This is one of the most beautiful books I've ever read. It was an absolute roller-coaster of emotions, an exceedingly captivating story of love and loss. It was simply amazing.
Henry and Sam are a loving couple living their dreamed life, until tragedy strikes and the plane where Henry is traveling crashed. Now Henry has to deal with the uncertainty that his new life brings and Sam has to struggle with the loss of his beloved. Will they be able to face what life has prepared for them?
The structure of the book was different from everything I've ever read. It was so nice to see the different moments in time presented in each chapter and they worked perfectly to take the reader into Sam and Henry's story. The plot was brilliant and thrilling; it was so hard to know what might happen next. It got my attention since the first pages and it kept a very intense pace alternate with slow and sweet moments, very appropriate for the way the story was being told.
It was a very difficult book to read because of all the emotion it contain and yet, I felt like that was the strongest part of it. It was so devastating and truly painful, but it always kept some sense of hope.
The relationship of Sam and Henry was the most beautiful thing I've seen. It was so easy to feel their love and their despair. The author made a fantastic job transmitting the characters' feelings. It create a very believable love story. I don't think anyone who read it would have a doubt of how strong Sam and Henry's love was; it was a delight to read.
The secondary characters were also very nicely made. I don't recall a single character, no matter how small it seemed to be, that didn't bring something interesting to the story. And it was also good to see how all of them have some flaws, I think it made them more realistic.
Overall it was absolutely amazing. I would recommend it to any reader who loves romance and who loves a good plot.
