Despite having narrowly escaped death's clutches, Christopher Barlow is grateful for nothing. His capacity to love has been crushed. He hates everyone and everything, completely unable to see past the gray stain of misery that coats his perception of the world. It's only after he involuntarily joins a band of depressed misfits who are struggling to overcome their own problems, does Christopher start to re-evaluate his lot in life.
What could they possibly learn from one another? How could they possibly help each other to heal? And the question that Christopher asks himself over and over again... can he learn to love again?
He's about to find out as he embarks upon a cross country trip with a beautiful woman who is going blind, a boy with terminal cancer, and an abuse victim who can't decide whether she wants to live or die.
Four people with nothing in common but their destination. They will encounter adventure, thrills, loss and love. And within their travels they will learn the greatest lesson of all.
The hard truth about sunshine...
So when signing up to read this book for a book tour all I needed to know was that this book was by Sawyer Bennett and that was it. I was sold to wanting to read this book, didn't even know what I was getting myself into. Going in blindly into this book I found that I really loved it. To be honest it was a tough read though, its not for everyone, might even need a trigger warning but overall a great book. There was such an interesting set of characters of different backgrounds that made it easy to care for each one. I loved getting to know about Christopher and what made him like the way he was. I loved getting to know about each of the characters over time throughout the book. I loved getting that back and forth with the reasoning behind Christopher even joining group in the first place and what was going on present day I'm not kidding when I say that this book really plays with your emotions though. Oh and towards the ending. Sheesh I had to stop reading for a moment then get back back. Overall this book was great and I recommend you readers check it out.
