Some people are blessed to find that one certain person who completes them.
Wrynn’s yesterdays were what others only dream of having. She and Tripp were the best of friends before they even thought about love. They had the fairy tale life where ‘like’ turns into ‘love’, and ‘love’ becomes ‘happily ever after’.
What happens when life conspires against you, and snatches your soul mate from your arms?
…only her forever love ended much too soon.
Broken beyond her own ability to repair, Wrynn boxes up her grief and attempts to raise her three girls the best she can on her own. As time slowly passes, Wrynn relives her life with Tripp while struggling most days to get out of bed. She is reminded of him at every turn.
How do you set your grief and anguish aside? How do you pick up the shattered pieces, put those pieces back together again, and try to move on?
Wrynn tries to find the joy in life every single day through her daughters, family, and friends. Her twin brother Liam has dedicated himself to helping Wrynn put her life back together after losing his own love. On the other hand, her mother-in-law lives to torment her at every turn. Wrynn can’t even find a chance to breathe, much less a desire to somehow search for her tomorrow.
Wrynn has lost her life as she knew it when Tripp, her childhood love, died in war. He left her with three beautiful daughters that Wrynn struggles to raise due to her debilitating grief. She is very lucky to have the help of her parents and twin brother Liam and the unfortunate help of her monster-in-law, Mother Tidwell. We watch as Wrynn gets her life back and slowly reconnects with the world as she comes to terms with every day life without Tripp.
This story has a dual time POV. We hear one chapter from the present and then we go onto the past for one chapter. I couldn’t get enough of the past story. It was a romance made for the movies and so sweet. I felt myself falling in love with Tripp as Wrynn did. The extra kicker was the way her, Tripp, and Liam all grew up together and Tripp was welcomed so easily into their family. The present part of the story was also very empowering as we watch Wrynn deal with her grief and realize she needs to become the person she once was even without Tripp being in her life.
So this story took me on an emotional roller coaster. I had to know more of how her and Tripp came to be and the events that led him to enroll into the Army where she would lose him. The way he proposed was so sweet, I found myself wanting to swap spots with her. If only I could find a man as wonderfully sweet as that in real life. Not only was it an emotional roller coaster, there were some serious bombs dropped in this book. Some happy, some sad but I loved them all the same. Liam had a intriguing story as well and I am hoping he gets his own book (it was made to seem like there would be) and I look forward to reading it when and if that time comes. I really enjoyed this story and felt my eyes “watering” a few times, okay maybe more than a few.
I recommend it to anyone that loves a sweet romance, some heartbreak, and second chances.
Kathryn is a simple country girl who likes to spend time with her hubba, hunka hubby, her three kids and her friends. She loves to cook and really loves to eat! During the spring and summer, you will more than likely find her outside puttering around in her garden. When the veggies start coming in, she will probably be sweating over a hot canner in the kitchen, canning all the goodies she is blessed with. Kathryn likes to hike and go camping, and as a Girl Scout leader, she gets to do this pretty often! On cold winter nights, you will probably find her wrapped in a warm blanket, lost in a good book, while sitting in her rocking chair on the front porch!
Kathryn was born and raised in North Carolina, and while she loves to travel, she can’t imagine ever leaving the mountains that she has come to call home. Not a day goes by that Kathryn doesn’t thank God for abundantly blessing her. He has been so good to her, and she is very grateful. She holds Jeremiah 29:11 very close to her heart and believes it with every fiber of her being. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Kathryn loves flip flops, chocolate, sweet tea and dirt between her toes. As far back as she can remember, she’s had a book in her hand. Reading has carried her to places she will never go. It has introduced her to people that she will never meet. When life is great and when it is rough, she’s always been able to find a book to carry her through. She finally decided to write down some of the stories in her head (yes, be scared) and heart after dawdling around and wasting years dreaming. She hopes you enjoy reading those stories as much as she loves writing them!
