Cocoon Book Review

I have a really good book to share with you today called Cocoon written by Emily Sue Harvey.
New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry has said that, “Emily Sue Harvey has a sure touch and strong voice. She`s a talent to watch.” New York Times bestselling author Jill Marie Landis called Harvey’s first novel, SONG OF RENEWAL “an uplifting, heartwarming story.” Now Harvey returns with a tale as rich in drama as it poignant in the truths it tells. 
When widowed Seana Howard meets Barth McGrath, a newcomer to their little town, she never dreams she’ll fall in love again. Despite his somewhat quirky ways, she falls for the man. The only problem is that her married children do not trust the mysterious stranger. Who is he? Where exactly did he come from? Why are there so many questions about his past? 
Against their wishes, Seana elopes with Barth and is happier than she’s been in years. Then her happiness shatters when a mysterious illness suddenly befalls her, exiling her once brilliant mind to a dark nightmare from which she may never return. The eclipse is startling and complete. Will Barth, with such a short history with Seana, love her enough to endure the trials of caring for someone under such dire circumstances? Can her family get past their suspicions and trust his motives and love for their mother? Will Seana ever escape her dark cocoon and reclaim her very purpose for living? Will life give her a second chance to spread her wings, like a beautiful butterfly? 
COCOON is a life-affirming story of travail, obstacles, and the extraordinary lengths that undying love will travel.
This is a twofold story in that it is sad but also a wonderfully told love story that will stay with you and give you hope for that one true love.
Even though some of the time her family did not like Barth and didn't trust him, he did the honorable thing and stayed with Seana even when she got so sick and he almost lost her.
This is a lovely story about how a man decides his love for the woman he married is strong enough to withstand this trial. He waits patiently for her to recover and you will read about his daily battles to keep her alive and well.
Very inspiring and very teary eyed until the end. Keep a tissue handy because you will need one!
Happy Reading!

The inspiring person in my life was my mom, but sadly she passed away 4 months ago. Now I feel lost without her. Thanks for having this giveaway.
