In a world where nightmares are real, this is the story of a soldier's heroism and a woman's devotion.

Ryan is lost in a coma, living his own nightmare of deployment, and trying to find his way home.

While desperately fighting his family to keep him on life-support, will his fiance be able to influence his dreams and guide him home before he becomes trapped in this war forever?

..............................................................................
   My thoughts:

This book follows the relationship of Ryan and Vela during a difficult time.  Ryan was deployed before and having difficulty getting through what happened over their and being able to move passed it.  Vela was being patient and listening when appropriate for Ryan.  At the beginning of the book we can tell that  Ryan and Vela have a very deep relationship.  The two get engaged right before Ryan goes back to be deployed again.  I love how the author gave us a small bit of their relationship before Ryan gets into an accident and falls into a coma. 

Things I loved in the book was how loyal Vela remained to Ryan after the accident.  We got more details into their relationship and also the relationship between Ryan and his mother.  Vela tried really had to stay level headed about the whole accident, but when she started to have realistic dreams of Ryan she became completely sleep deprived.   The dreams are one of my favorite parts in the book.  We get a real feel that Vela is being transported to Ryan's side, but only she is aware this is a dream.  Also, I felt like the author did a great job making it feel very realistic that Ryan and Vela where in Iraq.  The descriptions and hardships the characters faced made it feel very real.

I love that the author made a clear distinction between Ryan being in a coma versus being brain dead.  The author must have done a lot of research on what happens to coma patients prior to writing it all felt very real and made sense.  I also enjoyed reading about the struggles that Vela went through because she was only engaged to Ryan not his wife.  

I would suggest this as a weekend read or a read when you have plenty of time to digest the book.   Once I started reading the book I needed to know what was going to happen at the end.  I felt like the author did a great job with adding suspense when needed to keep the book moving along at a great pace.  The book was the perfect length in my mind.  

I was received this book from Claire St. Hilaire for the purpose of providing an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

To this day Claire is never found far from pen and paper – or a calculator.

Claire believes that to tell a story you must listen to one first. Her books and stories are fictional tales based on the emotions and experiences of individuals who have shared their own stories with her. She is passionate about giving a voice to those who are not heard by creating fictional events and then bringing them to life with true human experiences.

  2. Sounds like an emotional story and the author did a good job with it. I like that she makes the distinction between coma and brain dead, because I've seen some serious flubs in books on this.
