Through Infinity by Libby Austin is a book that will melt your heart. This was a story about unconditional love and learning to love again. All of this exquisitely told through dual points of view, and with heart felt emotions.
Austin put me right in Candice's head, all through this book, I keep saying - what would I do if this happen to me? Candice wakes up to beeping in the hospital, and a massive headache. A man walks by and does a double take and says "oh your awake." She doesn't recognize him, he is a complete stranger to her. This is where I started asking myself, if I woke up not knowing my husband or kids, what would I do. I think that was what made this book a little heartbreaking for me.
Jason, Candy's husband along with their family helps her put her life back together one piece at a time. That's great, but she is no longer the woman she used to be. Jason does so many sweet things in this book, he is such a devoted husband and father to their four children. Where are these men in real life? I probably highlighted 1/2 of this book, some of the things he would say to her were so loving and understanding. Yes, big man crush on him right now.
This book appeared to either be very well researched or first hand knowledge of some of the other situations that are in play. I loved how each child was well developed with all their characteristics fully described. The star of the book of course was little man! Dawson is their youngest child and I promise I would pluck him from the pages and keep him as my own.
I love the dialect in this book. The setting is in Alabama, most books and movies go to the extreme when trying to replicate the southern drawl. Austin was spot on! Being from Alabama myself, I hate it when we are made to look like lower class people without educations just because of where we are from and how we pronounce our words. I was curious where Austin was from because it really sounded like me talking in this book. I author stalk all the time, so I look her up and chat with her through facebook messaging. She is indeed from Alabama, so no wonder she got it right- She is my people! I'm from North AL and she is from South AL but it's all the same!
Pick this book up, I highly recommend it, I even told my mom to read it!
