Review: Beyond These Walls by J.L Berg- 5/5 stars
This entire review have spoilers in it so if you have not read the first book do not read this.
Happily ever after.
That was what we were supposed to have.
Pudding cups, sandy toes and a lifetime of making each and every one of our dreams come true—that is the future I’d promised her.
I could see it in my dreams, hold it in my hands, but then I watched as all of our hopes and wishes suddenly slipped through my fingers like sand.
I thought the worst was behind us, but what if we’d just delayed the inevitable?
They say love can overcome any obstacle. But can it survive death?
The breathtaking love story of Lailah and Jude concludes in Beyond These Walls.
After finishing the last book I was a total emotional mess so actually I went back and read a few books that I have read previously before continuing on with this book. I was really excited to see what happened after the last scene in the last book. In the beginning it is not quite as emotional Thank God because I was not sure if I could hold it together with the whole book being emotional again. This book makes you learn so much about life and how we must live it the best you can. I honestly think this story is super inspirational for everyone. Have to do with overcoming everything in life even when the odds are against you. It's also about learning to live with the one person who can make you who you are.
I was really happy to see Jude and Lailah growing up together and actually having a life together. Over the last 2 years they have overcome so much and Lailah has changed a bit from who she you yousto be. She was super naive, sheltered and innocent. Now she has become this beautiful woman who has so much spunk and personality even more than she used to. You get to see how she's grown with in all this time from when the last book ended till the end of this book amazing to see what she has accomplished. Then we come to Jude he is pretty much the same as he was in the first novel. Although he is a little bit less protective and overbearing now that layla is healthier than she was. The beginning of the story before the wedding there is a lot of stress for the couple so it definitely takes a toll on them and their situations. Then with Jude in the business while Lailah is in school they have less time together. There were some shocks that I thought could happen (baby) and threaten Lailahs safety. This was the big conflict in the novel especially for Jude because he has a child coming and then there is the chance that if Lailah keeps it she can die. The ending was so cute with Lailahs someday list. This whole story made me so sad, so I cried alot. These are the quotes I like:
I highly recommend this book it is amazing love story.
