Fallen Billow should be in college like most of her friends, but instead she’s raising her brother and working as a housekeeper at a vintage local hotel. It’s back-breaking work, but not nearly as challenging as fending off unwanted advances from the hotel’s owner.

Thomas McHugh is fighting for our country, across the globe and decades before Fallen Billow was even born. So there’s no way they’re soul mates. There’s no way he can be desperate to see her, hold her, kiss her. Except there is.

Is it a dream when he inks his name on her skin? Is it a delusion when she puts her hands on his face and says she loves him? Nothing has ever felt more real.

Fate has etched paths for Thomas and Fallen that even time cannot touch. A Purple Heart proclaims Thomas’ valor and bravery. And his death. But Fallen dares to dream of the impossible. She wants Thomas to stay. Just stay.

A tribute to all who have served our country, this novel honors the impossible beauty of love and the endless power of hope. Come open your heart and celebrate the many facets of bravery with Fallen and Thomas.




Debra Anastasia has created a website for Thomas McHugh - the veteran the book is in honor of. (It is recommended readers look at this website after reading the book)

Excerpt

“I bet you were adorable.” He put his knuckle under her chin and encouraged her to lift her head. She rolled back over and settled against his shoulder.

“I don’t want to be adorable. I want to be impossible.”

“How do you mean?” He kissed her forehead.

“I want to be impossible for you to forget, impossible for you to keep your hands off of.” She leaned up for a kiss.

“You’re my impossible then. Have no fear.” He tenderly reminded her he was her impossible, too, with his lips.

She put her hand against his stomach and snuggled in. “This is my spot. Right here. With you—it’s home.”

He swallowed before talking to the ceiling. “My heart was like a fist. Where I am? It’s not a place you plan to survive. I’ve been there for years, and it’s not about skill; it’s not even about luck. You get strapped into a machine, and fate’s driving. You can’t get out even if you want to. So you submit to it. You harden your soul. You get ready to die.”

He shifted, rolling on top of her. She sighed in contentment. Being beneath him made her feel safe and secure.

He kissed her lips, then the tip of her nose, before continuing. “But with you, it’s like my heart’s opening up, and I’m terrified to feel, after all this time. Yet I don’t have a choice. No matter where I am, I draw your face whenever I get a scrap of paper.”

He laughed a little. “We found a puppy, and I named it Fallen, just so I could say your name over and over. The guys think I’m crazy—such a strange name for a dog. But I don’t care. I’m gasping for you every moment I’m awake. And I’m making choices to keep me alive through the week.”

His eyes searched hers. “What if I’m not as tough as I was in the beginning? God, I hope no one is affected by my distraction with this. But in the end there’s you. Only you. Do what you have to to get back to me when you’re awake. You have to. I need you more than air, more than life right now. The softness of you, the tenderness in your eyes when you see me. I’m trying to force fate to throw me in your direction. To hurl me at you somehow. I don’t know if it will work. But I’m praying for it.”

Fallen touched his face, then his neck. “I will do everything I can to find you.”




Review

I didn't cry when I read this book, I thought I was going to, this is the exactly the type of book that will make me cry, however I was too busy being in awe of this book to cry over it. 

Debra Anastasia has a talent that is getting harder and harder to find the more that I read. Her writing has a simplicity to it that I can appreciate, especially when the subject matter in the book is as complex as  For All The Evers.  

There's a beauty in the writing of this book, in the content of this book. It's difficult to find a pure sweet romance, especially one that crosses the border between simple romance and paranormal. Both the readers and the characters don't know what happens exactly when the seemingly impossible brings Thomas and Fallen together.  

The idea of soul mates finding each other and being meant to be together has been a concept in romance books for a long time, but none of the other stories were as beautiful as the one of Thomas and Fallen.   

Every time Fallen had t deal with her real life, I hurt for her, at such a long age she had so much responsibility.  When she finds Thomas I'm so happy for her, she needs that type of good. 

Thomas is in his own hell, fighting a war decades before Fallen's time, she's an angel in an otherwise dreary place. 

I thought, with the prologue and the reality, and the emotion that I found in the love between these characters I would shed more than a tear or two. However, I found that beauty doesn't always have to come with tears, I was able to enjoy For All The Evers, because I knew what Fallen knew I knew it would have to come to an end, but I also new that it would stay with me forever. 

I read t find these types of gems, For A The Evers is a simple book that allws you to take a step back and remember what's important. Love can come at any time, in the most unlikely way, and that while it might not last forever, it can never really leave you. 

Debra Anastasia did a wonderful job with this book, all in the name of someone she loved.
