About the Book:
Rosie Cooke is “in between.” In between consciousness and oblivion. Life and death. And though some say that when you’re near death your entire life flashes before your eyes, Rosie can’t remember anything at all—not even how she ended up in a coma. At least not at first. Then something strange starts to happen. Rosie finds herself revisiting scattered moments from her past: a beach vacation, a play rehearsal, the day her brother was born. But why these memories? And what do they mean? As each piece of the puzzle comes into focus, Rosie struggles to face the picture of her life that forms. But with every look backward comes a glimpse of what might be: A relationship with her sister. The opportunity to pursue her passion. A second chance at love. And Rosie just might discover that she has much to live for.
She just floated in the gray, the halfway, the in-between.
Let me start with the writing style. Eva Woods managed to create this lyrical tone in the book that made the words flow off the page. She created deep emotion in a short time and created a story that hits close to home, regardless of who you are or the experiences you have had.
The story itself was absolutely breathtaking. To have to go through what Rosie does is heart wrenching. The decisions she has to make and the things she has to see are so vivid, that you feel like you are right there in her position.
Eva Woods is a master at writing complex and emotional stories about families. With The Inbetween Days she delves into her characters' pasts and their present, unravels the secrets they keep, even from those they most love. She explores the complexities of human nature, the questions we women often ask ourselves. Can we live with our most difficult choices? What really is love? The answers are not easy.
A powerful novel, intense, and moving. You can't help but find yourself taking note of the people and things that make your life worth living, after this experience.
