THE FLIGHT OF HOPE: Is a gut wrenching full length contemporary romance novel by H.J. Bellus. 

Kick starting us off in the ‘Prologue’ the author has set the stage up for an emotional heart breaking read. 

In this we meet tomboy Marlee aka Birdie and her best friend Bentley Foster, two childhood friends that loved each other even before they knew or understood what love meant, we see them as youngsters fishing at their favourite place at the pond, to their senior years at high school, to newly weds.

Bentley never made it a secret that after their graduation he’d be following in his father's footsteps and enlisting in the Army which has been a lifelong dream of his. 

Marlee has always had that fear in the back of her mind that one day he’d never come back home to her. 

Their connection, their love oozes off the pages, the feels that rush at you as your on the same ride as Marlee as she falls in love with her best friend, their struggles to conceive, their fears, her gut wrenching heart break as she loses the man who mean't the world to her and a tether that would've held her strong through the most harrowing ordeal any person could endure but sadly in the same blink of an eye that life was lost to her also. 

Marlee takes off and heads to a small town where no one knows her name, her back ground, her loss and it's here where she slowly heals and meets another man who steals her breath away, signs that maybe Bentley hasn't finished with her just yet. Fight for your life, live Birdie 

Where there is love there is also heartbreak and along with Marlee we also suffer in silence as we clutch those soggy tissues to our hearts as we're put on another collision course of falling tears..

MY THOUGHTS: God this book destroyed me!! Reading reviews getting told to have tissues on the ready so many have told me that in the past and I've not taken it seriously because the book that made them all teary eyed left me dry as a bone. But this book I swear to god gutted me. 
I hit the spot where she's the survivor of a tragic accident and the author didn't really go into too much detail and I was thinking no no no go back, let me enjoy this heartbreaking moment naively thinking this was the part that everyone was going on about with the tissues how wrong could've I have been because blow me to China and back she came at me like a hurricane and I cried and cried like a new born baby. 
But how she did this was pure genius because instead of us riding that emotional train we rode a tsunami hit after hit. 
This book swept me along on the highs and lows of life, of love, of survival, I laughed, I giggled, I swooned, I cried, everything this author wanted me to feel I felt right down to my soggy tissues. 
Sit back, get some tissues a bottle of wine on the ready and be prepared to feel!!
