A few month's back, I was honored by winning this ebook during a giveaway (and to be honest, I can't remember who hosted the giveaway - holler if you're reading this). Truth is, this isn't my type of book. It's not the genre I write or the market. The cover caught my eye, though. I'm a sucker for red skies and desert landscapes. That woman watching the helicopter fly away, with "Come Back To Me" between them, told me something would keep these happy love birds apart.
Interest piqued + A free book = I read it.
And I'm glad I did! There are few stories out there that shows the power of genuine love over great distances and loss, and this novel nailed it. With the background of a troubled Iraq, considering the troubles happening in that part of the world right now, it brought its realism even closer to home. Some have claimed this to be as comparable to a Nicholas Sparks novel - to which I agree. If you're interested, go snag a copy here.
And here's the trailer. Doesn't this just choke you up?
For my next trick, err, book, I'm reading a novel that was given to me from another giveaway, hosted by none other than the amazing Elana Johnson. Read on!
I'm David, and have a happy Leap Day, everyone!
Make today a "Quantum" one!
