Moments.

Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday's hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow's promises.

I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him.

I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.

This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.

Of moments.

Book Review: 4 stars

four-stars

Everyone who has already read one or multiple of Brittainy C. Cherry’s books knows that she is an author who can draw emotions like a pro. Her books aren’t always easy to read and even though they evoke a lot of emotions in me, I don’t always count that as a good thing. Yes, I read this genre to feel and to get my heart broken and to get it put together again. But her stories seem to be so much worse in heartbreak than most in the romance-genre. When you are too sad and too overtaken by emotions, your self-protection tries to take control and steer you into saver ground in making you getting a bit detached from the overwhelming emotions, at least it’s that case with me. So when one blow comes after the other without there seemingly being any good thing in the mix, I start to get detached to protect myself and that has the same effect as when I don’t feel with the book at all. Long speech short – this happened to me with “The silent Waters”, too. The beginning was extraordinary, simply epic. The beginning of the story and how her amazing writing sucked me into the story as if I was right there with the characters. But then drama happened. And more drama. On top of even more drama. Sigh. I really hoped, that the story stayed just as good as the beginning but to no avail. It was too much and I started to shut down emotionally. That didn’t help with a book that is based solely on emotions and the actions thereof.

The writing was really as amazing as ever, the characters were adorable and the plot was slightly predictable but really great none the less. But even despite my adoration of the characters, I have to mention another issue here – I didn’t understand a lot of the characters actions. Yes, this is fiction and the story had to be steered in a certain way, but when things go plainly against all and every logical thought I possess, it’s not something I can ignore.

All in all, I rate “The silent Waters” with 4 stars and can definitely recommend it to all fans of Brittainy C. Cherry books and/or romance novels with a lot of emotional impact. I guess my issues are very personal after all.
