The Friday 56 and Book Beginnings on Friday
Anyone can participate in Book Beginnings on Friday and The Friday 56.
This week I'm sharing the beginning, and page 56, from Samantha Darling's 2nd book, Time
Through the darkest day and the coldest night, keep
faith, for tomorrow has to come.
“The blood test has revealed your husband’s kidney function is extremely poor and this needs to be cared for in hospital.”
My brain doesn’t seem to be processing what this man…Dr Khan is telling me.
I’m still half asleep. It’s an awful feeling when you are woken up…I feel cold and shivery and shaky…and now this. I remember the phlebotomist coming to the house this morning to take the bloods and never even dreamed it would result in a midnight call.
“Babe, it’s okay. Let the doctor finish.”
With those words, Isobel Smith had no idea of the months ahead. Not long married, pregnant and a wonderful future promised with her husband, Jason, her hopes and dreams die in that one simple sentence.
Follow her in her harrowing journey as Isobel learns the resilience of the female spirit, and gradually puts her life back together for the sake of their child.
James, her husband’s best friend, is the rock that keeps her together.
But will James’ own battle with his grief end up tearing them apart?
Harrowing and gritty, you must not miss this emotional read from debut author, Samantha Darling, as she takes you on a heart wrenching but ultimately uplifting journey.
