The book was emotional, spiritual and insightful with Sci-fi elements to it. What was surprising to me is how much it made me care for the characters, care for them to get together and live happily ever after, how much ever impossible that seemed. The characters are well-written, empathy-inducing and engaging. It was a great read for me and the end packed a powerful punch.
The romance of the main characters, Emma and Ryan was believable to say the least. Their meeting, the way they fall in love and their emotional goodbye as he left for Mars was so real, it was easy to forget that it was a work of fiction. The description of the emotional moments was on point and the spiritual ones were all there for the right reasons and depicts that love transcends mere physical presence. It is a powerful message for the readers.
The only issue I had was with inclusion of her father’s story-line, I understood that it was important for her story arc but it did not feel important and did not resonate with me.
Overall, this book was a great read, with great characters, powerful romance and a valid ending. I give it 4/5 stars.
