REVIEW: Butterfly Dreams by A. Meredith Walters

She’s waiting to die. . . . Corin Thompson is paralyzed by her obsession with mortality. Having lost both of her parents, she is terrified by the idea that she too will die young, and she loses control at any sign of illness. But when Corin connects with someone who has survived a very real brush with death, she begins to see the world in a whole new way.

He’s learning to live. . . . As Corin struggles under the weight of her neuroses, Beckett Kingsley is attempting to rebuild a life that feels all too temporary. With the ever-present threat of heart failure never far from his mind, he just wants to make the most of whatever time he has left. And that means pursuing the girl he never expected to find.

Together, Corin and Beckett finally learn to let go of their fears and take solace in everyday pleasures. Who knows what the future holds? After all, nothing lasts forever—the only promise they have is right now.

4.5 "Sure" STARS

This was an emotional read. Ms. Walters knows how to hit you where it counts and drive home a real,poignant message loud and clear!

“Stop thinking about your life in increments. Seconds. Minutes. Days. Look at the bigger picture and embrace whatever time you have. Don’t look constantly toward the end. Enjoy the right now.”
This is a tale of two broken hearts. One literally and the other figuratively but both as life threatening. Corin Thompson is stuck. Marred in grief and fear and resisting to live her life. Beckett Kingsley is a young vibrant, active man with a sudden and life altering heart condition.

Fate, kismet or whatever it was, brings these two together at just the right moment. These two just naturally clicked and were so right for each other. Their connection was natural and a slow build but so real.
“I need someone who can ride the wave with me. No matter what happens.”
Ms. Walters has this natural knack for creating flawed yet lovely and endearing characters. Corin made me laugh out loud and also sob. I too could feel the suffocating butterflies. Yet when Beck was around: this light, this force, like Corin, I too could feel those fluttering and giddy butterflies!
If you're looking for a special read with love, life, death and hope, this is worth the read!
