About The Book
Whir, beep, click, breath. Whir, beep, click, breath.
Pippa Gallagher is rushed in to hospital following a traffic accident. As Pippa lies unconscious, she is aware of fragments. The day she met Steve Gallagher, her best friend and the man who would become the love of her life. The heartbreak she felt that night as she got into her car, her eyes blurry from tears.
Meanwhile Steve sits at her bedside, his eyes fixed on her pale, still face. He has no idea where his wife was going when she crashed. No clue as to why she became distracted behind the wheel. All he knows is that she is his world.
And that he wasn’t there when she needed him most.
For the next twelve hours, Steve tells Pippa all the reasons he loves her. But is it too late? Can Pippa find her way back to him?
What would you say if the person you love most is in coma and you only have 12 hours to wake her/him up? I really wouldn’t like to be in Steve’s shoes today, it doesn’t have to be easy seeing your wife in a coma and not knowing if she’ll wake up or how she will wake up… But on the other side, the story he will tell us is so precious and real that it’s impossible to not feel connected with them.
This is a bittersweet story; with ups and downs, it feels so real and painful that it’s quite impossible to not drop a tear or two while you are reading it.
The story is told between two different characters, Steve and her wife, Pippa, they have so many stories together to share that it seems quite impossible to think that fate has decided to separate them forever.
This is a book to fall in love with love, but not the perfect love where there’s nothing wrong and everyone is perfect, but the real one. The one that fills with the small details, the day to day and love for each other. Be prepared to read the story of your life.
