I guess this is it, huh? After fourteen years together, starting a life of our own on this island, five deployments and countless letters I’ve written you through it all, I finally go out to the mailbox and see something I’ve always dreamed of: an envelope with your handwriting on it. For one moment, I actually thought you’d changed your mind, that all the awful things you said to me were just your way of coping after everything you’d been through. I was still here, Fisher. I was still here, holding my breath, waiting for you to come back even though you told me you never would. You always said you’d find your way back to me. Out of all the lies you’ve told me, this one hurts the most.
Enclosed you will find the signed divorce papers, as requested.
I hope you find what you’re looking for. I’m sorry it wasn’t me.
To get the ending they want, Lucy and Fisher will have to go back to the beginning. Through the good and the bad, they’ll be reminded of why they always made their way back to each other, and why this time, one way or another, it will be the last time.
My 5 Star Review
I have sat here a few times trying to figure out how I want to write this review. This is one of those books that you know you need to write the best review possible but without giving the whole story away.
This book is beyond love and loss. It's about pain and healing. It is heart wrenching and emotional. It is raw and will cut you to the bone. At the same time, it will give you the warm fuzzies in your soul.
PTSD is one of the most complex disorders. It can be caused by multiple acts or just one single act. It's something that people struggle with for most of their lives. The thoughts and memories eat away at not just your brain, but your soul. Could you imagine being stuck in your own head... reliving some of the most horrific things over and over again?
Fisher is one of the most complex, yet easy characters I have come across. I can be quoted at one point saying he is an a-hole. But I can't truly say that. Sure, his actions define it. However, the reasons for his actions contradict that. With all of his suffering, he did what he truly thought he wanted. He was in a dark place and couldn't climb his way out.
Lucy was destroyed by the love of her life. Her love wasn't enough to help heal her husband. Now she finds herself alone and coping with a broken heart.
I don't know how many ways I can tell you that this is, without a doubt, one of the best reads you will come across!!! This book is in the Mia Sheridan category of rip out your heart, then slowly mend it back together story. Tara is truly finding her voice with this one. She has given us so many different genres of books already. This, by far, is her best work yet. You will be able to feel her pouring her heart and soul into her words as you read this book!
