"Poor recording quality"
Unfortunately this book is marred by almost constant background noise in the recording. Characters grew on me and story held my interest.
"Wonderful characters. Uplifting story."
I love the characters and the storyline that focused on the power of love and overcoming life's heartbreaks,
"always a good story"
I love Marie Force. her stories are intriguing, her characters lovable, her writing is excellent!!! she never disappoints!
Yes, the story was awesome. Just to imagine yourself being someone in a coma for three years and to wake up one day to your life as you know it gone and you are left to pick up the pieces in the same house.
It's a lesson in forgiving and moving on.
Clare and Aiden.. You have Clare who was in a coma for three years after begin raped and feeling no hope in life to having a husband in love with another women who was pregnant by him and who took care of your daughters while you were in the coma. She had to figure out where she belonged with their life after coming home to a house her husband had built for her but also shared it with another women.
Then you have Aiden who once had a wife and soon to be a father with a hopeful medical career as a Cardiolgist and to have that taken all away due to cancer is heart breaking..
The two of them together make an awesome couple.
When Maggie had her accident and Clare faced that kind of trauma to no know whether her youngest daughter was going to wake up and to have her middle daughter reunited with her family after her father had disowned her. I cried for sure.
Also when Aiden visited the grave site for the first time where is wife and son were buried.
Awesome book and looking forward to the third book.
"Story was interesting"
This is the second book in this series and while I thought the book should have been mostly about Claire, a good portion of the book is centered around her daughter Kate. I had a really hard time with Kate's story in this book, older man-young girl....
Narration was great again, and I loved Aidan and Claire's story. The series has been a good series overall, so far.
I am a real fan of this artist. The story is captivating! However, the narration leaves so much to be desired AND the background noise is extremely aggravating. With this being said...I'm looking forward to moving on to the 3rd in the series. For some reason, the 4th isn't available and I urge Audible to offer it ASAP!
