The writing deserves 5 stars but I am waiting this on my feeling to it. This was a hard book to read, and as a mother, wife, daughter and friend I think it hit me harder, okay it walloped me upside the heart. I am not a fan of emotional reads, so this book was out of my comfort zone in more ways than one. It deals with the loss of love, children, time and the long road to recovery. It was very realistic, very well done and I'm glad I read it but I would not read it again so 4 stars, okay 4.4 ...more

What originally drew me to this book was the blurb and the cover wasn’t all that bad too. If you’re looking for a great, well constructed storyline then go pick this book up. I finished this book in one day. This is one of those page turning books that I couldn’t stop reading.

Candice and Jason Woodruff had everything going for them: a strong marriage, the family they’d dreamed of, and successful businesses.

"I woke up one day and everything I knew has changed, not just changed, it had disappeared into a clouded either of tangled thoughts and missing pieces. My life had become a puzzle. Unfortunately, all of the pieces weren't there to put the puzzle back together."

Confusion and disorientation greets Candice when she awakes in a hospital bed. She lost her memory and the last 17 years of her life. She doesn't remember that she has a husband or that she has 4 kids.

Through Infinity by Libby Austin is a 2014 Infinity and Beyond publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is an awesome story about family, faith and the ultimate power of love.

In the blink of an eye the solid seventeen year marriage between Jason and Candace was literally wiped clean. Gone, vanished, as though it never happened... at least that's the way it was for Candace, who suffered a serious life threatening health issue and in the process

***ARC copy received in advance for honest review***

One day life is just as it should be; spending time with family doing the things you love. But waking up in the hospital unsure of why you are there with people that you don’t even recognize, changes everything.

Candice knows who she is but as a 23 college student enjoying life. Thinking her parents look a little different than she last remembered. Only to find out “the man” is Jason

****I had the pleasure of receiving this ARC for an honest review. ****

When I read the the author's note to the reader, I have to admit I was a little apprehensive on continuing with this novel because her first warning before reading was that this book may not be something I'm interested in because I'm a huge fan of books with hot athletes and lots of hot sex. However, I have to admit, this was a pleasant change in what I was use to reading and turned out to be a beautiful book about family,

** I received this book as an ARC for an honest review**

I have to be honest here, I struggled with my review. This wasn't because Through Infinity wasn't a good book but because I'm so used to a book with hot steamy sex and a storyline that might throw in a huge secret that gives the husband and wife an additional challenge to overcome. As Libby Austin says in her Dear Reader notes, if you are looking for that type of story this isn't it.

Since we've read the synopsis a few times already I will

I was given an ARC for an honest review of Through Infinity. The author’s first book and I have to say Libby, you nailed it. Beautifully written and from beginning to the end, I was so wrapped up in this story.

Candice wakes up in the hospital not remembering the past 18 years of her life including the love of her life, Jason and their four children. Her only memory is her parents, believing she’s 23 and still in college.

You can’t help but fall in love with Jason and the kids. Talk about melt

I Love You Through INFINITY and BEYOND. .. Amazing,

I don't know where to start, this Author flipped my world in a great way. I TOTALLY fell in love with the whole family. This story is like no other I have read. Candice wakes up in a Hospital, not knowing what happen but also not a memory of the past 18 year of her life, also any memories with the One True Love of her life Jason and their 4 amazing kids. To say everything will go back to normal is an understatement. Candice does everything she
A well written and thoughtfull story! I loved the way the struggles, thoughts, feelings, fears are described of each character (child, husband, wife). I can't even imagine being in such a situation and each of them have my full respect for how they were fighting and dealing with the circumstances. Mostly I loved Jason who never lost faith in their love and marriage!

Review Copy from the Publisher

Amnesia is a scenario scheme regularly used in Romance with more or less success, but I really like how it’s handled in Through Infinity. As asked here by the author, our past being the base of the person we are, who are we if we have forgotten half of our life?

When I read the synopsis of this novel, I thought about the movie The Vow with Rachel McAdams. Indeed, when Candice wakes up in the hospital after

Looking at it in hindsight, I figure I should have just skipped the author’s note. Her defensiveness and repeated comments about what the book was and was not definitely put me off quite a lot. I do not normally feel this way when I read these author notes, but I found this one so defensive with the author trying time and again, in such a short space, to convince me to read her book (I opened it already—why on earth do you think I opened it if I was not going to at least read some of it?).

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

This was truly an amazing story that would stay with you long after the book has ended. The author's ability to draw you into Candice's life was simply beautiful. Through her writing you could connect with this woman and experience her "adventure" of discovering who she was.
Through her lens you learned more about Candy, Jason and their four children, as well as her support system. Each person's role was vitally important to the whole of

I find amnesia both fascinating and hard to read about. It's extremely difficult to find out who we are and then realize we have to start all over again when we can't remember. It feels like sort of a blessing and a curse. I felt really bad for Candice "Candy", Jason, and their family at having to figure out their relationships all over again.

The story flows at a rapid pace and I found it very hard to put down. I loved how supportive Jason and Candy's families were of this difficult time for

Well to be absolutely honest - I loved this book!! I have read it 4 times. This book will make you truly believe in soul mates. From the very beginning you knew that this book was about devotion, it was about finding and falling in love. It will absolutely make you cry and make you laugh. Libby Austin has done a great job in this book.

Why do I love it so much? I normally read hot and steamy and true to the authors words this book is not about steamy love scenes, its about

I don’t even know where to start with this review for this awesome book. All I want to do is, scream “go buy a copy of this great books, you will love it”
But I guess that really wouldn’t count as a review lol, so I will do my best to tell you what I thought of the book other than I LOVE IT.
I could never imagine waking up one day and the family I love are now strangers to me and the last 20 years are wiped form my memory.

I like to mix and match my books so I’ve something for whatever mood I’m in to read. this one sounded intriguing but its been sitting there looking at me for the past week, waiting for me to be in the right frame of mind. I find if I read something I’m not in the mood for I don’t enjoy it so well, and with review books it’s important not to let anything other than the book influence my views. well

Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

What would you do if you woke up one morning unable to remember the last twenty years of your life? How would you feel? And would you want to get your life back exactly the way it was, or would you make some changes? First of all, it is probably safe to say that most people, including me, would be incredibly scared, angry and, perhaps, feel rather lost and unable to wrap their heads around it.

My life began the day I died … Wait, let me rephrase, my life as I know it began five days after I died.

Candice Woodruff wakes up in a hospital with no memory of the previous seventeen years. The last thing she remembers is being 23, and now she’s 40, married with 4 children. She has no memory of of the people she lives with or works with. Disoriented, overwhelmed, she struggles to balance the person she thinks she is with the person she thinks she is supposed to be.

Through Infinity by Libby Austin is a book that will melt your heart. This was a story about unconditional love and learning to love again. All of this exquisitely told through dual points of view, and with heart felt emotions.

The only thing that makes each of us…”us” a very fragile thing called memories. The majority of us can recall where we were 5 weeks ago, what we had for lunch on Monday and even that cute girl with the long pony-tail back in 2nd grade..what’s her name.

Yet, what defines us if we don’t have memories?

This book is a love story about two people who are soul mates but it's also a love story about a family.

“When your past vanishes what happens to your future?”

I love books that stay with you after you've read them, little phrases that stick with you that the author has put down on paper, Through Infinity did that to me. Candice Woodruff is a mother of four from a southern town, who is still madly in love with her husband and her family. One day in a split second her entire life
