The story immediately grabs your attention for a ride into a heart range of emotions: joy, frustration, regrets, second guessing, patience and more. Jane’s life is a compelling read because of the way she deals with her fiancé’s [Seth] paralysis after military duty in Iraq and the people she meets that summer in Ashville. It is reads like an inspirational novel, one where you get in touch with so many feelings that makes you think about the novelty and duality of life.
The novel has that personal effect where you get so absorb in the story, although you guess what may happen in the end, it does not subtract your want to smile, feel horrible and angry when Jane, Seth, Truman and Jon Paul goes through their particular experiences. It is a novel that appeals to feelings and emotions, that after you are finish, you wonder about all the ways your vision may have cloud by the desire of selfishness or selflessness. It is that and something more that I am trying to put my fingers on, hmmm.
