Synopsis

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.

Mari’s Review

I think this is first time in a long time a book has literally left me speechless.  We meet Wrynn and her Children and we see she is alone because her husband is gone.  Through a series of flashback as see Wrynn meeting Tripp for the first time in the 3rd grade.  Wrynn, her twin Liam and Tripp were inseparable.  The three were best friends and grew up together and due to a crappy family life Tripp spends more and more time with Wrynn’s family who has more than enough love for him.  Then high school hits and suddenly life changes as Tipp and Wrynn transition from friends to being a couple.  Liam is still there with them and the bond the three share and the way this beautiful relationship develops is breathtaking.  We go through a series of flashback from past to present,everything Wrynn has been through with her soul mate and other half  Tripp.  After Tripp has been gone 3 years she finally opens a box that was given to her upon Tripp’s death and the letter he leaves her HOLY SHIT bring out the Kleenex.  Then the biggest surprise of the book comes and HOLY SHIT bring out the Kleenex. I was literally blown away by all that happened as I read the tale of Wrynn and Tripp’s love as told through flashbacks and then watching Wrynn try to come to terms with life without Tripp.  Liam as a little bit of cliffy in this story so it leaves me wondering is he getting his own book.  This story is simply a beautiful tale and I encourage everyone to purchase it today.  Buy a copy for yourself and gift a copy to a friend. Yeah, it’s that good!  I’m talking fantastic.  Katie is a brilliant storyteller and I cannot wait to see what else she bring us in the future.

About the Author

If you are reading this, I think you should know that “About me” sounds so very pretentious to me. I guess that is what I am supposed to write about, so here it goes!

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!
