You really have to stretch your imagination to believe the end of this love story of Hannah's, but what the heck. A woman is in a plane crash and journeys to a fishing lodge where she meets a little boy and his dad who win her heart......or is it all in her head? She meets a cast of characters that resourface when she "comes to" from her coma. I know, it's confusing. But somehow, it makes sense in the end. This is far from predictable....kinda hokey, but that's love!
I liked Comfort and Joy but not near as much as the other books by Kristin Hannah I've read. I read my first book written by her over a year ago & loved it; made me want to read more. I would have to say that if this would have been the first book I read by this author, I don't know that I would have read any others.
Joy has had a rough year, her husband and her hit a rough patch and he has ventured into the arms of another woman. She isn't feeling satisfaction on the job and overall life isn't going well for her. So she ends up on a crazy adventure that from the beginning is more than doomed. And then the book takes an unexpected turn and of course I can't share or it would ruin the whole deal!
This one was a little too lifetime movie for me. I was hoping for a sweet holiday book and from the beginning this one took the dramatics and amplified them. Family drama, a plane crash and beyond, this book packed the punch from the beginning. It had a little bit of the holiday cheer, but just not enough for me.
This was a great short read! I couldn't wait to see what happened next. I found myself laughing and crying with the story and it was so easy to imagine it all. This is the first Kristin Hannah book I have read and I will be looking for more.
This book was really very enjoyable and different from your everyday romance. There was quite a twist in it and a very surprising ending, which totally took me by surprise and caught me off guard. I had to go back and reread parts - it was fun and easy to read and I thouroughly enjoyed this book, would definitely recommend it to anyone! loved it.
Good story for getting you in the right kind of holiday spirit. I was clueless the whole first half of the book, had no idea what was going on with the character until the last half put everything together for me. I never would have imagined her condition (won't give it away). I'm glad everything turned out the way it did. Gives you hope and restores your faith in love and faith itself. Recommend it for the Christmas holiday.
