5 HUGE Stars
Broken. This book not only broke me, but it spent the needed time to also heal me. I haven't read a novel this emotionally rich in a long time. The True Story of Atticus and Hazel is a story of incredible love and the fight we wage to weather its storm.
Atticus and Hazel's story entwines you to the core and takes you on an emotional ride that you can't close your eyes for. Once I got invested there was no going back.
When they were falling in love, so was I.
When they were going through a patch in their relationship that we have ALL done, I remembered when I was in a similar spot.
and when they broke.
This story sheds light on a hard reality that not many romance novels breech. It doesn't give you that HEA that you expect, but it does give you one that you will never, ever forget.
Iw as invested in the characters as much as I was the story line. At the end of the novel I felt like I just wanted to call them up for dinner. You are so engulfed in this book that the lines of reality and fiction blur.
I don't know when I'll recover from this beautiful novel, but I do know for a fact it is one of my top reads of the year.
