Come Back to Me by: Melissa Foster Review and Book Tour


Title: Come Back To Me
Author: Melissa Foster
Publisher: Greenforge Books
Pages: 307

Description:

Tess Johnson has it all: her handsome photographer husband Beau, a thriving business, and a newly discovered pregnancy. When Beau accepts an overseas photography assignment, Tess decides to wait to reveal her secret—only she’s never given the chance. Beau’s helicopter crashes in the desert.

Tess struggles with the news of Beau’s death and tries to put her life back together. Alone and dealing with a pregnancy that only reminds her of what she has lost, Tess is adrift in a world of failed plans and fallen expectations. When a new client appears offering more than just a new project, Tess must confront the circumstances of her life head on.

Meanwhile, two Iraqi women who are fleeing honor killings find Beau barely alive in the middle of the desert, his body ravaged by the crash. Suha, a doctor, and Samira, a widow and mother of three young children, nurse him back to health in a makeshift tent. Beau bonds with the women and children, and together, with the help of an underground organization, they continue their dangerous escape.

What happens next is a test of loyalties, strength, and love.

My Review:



I was given this book by Melissa for a blog tour.  What a great book, we meet Tess and Beau Johnson.  Beau is off to Iraq to take pictures when his plane is shot down, Tess learns of his "death" and for reasons to herself can't seem to accept that he's died.  Her friends and his family try to help her but find it hard when she is so adamant that he isn't dead.  Add to the equation that Tess is pregnant which messes up Beau's 5 year plan.


This book was so full of emotions anger, sadness, betrayal, confusion, I felt every emotion Melissa was trying to convey in it.  I also had an appreciation for residents of Iraq mothers trying to protect their children.  Was such a moving story, I was definitely surprised by it.  Melissa's writing does something not everyone can do it stirs emotions in you while you are reading it.  The sad parts are all the more sadder cause you feel them with her.


I can't wait to see what she writes next!
