Synopsis According to Goodreads:
Filled with grace, sensitivity and compassion, The Promise of Stardust is an emotionally resonant and thought-provoking tale that raises profound questions about life and death, faith and medicine, and illuminates the power of love to divide and heal a family in the wake of unexpected tragedy
Matt Beaulieu was two years old the first time he held Elle McClure in his arms, seventeen when he first kissed her under a sky filled with shooting stars, and thirty-three when he convinced her to marry him. Now in their late 30s, the deeply devoted couple has everything-except the baby they’ve always wanted.
Divided by the love they share, Matt and Linney will be pitted against each other, fighting for what they believe is right, and what they think Elle would have wanted resulting in a controversial legal battle that will ultimately go beyond one family . . . and one single life.
What I Thought of The Promise of Stardust
I received this book as a gift and was unsure that I would get into it from the description. Still, I decided to give it a try and man-am I glad I did. Big events happen within the first few pages, and after the first couple of chapters I was enthralled with the story. This story is a heart-wrenching tale of love and grief, and the author portrays her character’s emotions very well. The characters feel real-they aren’t written with crazy pretenses or flowered up to seem super-human. They just feel human, which ultimately allows them to be related to better. It allows you to sympathize and ache for them.
This book is very well written and involved-a fact which caused me to become very invested in the characters and where the story was going. I’d highly recommend it.
