Book Review: The Edge of Always

Title The Edge of Always

Series The Edge of Never, book 2

Author J.A. Redmerski

Release Date November 5, 2013

Camryn Bennett has never been happier. Five months after meeting on a Greyhound bus, she and her soul mate Andrew Parrish are engaged—and a wedding isn’t the only special event in their future. Nervous but excited, Camryn can’t wait to begin the rest of her life with Andrew – a man she knows in her heart will love her always. They have so much to look forward to—until tragedy blindsides them.

Andrew doesn’t understand how this could happen to them. He’s trying to move on, and thought Camryn was doing the same. But when Andrew discovers Camryn is secretly harboring a mountain of pain and attempting to numb it in damaging ways, there is nothing he won’t do to bring her back to life. Determined to prove that their love can survive anything, Andrew decides to take Camryn on a new journey filled with hope and passion. If only he can convince her to come along for the ride…

I'm sure I could have sat down and read this book in one sitting. Trust me, I wanted to. I'm pretty sure my husband wouldn't have been too happy about me staying up all night to finish a book, though. I did the responsible thing, of course, and finished it in two days instead. Anyway, the book is one of those that you just don't want to put down. You just want to keep reading and devour the lovely story.

Overall, I loved continuing on Camryn and Andrew's journey with them. It was beautiful. It was heartbreaking. It was a wonderfully told story. I admit that there are a few times where "many months later" was used in which I wish it wasn't. Gah, I really wanted more of *that* particular part of the story. Maybe not the entire "many months" but some of it would have satisfied me. Oh well. In general, I can't complain. I enjoyed the story. I loved the overall message that, no matter what happens, you should always stay true to yourself and what you want out of life.

Included at the end of the book was an excerpt of a spin-off book, Song of the Fireflies. Of course as soon as I read the excerpt I per-ordered the book. I can't wait for it!


4 out of 5 stars
