Overview

Twenty-year-old Leah Fischer's been in a state of collapse since the moment police arrived on her Toronto doorstep to inform her that boyfriend Bastien was killed in a car accident. After flunking out of university and cutting herself off from nearly everyone she knows, Leah's saved by Bastien's aunt who offers her a rent-free place to stay in a nearby town.Initially Leah keeps to herself, with no energy for anyone or anything else, but it's not long before her nurturing neighbors begin to become fixtures in Leah's life and a much needed part-time job forces her to interact with other members of the community. And when Leah is faced with another earth-shattering event, her perspective on life begins to shift again. Soon Leah's falling into a casual sexual relationship with Irish actor Liam Kellehan, who has troubles of his own, even as she continues to yearn for her dead boyfriend. Clearly she's not the person she thought she was-and maybe Liam isn't either.

This was a great book. Very emotional but so worth the read.

Good story telling what happens when your life comes to a standstill. The pace is slow, but that is OK: when you do not want your life to change, everything goes too fast. I love the main character, her struggles, her doubts. It is good to see how she comes to realize, ever so slowly, that lieve goes on and that in the end you'd better try to enjoy it.

Wow...this was an emotional story. My heart broke for Leah. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose someone you love in such a devastating way. She was lost without Bastian. Then she meets Liam and she starts to allow herself to heal. While their relationship certainly had it's obstacles, I really liked them as a couple. I also love that the author made it clear that while Leah was moving on, she never lost her memories of Bastian.  I'd definitely recommend this one. It is a bit sad, but the story is about healing, love, and self discovery. This was the first book I've read by this author and I will definitely check out her other books.

definitely worth the money! It was a little slow to start off with, but by the middle of the book, I couldn't put it down. And it's such a heart-wrenching story, it will be an emotional ride, but well worth it. And I love the ending! :)
