These were the average days in the life of Lennox. An unhealthy and unstable mind is further challenged when fate intervenes. One tragic moment will test her wavering strength and leave a permanent scar on her conscience. Follow her journey of rediscovery, falling in love, and searching for her own fairy-tale ending.



~MY REVIEW~


This book took me on quite an emotional roller coaster. The main character, Lennox, is a mother of 2 young children and is married to a firefighter, Dean, who spends most of his week at the fire station. In essence, she's a single mom with a part time partner.

Lennox suffers from depression and bipolar disorder. Throughout the entire book, I felt like I was right there with her, during her highs and during her lows. The story jumps around various times in Lennox's life a lot. From high school, when she was first together with Dean to current when she is struggling with her marriage, and even to the future when she is... (Oop's can't tell you, spoiler) She struggles with daily life and relationships. Her and Dean's relationship has many rocky times, but they overcome them and grow together. 

This is an emotionally raw story that brought me to tears more than once. Overall, it was a good read, that made me sympathize more for those that suffer from similar disorders.


 

Prologue


There was a time in my life when the light within me shined so brightly. At some point I lost it. I lost me. Life used to course through my veins like an out of control wildfire, unstoppable and infectious. Time was supposed to heal, but all it did was slowly strip me down to an empty vessel void of passion, desire, and drive. I wanted to scream, “Be the one to save me,” but my soul was drained, my heart was shattered, and time had siphoned the life out of me.
