You know me. You know who I am. What I am.
Damaged. Confused. Alone.
You feel sorry for me. You pity me.
You know what I’ve done. What I’ve given up. Who I’ve given up.
You try to understand what I’ve been through and how I can possibly go on with my life. But you can’t possibly understand.
I’ve lost too much. Sacrificed too much. Given up everything so that I can find myself.
Well I’m done. I’m done walking away from everything that matters. It’s time for me to heal.
It’s MY TURN to earn…
OMG!! I was waiting impatiently for Tabitha’s story. I fell madly, deeply in love with her in Dear Emily. I just wanted to go through the book and swoop her up so I could take care of her….protect her and love her. Tabitha grows so much in this book. She becomes whole in so many ways. She finds herself and she finally, finally gets a break. Trudy did a beautiful and fantastic job of telling Tabitha’s story. I was left completely and utterly happy at the end and am now impatiently waiting for Seth’s book. He is my final piece of this beautiful, messed up puzzle. He so deserves as much happiness as everyone else.
I also have a new love….Alex. Oh my poor Alex. You do not know much about Alex in Dear Emily. You have a basic idea but he truly comes to life in Dear Tabitha. You learn how both of them tick with the dual POV’s of their past and presents. You learn what broke them to begin with and your heart breaks with them. It will shatter as you see them struggle with everything Alex learns Tabitha has gone through while he was gone plus what they go through together now that he is back. But…..when you see them come out the other end, your heart will soar. Thier HEA is just beautiful and completely fitting for them.
**Sigh** I always say….an epilogue, as silly as it sounds, can make or break a book. If you write a great book but destroy their ending, it will hurt you. Trudy delivers the most poetic and heartbreaking epilogue. One that will make your heart sing but cry in the same breath because again, Seth is the final piece of the puzzle. He deserves his HEA and you want him to have it desperately.
A definite must read series. If you have not tried it….you are missing out.
