My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5++++++ This is one of the most incredible books I have ever read. You MUST add The Unimaginable to your TBR!
I have been trying to write this review for sometime, unsure of how to express just how amazing this book truly is. So here goes.
I found The Unimaginable to be an incredible, emotional journey of a young woman setting out on her own for the first time in her life. This beautifully descriptive story had my full attention right away, making me want to know more about the lovely young woman I had just met, and where her story would take me.
The characters are beautifully written and well-developed and I felt an immediate connection to them all thanks to Ms. Silver’s brilliant writing. Particularly to one little boy, whose presence touched my heart deeply. There is also no denying the strength of the relationships between the characters in this story. Whether the relationship is one of friendship, love or fear, Ms. Silver was able to make me feel the connection. I dare you not to fall in love with Jessica, Quinn and Grant.
I’m not sure what I was expecting when I started reading The Unimaginable, but I definitely wasn’t prepared to be sitting up at three in the morning, heart in my throat and tears in my eyes. So many emotions in this fabulous book. I won’t lie, Dina Silver completely broke my heart and I’m not sure if I can forgive her…You’ll see 😉 The Unimaginable is like nothing I have read this year and for all my heart may have been broken, I found this to be a very uplifting story.
If you are looking for a beautiful adventure with the added touch of a tummy-fluttering romance. A journey that will your break your heart and mend it back together… Look no further, The Unimaginable is one of my favourite books of 2014 and I hope it will be one of yours.
