Paul James loved Clara Bateman.
Hating her would have been easier.
She was the past, and he was hell-bent on keeping her there.
Or so he thought...
Craigslist Ad: DESPERATELY SEEKING EPIC
You’re my father.
I don’t know much about you. I know your name is Paul James, you’re a thrill seeker, and once upon a time you did stunts and people called you ‘Epic.’
I’ve been told you don’t know about me. That it’s complicated.
But for me it’s simple.
Here’s the thing: I’m twelve years old…and I’m dying.
And as much as this could crush my mother, I have to meet you before I go.
In time, I’m sure she’ll understand. She’s still in love with you.
So, Epic, if you read this, please come back. You don’t have to be my dad. You don’t even have to tell me you love me or you’re sorry. Just come see me.
Patiently waiting, but running out of time,
B N Toler lives in Virginia. When she's not reading and writing, she's thinking about reading and writing. Before she became a self-proclaimed writer, she worked as a real estate agent and as an orthodontic technician. **She will notice your teeth before your eyes or hair or anything.**
She enjoys shopping (way too much) and is on a first name basis with several employees at the local Target in her town.
She loves music,(bluegrass, country, 80's, actually she loves most music ~her favorite song is American Pie by Don McLean and she worships anything that is Elvis and Johnny Cash and Eric Church) dancing, (even though she sucks at it)reading, writing, eating (too much) sleeping late, (which she rarely gets to do) and laughing. If you can make her laugh, she will love you forever.
I've sat here staring at a blank page trying to wrack my brain as to how to best write this review to do this book justice. The truth is, I don't think I can. I love books that put my emotions through the wringer, especially ones that are written so well that I cry. My chest felt like I had an elephant sitting on it, the emotions were so strong. This wasn't just an ugly cry, this was a hideous, grotesque cry. I can't even count how many times I cried during Desperately Seeking Epic. I stopped keeping track at five. Never has a book affected me the way this one did.
B.N. Toler has crafted a beautiful book for her readers. Full of love, second chances, heartbreak and redemption, Desperately Seeking Epic belongs on every reader's shelf. While I'm off seeking my next great read, I'm going to have a hard time letting go of this one. Because, it's just that, epic.
