Set amid the splendor of Washington State's North Cascade mountain range, Hannah's latest (after On Mystic Lake) borrows elements from soap opera, the silver screen and fairy tales to make a simple statement about the complications of love. Dr. Liam Campbell is devastated when his beloved wife, Mikaela, mother of two, suffers a horse-jumping injury that leaves her in a coma. His confusion escalates when he learns the identity of Mikaela's first husband: world-famous movie star Julian True. The biggest shock: True's is the only name she responds to. Liam senses that his Sleeping Beauty needs love to wake her up, but whose? Given the depth of his feelings for her, will he be brave enough to summon True for help, and so risk losing Mikaela forever in order to save her life? Scenes reminiscent of Kramer vs. Kramer occur where Liam tries to be mom to their nine-year-old son; the suds world takes over when Mikaela finally wakes, but with retrograde amnesia, thinking she's still married to True and with no memory of Liam; and It's a Wonderful Life brings the curtain down. In keeping with the popular convention of giving voice to spirituality, the novel employs religious overtones, which will please some readers while leaving others feeling molested by an angel.

When a young woman is injured in a riding accident, her husband turns to the first man she loved to bring her out of her coma, even if it means losing her forever. Good book - the author handles a theme that could have become a six-hanky Hallmark commercial and manages to make a compelling story out of it.

Very emotional...As always, Kristin Hannah writes about real characters and circumstances...She always makes you feel as if you are "living" the story yourself

This book, like the other Kristin Hannah books that I've read so far, was a really nice read. The characters were well developed and without being overly preachy or moralistic, Hannah allows the reader, along with the characters, to explore the various types of love. There is fierce parental protective love, the almost second-nature love of the married couple, and of course the violent, all-consuming first love. Hannah's writing is easy and relaxing to read, the emotional moments of the plot are not overly heavy-handed and the book overall was enjoyable to read. I would (and did!) recommend this to a friend.
