Ok, so I had to go ahead and read the next book in the Edge of Never books. And I am super happy that I did. Not too many times have I been happier that I listened to a friend about a book to read, so once again THANK YOU YARELI!! But anyways The Edge of Always was a wonderful book. Here's the synopsis and then the rest of my review:
When everything falls apart, love remains . . .
THE EDGE OF ALWAYS
Camryn Bennett has never been happier. Five months after meeting on a Greyhound bus, she and her soul mate Andrew Parrish are engaged-and a wedding isn't the only special event in their future. Nervous but excited, Camryn can't wait to begin the rest of her life with Andrew, a man she knows in her heart will love her always. They have so much to look forward to-until tragedy blindsides them.
Andrew doesn't understand how this could happen to them. He's trying to move on, and thought Camryn was doing the same. But when Andrew discovers Camryn is secretly harboring a mountain of pain and attempting to numb it in damaging ways, there is nothing he won't do to bring her back to life. Determined to prove that their love can survive anything, Andrew decides to take Camryn on a new journey filled with hope and passion. If only he can convince her to come along for the ride...
This book starts off a couple of months from where The Edge of Never ended. Camryn and Andrew are together and happy for what life has in store for them. They are still singing in bars and talking about their plans to travel the world and continuing their adventures. Life is really good until they go back to visit Camryn's mom. Then tragedy strikes and Camryn ends up back like she was when Andrew met her on the Greyhound. Andrew knows that Camryn is hurting but she won't talk about what happened. She is insistent on forgetting it ever happened. But that all changes when he finds out that she started taking pain pills. Once he confronts her about the pills, he decides that what she really needs to help heal is to face her past and get back on the road.
Once Andrew is able to get Camryn to break through her walls that she has around her past, she is able to confront all the painful stuff that she has had happen to her over the last few years. Once she was able to do that her healing process can begin. And in order to help her, Andrew decides that they are going to stay on the road until she feels like she is ready to settle down. They take up odd jobs here and there, sing in bars every now and then, and face some unexpected troubles with tow trucks and friendly strangers. But everything they face, they do so with each other and they come out stronger than ever.
I really loved this book. I actually had to read through it twice in order to feel that I got everything I could out of it. I loved the way that Andrew supported Camryn through everything and knew just what to do to help her to heal. Unconditional love is something I love to read about and you can just feel it by the words that authors use. Mrs. Redmerski did a wonderful job with these two books. I really hope that she decides to write a book for Lily, but I know that I will be looking for more of her books in the future no matter what!
