    • In a genre flooded with similar storylines, Last Words sets itself apart from the masses with a taboo, second chance love story like nothing I ve ever read before It is a riveting story about loss, resilience and hope We get not one, but two love stories in Last Words through two different POV s, Amelia s story takes place in the past and Emma s chapters are in the present Amelia s story in was difficult to read at times while we learned of the horrors she endured during WWII But I was riveted b [...]

    • This book was something a little different than what I have been used to with Shari Ryan s books and I will admit I was a little hesitant to read it, not knowing what to expect and if it would be something I would enjoy Having said that, I know that I will never do the review of this book justice This book was something truly special, starting from the moment I picked it up I knew early on that this book would be powerful, profound, and probably cause some tears to fall and in this I was definit [...]


    • Wow, just wow This book was amazing, it truly was an emotional, powerful, heart wrenching but beautiful read The non fiction part is really heartbreaking to read at times, but it s a story that needs to be told and never forgotten The fiction part is beautifully written, I loved Emma, I was so pleased she left her bad relationship behind and gave Jackson a chance with a little help from Amelia I, like Jackson, couldn t wait to read from Amelia s diary I really felt as if I was there with her, I [...]


    • If I could give this book 100 stars, I would It was such a touching story that was also based on true history It approached a subject that many authors wouldn t write about, the Holocaust, and made it a story with heart I especially appreciated the way the story seamlessly flowed between current time and the past by using a journal I think it adequately gave insight into what happened in that horrible part of history, but there was also a deeper, hopeful message Even in a time of great darkness [...]
