doubt causing conflicting emotions for him and what he really wants This is a verycausing conflicting emotions for him and what he really wants This is a very turny story with lots of surprise reveals throughout once again as I said of the last book felt like an episode of a soap opera This is not a bad thing I used to love my daily soaps You just never knew what was Moonrise going to happen next Makes for some very engaging storytelling and keeps you on your toes I will admit that I wasn t very fond of Jenny But at the same time she wasrieving and her reactions and decisions were very conflicting and not well thought out as a result The ending did not surprise me but at the same time I found her roller coaster of emotions frustrating So the jury is out on how I feel about the outcomeAll in all this was a Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi great read probably not for everyone especially anyone who really doesn t want toet into a moral debate about the issue of in vitro fertilization I actually found this very eye opening Makes me want to ensure my wishes are loud and clear in my will when it comes to organ donation It s one of those things that will just make it easier on those we leave behind Thanks to the author for the complimentary copy of this book wwwktbookreviewscom This book pulled me in and hooked me by the various issues it explores One especially that I had never even thought about Great writing reat plot flawed but lovable characters Would make for thought provoking discussions in book clubs I look forward to the next boo. Jenny turns to best friend and attorney Steve Grant Steve wants to help Jenny but he has reservations and secrets of his own When something so private and simple turns public and complicated will Jenny relent What is Steve willing to sacrifice to help Jenny. ,
Twelve years older than her Gabe is a brilliant philanthropic doctor who is the father of 2 college aged children Jenny feels that she has it all in her marriage Love and two step children who she adores When Jenny and Gabe first ot married Jenny had decided that she did not want children but as time progresses she stars having doubts Andas destiny sometimes works she finds out that she is pregnant As Gabe and her Alien Alpha go on a mini vacation to celebrate their two year anniversary she attempts to find a way to tell Gabe about her pregnancy But before she is able to tell him the truth tragedy strikes and Gabe is hit by a car Ambulance uickly arrives at the scene and they transport him to the hospital but his condition is what the medical field calls DOA Dead on Arrival He is completely brain dead and he is put on life support As Jenny trys to decide what to do keep Gabe on life support take him off donate his organs tragedy strikes again and she miscarries her baby At this point all she can think about is that she can t lose her husband and her baby at once So as she donates his organs she also has one reuest she wants to extract some of his semen so can still have his baby This raises some eyebrows but none than Gabe s uncle George As his legaluardian George feels that this is completely illegal and tells Jenny she will take him to court and stop her Just writing about the plot of the story I can continue on an write an essay There is so much oing on that if I addressed all the key points of this book then this would be longest blog post EVER I bet you can tell just from those couple of paragraphs that this is an emotional book There are books that make you cry and then there are books that effect you so much that you can feel the main characters distress all the way to your bones and that is what this book did to me Even though this book was emotionally draining the writing and the plot development was so reat that I did not put this book down for one moment I was actually FORCED to put this book down when my Ipad battery died and I was no a very happy camper Reading about this way Jenny was attempting to pick up her life after Gabe s death was heartbreaking but yet so realistic Her determination and struggle at every turn was so inspiring As someone who just finished nursing school some of the challenges Jenny faced were ones we talked about in school And how it is so important to discuss with your love ones what your wishes regarding resuscitation are These are hard discussion but oh so necessary And then this court case This whole idea of whether Jenny had a right to her husbands sperm since he was unable to ive consent was so thought provoking I was completely torn in to There was the part of me that believed YES ive this woman a chance to have her dead husbands child And then there was the logical part of me that said maybe this is not such a ood idea All in all Theresa Rizzo
#does a reat #a reat at defending both sides of the argument and allowing the reader to come up with their own opinion During the court case some things are revealed from both sides Both Jenny and George have some skeletons in the closet I have to admit I completely did not see Jenny s twist coming And the
Way It Was Revealedit was revealed one that completely threw me off uard Not because there was a dramatic build up but because of how it was just thrown out in a memory I almost did not believe what I had read and had to Beautiful Ghosts go back and re read the scene George s secret I have to saw Iuessed correctly in a bit of foreshadowing in the beginning of the story AND YES THERESA IF YOU ARE READING THIS I GUESSED CORRECTLY I have Alexandra, Gone gone this far in this review and I have yet to discuss anotherreat part of this book When Jenny s world falls apart helping her pick up the pieces is Gabe and her best friend Steve He is her rock and shoulder to cry on during this difficult time But Gabe too has a secret And before you A Year in 120 Recipes guys allo thinking that this is an obvious love story F. Scott Fitzgerald girl s husband dies and he falls for his best friend it is everything BUT that because there is 2 big problems Steve is engaged to marry someone and else and second he thinks that Jenny s plan to have Gabe s baby is wrong There is so much to this amazing book and it honestly a MUST READ for everyone Original review found at was fortunate to receive an advanced copy of this book directly from the author in exchange for my honest thoughts I m not sure how she found me whether it be from Goodreads or my blog but I am surelad that she did This was a well written emotional account of the aftermath of a tragic accident Mix in the controversial issue of conceiving a child after someone has passed away and it has the formula for a captivating read The character development was really well done I
liked both Jenny and Steve from the very first page They were two individual charactersboth Jenny and Steve from the very first page They were two individual characters a strong bond of friendship and I could feel every emotion that each went through as the story progressed There were just enough secrets to keep you interested without having so many that it was unrealistic The relationship between these two was understated yet powerful at the same time I liked the fact that a controversial issue was the focal point of the story Normally when a story The Devil Hath Been Raised: A Documentary History of the Salem Village Witchcraft Outbreak of March 1692; Together With a Collection of Newly Located and Gathered Witchcraft Documents gets to the cour. Ated byrief she decides to preserve the best of their love by conceiving his child but Gabe’s family is adamantly opposed even willing to chance exposing long held family secrets to stop her Caught in a web of twisted motives and contentious legal issues.
