Loving Mr. Daniels
To Whom it May Concern,
It was easy to call us forbidden and harder to call us soulmates. Yet I believed we were both. Forbidden soulmates.
When I arrived to Edgewood, Wisconsin I didn’t plan to find him. I didn’t plan to stumble into Joe’s bar and have Daniel’s music stir up my emotions. I had no clue that his voice would make my hurts forget their own sorrow. I had no idea that my happiness would remember its own bliss.
When I started senior year at my new school, I wasn’t prepared to call him Mr. Daniels, but sometimes life happens at the wrong time for all the right reasons.
Our love story wasn’t only about the physical connection.
It was about family. It was about loss. It was about being alive. It was silly. It was painful. It was mourning. It was laughter.
It was ours.
And for those reasons alone, I would never apologize for loving Mr. Daniels.
“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.”
5 This Book Is My Golden Stars
This book feels familiar yet foreign, the premise is done before but the author took it and delivered a book that felt fresh and new. It’s a novel about people, their loss, denial, grief, anger, love and forgiveness- It was much more than a romance, to me it was about FAMILY and friendships. So much going on yet never felt once that it took away from the beauty and perfection that is this book.
“Everyone has a golden. It could be anything-a song, a book, a pet, a person. Anything that makes you so happy your insides cry of pure joy. It feels like you’re on drugs but better because it’s a natural high.”
I felt the connection between Daniel and Ashlyn from the moment they met, they had such a powerful chemistry and it never felt forced to me. It was such an easy companionship between the two.
The Supporting characters were amazing in their own way, to use an expression that has been used a lot lately but is just the right one to describe the minor characters, Perfect Imperfections , all had their own demons to overcome- Some drove me to scream and yet loved every single one of them.
I highly recommend this book! It tore my heart out yet I was feeling happy that I took a chance on it, for me it absolutely fulfilled many elements that make an amazing book.
