I immediately fell in love with this book. I go into books not having a clue what they are about. Most come from recommendations from other authors, PR companies, or book sellers. I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of Finding Forever. This book hooked me in from the turmoil Ashlin was feeling on the very first page until the heartbreakingly wonderful ending. Finding Forever was so much more than a romance. It’s a book of healing, perseverance, and family.
I loved the intertwined stories of Gael and Ashlin along with their ancestors, Sophia, Daniel, Devlin, and Colette. Through journal entries, we have the privilege of seeing into the past and experiencing all of the passion, love, heartache, and healing of Gael’s and Ashlin’s great-great-great grandparents. I loved how the authors incorporated these stories throughout the book and how their ancestors played a role in shaping Ashlin’s thoughts about love and family. She struggled so much during her life to trust and accept love from others without fear; it was great seeing her finally opening up that part of her. My heart also soared and broke along with Sophia and Daniel. Their story was so beautiful and tragic. I longed for their love to withstand all that was thrown their way and died a little knowing that it in the end they would be apart. I needed to read more, as Ashlin had, to find out what happened to them. Weren’t they destined to be together?! In the end, I believe that Fate redeemed herself all these years later to bring Gael and Ashlin together. Or maybe she knew what she was doing all along.
