I'm just an average 22 year old college student, currently living in Iowa. I love fiction books, mostly romance.
The beginning of this novel drew me in right away. How does one react when they're biggest dreams are ripped away from them far too soon? How easy is it to move on without becoming a shell of your former self?
Megara is living a gray life. Her life has become bland and numb after losing so many that she's cared for. Her life is no longer colorful, bright, or filled with happiness. She's simply going through the motions of living for her husband's political career.
A visitor from her past has been haunting her for years. Could that visitor have been real or just a dream? Traveling with her husband has Megara finding the gravestone of Rory O'Dannon, an Irish poet. One of his poems reminds her of something her visitor once said to her.
An accident has her choosing the color of her world. She must choose if she wishes to continue living in gray or something different. Her choice leads her to Rory.
Parts of the novel was slow moving, other parts seemed rushed. I loved the parts that had Megara interacting with Rory and those close to Rory. She seemed far more alive than she had before.
I just wish the ending or epilogue didn't skip about 60 years. I wish I could have read more about Megara and her growing relationship and changes in life.
I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
