Awards and Honors Winner! Well written and more than just a light beach read, this story will keep the reader wanting more. Abby is an Occupational Therapist but she has her own pain to cope with. The author does a great job crafting this tale. Rather than discount the importance of the process of healing Luke has to go through to focus on the love story, Ms. Cornelison make it a total process without the magic wand many wave to let the love story take precedence over reality.
Dynamics in any family are complicated. This tale helps to express that. The love story is great but made even better because it could be a slice of real life with real people. Cornelison excels again with this book. Did Bart really think some cute little chick was the trick to interesting him in rehab? If so, Bart was wrong. Now, as she crossed the room toward the sofa where he sat, he studied the strange collection of items she carried: pencils, a small ball, a rock, a seashell, scraps of cloth, and a stuffed animal.
When she sat down next to him, he eyed her with suspicion. I called your occupational therapist a little while ago, and she filled me in on the exercises she showed you the last time you went-- what, three weeks ago? Why not give it a try? Harris suggested. Give me your right hand. The idea that his abilities were now limited yanked a knot of frustration and grief in his chest. He watched a large pelican swoop down to perch on a post along the pier.
Never in his life had he felt so alone against such imposing odds. He wanted to get out of this rut, but the hurdles seemed insurmountable. Especially with so many unknowns… Abby still sat beside him on the sofa, and he sensed her gaze on him.
Damn, she was stubborn! Harris wants me to assess your range of motion, your sensory discrimination, that sort of thing. What kind of psychobabble shit is that? Her unwavering composure, when his snapped so easily these days, irritated him all the more. She shook her head, giving him a withering look. In return, he regarded her with cool detachment and took a magazine from the coffee table. Abby sighed and propped a hand on her hip.
Or would you rather struggle and be miserable for the rest of your life? Her muffled moan had made him hard. The shadows of a memory, long ago pushed to the recesses of his mind, taunted him, stirring a hollow ache.
Another rejection, many years old. Unable to meet her sympathetic gaze any longer, he stood up and stormed toward the kitchen. She pursued him. Was I lucky when that engine blew up? Was I lucky to lose an eye and all practical use of one hand? Was I lucky when you and my family ganged up on me and lied to me? Am I lucky, Abby? With a slow deep breath, she kept a maddeningly patient gaze on him.
You have a father who would do anything for you. You have a brother who loves you so much that your pain is tearing him up inside. You have a heart that is still beating, two legs that work, a successful family business, a beautiful home, and… me. The gesture stunned him, silenced him. The cool gentleness of her fingers sent a sharp stab of longing and loneliness to his heart. He pulled away from her touch, glowering at her. You have to want it. But, ultimately, you have to make a choice.
You can remain bitter, or you can get better.
