"I love you, Stripes," he said, his hand resting on my hip. "Like, to pieces." - Ella Harper, Pieces of You
Lucy and Luke have been trying to have a baby. It's been eight years of miscarriages and heartache. Lucy is pregnant once again and on the night she miscarries her husband is in a horrific accident, leaving him in a coma.
Lucy and Luke's family sit at his bedside, hoping and waiting for, Luke to wakeup. Life continues around him and broken family bonds are built. Luke has been hiding a secret, a secret full of devastating news and hope.
Harper writes with compassion and her characters are true to life. She understands the struggles of infertility and the tole it takes on a woman's heart and soul. She captures the grief that comes with wanting something so dearly, you heart breaks. Harper knows the struggles a couple face together and individually. Harper knows. She knows what it's like to love someone who doesn't love you back. She is essentially every character she has created..... I think, Harper put pieces of herself in every character of this emotionally drawn novel.
