Heartbreakingly Raw. Breathtakingly Poignant.

Breathtaking. The Five Stages of Falling in Love was simply a breathtaking novel. Author Rachel Higginson did a fabulous job describing the myriad of emotions someone goes through after the loss of a loved one. There was such honesty in how she presented Liz’s feelings and thoughts. The emotions were raw, oftentimes painful, but with some moments of happiness and joy.
