Voices surround Anna as she lies on her hospital bed, but she cannot answer them. Her voice has been taken, along with her mobility and her sight. She can hear the nurses chattering and her family that come to visit. Her mum cries a lot and her dad struggles to deal with what he sees. Life used to be good for Anna, but life can change in a heartbeat, as she knows so well.
And then there are the people we think we know. When the smile hides the anger. When the beauty hides the beast.
Only Anna knows the truth, but Anna cannot speak.
Everybody deserves a second, third, fourth, … chance, don’t they?
From the very first page, I was captivated. I loved the way the author has the ability to make me feel the emotions she put down on paper. I was as angry, frustrated, happy, sad and afraid as Anna, but I also wanted to shake her and make her see sense.
On the other hand, I understand her behaviour as well. She wanted to help and see the good, even in the worst situations, and forgot about putting herself first when the going gets too though.
And then there is that twist that takes the story to an even higher level.
The book is very fluently written and totally enthralling. It won’t surprise you that I gave it the full 5 stars.
Thank you, Sadie Mitchell and RachelsRandomResources.
