Such an emotional story

A wonderful story which will take you on and emotional rollercoaster. Written and narrated beautifully by awesome author Kelly Moore and the dulcet tones of Sarah Puckett. It is amazing how a 3 hour 53 minute listen can pack as much punch as 13hour book.
Definately well worth a listen

Beautiful!

Olivia's life shatters as the love of her life dies too soon of an incurable cancer. Before his death, he leaves her videos challenging her to continue on with her life. Promising her another video if she meets his requests. She doesn't want to at first, but she does it for him. For all he'd done for her. She eventually finds his point that life goes on. Even if she doesn't want it to.

I adored this book far more than I thought I would. I can't say I got super emotional as I have with other books similar to this. But I totally adored this book. I adored the message behind it. It was beautiful and touching. Most importantly, it was realistic. It really drives home an important message. No matter how dark life gets, it does go on. You may be left with scars, but you will find new beginnings.

The only issue I have with this book at all is that it just wasn't long enough. I wanted to keep reading this book. I also found out after starting this book that it was the third in a series! I can honestly say it is a stand-alone novel. But that's not how my brain works! I now need to get my hands on the first two books and binge read them like I did this one!

I absolutely adored this book. I listened to the whole thing in one sitting. This is not the first book that I've listened to that was narrated by Sarah Puckett! She is one great narrator! She can bring life to any book! Not that this book needed much of that! But still! I fully recommend the book and the narrator!

Wow

Just wow. What a story. I wanted more, I didn’t want the story to end. Listening to this book brought forth just about every emotion. It was such a roller coaster of feelings as you navigate through Olivia and Silas. And Sarah Puckett just brings it home, as always. Fantastic listen, now I’m gonna go get the first two.

Life Goes On

This book will bring out all the emotions from the very beginning! Olivia goes through a tragedy that no woman would ever go through without tremendous pain. The strength she has with the help of her closest friends and husband she finds herself on the path of healing. This book reminds me somewhat of PS I Love you but this books is definitely a story of its own. This is a must read for anyone who loves emotional reads with a fantastic ever after.
Narration what’s phenomenal!
Sarah brings out all the emotions more than if you were just reading. You need to get this book!

Holy Moly life really does go on

I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

This book just pulls out your heart and you think "how can things get better for poor Olivia" but it goes to show with amazing friends you can get through anything. I loved that Olivia went traveling and tried her best to do things she needed to heal.
I was told this was a sad story and I would cry so I thought not me no way well how wrong was I? (very) so much in this story had me blubbing like a baby.

I adore Kelly Moore's story telling and this was no exception she just gets it so spot on. I need to listen to more I can't wait for Gypsy to come out.

Sarah Puckett I could listen to her all day her voice is Hypnotic. She just draws you into the story and you can feel all the pain and Heartache she is perfect for the part.

An outstanding story.x

Heartache and Love but Life does go on

WOW, What can I say about this story. Life does go on as Silas stated. This story is full of heartache, love, and second chances at love. A beautiful story. This story broke me. I read the book prior and to listening. I cried so many tears that I had to take stock out in tissues. This story tells us of Silas and Liv. They met on a travel adventure and were married for a number of years before Silas became ill.Silas sends Liv on an adventure to find herself after he passes away. He wants her to live. As the title states Life Goes On. She relies on her friends and neighbors to help her.
Sarah Puckett did an amazing job on the narration. She brought the book to life. She brought out more emotions from me that I didn't know I had just from reading the book.She nailed the character voices beautifully. I had to double check to see if there was a male narrator as it was done so well.
I highly recommend this book whether you read it or listen to it. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would.

Gwhahhh!!!!! This book....

This book was like a roller coaster ride to my emotions. It was a fantastic story that hit a little close to home for me and gave my tear ducts a workout. It was sad yet still a sweet tale. I loved the characters! I laughed out loud more than once!

The narration was fantastic! Sarah never fails to give a stellar performance! She is so talented at always having very distinct voices. Her male narration voice is so smooth and perfect. It is always a treat.

Overall- Great book! Fantastic read!

Grab a tissue

This was so heartbreakingly good, very PS, I Love You 😍 I loved it.

Great storyline
Wonderful characters descriptions
No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings and good dialogues
Lots of feelings
I think I cried ten times
Beautiful and steamy love scenes
Emotional moments that spoke so strongly to my heart.

Narrator is doing a superb job of getting the feelings in the book through and I forget there’s no male narrator. Clear pronunciation and passionate reading

While Life Goes On I have lost my heart

I found Sarah Puckett to be such an incredible narrator of this story and her depth to the characters had me living right there in the moment with the characters. The different points of view were very easy to follow and a very enjoyable listen.

This story is full of the feels and left me sobbing and in tears at many points yet somehow I have a full heart. Olivia is one of the strongest characters I have read and her foresight given her circumstances I wonder how she can be so selfless. Nick, her husband, is definitely the stuff books are made of. So incredibly strong and supportive and just trying to get through. Julia is such a sweet nanny who has been dealt a short hand but her growth and development through the story is inspiriting. THe author did an amazing job with humor given the difficult circumstances and I loved the shenanigans between Olivia and her bestie. Truly the dynamics of all the characters throughout the story made everything so real and easy to relate to.

This truly is an epic love story that took me on the full range of emotions and still left my heart full and full of hope in true unconditional love.

anguish...

This story follows the life of Olivia and everything that it throws at her.
She loses her husband so young she is devastated. You can hear the anguish is the narrator's voice. She gives you the gut wretching pain the character feels.
While she does the voice well some times it's hard to tell who is talking between her and her best friend.
All in all it's a nice storyline and good characters.

Heartfelt & Romantic!!

This story was beautifully written. When your life changes drastically and you don’t know how to cope, this would be the perfect love story in which to learn on how to deal with it.
It’s really quite genius actually.
The love between these two people is proof that life, does in fact, go on.
The narration was amazing, and had me near tears in much of the story.
I would recommend this book.

Grab a tissue and settle in for the ride!

4/5 Stars.

Talk about a heartbreaking love story! I absolutely adored Olivia in this read and felt such strong compassion and empathy for her and her situation. The connection she had with Silas was something only soul mates experience. Their love and partnership was so touching! My heart shattered with the loss of Silas and the shell of a wife he left behind.

The way he chose to be a part of her life, after his passing, was not only thoughtful and sweet but also helped Olivia heal in ways she never thought she could. The scavenger hunt he sent her on made for an adventurous and thrilling story line.

I enjoyed Noah and Charlie so much in this book! Their friendship and love for both Silas and Olivia was unwavering and helped hold the story together.

What I didn’t love about the book was the ending. The way Olivia fell for Clay so quickly after meeting and how their relationship was rushed with a completely unrealistic timeline compared to how her grief spanned the story. It just left me feeling like the author rushed to wrap up the book and threw a happy ending together last minute.

Overall I thought this book had all of the key elements you desire in a romance read. There were super hot sex scenes, a deep connection with someone that you could only dream of experiencing, the hilarious best friend / support system, a little drama and suspense and a whole lot of love. This was my first book from this author and I would definitely check out other works in the future.

The narration by Sarah Puckett was top notch and she really brought the story to life!

Emotional Journey!

This is the third book in the Epic Love Stories. This is a standalone story in the Series. This story remembers me P.S. I Love You. This is a beautiful story, and an emotional journey. Olivia's story is heartbreaking, and heartwarming afterward. I love how Silas helps her to accept that life goes on. I also love how Olivia's friends are there for her. The ending is hopeful. Sarah Puckett did an amazing job with the narration. #AudiobookObsession

Heart warming story

Heart warming story that was similar to the movie PS I Love You. Don’t know if I could handle notes, videos or letters from a loved one who has passed. I’m a cancer survivor and I must admit that I had thought about doing something similar but I thankfully am still here.

Sarah Puckett, you are getting better and better every time I hear you. It’s amazing and I love your ability to play all roles.

It’s a solid story but it turned out a wee bit similar to the movie I mentioned above so therefore 4 and a half stars for me.
