Lauren Barclay has put her life on hold so she could keep watch over her troubled younger sister, Jess. Eli Landry has his own set of huge familial problems. How in the world can these two ever get together? Especially when so much gets in their way? There were many times I thought it would never happen. With Lauren so wrapped up in her sister's life, I didn't think she'd ever stop long enough to seize the opportunity to get to know Eli better. While I did enjoy the character development of Lauren, Eli, Emma, Drew, and even Yonner, I seriously did not like her sister Jess. I understand - to a point - wanting to help your relatives, but I guess my familial bonds aren't that strong. Still, I did like so many other things about the novel - Gayle, Drew, Vee, Eli's mother - I found those subplots very interesting and they kept me intrigued. In all, I would recommend this to a friend.
There are times I read a book, put it down and basically forget the story. This was not the case with Life Support! My heart strings were being pulled from one side to the other like a rope during a rousing game of tug of war.
The medical drama present is riveting. At a certain point, I thought the author was going to take the story to a place I did not want it to go but instead she gave voice to one of the characters that lifted my heart and brought about happy tears. I was left with no doubt that the situations portrayed could be true.
Life Support is a beautiful story of the love between two brothers, the love between two sisters, and the love between two people who have devoted their lives to watching over their siblings. The story is quite satisfying with just the right touch of faith, suspense and romance. Fans of medical fiction will enjoy this fast-paced, arresting read.
