4 unexpected stars
I hadn't had a chance to read a novel written by Elaine May, Jacob being my first introduction to not only her works, but her series (if I'm not mistaken, this is the fifth in the series). What I loved was how easy it was to get right into the story ~ I had no troubles following the events that were going on and even more so to place the various players that are all inter connected in the story, and trust me, there are quite a few that does bear to be remembered for a variety of reasons (which I don't want to spoil the reason on why). When Isabelle sneaks out of the dingy 'home' (that would be a stretch of the word) with her daughter in her arms, she hurriedly makes it to the hospital since Katie (Isabelle's daughter) has been sick for too long without any improvement. On the run with no money, no home and no one to turn to, Jacob, the attending paediatrics physician, becomes her knight in shining armour when she least expects it. But will their newfound attraction manage to survive their secrets?
4 breath taking dreams
It was a heart wrenching story ~ no human being, whether they're children, adults, women, men or in between, should ever be made to feel as though they are worth nothing, and that's exactly how Isabelle has felt her entire life thanks to her mother and step father. It wasn't until Jacob's love set her free and made her want more than she's ever been given before and yet she can't but feel as though her fantasy will come crashing down on her once the truth comes out. And how did those secrets make everyone question everything ~ my curiosity to find out if we, the readers, will know the truth as well was way high and I couldn't wait to know more bout the Bryant family that seems to have such an intricate history with that of Isabelle, Katie and Jacob's life. Now I have to wait until Holly's story to find out what's to happen to them men I started to hate
