Today was a very rainy day, and a day off from work, so I was so thrilled to spend the day to read this new book just published yesterday!
Margaret is afraid of planes; always has been. Her boyfriend knew this, but he’s about to get his pilot license and he wants to send her on an extravagant trip to propose to her. He finally convinces her, and up they go, ring in the cockpit, and her approval just moments away. She says yes, and as they head back to ground, they hit a storm and crash. Chip walks away with not barely a scratch, and Margaret is stuck in the hospital, unable to walk. Their relationship is tested, family relationships are tested, and Margaret is faced with choices to make if she wants to turn her situation around for the better.
This has been compared to Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, and I can totally see why. There are a ton of similarities, but this book is special on its own. I loved it! Yeah, it’s totally predictable, but Katherine is a WONDERFUL author and depicts her hospital stay so beautifully, right down to the hardcore relational moments that rock Maggie’s world to bits. I dare say, I didn’t expect the family drama with her fiancé drama, but it was quite welcomed. I would read this again and again. Simply beautiful.
