The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
Have you ever wondered how many people would still love you if you were no longer beautiful? Have you ever thought of people who wake up and can’t stand the idea of seeing their reflections? Have you ever considered that death may be easier than life?
I never did. Not once. Not until one moment, one mistake, changed my life forever.
I woke up to beeping machines, hovering faces, and pain like you wouldn’t believe. I’m not just talking about my burns either. I’m talking about my heart.
My name is Sarah Jordan and this is my story. I’m tired of pretending to be perfect. Of painting on a smile when I’m struggling. My story isn’t always pretty and easy to read, but it hasn’t been easy to live either. I’m opening up. Letting you in. So maybe, just maybe, together we can peel away the masks and find true beauty. True life. Underneath it all.
Welcome to my heart … bound within the pages of Bloom.
Book 5 in The Unspoken Series. This is a 10 book series, best when read in order.
A beautiful, successful, sweet personality with the world at her fingertips, Sarah Jordan falls in love with James, a charming man who adores her. But he comes with broken pieces and a daughter he adopted when his brother and sister-in-law died in an accident he feels he could’ve prevented. When she finally decides to say yes to his many proposals, they are both burned in a campfire accident. After a year of hospital beds and stark lights, Sarah is released to go home with everything but her former beauty. As she recovers, James struggles with regret and guilt as Sarah fights to overcome the depression that comes with a new life so different from the one she loved so much. Her joy and security are tested while budding relationships cleanse wounds they never knew they had.
Ope’s Opinion: This book has a heartbeat of it’s own. You could feel it as you read each page. It is a love story, but not in the traditional sense. It is about learning to know and love your true self.
Sarah’s heartbeat started out weak and irregular. As the story unfolds, it becomes stronger and more regular. You root for Sarah to heal ( on the inside ) from page one. You will feel Sarah’s pain, you will see her hurt, and you will laugh with her.
Marilyn Grey writes a book that will inspire you to be a more beautiful person from the inside out. She writes in such a way that helps you see the world from another perspective. I recommend this book. Bloom is a beautiful book!
