Blurb:

Some people are blessed to find that one certain person who completes them.

Wrynn’s yesterdays were what others only dream of having. She and Tripp were the best of friends before they even thought about love. They had the fairy tale life where ‘like’ turns into ‘love’, and ‘love’ becomes ‘happily ever after’.

What happens when life conspires against you, and snatches your soul mate from your arms?

…only her forever love ended much too soon.

Broken beyond her own ability to repair, Wrynn boxes up her grief and attempts to raise her three girls the best she can on her own. As time slowly passes, Wrynn relives her life with Tripp while struggling most days to get out of bed. She is reminded of him at every turn.

How do you set your grief and anguish aside? How do you pick up the shattered pieces, put those pieces back together again, and try to move on?

Wrynn tries to find the joy in life every single day through her daughters, family, and friends. Her twin brother Liam has dedicated himself to helping Wrynn put her life back together after losing his own love. On the other hand, her mother-in-law lives to torment her at every turn. Wrynn can’t even find a chance to breathe, much less a desire to somehow search for her tomorrow.

My Review:

Please be warned that you will need hell of alot of tissues at the ready, as this will make you cry. And before you say “meh” ….this is an UGLY CRY!

Face Drenched

Covered in blotches

Snot dribbling sort of cry…..Well for me it was!

Would you be able to cope from the loss of a loved one?

Be able to function a normal day without rehashing all those memories?

Wrynn had a wonderful life, full of love, laughter, adventure and full of family promises, that is of course until the worst day of her life.!

I don’t really want to spoil the plot for you, but this was an emotional rollercoaster of emotions in the worst kind! After re-living my own personal feelings and emotions of the 9/11 event, it all came back to the forefront when the author mentioned those horrifying events in this book! and still to this very day I’m pretty sure everyone in the UK, US and everywhere else worldwide will re-open those wounds and feelings when they read that section of the book! I commend you for that Kathryn.

Words can’t really describe what I was feeling throughout this! I was more than heartbroken for Wrynn and her 3 little angels, more than sympathised with all the shite Wrynn had to live through from Mother Tidwell.

One thing that stood out to me whilst reading this and I loved the author for, was the past/present chapters in the book! I loved that one minute we were in the past with Wrynn living out her dream with her “soul mate” Tripp living their teenage lives to the full, then the next minute were back in the present, with Wrynn and her everyday battles. We got to see both sides of the fence and I know I got the whole story, not part of.

Yes….So I ugly cried throughout this book, but what really got to me, was towards the end. I don’t think someone can survive what just happened there. I know it was good intentions and all but I’m left feeling………Yeah I don’t know. I don’t know whether to hunt you down and smack you over the head for all these pent up feelings or create something that is worse than an UGLY CRY?

But above at that, this was a FANTASTIC read, and I am glad to of read this!

Book Highlight – The Forgotten Ones By Laura Howard

Title: The Forgotten OnesAuthor: Laura Howard

Genre: New Adult Fantasy

Series: The Danaan Trilogy #1

Published: April 28, 2013

Allison O’Malley’s plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she’s been in love with for as long as she can remember.

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison’s mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn’t trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother’s sanity.

Laura Howard lives in New Hampshire with her husband and four children. Her obsession with books began at the age of 6 when she got her first library card. Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High and other girly novels were routinely devoured in single sittings. Books took a backseat to diapers when she had her first child. It wasn’t until the release of a little novel called Twilight, 8 years later, that she rediscovered her love of fiction. Soon after, her own characters began to make themselves known. The Forgotten Ones is her first published novel.
