Craving ResurrectionSYNOPSIS

Poet and Amy’s story…

Patrick Gallagher’s future was mapped out—and it didn’t include Amy Henderson or the IRA.

She was everything he’d never wanted. Too young. Too naïve.

Unfortunately, he couldn’t help but be fascinated by the girl who took refuge in his old bedroom, staying with his mum more often than not.

She looked like a Renaissance painting and argued like a solicitor. He couldn’t resist her, and before long, he didn’t even want to.

Instead, he loved her unreservedly… then he married her.

But he couldn’t have prepared for what happened after.

Actions, no matter how large or how small, have consequences—and when the IRA comes knocking, he’s sucked into a life that he’d never anticipated.

Choices were made.

Hearts were broken.

Trust was shattered.

Lives were lost.

Through it all, he loved her.

It was a love that spanned decades.
Epic.
Intense.
Unquestionable.
Unbreakable.

✯✯✯✯✯ highly emotional stars. 

‘Poets wrote sonnets about her type of beauty.’

What can we say about Craving Resurrection; honestly we’re quite lost for words and if you read our reviews regularly you‘ll know that this doesn’t happen often. We do tend to go on a bit. We just weren’t prepared for everything that was Craving Resurrection.

“Sometimes, the things we need don’t make sense to anyone else. That doesn’t mean you’re wrong to need them.”

What we do have to say, of which we are sure, is expect the unexpected. This instalment is unlike any of its predecessors insofar as themes, storyline and main characters are concerned. It’s incredibly unique, diverse, highly emotional and incredibly bloody sad. We agonised, cried and our hearts swelled with love and if nothing else we wholeheartedly applaud Nicole Jacquelyn as we think this story took guts and tears to write. We can imagine her sitting at her desk drawing deep from within herself crying tears as she wrote. Yes, that is how much sadness we truly felt over this story. Poet and Amy’s story will pull at your heartstrings; it will make you angry, frustrated, and heartbroken and it will make you believe in soul mates and true love despite everything working against that very fact.

‘I instinctively knew that nothing could hurt me when Patrick was there. It was when he left that bad things happened.’

We go back to the beginnings of Patrick and Amy in rural Ireland. Two youngsters brought together by a caring neighbour and Mum. Amy; according to Patrick:

‘She was everything – messy and emotional and pragmatic and snarky and possessive and beautiful – and I couldn’t go another day without making her mine.’

Amy to us was strength. She was fierce and fought tooth and nail in cruel and violent adversity. Amy was a survivor. She was passionate and loving, pure goodness. She was a woman who loved and lost with forgiveness.

‘Christ, hadn’t she figured it out yet? I’d continue to hold her as long as she’d allow it.’

Patrick was a man misunderstood. A man who made mistakes. A man who’s skills and knowledge was quashed by outside forces placing him in situations beyond his control and comprehension. Patrick loved with all his heart but was ultimately a man of honour and responsibility no matter how misguided. Patrick ultimately had a good heart.

‘I loved him, I didn’t think that would ever change, but I couldn’t get past the fact that he’d ruined my life.’

The journey is harrowing and albeit it a hard read at times due to overuse of Irish vernacular it was nevertheless spell-binding and compelling reading.

‘I understood that everyone made choices that they later regretted, some large and some small. It was human to get it wrong, to not see the larger picture until it was too late. But I didn’t know how to reconcile that with the decisions I’d made.’

A story of love, loss, guilt and missed opportunities that absolutely pulled at our heartstrings. Craving Resurrection can be read as a standalone. Nicole Jacquelyn has become a 1Click author for us and this book only cemented our opinion of her talent. It’s certainly one we’ll be talking about for quite a while. A definite recommend from us both.
