Aimee’s wedding is supposed to turn out perfect. Her dress, her fiancé and the location—the idyllic holiday ranch in Brazil—are perfect.
But all Aimee’s plans come crashing down when the private jet that’s taking her from the U.S. to the ranch—where her fiancé awaits her—defects mid-flight and the pilot is forced to perform an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.
With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is Aimee and Tristan’s—the pilot—only hope. A slim one that slowly withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, diseases. Beasts.
As Aimee and Tristan fight to find ways to survive, they grow closer. Together they discover that facing old, inner agonies carved by painful pasts takes just as much courage, if not even more, than facing the rainforest.
Despite her devotion to her fiancé, Aimee can’t hide her feelings for Tristan—the man for whom she’s slowly becoming everything. You can hide many things in the rainforest. But not lies. Or love.
Withering Hope is the story of a man who desperately needs forgiveness and the woman who brings him hope. It is a story in which hope births wings and blooms into a love that is as beautiful and intense as it is forbidden.
I did find this story inspiring in a way, I mean your in a jungle and you fight every element to just stay alive. Every story that has ever been wrote about a survival situation has all been the same. So this book wasn't anything different. It was sweet, yes but will I remember it next month- no. To me that is the mark of a good book. I will be able to read the synopsis and say yeah the one about the plane crash, but that will probably be all I can recall. I still enjoyed the read, I still thought it had sweet tender moments. It was just okay for me. Nothing I found wrong with it, it was wrote okay, the characters were developed okay.
The blog that I follow and receive the emails from rated this a 4 star but it is on a list of best of 2015 for the year. They have other 5 start reviews, but aren't on the list???? I'm not understanding their way of thinking. Thanks okay, I still have gotten many wonderful books to read off of that blog and I have read, reviewd and done my own blog post about them.
I give this book 3 stars
