This book was not only a journey into the rainforests of Nicaragua but into the heart and soul. I loved this book so much and never wanted it to end. I found myself laughing and smiling a lot of the time. There is such humor in Heger’s writing that I felt like all of these characters were my friends or at least I wanted them to be my friends.
What I also loved about this book was the medical procedures that were described. I don’t want to spoil too much, but the delivery of a baby in a village is probably one of my favorites scenes out of the whole book. The care it took to write the scene is evident and I felt like I was there rooting for Annie and Felipe to deliver that baby. It was so powerful.
The love story between Annie and Felipe wasn’t always one of butterflies and rainbows. There was conflict that made their relationship more believable. The New Adult genre is one I am still discovering and this novel is one that I will be recommending to people that want something different, fun, and passionate. May I also say that this would be the perfect book to take along on a trip. You won’t be disappointed.
