All her life, Brynn Michaels has fought to escape the demons, from her childhood, that continue to haunt her. She is thwarted at every turn to find the peace and happiness she so desperately seeks. Just as something promising happens in her life, Brynn is involved in a devastating car accident that nearly kills her. Those who love Brynn suffer during the long years she remains in a coma. Her only child, a daughter named Eva, searches for her own elusive happiness. Eva must wrestle with the everyday emptiness she feels without her mother’s guidance and love. Adam, Brynn’s estranged husband, has spiraled into a sea of dangerous despair. Unable to let her go, he turns to the only thing that has ever given him comfort. Brynn’s lover Nick, unable to forget her, is haunted with the memories of their love and the life they were never able to share. Joy finally arrives with Eva’s wedding and excitement of her pregnancy, but when danger suddenly arises, everyone is forced to reevaluate who they have become and what they must do to protect the family. When things become the most bleak, long-time family friend, Jack Palmer, arrives, bringing with him the hope that true happiness is indeed possible. In this complex and thrilling finale to the Eva Series, author Jennifer Sivec explores how long love can truly last and how far one is willing to go to finally have it.
Brynn is still in a coma, 20 years later and life has continued on without her. Her daughter is all grown up and is ready to get married….but she still yearns for her mom. The plot is unique, and I did enjoy it, however, the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is that the odds of this really being able to happen are so impossible that the reader doesn’t buy into the story 100%. I felt like I always had this “yeah, ok, whatever-ness” going on in the back of my mind that the story just didn’t click at this point.
The plot is unpredictable, the characters compelling, and the karma is almost instant, but there is a lot going on….there are a lot of sub-stories that the reader really needs to pay attention. This is not a mindless read, this is the creator of book hang-overs….the reason that no book after this one will compare….it’s just a lot. It’s not bad being a lot, it is just a lot to tackle, comprehend and read….and the author does an amazing job with weaving the tale for the reader. She has them laughing, crying, yelling, and at times shaking their head in pure disbelief. This book has all of the feels and it takes no prisoners.
If you haven’t read anything by this author, you need to start with this series and hold on tight – it’s a bumpy ride! Sit back and be prepared to think about nothing but this story and these characters for days to come.
