Fractured Hope by Kristy Love

     This book... Wow. I mean it gutted me from the start. It was tragically beautiful! The emotion behind the story and the emotion I felt as a reader was so intense; I can only imagine how Kristy Love felt writing this amazing story. It was ugly. It was sad. It was happy. And it was real. This book was such a real life thing. From the very beginning to the very end, it was nothing, but real. It didn't try to make life picture perfect or unbelievable. It showed something that people go through all the time. It showed how life can be. Most importantly, it showed us that beauty can always come after pain.

Emptiness was my constant companion.
Grief was all I knew. Loneliness was all I felt.
Life beat me down. The punches kept coming.
I existed. Didn’t really live.

Then he came into my life.
He was like a battering ram with a silver tongue.
But for the first time in so long, I felt something.
I felt everything.
Cared for.

But hope led only to disappointment.

* * *

Simple. Complicated. Life Altering.
I lived alone, consumed by everything I no longer possessed.
I had nothing to live for.

Mia woke something inside me I thought died long ago.
There was finally someone to share my life.
This was a dream I’d relinquished long ago.
She stirred emotion that I tried to fight,
But I wanted her.
Needed her.
I felt I had something to live for.

But hope was a liability I couldn’t afford.
