  • A wonderful story! Loved it!

    Let me start by saying :"You will need a box of tissues as you turn these beautiful pages! This is a layered, detailed novel of love, heartache, heartbreak, courage and resilience! Ava, Rick and their daughter Carly were one happy family until tragedy and devastating illness suddenly strike. It is certainly overwhelming as Ava attempts to hold herself and her family together as each day changes. Thankfully, strength from friends, doctors and each other, help them to make decisions, and prepare; as life becomes more of a challenge! This story will have you crying, laughing at times and being thankful for all you have in these times of turmoil for us all! You need to read this! I loved it!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A devastatingly, heartbreaking and yet beautiful s

    BLOG TOUR REVIEW Review for 'Her Last Chance' by Alison Ragsdale. Read and reviewed via NetGalley for Alison Ragsdale, Bookouture publishers and Bookouture anonymous Publication date 13th April 2020. This is the first book I have read by this author. I was originally drawn to this book by its beautiful eye catching cover and its intriguing synopsis. It also stated in the synopsis 'Readers of Kate Hewitt, My Sister’s Keeper and Diane Chamberlain will keep this story in their hearts forever'. I am a fan of Kate and Diane's books and LOVED 'My Sister's Keeper' so am looking forward to see if it loves up to this. I must admit I was also biased due to the publisher being Bookouture. I have yet to read a book published by Bookouture that I haven't enjoyed. Hopefully this won't be the first... Watch this space! (Written before I started reading the book). This novel consists of a prologue, 31 chapters and an epilogue. The chapters are short to medium in length so possible to read 'just one more chapter' before bed...OK, I know yeah right, but still just in case! This book is based in a fictional town based in Scotland, UK 🇬🇧. The bonus for me of books that are partly or fully based in the UK is that I live in the UK and have sometimes visited places mentioned in the book which makes it easier to picture. This book is written in third person perspective and the protagonist is Ava. The benefits of third person perspective are that it let's you see the bigger picture of what's going on and you get to know more characters more, what they are thinking and what they are doing. It feels like you get to see the whole picture and not miss out in anything. It is set over multiple timelines via flashbacks When books show what has happened in the past and what is happening in the present I find it really helps the reader (if it is well done) understand why things are happening and what has lead to the present activities and decisions. It also shows the bigger picture. 'Her Last Chance' discusses some topics that may trigger some readers. I like to point this out ahead of time in my reviews so you can judge if this book is for you or not. In this book Alison discusses children's health, car accident, coma, end of life care and more. Well ladies and gents if you are looking for a tear jerker you have come to the right place!!! This book has been beautifully written and it completely drew me in with its vivid descriptions. The storyline and synopsis worked perfect for this book. The storyline is stunningly devastating and it had me on the edge of my seat throughout. The cover states that this book is 'Utterly heartbreaking, gripping and emotional' and I couldn't agree more!!! It is such a powerful storyline that will stay with me for a long time. It was filled with love, heartbreak, friendship and loss and I was completely absorbed throughout. If you have ever read 'P. S I love you', 'Me before you' or 'My Sisters keeper' and enjoyed them then this book is definitely for you!! I love the fact that Alison focused on Stargardt disease and the fact that she most definitely did her research shines through!!! I have never heard of this before and I'm sure many others haven't either so it is great that she is bringing such awareness whole weaving it into such a beautiful storyline, that takes talent. The characters were well defined, realistic and strong. I cannot even begin to imagine the pain and suffering that Ava was going through, especially as a Mum myself, such a strong and passionate woman. However it wasn't just Ava that was string but also Carly who had all that to go through whilst being just a child. Ava, Carly and Rik are a perfect family unit and to watch them go through all that was absolutely heart wrenching. However where there was dark the light shone through and I was very glad of Cam and Jenna's friendship to them both and the support they both gave while having their own problems to deal with. This book absolutely grabbed my heart and mind and didn't let go while bringing tears to my eyes and I do not cry easily unless it comes to animals. So do make sure you have tissues at the ready!! Although this book brought me to tears I also think that it ended perfectly and would absolutely love to see this made into a film!!! Alison welcome aboard the favourite author train, I just need to make a stop at amazon to add all your books to my wishlist!!! Overall a devastatingly, heartbreaking and yet beautiful story that will leave you in tears. Genres covered in this novel include Literary Fiction and Fiction amongst others. I would recommend this book to the fans of the above as well as fans of of 'P. S I love you', 'Me before you' or 'My Sisters keeper' or just anyone who is looking for a beautiful tear jerker. 311 pages. This book is just 99p to purchase on kindle via Amazon which I think is an absolute bargain for this book!!! Rated 5/5 (I LOVED it ) on Goodreads, Instagram,

  • Heartbreaking, inspirational, beautiful

    To me, there is nothing better than reading a book with my whole heart. Her Last Chance is a beautifully-written book that reached every crevice of my heart, infused with warmth and the deep love between a wife and husband, and a daughter and her parents. When the family in this book receives devastating, life-altering news, they must rely on their devotion to each other to get them through the darkness and the pain. Ava, Rick, and Carly felt like my own family; I laughed with them, I rejoiced with them, I cried with them, I shared their grief and their hope. Such tender care is given to this family by the author; even in their despair, there was never any doubt that love would sustain them.

  • A very special story~ one not to miss.

    Her Last Chance by author, Alison Ragsdale (ARC) Ms. Ragsdale has never faltered in bringing to this particular reader a story that touches the heart in the most meaningful of ways, and 'Her Last Chance' is one of those stories. By filling the pages with the bittersweet of life and love, the rich, charming, and true to life descriptions, and her ability to spin beauty from chaos and devastation, Ms. Ragsdale once again had me captivated before I finished the first chapter. Her Last Chance~ a beautiful, breathtaking, tender yet compelling story of heartache and healing, with its greatest of joys and equally emotional elements of pain during unsurmountable circumstance, the author weaves a story of one family's hopes and dreams that will tickle you with its playful humor and shatter you with its soul-tugging sadness, a deep sorrow that will make your heart cry. Ava, a loving wife and mother, is looking forward to the next step in a bright future with her devoted husband Rick, their one true love they share and adore, their daughter Carly, as they make their way on to a new and exciting life together within the enchanting backdrop of Scotland. But their lives soon spiral in the most devastating of ways... Ava soon finds herself amongst the shards of tragedy and uncertainty~ having to face the realization that the most important things in her life are being threatened and quickly slipping beyond her control. As she rides the waves of emotion, from the darkest of hours, to the sporadic glimpses of hope and light that she desperately clings to, she must dig deep to find the courage and strength in meeting head-on the constant challenges that threaten those she loves most. Her Last Chance is an emotional journey through the joys and disappointments of life that gives to its reader the gift in knowing that even a whisper of love is stronger than any storm. I thank Ms. Ragsdale for this most wonderful story. One that has touched my heart, and happily recommend to anyone looking to experience something very special. 5 Stars #HerLastChance #AlisonRagsdale #Bookouture Wild Sage Book Blog
