This was a heart warming and captivating read. I couldn't turn away from it. Fan of If I Stay will enjoy this novel. But I warn you, keep your tissues handy! A woman sits in a coma and listens to the world around her. Unable to communicate at all, everyone has given up hope. No one knows that she is still in there and fighting to get out. Then Thibault finds himself confessing all his thoughts to her after ducking into her hospital room. He has faith that she hears him and is not giving up. This was a easy read that I felt my self falling in love with day after day. This si one of those books I don't have a whole lot to say about other than I loved it. It was a heart warming and all around good feeling read.


A modern take on Sleeping Beauty, for fans of Jojo Moyes. Elsa is spending her thirtieth birthday in the hospital bed where she's lain for months after a devastating mountain accident. Unable to speak, see, or move, she appears to be in an irreversible coma, but her friends and family don't know that she's regained the power of hearing. That day, a stranger named Thibault enters the hospital to visit his brother, who's just been injured in an accident that killed two young girls. He instead seeks refuge in the room where Elsa lies, and quickly becomes intrigued by the young woman, returning day after day to sit beside her, convinced that his words are being heard. As their connection grows, the doctors deliver a devastating blow to her family. Is it possible that Thibault knows something no one else does, and can he reach her before it's too late?
