WOW! I finished this book on my kindle at lunch at my day job. What a great story by Nancee Cain.
Rating: * * * * *
Without ruining the plot, the story is about a rebellious (yet very lovable) angel (Remi) sent from heaven to save the soul of Evangeline (Evie). From the moment Remi is placed in the car by the bridge within moments of Evie’s choice, I didn’t want to stop reading. It is a story of courage, redemption, mental health, love and warm fuzzies and tears.
Nancee did an amazing job developing the two protagonists, Remi and Evangeline. I fell in love with Remi in the opening golf scene with God (read it and you’ll know.) Tongue in cheek, rebellious yet incredibly lovable, Remi’s pure heart shines through in this story. As frustrated as he gets, he wants the best for Evie. A true angel. Remi has officially made it to the Hall of Fame of characters.
Evie also is a fantastically written character. She is raw, yet sweet. There is romance and love in her soul, and you get to taste it with every interaction and thought process she possesses. Evie has made some bad decisions in her life, but she is not a bad person. Nancee does an eloquent job representing her in her story. She is vulnerable, raw and gritty and you want her to conquer her problems.
I cried, I laughed, I celebrated and I mourned all in the midst of this book. I was so moved how Nancee describes and grips the reader into the challenges of mental health, depression and suicide. I have serious kudos for Nancee taking on this challenge head on and doing it with such grace. You get a sixth star for this.
The story flows beautifully and you are quickly attached to the characters. I’m not one to spoil the ending for you, because you truly need to read this book. I look forward to reading more of Nancee Cain’s novels simply by her prose and story structure alone.
Remi is a winner. Truly. I ❤ Remi.
