Review: Interrupted: Life Beyond Words by Rachel Coker

About the book:
Can love really heal all things?
 
 If Sam Carroll hadn’t shown up, she might have been able to get to her mother in time. Instead, Allie Everly finds herself at a funeral, mourning the loss of her beloved mother. She is dealt another blow when, a few hours later, she is sent from Tennessee to Maine to become the daughter of Miss Beatrice Lovell, a prim woman with a faith Allie cannot accept.

Poetry and letters written to her mother become the only things keeping Allie’s heart from hardening completely. But then Sam arrives for the summer, and with him comes many confusing emotions, both toward him and the people around her. As World War II looms, Allie will be forced to decide whether hanging on to the past is worth losing her chance to be loved.

My thoughts:

Interrupted is the first book I've read by Rachel Coker and it was so good! I enjoy reading WWII novels, but I've never read a YA set during that time before.

Parts of the story were so sad and I felt for Allie as she went through painful experiences. Then there were moments that were beautiful and sweet -- especially the ones with Sam. I really liked Sam and how he stayed Allie's friend, even when she didn't act very friendly towards him! He was my favorite character. :)


Overall, a really good book! I recommend Interrupted - it's an interesting, clean read.
