The excerpt from this book says: Can three little words irrevocably change your life?
When the doctors inform Chloe Brennan that her pregnancy is “incompatible with life,” her subsequent choices will change her path forever.
She becomes one of the quiet, unsung heroes of this world, incredibly strong, yet somehow wrongly looked upon as damaged.
Three people will pierce Chloe’s existence: her husband, a stranger, and a precious baby.
One will say goodbye, one will say hello, and one will say both at the same time.
I’m With You is a novel about selfless love and the sacredness of life.
This book touched me in so many ways. It is a wonderful book dealing with a loss that is greater than anyone should ever have to endure. Everyone deals with loss in different ways, but the grief of losing a baby is so deep, so painful, so consuming and so misunderstood.
It shows the sadness of deep loss and grieving and being alone to deal with it. Everyone expects Chloe to move on, forget about it, get a life. She can’t and no one understands, not even her husband Mark. She wanted this baby more than anything. Even if she could only hold him for 5 minutes. Her husband, who was the love of her life, walks out on her. He can’t deal with her grieving anymore. It tells what happens to one woman dealing with all of these feelings and more; and how one friendship helps her to see that she’s not broken.
It is a story that will touch you in ways that you’ll never forget. Make you laugh, cry, get angry and love to hate some of the characters. Jack whose wife ran off with Mark, starts getting to know Chloe and sees that she is grieving and he is very worried about her. When they start getting to know each other she finally confides in him in ways that she has not been able to with anyone else.
It’s a love story, a story of both hope and lost hope. A wonderful story that will keep you turning the pages to find out what will happen next.
You would have to be a robot not to feel what is happening in this book. All the ups and downs. The new loves and lost loves. Who will be able to fall in love again. Will Chloe take Mark back or will she move on with her life now that she has finally learned how to live again. What will happen to Jack. Will his wife be able to get him to forgive him and love her again?
You can bet that once you start this book you will not be able to put it down. It is told in a way that makes you feel like you are right there with each character, dealing with the emotions they are. It will definitely make you cry, it did me. Some parts made me cry so hard but it was worth it. If you can’t feel the characters then it is not a good book and this one pulls you in from beginning to end. You will be laughing one minute, crying the next and wanting to punch someone in the end. It is a wonderful book that was written from the heart. This author did a fantastic job of portraying feelings that were real.
My favorite book of all time and will stay with me for a long time to come if not forever.
It is a 5 star read no doubt about it. I hope you will love it as much as I did, even through the tears.. There was romance, love and laughter too so not just a book that will keep you down. It is wonderful and be sure to read the last few pages at the end of the book. They explain so so much.
