There are books that entertain me and there are books that inform me and there are books that inspire me. Because of You by Jessica Scott http://www.jessicascott.net/Welcome.html did all three. I LOVED this book. It was extremely well written and well edited and told me a story so tender and full that the characters feel like friends of mine.
At its core, Because of You is a story about finding new purpose after trauma reshapes bodies and minds. It’s a story about hurt, hope, friendship, and love, and it doesn’t shy away from going to that dark place of despondency one might enter after unspeakable tragedy.Because of You tells a real, gritty, messy story where the hero and heroine mess up in painfully believable ways and still manage to salvave the remaining pieces of themselves.
