This week I'm sharing...


Here's the synopsis:
Life as Kim and Krickitt Carpenter knew it was shattered beyond recognition on November 24, 1993. Two months after their marriage, a devastating car wreck left Krickitt with a massive head injury and in a coma for weeks.

When she finally awoke, she had no idea who Kim was. With no recollection of their relationship and while Krickitt experienced personality changes common to those who suffer head injuries, Kim realized the woman he had married essentially died in the accident.

And yet, against all odds, but through the common faith in Christ that sustained them, Kim and Krickitt fell in love all over again. Even though Kim stood by Krickitt through the darkest times a husband can ever imagine, he insists, “I’m no hero. I made a vow.”

Here are my thoughts:
Wow.  Wow wow wow.  You know how everyone says the book is always better than the movie?  This is definitely the case here.  I liked the movie, but I wasn't moved by it.  I finished the book in less than 24 hours- and if weren't for a little thing called sleep, I would've finished it even sooner.  This didn't even need Channing Tatum on the cover to sell the story.  Read it.  Read it now.

What are you currently reading?
