Blurb : “I will breathe for you.”
Some people’s bodies are built to run marathons. Others to lift and labour. And some are made so graceful their footsteps are barely heard. My body was built to be a vessel. It was Always You.
Maybelline Connors knows stars are not always as faultless as they appear. She knows life is not permanently concreted into its foundations and love can last a lifetime…even when a lifetime is shorter than one hoped.
Willard Connors knows that life will rob you. That dreams are just that—dreams. And no matter how hard one prays, a star riddled with faults will always be riddled with faults. What Will is yet to learn, is that he is stronger and braver than he ever imagined he could be. And that gifts from the heart leave a lasting imprint—an imprint unable to be erased.
With life there is love… with love there will always be life.
Review : I am kind of speechless about Always You by Belle Brooks even after days I am not sure what to say about this book that would not give away anything on this story.
I could voice my thoughts on how this reminds me of two books I read by accident – but mentioning the titles would result in 90% of all people knowing facts about this story as both books have been made into movies lately and many people know them.
Even bringing up another author to compare would give away to much so – no – you will be going into this book as blind as I did. With only one fair warning that I did not get. And that is : “Have tissues ready” – that’s it.
The story is written wonderful with great characters. As for the plot … the decisions that the leads make are very personal and private so to discuss if they are right or wrong is not something that can be done by a reviewer.
I feel it is one of the rare cases that you will have to go with the story even If I do not fully agree on everything. Which is also the reason why I could only give 4 instead of 5 stars even if I had enough tears to “cry me a river” while reading.
So yeah – great story – well written but with an emotional warning sign from my side because of a very though subject.
