Publisher's Summary

I proposed on our first date.

She laughed and told me I was insane. Less than a day later, she said yes.

It was a whirlwind, but we were happy.

Until we got greedy and wanted a family.

It was a life I couldn't give her, not for lack of trying. Fertility just wasn't on our side. We sought out doctors and treatments. Spent money we didn't have. Lied to our families. Smiled for our friends. Put on a brave face for a world that didn't understand.

Finally, we were successful.

Until we were forced to bury our son.

We were left broken, battered, and destroyed.

They say love is in the details, but it was the details that ruined us.

This is the story of how I took back what had always been mine.

The retrieval of my wife and our family.

    "WOW!!! Breathtaking!!"

    Amazing! This has got to be the most captivating book I have listened to. Brilliantly written and I am eager to download Volume 2. Brilliantly narrated. I can't credit this book enough. I'd give it ten stars if I could and I would definitely urge, more than recommend, this book to everyone who wants to listen to an action packed, thrill a minute, 'real life' story. Awesome!

    "Good story, narration varied performance"

    The story is capturing and deals with modern dilemmas.

    Male narration was great. I believe there are two female voices; one for Elizabeth and one for Claire. Unfortunately narration for Claire was very poor and it spoilt the book for me. I would have given top stars if it wasn't for Claire's narration.

    Why there are no credits for both narrators? I would like to know Claire's to ensure I avoid in the future.

    "Loved this book"

    I love how captivating this book is! It's interesting to hear both perspectives of thoughts and feelings from Elizabeth and Roman...the past and the present! Can't wait to read book two!!

    Story
    "Woah"

    I really didn't know what to expect as I didn't read the blurb but someone told me, "I think it's about a couple that had a miscarriage". Imagine my surprise when it was not only so flatly about a couple who had lost a baby, but it was soooo much more.

    The love between Elisabeth and Roman was PALPABLE. The alpha manly way that Roman takes his life and his woman back was hot AF. The. There is sooo much more with the side story with Clare. I just had no idea that I would be this sucked into this audio and so incredibly invested in the story. I didn't even want to pause for a review.

    Do I even need to mention Jason, Maxine and Andi? We all know they are amazing, we all know they fail at nothing and all they do is win.
