Title: Edges of Gone
Author: Jessica Gouin
Release: April, 27th 2017
In good times, and in bad.
In sickness, and in health.
Until death do them part…
Owen and Sloane never foresaw their vows being put to the ultimate test mere hours after declaring those sacred words.
Their lives were shred to pieces on the night of their wedding and the aftermath that followed the tragedy set those pieces ablaze. Promises of better or worse began to blur as they attempted to return to daily routines.
With a burnt and bloodstained wedding dress hidden in the basement, will Sloane be strong enough to mend the broken pieces inside of her husband?
With guilt and despair pulling Owen further into the dark corners of his mind, will he battle his demons, or surrender to them?
Sometimes when love is pulled apart, it might not fit back together as easily as it once did. Every marriage takes faith and sacrifice, but how far will these two go to save what they once had?
It seems the further these newlyweds drift from one another the harder it becomes to focus on the happy life they once envisioned.
If you want a tearjerker. This is your book.
This book is wonderful, beautiful, and amazing.
Edges of Gone picks up where Six Years Gone left off (If you have not read Six Years Gone, you need to because it is wonderful and you will understand this book a lot more.) The beginning of this book does do a mini re-cap of Six Years Gone if you have not read it.
Owen and Sloane were supposed to be celebrating the best day of their lives, but it ended up being the worst day of their lives. After a terrible tragedy and horrible injuries, they now have to pick up the pieces and continue living.
Owen is trying to overcome injures he received on his wedding day. He is heartbroken, sad, pissed at the world, and doesn’t know how to move on with his life.
Sloane is trying to do all she can to help Owen with his struggles but he keeps pushing her away. When is enough, enough? When do you give up on trying to help the person you love?
First, let me just say Damn You Jessica. The number of tears I shed during this book was crazy. I will say that when you read this, you will probably be pissed at Owen for a good portion of the book, because I was. However, you have to remember he is grieving and in pain. There are other characters in the book, Imogen and Nash, who add their own stories into the plot. (I loved Imogen.)
There are flashbacks throughout the book that give you a good incite on why Owen is feeling the way he is and why he is going what he is doing.
I absolutely loved this story. It is a very emotional story. I cried sad tears and happy tears (my husband laughed at me because of it.) I think this book is beautifully written and tells a story of heartbreak and suffering but also tells a story about how you can overcome the worse times of your life.
“Thank you,” I whisper into her neck. “For what?” “For bringing me off the edge.”
Six Years Gone
I love books. I love reading books. I love writing books. I love talking books. Books.
Writing is something that I’ve always loved to do; a hobby.
Being a published and respected author is more than a dream or a goal.
Besides my family; it’s everything to me.
I take my writing career seriously and make decisions based on the long term.
What I want to achieve.
