes sense and is incredibly apt. Its a moving story, a triumph of love over adversity. Hurrah too for Libby including a character with a disability and portraying them positively, not as some poor beleaguered, downtrodden soul needing pity, but someone who is more than the disability, where its simply just another facet of character. That made the book extra special for me. When we think of most of the population – we think that’s “normal” but in fact we’re all very different and have issues, and I really think this idea of Normal is false, and maybe if we could celebrate our differences as simply another part of the person we are life would be so much easier all round. Aaand that’s my rant for today ; )
I so felt for them all, Candy losing all memory of her family after a simple fall – what a nightmare that must be. Waking up thinking you’re 23 and finding that in fact you’re nearly 40 and married with four kids....Read more ›
Candice (Candy) doesn't remember the past eighteen years because of her amnesia. This means that she doesn't remember her husband or her children. Suddenly she has to rediscover her love for them and to act as their mother again. Although she finds it very frustrating she is surrounded by people who love her as she begins to rediscover her old life. This is a promising plot but the author doesn't do much with it - I had expected more tension or misunderstandings than actually exist. On a couple of occasions Jason hides facts from her but she soon finds these out and is nowhere near as annoyed with him as I would have been under the same circumstances. The rediscovery of her love for her husband and children is quite touching in places but it seems amazingly straightforward.
I felt that this book could have been a lot more engaging with a few more twists. I thought that their son Dawson was an unrealistic portrayal of a child of his age. There was also a peculiar scene in the book that I didn't really understand where Jason and Candy went to a Sunday morning sex show based on a church service which seemed out of character for the rest of the book.

I have to be honest here, I struggled with my review. This wasn't because Through Infinity wasn't a good book but because I'm so used to a book with hot steamy sex and a storyline that might throw in a huge secret that gives the husband and wife an additional challenge to overcome. As Libby Austin says in her Dear Reader notes, if you are looking for that type of story this isn't it.
Since we've read the synopsis a few times already I will just skip to my thoughts on the book...
I thought Through Infinity was a fun read. Very warm and very much a "feel good" book. I saw Candice struggle and I could feel her frustration but her family was always a constant support. I loved Jason and his unconditional love. His obvious love for her gave me butterflies. The children made me laugh out loud and brought a dynamic to the story I appreciated. They added a real life element when they argued but made me smile when they pulled together and offered support.
All in all, Through Infinity left me smiling. I give it 4 stars because I do wish it had just a bit ...more. This is why I struggled with my review. I can't place my finger on it but I feel I needed more of something to keep my interest. A twist? A conflict? A fight with Jason? I'm just not sure.
That said, I will recommend this book to anyone who needs a lift me up book that will leave them with a warm heart.
Good job Libby Austin.
The story flows at a rapid pace and I found it very hard to put down. I loved how supportive Jason and Candy's families were of this difficult time for their family and how the story focused on the strength family can provide. I especially enjoyed the kids and seeing how they familiarized themselves with their mother again.
There were moments when I was teary eyed, moments when I giggled and smiled, and moments when I laughed out loud. I loved seeing Candy "find" herself and what she wanted. I love Jason's integrity and his will power. I'm looking for a man like that. I really enjoyed seeing their love blossom again. I have a feeling their story will be continuing and I'm looking forward to it.
Libby Austin's debut novel is beautiful and I'm really looking forward to more books from her. I was slightly surprised at how much I enjoyed this "middle-aged" love story. It really wasn't about how old they were, but all about finding love again. The story wasn't melt your pages hot, but it still had some heat and lots of chemistry between Jason and Candice.
Candice wakes up in the hospital not remembering the past 18 years of her life including the love of her life, Jason and their four children. Her only memory is her parents, believing she’s 23 and still in college.
You can’t help but fall in love with Jason and the kids. Talk about melt your heart repeatedly. The kind of real love that describes this family is “unconditional love.” Regardless of the struggles Candice faces to gain her life back, they’re right there beside her every step of the way sharing memories and making new ones. Not only have they won Candice’s heart but mine as well, “through infinity and beyond…forever and a day.”
