This story was a moving and thoughtful journey between the life we know and what might lie beyond. And it is also a vision of how those two worlds can be intertwined with love, loss, hope and memories.

From the beginning, you follow the path of a surgeon (Jack) who spent his life repairing everyone else. An effort that he became so focused on in order to offset the things he could not repair. The burdens of lost loved ones, and the pain that hovered between Jack and his son, Travis. It was a chas

FALLON'S REVIEW

Jack Silver is suffering from ALS. He isn’t really sore about the fact that his life is about to end, because he lost his new-born daughter years ago, and after that he also lost his wife. And when it comes to his son, Travis, they don’t have a normal father and son relationship as long as both can remember.
But when Travis is confronted with his father’s disease, their relationship is destined to change. While Jack is in the land between the living and the dead he is trying to fin

There is much to be said about Tania Ramos' novel, "Be Still." It is a well thought out and well planned novel that actually weaves two interconnecting stories into one.

The book revolves around Jack Silver. A father, haunted by the memory of his wife who died somewhat mysteriously many years ago and his son Travis, who has held a long-time grudge against his father, blaming him for his mother's death. Add in the cute Dr. Chris Amity who has been like a daughter to Jack though has always been se

By far one of the best general fiction books I have read in a long time. Tania Ramos’ writing style is effortlessly fluid as she gently lulls you into an emotionally charged story that will tug at your heartstrings. The characters involved and the circumstances that surround them are given real thought, feeling and page time, which allows the book to move along at a perfect pace.

A truly beautiful story of love, regret and redemption that will have you hooked. You’ll be devastated on one page, th

Was apprehensive about picking up this book at first because of the unknown author. It was recommended by a friend so I decided to give it a try. It really was a touching book that I think everyone who has ever been affected by a loved one with a disability should read this book.
