Welcome to Sunday loves! You know what that means, it's book of the week time!!! This past week has been rough for me. Especially due to the shooting that happened in Orlando a week ago today. I will forever be haunted by the loss of friends and members of the LGBTQ+ community. I weighed my options when choosing a book for this week, because there are so very many that I can feature - some that I've read, some that I've not.
However, my decision comes with the knowledge that this woman is a fantastic writer and someone I have greatly enjoyed getting to know through a group on Facebook. I won a copy of this book in a give away last Christmas, and only recently (in the last few months) got around to reading it and I was not disappointed. It was also one of the first pieces of lesbian fiction I'd read, period. I highly encourage you to track down this book and other works by this author, you won't be disappointed. I'm also including a link to my review of this book, check it out.
If you've read The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, are a psychology or medical student you are somewhat familiar with locked-in syndrome. I'd been familiar with it in vague terms from watching shows on television (as I'm a fan of Grey's Anatomy and House), so I wasn't completely unfamiliar with what Belinda was experiencing at this particular moment in her life.
I like the characters in this book, their struggles are unique to them and yet bring them together to hopefully give them each that glimmer of hope that love might actually be a possibility between the two women despite various obstacles and fears.
