Fiercely independent Helen Winters was born completely blind, but she vowed never to let her disability keep her down. She did not expect a traumatic event to devastate her life and force her to drop out of college. Disillusioned by the cruelty of people, Helen retreated from society to live by herself as a reclusive writer in the woods—where no one could ever hurt her again.

When a brilliant young doctor shows up on her doorstep, promising her that his new research can give her the ability to see for the first time, Helen stubbornly refuses. She has learned not to trust anyone, and to rely only on herself. But Dr. Liam Larson will not take no for an answer. He makes it his personal mission to rescue Helen from her loneliness, and bring joy into her world once more—the joy she has denied herself for so long.

When Helen’s demons come racing back into her life, threatening to rip her apart and destroy the strength she has carefully rebuilt, Liam is the only one who might be able to save her.

Can he reach the broken girl in time, helping her to heal and see the world in a different light? Or will Helen’s grief send her spiraling out of control, lost to him forever?

My Rating: 2 stars

My Thoughts:
This book was really just very unextraordinary.  I think I may have had the wrong mindset going into this book.  I was expecting a new adult book and this definitely falls into adult, which isn't really my thing.
I thought the characters were overall pretty bland.  There were some funny moments, especially with Owen, but Helen really bored me.
The plot was, while like nothing I've read before, wasn't something I'd ever really want to revisit. It just wasn't really something I'm super interested in.
The writing was decent, but it didn't suck you in.
I don't have a whole lot to say about this book. It wasn't awful, but I certainly wouldn't say that it is very good, and I would only recommend this to someone who feels like they would really like this book.

Thanks for reading!
