SERIES: (The Darkest Sunrise #2) 
AUTHOR: Aly Martinez

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Bullshit.
Words destroyed me. 
“I’m sorry. She didn’t make it.”
“Daddy, he can’t breathe!” 
“There’s nothing more we can do for your son.”
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Lies.
Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn’t acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me.
Two words—that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness.
“He’s gone.” 
In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise. 
“Hi. I’m Charlotte Mills.”
Born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, Aly Martinez is a stay-at-home mom to four crazy kids under the age of five- including a set of twins.

Sticks and stones will break my bones,
but words will never harm me.
Bullshit.
Words destroyed me. 


Like all previous bloggers reading this before me I inhaled this, my emotions were all over the place

😀 HAPPY, 😞 TO NEARLY CRYING, 😢 TO CRYING, 🙂 TO HAPPINESS WHEN I REACHED THE ENDING, TO THAT BITTERSWEET FEELING THAT THIS HAS COME TO AN END ☹️ I LOVED THIS SERIES ❤️..

This is the kind of outstanding book that you could imagine unfolding in life, it could happen to any one of us, it has happened.

One child stolen to replace one that had died
One lady mourning the abduction of her child and living in darkness for ten years only to briefly step into the light again. To be plunged back into the darkness. 
A roller coaster of epic proportions when told he was dead, only to be told in the next breath hold on a minute he's alive, a custody battles ensues, fighting over a confused, scared boy. The emotional upheaval for all involved. A truly raw, gut wrenching, emotional read. 

Out of the darkness and into the light 

I'm always chasing those books where the author can bring out all those feels that I wouldn't necessarily feel in life and this author delivered them all on a bitter sweet silver platter. I was all over the place reading this, normally in life I'm not a crier but this author had me crying more times than I want to admittedly count. At one point in the story I didn't think I could go on, that's when the floodgates opened up and I had to go back and reread what I'd read because it didn't make sense, and I was elated with the outcome and beyond happy that I'd sucked it up, pulled those big girls undies up and carried on PHEW because the other outcome even threw me into darkness. 
I highly highly recommend this series. I'm sorry for this no frills review but you'll thank me in the end when you take the plunge and one click this come release day.
