*** Withering Hope is the story of a man who desperately needs forgiveness and the woman who brings him hope. It is a story in which hope births wings and blooms into a love that is as beautiful and intense as it is FORBIDDEN. ***
Aimee’s wedding is supposed to turn out perfect. Her dress, her fiancé and the location—the idyllic holiday ranch in Brazil—are perfect.
But all Aimee’s plans come crashing down when the private jet that’s taking her from the U.S. to the ranch—where her fiancé awaits her—defects mid-flight and the pilot is forced to perform an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.
With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is Aimee and Tristan’s—the pilot—only hope. A slim one that slowly withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, diseases. Beasts.
As Aimee and Tristan fight to find ways to survive, they grow closer. Together they discover that facing old, inner agonies carved by painful pasts takes just as much courage, if not even more, than facing the rainforest.
Despite her devotion to her fiancé, Aimee can’t hide her feelings for Tristan—the man for whom she’s slowly becoming everything. You can hide many things in the rainforest. But not lies. Or love.
Withering Hope is the story of a man who desperately needs forgiveness and the woman who brings him hope. It is a story in which hope births wings and blooms into a love that is as beautiful and intense as it is forbidden.
There is nothing better than finding a beautifully written novel that deeply affects you on a personal level and leaves you completely captivated. Withering Hope by Layla Hagen is an EPIC, one-of-a-kind, knock-your-socks-off love story. If you want to be totally wrapped up in a powerful romance, here you go!
Aimee is a heroine I connected with right away because she is genuine, strong, and positive. She is living the life she always wanted and is about to marry the man she has spent years loving. Aimee’s life takes a nosedive (literally) when the private plane she is on crashes in the Amazon Rainforest. This happens almost immediately in the story so you don’t have to wait long for the intensity to crank up. Now Aimee must do anything it takes to survive with very little supplies, the hope of being rescued, and her only companion – the pilot.
Tristan is a man you all will want to meet. He is powerful and fierce yet compassionate and friendly. Tristan has a very dark side with plenty of memories that haunt him. His nightmares have no cure until an unexpected realization occurs one night. Regardless of the past, Tristan steps into the hero role effortlessly to ensure Aimee and him make it out of this disaster alive. Everything he does, it is with Aimee’s comfort and happiness in mind. Tristan is so dreamy!
The irreplaceable bond Aimee and Tristan form will last for eternity. They have new threats daily that require them to constantly rely on one another. They battle hunger, illness, wild beasts, and nature in while trying not to lose hope that they will be rescued. I cannot accurately describe how fantastic the connection between Aimee and Tristan is.
I was astounded by the descriptive details, glorious chemistry, and realistic danger that brought this story to life. Try to imagine being lost in the jungle with someone and how vital they become to your existence. I am still reeling from their sentimental tale! Aimee and Tristan share so many emotionally thoughtful treasures burried throughout the pages that you will not want to miss. This author is outstanding for what she created for this impeccable pair. You all really must experience this unique journey that is sure to cause a rare emotional reaction for anyone that reads it. Withering Hope is a story that will be stuck with me forever and is definitely a MUST READ!
