Raw, gut-wrenching, hopeful, captivating, beautiful. Quinn and Graham drew me into their journey. From the incredibly awkward way they initially meet, they find a way to handle one of the most horrible days of both of their lives with dignity and pride. To their actual first date where I felt like these two people were supposed to meet. They have a natural connection that allows them to be themselves and it seemed like this was the first time that either of them had found that in a relationship. The joy they find together leads to a beautiful marriage which becomes a journey of true love that must weather the storms to see how firm a foundation their marriage truly has. I am in awe of Quinn as she faces one of the toughest issues for a woman, the inability to get pregnant. Of course, over time this causes a strain on their marriage even as their love for each other doesn’t waver. But is love enough? There is an honesty to this journey that kept me enthralled and hoping that love will win in the end.

4 stars — This was a rollercoaster ride of a book, mostly with my emotions. There were parts that I absolutely ADORED beyond measure. And there were parts that strained my sense of empathy. I was happy in the end, but definitely emotionally exhausted. Quinn and Graham were an exercise in patience in the Now chapters. While I’m not the best communicator in the world, my god! They were AWFUL at it! We mostly saw Quinn’s side because we’re in her POV, but Graham was pretty awful at communication too. I’m surprised they lasted 7 years. And therapy is boring? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I shy away from therapy too. But I don’t think I’ve ever read 2 people who needed counselling more. The Then chapters were an absolute delight. I was drawn in from the very first chapter. What a strange way to meet, a strange way to open a story. But you could already feel their connection. I kind of loved how the story was balanced between the Then and Now chapters. We got to watch them fall in love while simultaneously falling apart. I think it made it that much more heartbreaking, because you were seeing how solid they were initially, and how great a toll infertility was playing in their marriage. I will admit that I don’t want children…and never have. I was actually initially really offended with Quinn’s thought processes of how we’re only here for reproduction, so if she can’t do that she’s no use in the world. But I had to remind myself that she was only focusing on herself, and not necessarily on others (especially given her sister). So I definitely had a hard time connecting with Quinn’s all encompassing need to have children, and how it took over her life. I felt bits of it, just through Ms. Hoover’s brilliant writing, but I still couldn’t completely understand it. But I did get the resulting depression. I think that made it harder for me to *get* the degree of the struggles this couple was going through. Quinn strained my ability to empathize on so many levels. Maybe, it’s because I recognize glimmers of what she’s going through from a depression perspective, and some of her thoughts and feelings remind me of my own thoughts and feelings, and I HATE those parts of myself, so it was hard to not transfer that on to her. But Quinn took it to a whole new level, and I just had a really hard time with how things played out on her side of the marriage. I actually *felt* for Graham. It doesn’t excuse what he did by any means, but even *he* didn’t excuse what he did. He tried to explain, but not excuse. The Then chapters were honestly 5+ stars. I absolutely loved them as a couple, even if they were a bit over the top perfect in some ways. They made me laugh and grin. The Now chapters were more 3.5 stars. I appreciated the rollercoaster journey, but I’m kind of exhausted now. I wanted a bit more from Quinn at the end, but c’est la vie. I will also say that I LOVED the ending. In so many other stories it would have ended one way, and I would have been disappointed. But Ms. Hoover took the road less travelled, and I *really* appreciated that. The writing was lovely. I highlighted so many bits. The story may have been tough to digest, but the writing was beautiful. And it flowed so smoothly, the story was easy to devour (by my brain, if not my heart).

This is by far the best book I've read from Colleen, it taught me so much about so many things that I didn't even know I was interested in. It got me to really experience everything happening; the way she writes about infertility is so natural, almost as if she knew the feeling. It made me grow as a person and realize that bad things happen to good people and sometimes God's plan is better than mine or yours. I can't wait for the next
