From the bestselling author of Just Remember to Breathe
Twenty-seven year old Carrie Thompson-Sherman has the life she always wanted: her PhD, a prestigious fellowship, and an amazing husband.
Her charmed life begins to unravel as a jealous colleague puts her fellowship in jeopardy and a hideous secret Ray carried home from Afghanistan comes to light. Hanging on by a single thread, a disastrous accident puts both her husband and her sister’s lives at risk. Heartbroken, Carrie will be faced with the most devastating choice of her life.
A choice that will change everything.
The Last Hour is part of a series of novels centering around the Thompson sisters. Though the books center on the same family, they are standalone novels and can be read in any order.

I came up with that quote a long time ago when I was in the middle of a self proclaimed life crisis. I have kept it in my mind as a quiet mantra but I feel that it was so prevalent for this book. When I read this book I sent this message to Charles
” This book tore my soul and heart out. Even a week later I still think about it and I get goosebumps. I think in a way there is hope too amongst all the sadness. Because it was real, it was more real than anything I have ever read.”
I have a story, it is long and drawn out and has its ups and downs, happys and sads. It is full of rollercoasters of emotions and I am always keeping my eyes open for that light at the end of the tunnel happy ending. I am also holding out hope that people will give it to me just the way it is, be real and honest and true. Because having belief in yourself and the goodness of others is a happy ending in its own right. In saying that this book gave me all of those things, I needed more than a box of tissues throughout and sprinkled in were times that I was laughing so hard I held my sides. It is a beautiful testament to love, family and the journey that is life. Charles knows how to immerse you so far into his work that you almost feel like the real world is a fantasy when it is over. I am so grateful to have this as part of my collection.
I wrote this without any of the content being revealed because it was just so much that I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys. It had all of my favorite characters in it. It had laughter and tears and an experience you will never forget. Please go out and get your copy ASAP.
