Fallen Billow should be in college like most of her friends, but instead she’s raising her brother and working as a housekeeper at a vintage local hotel. It’s back-breaking work, but not nearly as challenging as fending off unwanted advances from the hotel’s owner.
Thomas McHugh is fighting for our country, across the globe and decades before Fallen Billow was even born. So there’s no way they’re soul mates. There’s no way he can be desperate to see her, hold her, kiss her. Except there is.
Is it a dream when he inks his name on her skin? Is it a delusion when she puts her hands on his face and says she loves him? Nothing has ever felt more real.
Fate has etched paths for Thomas and Fallen that even time cannot touch. A Purple Heart proclaims Thomas’ valor and bravery. And his death. But Fallen dares to dream of the impossible. She wants Thomas to stay. Just stay.
A tribute to all who have served our country, this novel honors the impossible beauty of love and the endless power of hope. Come open your heart and celebrate the many facets of bravery with Fallen and Thomas.
Sometimes you are lucky enough to find a book that takes your breath away. Lately these books are few and far between but you know what I’m talking. The kind of book that you want to savor yet you can’t seem to put it down.
When I read the blurb for Debra Anastasia’s newest release, For All the Evers, I was sold. I immediately one clicked on release day and began reading that night.
I was lost in Debra’s words—completely breathtaking and poetic.
This is a love story that will take hold of your heart. Thomas and Fallon move mountains to be together and when they are, God their love is beautiful, you feel it in your bones.
“I felt like I’d been waiting to see you my whole life, that my soul was off center until you put your arms around me. I felt safe, and until then I hadn’t even been sure what safe was.”
You can feel the love, sweat and tears Ms. Anastasia poured into this story and it will stay with you long after you finish the last page.
I can’t begin to stress how important it is to avoid spoilers prior to reading this incredible story. My review may be vague, but what I can tell you is this book, by far, has earned its way into my top ten list this year. The love, the tears, the joy, the bravery, and yes, the sadness will consume you.
This being my first book by Debra Anastasia, (gasp, I know, I need to fix that ASAP), I was blown away by her gift of creating magic within the pages.
“You broke down a door to get to me.”
“I’d break down every door in the world to get right here. With you. Right now.” He slipped underneath her, pulling her body on top of his.
Absolutely brilliant!! Do not miss For All the Evers. You will fall in love!!!
About Debra Anastasia
There are a lot of eyes in Debra Anastasia’s house in Maryland. First, her own creepy peepers are there, staring at her computer screen. She’s made two more sets of eyes with her body, and the kids they belong to are amazing. The poor husband is still looking at her after 17 years of marriage. At least he likes to laugh. Then the freaking dogs are looking at her—six eyeballs altogether, though the old dog is blind. And the cat watches her too, mostly while knocking stuff off the counter and doing that internal kitty laugh when Deb can’t catch the items fast enough.
In between taking care of everything those eyes involve, Debra creates pretend people in her head and paints them on the giant, beautiful canvas of your imagination. What an amazing job that is. The stories hit her hard while driving the minivan or shaving her legs, especially when there’s no paper and pen around. Within all of the lies she writes hides her heart, so thank you for letting it play in your mind.
