One Wrong Turn by Deanna Lynn Sletten ~ My Thoughts and a Giveaway!

One Wrong Turn

One Wrong Turn: A Novel by Deanna Lynn Sletten
Paperback and e-book, 204 pages
Published: June 20th 2017 by Lake Union Publishing

Author Deanna Lynn Sletten returns with an unforgettable novel about one man’s crisis of self and his greatest act of love.

The words “I'm her husband” roll off Clay Connors’s tongue, but with his estranged wife lying in a coma—and no assurance that she’ll awaken—he knows he’s perilously close to losing everything. A singular, terrifying accident has left Jess Connors suspended between life and death. Now Clay is reunited with the family he hasn’t seen for two years, including the daughters he left behind.

Clay should have been there for his family. He never should have stayed away so long. The alcohol that took over his life destroyed everything but a shred of his self-preservation. Sober and haunted, Clay revisits the memory of love, marriage, and how his life unraveled. He hopes that by trying to reconnect with the daughter who blames him and the daughter who barely knew him, he can find a light of hope in this darkest hour. As his family faces its most grueling, emotional test yet, Clay must summon the courage to make right what was wrong—and find forgiveness from his harshest judge: himself.

My thoughts about One Wrong Turn ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"Jessica Conners gripped the steering wheel as she maneuvered the twists and turns on Highway 1 along the Northern California coastline."

I love Deanna's stories and I get lost in them as soon as I start reading the first lines. One Wrong Turn grabbed my heart from the start and I loved my roller-coaster journey through the lives of Jess and Clay and their two wonderful daughters, Maddie, the spunky teenager, and Jilly-bear, the seven-year-old, who is wise beyond her years.

This story was such an emotional read that tugged at my heartstrings. It broke my heart watching this family struggle as they tried to deal with the reality of their beloved wife and mother lying in a coma in the hospital. They all need Jessica so much and if the power of love can heal, they should be able heal their broken family. But can they find it in their hearts to forgive? And is their love going to be strong enough to pull Jess back and fix what is broken? 

One Wrong Turn is an amazing love story; a story of strength, perseverance, and forgiveness that will stay with you long after the last page is turned.
