    Simply perfection

    ** Review by Gayle from Bloggers from Down Under ** You’re my perfect, you’re my salvation, you’re my everything It’s not often…No let me re-phrase…. It’s so rare as reader that you come across a book that will completely swallow you whole, and I mean that in every sense of the word, but Dying Wish did that to me. Brutal, highly confronting, emotional to the highest of degrees, heartbreaking, soul changing, gut wrenching…. These are the only words I can give to explain to you all how I felt reading this. It completely broke me, shattered my heart, splintered my very core, and even after finishing it a day a go, I am still not sure how I can explain to you what this book did to me. This book for me was everything I could have honestly asked for and so much more. We meet three beautiful souls, young and carefree, the world is at their feet. They are best friends, soul mates….Alice, Elijah and Rebecca. Alice and Rebecca are inseparable. Best friends since as far back as they can remember, they have a special bond, sisters in fact and nothing will ever get between them. Elijah….He has watched Alice at a distance. He has known her since forever and wants nothing more than to speak to her, to hold her, to declare his feelings for her. He wants more with her. And Alice…She wants more with him. They will get their more? This is their story. A story about hope and strength A story about fear and pain. A story about friendship and love that will never be broken. Please hear me when I say you need to read this. Dying Wish is a novel that will stay with me always. It will be forever ingrained into my heart and soul, and I know it will forever stay with you. A beautifully written book with such depth and meaning it will leave you speechless. To Margaret all I can say is this. Thank you for giving us perfection. Thank you for giving us Alice, Elijah and Rebecca. Thank you. 5 stars

    This story will stay with you for a long time

    *** I voluntarily reviewed this book, I gained no monetary incentives nor was I specifically requested to review the book, these are my honest ramblings and I hope you enjoy reading them - kat*** So this book as you will by the title and blurb will require you to have tissues at the ready, and I am going to make this review as spoiler-free as I can do, so this will make the review short. I knew this book was going to be a tear-inducing read, the author and other early review posts on my facebook feed had prepared me, and also having read Margaret McHeyzer's book Ugly I knew that the author has a talent for creating emotional stories. Being prepared I wanted to be as strong as I could, and although I had an ever-present lump in my throat, I did make it to chapter 23... but then I was toast! after the end of chapter 22 I was sobbing I had to stop and take a break before continuing. Alice and Becky have grown up together, sisters if not in blood but in souls, and then at 17 Alice meets Elijah. In Happy fairy tales, Alice and Elijah will live happily ever after, but Margaret likes to write books that are more true to life, and sometimes fate has a different path for people. Margaret writes about these characters, the ones that will touch a reader's soul, these characters may be fiction, but their journey will make you contemplate your own and it did with me. I am going to say that I found Part 2 harder to read than Part 1, as with Death its the ones left behind that feel the worst pain, so as such part 2 being about life after Alice passes it was more real, there was pain, grief, but also hope and possibilities for happiness after Alice for Elijah. Ms McHeyzer did a superb job in writing each scene, I think I will probably want to read every book she produces. she has hit me 2 for 2 so far. one of my favourite parts of the book was when Ms. Lauren speaks about how she viewed Alice as a pupil. People may never realise how they touch a person in just being in their lives, but how Margaret set this scene it was an eye opener for me, how my perspective of the character changed just by that paragraph... There are numerous scenes I could quote but that would spoil your enjoyment, so I will finish by saying, I loved being broken by Margarets story... eventually I was put together again, but Alice and her journey will stay with me for a long time. The trailer and the song that were done for this book are also captivating, give it a watch and I bet you will be adding this book to your To Be Read list
