Glen, Eve and her sister Eleanor went out for a bike ride one day and their lives changed forever. Their 3 lives are forever intertwined. Just when Eleanor realizes that she can move on and open her heart to another a new disaster weighs her heart down again. The love between sisters is evident as Eleanor tries her best to help Eve, even through so many obstacles. Who would have thought that a near death experience and an accident leaving someone paralyzed would forever shape these characters lives.
I really liked the ending, and it was sort of bittersweet for me. I am giving this book a 5/5.
I was given a copy to review from Night Owl Reviews, however all opinions are my own.
