Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday’s hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow’s promises.
I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him.
I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.
This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.
Oh. My. Heart. Brittainy C. Cherry just has a way of emotionally connecting you to a book that it will be one of the books that will stay with you. The depth of story and character development that Cherry gives me is unbelievable and unique to her. Every time I am tired of the monotony of some of the books I read and I am looking for something that rocks my world, this is one of the authors that I look to. Cherry writes profound stories that make a difference.
I loved absolutely everything about this book. I loved the childhood best friends to lovers trope, the emotional healing, the silence, and so much more. This story was told brilliantly and in the way it needed to be told for this couple. I thought the pace was great, the writing was phenomenal, and the growth was outstanding.
Brooks. This hero is one for the record books. I loved how patient and understanding he was and how he always made sure that Maggie was never alone. He learned to read her silence and strived to know everything about her. The bond they shared was beautiful and I honestly could not get enough of it. Brooks is protective and sweet and just…there aren’t enough words. I felt that he gained an even deeper understanding of Maggie through his own pain that connected them even more. I freaking love Brooks.
Sweet Maggie May. I wanted to wrap this girl up after her voice was stolen and for many years after. I understood her in a way that was completely different. I understood her silence, her desire to read about her adventures when she could not experience them, and the strength she displays. This girl is the furthest thing from selfish and is trying to find her voice in a world where devils can take it in a moment of time. Maggie’s character development was my favorite in this book because I felt so connected with her.
Brittainy C. Cherry, don’t ever stop writing because your stories matter.
