When my husband Oliver died, my life ended. My purpose, my passion, my everything bled out with him on the side of the Pacific Coast Highway.
Ollie was an organ donor. His eyes, his brain, his lungs, his heart…parts of my Ollie went out and saved lives.
Then His heart, beating in another man’s chest, found its way back to me, and I found myself faced with an impossible choice: hold on to the pain and beauty of the past and the memory of the man I loved, or reach for a bold new
future, knowing each heartbeat will be a reminder of all I’ve lost.
I wasn’t supposed to live past thirty.
My grandfather died at forty-five. Heart failure.
My father died at thirty-five. Heart failure.
The doctors told me my whole life that I wouldn’t see my thirty-first birthday. My heart was going to give out. It was just a matter of time: a rare blood type and an unusually large heart meant essentially zero chance of a transplant.
I proved them all wrong…by dying on my thirty-first birthday.
And then I woke up, alive, with another man’s heart inside my chest, and his widow on my conscience.
I spent my whole life preparing for death, and now I have to learn how to live. Only, as I soon discovered, living is the easy part.
Loving, and allowing myself to be loved…well, that’s a whole lot harder.
From the very first chapter Jasinda Wilder’s words tugged tightly on every single one of my heartstrings which sure didn’t let up until the very end. “Yours” is a heartbreaking story about a woman who becomes a widow early on.
Niall is barely living after a fatal accident that claims her husband Ollie. She thought after losing him that there would never be anyone else in her life. But that all changes once she sees larger than life, playboy gazillionaire Lock Montgomery. Immediately after meeting, they find that they share this deep-seated connection.
What was intriguing about this situation was it was difficult to determine whether it was just a physical attraction, guilt perhaps, or maybe even an actual love that they were feeling. I loved how the Jasinda Wilder was able to factor in all of this in considering the circumstances.
What appreciated most about this couple was that even if it did start from something physical, they were able to take a step back and rebuilt a relationship starting from the basics. It took them months to get there which affected the pacing but for me, it was well worth the wait.
The bottom line is that “Yours” is a beautiful, well-written, emotional love story of acceptance, finding peace and an everlasting love. Definitely keep the tissues handy because this book will surely have your “eyes sweat”.
