Book Description:
 Tess Johnson has it all: her handsome photographer husband Beau, a thriving business, and a newly discovered pregnancy. When Beau accepts an overseas photography assignment, Tess decides to wait to reveal her secret—only she’s never given the chance. Beau’s helicopter crashes in the desert.

Tess struggles with the news of Beau’s death and tries to put her life back together. Alone and dealing with a pregnancy that only reminds her of what she has lost, Tess is adrift in a world of failed plans and fallen expectations. When a new client appears offering more than just a new project, Tess must confront the circumstances of her life head on.

Meanwhile, two Iraqi women who are fleeing honor killings find Beau barely alive in the middle of the desert, his body ravaged by the crash. Suha, a doctor, and Samira, a widow and mother of three young children, nurse him back to health in a makeshift tent. Beau bonds with the women and children, and together, with the help of an underground organization, they continue their dangerous escape.

What happens next is a test of loyalties, strength, and love. 

My Review:
My first words for this book are: Amazing, Excellently written, and a Tear Jerkier!
WOW!! Melissa Foster has written an exceptional story about love, war, hurt, and emotional challenges. I have only read two of Melissa's books, but I can honestly say that I would read her books over and over.

I  was automatically thrown into Tess' life. Tess is an awesome self made strong (so everyone thinks) woman. She runs her own company and married to a very successful photographer. Tess finds out she is expecting, and knowing their five year plan, she decides to wait to let everyone know. Is that a good idea?

Beau, oh my, decides to take an assignment that takes him into Iraqi. Then the worst thing happens, the helicopter he was in was hit and crashes. Tess and everyone believes he is dead. Can Tess, friends, and his family get on with their life?

There are so many twist and turns, heart wrenching, heart warming, screaming, loyalty divided and wonderful memory scenes in this amazing book. I will not get into specifics due to not wanting to give away the book. But let me say this. This is a "Must Read Book for this year!! Just make sure you have a box of tissues waiting.

So since I was able to get into the story line right away, could not put it down, characters were believable I am going to give this book my breath of life rating of:

5 Clock Rating!
