How can you ever love again when tragedy has crushed your heart?
Kathleen used to love life. She had plans, dreams, and faith in life; but that was before the accident that took it all away from her in an instant. Now that her beloved brother is dead and she's confined to a wheelchair, her future is but a dark cloud hovering above her head. How can she ever find the will to move on and keep living without him? Even the cares of the happy-go-lucky American physiotherapist who's helping her with her rehab therapies are all in vain. Life seems to have lost its meaning, until one night she receives an unexpected celestial visit…
Colin has been working as a physiotherapist in Dublin for almost five years, but he’s never bonded so much with a patient like he is bonding with Kathleen; there's something about those sad blue eyes that makes him want to help her, to take away the pain that reminds him so much of his own. Having lost both his parents in a plane crash when he was only sixteen, Colin knows how it feels to have someone you love taken so abruptly away from you, and he makes it his mission to help Kathleen find her faith in life again. But something changes along the way…
Sometimes love can work miracles. If you believe.
Kathleen lost her everything when her brother died, she didn’t want to believe in anything, just couldn’t let go of the fact he was gone now. Enter Colin, her physiotherapist who has taken her under his wing, wants to help her get better. All the good Colin can do Kathleen shoots down, holding on to her grief and loss. Can Colin change her mind? Does she the ability to move past her grief and live again? Is anything worth it?
First of all let me say I loved this book, it moved me and made me feel so many things. Anyone who has ever suffered a loss will be able to empathize with Kathleen, BUT…at the same time you root for Colin to break through to her and help her live again. My first name being Kathleen, I get the stubborn, I too am a stubborn soul and could see myself doing exactly what she did. I cannot say enough good things about this book, I recommend it highly. Thanks to Ms. Capizzi for giving me her book to read and review, it was a pleasure!! I give this book 5 stars.
Meet The Author
An avid reader since her childhood years and being an only child, Roberta always enjoyed the company of her fictional friends from the children’s books she loved reading, while she dreamed of writing her own stories one day.
It was when she discovered novels by authors Rosamunde Pilcher and Maeve Binchy in her teenage years that she realized it was time she put down in words the stories she had kept well hidden in her mind until then.
What started as a hobby, soon turned into a real passion and a way of life, until she could no longer keep the stories to herself, and decided to get over her fears and share them with the world.
Roberta lives in Italy, but her dream is to move out of her country and live either in a thatched cottage in the Irish countryside or in a country house with a swing on the back porch, somewhere in the United States, where she would love to spend her days writing novels as a full-time job, and maybe one day even get as far as writing a screenplay for a movie.
