This was my first book by Chautona and I have to say, Yay! I have just found another author I enjoy! It was tough to put this one down and I had it read in just a few days. She did an amazing job of writing a compelling story that felt believable and yet, I sure hope it doesn't happen to me.
The characters drew me in immediately. I struggled with Dani, the main character. She had some really good qualities, or at least the new Dani, now Ella did. But she also grated just a little on my nerves, and I can't really put my finger on why. Some times I wanted to cheer her on and praise her for all she was accomplishing and other times I wanted to wring her neck. David her husband was probably my favorite character, mostly I guess because he was somewhat of a hero. He was there for her regardless and he could easily have chosen an out. Another character I really liked was Charity. This woman made the people from the Bible seem like her best friends and she could totally give you a Bible character to relate to for whatever situation you found yourself in. She inspired me.
I thought the emotional tension in the book was very real! I cannot imagine waking up one day and not knowing who I was, or on the flip side, not being remembered by my spouse or parent. Sometimes I wanted to laugh and sometimes I wanted to cry, or maybe scream! I think Chautona drew out a part of me, I would rather not deal with LOL. I loved the way Ella and David worked through their differences, how the pastor helped David see what he needed to do, and how David was so patient in waiting on Ella, and yet it was obvious that he struggled too!
Thank you Chautona for writing an amazing book! One that is still on my mind as I cannot get these characters out of my head. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
I would recommend this book for older teens and adults.
