They say there are five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
Not everyone will grieve in this order, nor will everyone go through every stage. It’s during the stage of denial when Alex Hart meets Andrew Foster. He takes her one-step closer to acceptance: the stage when new, meaningful relationships are formed. The stage when the realization occurs that this is now the new state of normal.
Just when Alex thinks she is on her way to healing, she enters the bargaining phase. That’s the phase where you wonder what you could have done differently. You wonder “what if?” Specifically, what if the ones you loved hadn’t left you?
Leaving…this is what makes heading off to war so difficult and frightening for Alex. She knows all too well what it’s like to be the one on the losing end of life, which is why she’s made it her personal mission in life to save as many lives as possible. The extreme high she gets from treating trauma victims turns into Alex’s own form of therapy, or so she thinks.
When faced with her world being turned upside down, Alex may just find that her true therapy is in the one who has always saved her.

i think it sad the author has to explain herself that way i mean as long as she specified this book was different she shouldn't be attacked because of that.ReplyDelete
i don't mind story with sweet romance and no sex those can held more meaning so on the perhaps list ( simply because of teh grief topic i'm perhaps not ready for)
I agree Miki. I dont think the author should have had to post that. Plenty of books are amazing without sex. That isnt all that there is to romance.ReplyDelete
why was she attacked? I dont understand why some people think romance books arent romance without steamy scenes. Ive read plenty with barely kissing and they were still awesome and sweet love storiesReplyDelete
Skipping Stones sounds like a wonderful book. Very emotional and sweet. All romance books don't need graphic sex.ReplyDelete
As long as a book is well written I cahoots understand why a writer would be attacked for going out of a normal style, isn't life always about growing and new experiencesReplyDelete
