✯✯✯✯ Emotional stars
If ever there was a story that split our book hearts in two then this is one of those. As we read the love story that was Sam and Jaxson we stumbled and dragged our feet through the first half, being told to feel – told to experience rather than actually being in the story ourselves.
‘It was mature. It was undying, and it was the kind of love that most people don’t ever even get to experience once in their life. How fortunate was I to have gotten to experience it twice.’
Then suddenly about 40% from the end it was as if the story truly awakened – it began to demand our attention, our emotion and our undeniable riveted attention. We felt, we experienced – we truly and finally became a part of Easy Silence and it hurt. It hurt so much just the way we love it to. The love, the beauty, the pain and the anguish. We felt it all. That is why this review is so incredibly hard to write as until we were two thirds through we struggled a bit with the story, the way it was told and the nature of the heroine. Being spectators that are just okay with what we are being shown to suddenly being invited to participate mind body and soul is two very different types of plays. We are the kind of readers that enjoy the second option and for that the last 40% shone like five brilliant stars as opposed to the blinking on and off three. Now, there is no doubt that Beth Rinyu is a fabulous author who truly writes with emotion; she proved that time and time again. We only wish that heart and beating pulse had been threaded through the entirety of the story so that ours would have beat in tandem in return.
“It just doesn’t seem real to me that someone like me could be lucky enough to have someone like you.”
We won’t go into the story; you’re definitely going to want to read this one for yourselves and if you find it to be a slow start like us all we can say is you do not want to put this story down as it’s like a slow fizzing firework waiting to make you awestruck with its display. What we loved is that this Author wrote the story as it played out for her; her warning of this kept us reading and we loved this very fact because it proved to be worth it in every way that counts.
‘Together we created an easy silence, a silence that most people would find awkwardly eerie, but for us, it was symbolic of our relationship.’
