Anybody can change his/her mind at the end.
I liked the first couple of chapters, where I got to know the main characters. Actually, I found them pretty interesting and I wanted to keep reading. However, something happened along the way.
The dialogues or maybe the development of certain situations seemed too shallow to me. I couldn’t connect with the story or feel for the characters as I had done at first.
The relationship between Mia and Jake didn’t fully reach my heart. It might sound weird, but I believe there wasn’t enough tension between them to keep me interested. I didn’t have the urgency to know what was going to happen next, because everything got kind of predictable.
Nevertheless, I could identify with some of their personal struggles. I guess I have a tendency to overthink stuff, so it was good for me to see all the damage it can cause.
Also, I liked the fact that this book somehow included the pain some families go through when dealing with Alzheimer, but I believe it wasn’t given the depth it deserved.
I’m really sorry I couldn’t love it more, but maybe I was just expecting something different.
**I received a copy of this book from Bethany House through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own**
+ “The thrill was in the chase, the gamble, the fun of beating the odds.”
+ “Sometimes love needed to be put into words. Other times words got in the way, and a touch or a hug, or just belonging, said more than enough.”
+ “That’s the problem when a man makes a stupid mistake. God forgives and we heal, but the consequences don’t disappear.”
