Blog Tour & Giveaway: Letters Home by Rebecca Brooke!

 
Publication date: 10th June 2014
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: Life is all about the jigsaw, right? Finding the different puzzle pieces to complete your very own picture. A career you love, a house to make a home, a lover to complete you, and keep you warm at night.

Danielle Renton has a life, and she loves it. A recent law school graduate, she’d been floored when her boyfriend, Nate Lewis, enlisted during their sophomore year of college. At the time, she’d been concerned with what that meant for them as a couple, but in the years that followed, they’d learned to adapt to the logistics of an army relationship.

But when life throws her a curve ball, how will she cope? Can she pick up the pieces and make her picture beautiful again? Or does she realize that, sometimes, the pieces can be too broken to fit back together…


I was really excited about this book when I first heard about it because I've read one of the books in this author's other series and loved it, so I was looking forward to reading more from her! This book was hauntingly beautiful! I knew it was going to be an absolute tear jerker before I even picked it up because the synopsis doesn't give too much away, but it gives you enough for you to possibly know what's going to happen in the plot! I have to say that I only glanced over the synopsis before I started reading, so I wasn't too sure what to expect when I started reading! What I got though was amazing and so emotional! The plot of this book was just so beautiful, but it went quite dark at points, and then it gradually started becoming beautiful again! I did expect there to be tears while I read this book, but I have to be honest and say that I was able to hold most of my tears in! I have no idea how I did it because there were some scenes that were so brutal and emotional! Those scenes completely made the plot though! The characters were amazing! Danielle was the main female character and my heart just completely broke for her! I watched her go through some of the most loving and most beautiful moments of her life, and then I watched it all be taken away with a click of my fingers! I then watched her struggle to come to terms with what she had been through and in time she then she gradually started to learn how to move on and cope with what she had been through with the help of someone she least expected! Danielle was such a brilliant character and I connected with her all the way through this book as well! She was so brave and I could completely understand why she reacted the way she did at times! Tanner was the main male character and he had such a soft, gentle approach to his relationship with Danielle! The relationship had to go like that though or else Danielle would cower and run because of how fragile she was! I just adored Tanner and seeing his relationship with Danielle grow was the sweetest thing! I could also see that he would do anything to cause Danielle as little pain as he could and that he had some deep feelings for her! I wasn't expecting this book to be written from both Danielle and Tanner's point of views, but I'm really happy it was! It definitely helped me connect more with both characters and I loved getting to see their feelings for each other grow through both of their eyes! I can completely understand why this book is a standalone! Everything was resolved and it had a good, solid ending! The cover for this book is absolutely stunning! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and I think it represents the book beautifully! Big thank you to Rebecca for a copy of Letters Home and to Enticing Journey Book Promotions for having me on the Blog Tour!
