Love On A Limb is a fantastic holiday romance by Laurie L.C. Lewis. Ms. Lewis came to my attention when I read her book Sweet Water, followed by The Dragons of Alsace Farm. Those books were really wonderful, so when this one showed up in my feed I knew I had to read it. This story really does have quite a lot going on in it- there is romance, discovery, a struggle between life and death, coming to terms with one’s mortality, love and faith, emotions, humour, and is really a rewarding read. I laughed, but boy did I cry. This book should come with a box of tissues, because you are going to need them. This story really touched me, and etched its way deep into my heart! The subject matter is devastating- terminal illness isn’t a light and fluffy subject matter- but the author wrote with such emotion and in such a powerful way that the character and their stories mattered to me, I was by their side rooting for them the whole way- laughing with them, crying with them and most of all fighting alongside Matt in his battle with cancer. This story slayed me! I was so invested in it, I have a bit of a book hang-over now it’s finished, but I would turn around and do it all over again because this story is special and touches the reader in unexpected ways. I really recommend this story to anyone who loves a wonderful story that will stay with you long after you read the final words. This is a holiday romance that can be enjoyed at any time of the year!! I look forward to Ms. Lewis’ next book!
Amazing book. Laurie draws the reader in to identify from the heart with the characters of love, Matt and Mikaela, never giving up, never losing hope, fighting to have the time together, to keep loving each other. Tears flowed, tissues capturing the heartbreak the reader feels for this couple. Best book I have read in a long time, and will stay with me for a lifetime.
Love on a Limb A Love Story For All Seasons by Laurie L.C. Lewis is a beautiful heart wrenching, sob inducing wonderful romance story. I love reading Laurie’s work as she puts so many emotions into her writing that it makes you feel as though you are right there with the characters as they struggle with having to deal with life and death. This sad yet beautiful story reached into my heart and left me devastated, it makes you wonder what would happen if I was faced with my mortality or that of someone I loved. This is one story where you will need the tissue box and a good stiff drink or two. The love, hope and faith these characters had for one another will see you crying, laughing, sobbing and fighting right alongside them in this battle to live. I highly recommend this amazing story to anyone who loves a story that touches your heart in such a way that it will stay with you.
