Magdalena DeLuca based her life around one sentence. Seven words that forever changed her outlook on life. She attempted and failed numerous times to remain hopeful. When her world came crashing down yet again, she just knew the one sentence that haunted her had finally become her reality.

Weston Corbin was faced with harsh consequences when the one person he believed would never leave suddenly walked away, leaving him with more questions than answers. With no other option, he went back to a place that he never shouldÔÇÖve left. Home.

Happenstance brought them together. Fears bound them for life. Can two strangers show each other how to live instead of merely existing? Or will what they think they know overpower any semblance of a normal life?

This is a story unlike any other IÔÇÖve read.┬á Sure, itÔÇÖs a tale of loss and how itÔÇÖs dealt with. However, be prepared to be taken for an unexpected ride.┬á The depth of tragedy certainly makes you take stock of what you have in your life.

As you walk the path with Magdalena, you see how she stops living.┬á┬á Her life completely stagnates out of fear; she retreats into herself and just seemingly exists.┬á Her life becomes a desolate island and she doesnÔÇÖt allow any visitors.┬á Watching her continued pain was excruciating at times.┬á Weston was the only person to breach her walls.┬á His presence in her life seems to be to break the chains of desolation.

So what did I take from this story?  Spare a moment and give thanks rather than waiting for the worst.  Life passes quickly so enjoy the moment and those you love around you.  The plot certainly takes on a few twists and turns, leaving you thinking after the last page.  Without giving any spoilers, I will suggest you look up the Mandela Effect after you finish the book.  It certainly put some of the story into perspective for me.

It was an interesting tale.  Not exactly what I expected when I read the synopsis, but certainly a well written and intriguing story.  Worth the read!

A.M. Guilliams was raised in a small town located in Southern Virginia and even though she moved to the city in her early twenties, sheÔÇÖs still a country girl at heart. She loves being in the outdoors, traveling to new places, and spending time with her family. As a teenager, A.M. Guilliams played around with writing, but it wasnÔÇÖt until 2013 that she decided to put her criminal justice degree to work and publish her first Romantic Suspense Novel, Beautifully Tainted. If you canÔÇÖt find her in the writing cave, sheÔÇÖs probably enjoying her time with her husband, two daughters, and son; or throwing the ball around in the river for the family German Sheppard, and Chocolate Lab.
