Grade: A

This is a heartbreaking and heartwarming story all wrapped into one. It is a very emotional and moving story.

The idea of an angel guide is quite unique and really sets this book apart from a lot of other books. The author skills are clearly shown, she creates a wonderful story.


It makes you wonder what you would do if you suddenly lost a loved one. I liked how the relationship between Josh and Gabriel develops, it’s very heartwarming, and realistic.

This is a touching story and the ending is very compelling. I would recommend this book to anyone that is looking for an emotional journey, that’s well written and unique.

** I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

About the Author:

“Writing where the muse takes me…

I think I’ve always had stories in my head, and never really realized that not everyone else did.

I’ve been writing for what seems like a very long time. Writing was always my favorite subject in school and I still have a very thick folder of stories I started in third grade. I started writing a little more seriously when I was sixteen and got majorly bitten by the writing  bug when  I was 18. At 22, after losing my sweet muse I decided to take a chance at submitting. What followed was my first request for my first romantic suspense novel.

My writing ranges from contemporary romance to paranormal romance, light urban fantasy and women’s fiction. Very excited for my first 2012 releases, HER PROTECTOR a romantic suspense and DARK INTENT a paranormal romance, which might be the start of a series.

In my non writing time I enjoy gardening, photography listening to music, watching hockey, and doing yoga”

Review: In The Blink of an Eye by L.M Young “Heartbreakingly Beautiful”


This is a breathtakingly lovely book. A woman’s struggle to come to terms with the loss of her sister, and chronicling her journey to help other people who are going through the same struggles.

She writes letters to her sister throughout the book, exposing her thoughts, feelings and heartbreak trying to work through her loss, one letter at a time.

After the letters come poems, poems about the loss, the struggle and the hurt. Poems about carrying on and about finding hope.

She writes about touching memories, and thought and discussions that haunt her now that her sister has passed away:

“You simply replied…“I’m not strong enough to live without you…so God will have to take me first ”.

We laughed that remark off…never giving more thought or energy to it; until January 4th came.”

Her book, designed to show her journey but also to guide others who are grieving themselves, with kind words, and hopeful thoughts.

“If there was anything I could say to another person about any of this, it would be to spend more time with their loved ones. Spend more time laughing at the small stuff and less time worrying about things you have no control over. In life, we will only have the memories of the laughter and sometimes…the memories will have to be enough.”

The author looks back on her life struggles, being in a coma, car accident, cancer, and remembers her sister’s wisdom and guidance during those times. Her sister’s presence in her life.

This is a wonderful book, a wonderful memoir of one woman’s struggle to come to terms with loss. The letters and poetry are so real, and heartfelt, there’s no question about the quality of the book.

This isn’t really a book you can review, there’s no real plot to this story, it’s just a person’s journey through life, and it’s wonderful that they decided to share it with the world.
