5 Yearning Stars

I was given this book for my honest review

Fortuitous the meaning is happening by chance. As we go through our lives most of us have come to learn that going down within the path of life some of us think our paths are laid before us by a much stronger force that is beyond our control. As we also see that each of us as individuals decides which fork in our paths we such take. The fork in our path of life is a definite meaning of the word we seek here. A mishap by us lost at some po

Overall Rating I give this book 5 brilliant stars. WOW!!! This book was amazing! I thought it was very interesting and I LOVED the characters. The beginning of the book was intense and I was gasping. Charlie saves Emma’s life and what does he do? He just walks away. My heart broke for Emma. She moves to New York to start her life. Something tragic happens and she has to move back home. What happens when she is back at home? The author does a fantastic job pulling me into the story

This book is a tender accounting of innocent love that was lost, but never forgotten, and finally found again.

Charlie and Emma are high school sweethearts. Both characters are facing monumental decisions regarding their futures, when tragedy strikes. Charlie is forced to make the greatest sacrifice in the aftermath of this event. Emma is left to deal with the fall-out of his actions, feeling betrayed and abandoned.

We find Emma eight years later with a prestigious job, but still clinging precario

Charlie is a high school dropout who works in his uncles auto shop. He grew up in a trailer park and has had to take care of his mother. To say he doesn't think highly of himself is an understatement. Charlie's girlfriend is Emma and she couldn't be more opposite. She was top of her class and could be or do anything. But she chose to stay in her small town and be with Charlie. That is until he and her family persuaded her to apply for college. The day she received her acceptance letter, a signif ...more

4 Stars!

This is the debut of Lizzy Roberts and I have to say that I really enjoyed it.

Emma & Charlie were a couple in high school, after graduation she stayed in Glen Springs to work for a law office. Charlie didn’t finish high school, he worked for his uncle as a mechanic, to support his ill mother.

Charlie knew that he cannot offer Emma the life she deserves and when she applied for Harvard Law School (and got in) he decided to let her go, so she can live the life she deserved and not be ho

I love discovering new authors. Lizzy created a world filled with heartache, longing and ultimately love! I loved this story of new, young love. Charlie and Emma were perfect young lovers torn apart for silly reasons. I won't go into more because I don't want to give away any of this beautiful story. I felt as though I got lost in this story as I was reading it. Lizzy's characters we created in a way that you felt as though you know them really well and love being a part of their lives. She has ...more

3,5stars

Book is about second chance of love. We meet young Charlie and Emma at the beginning of the book. Charlie makes the hardest decision of his life and leaves his true love so she can become successful in her life. After long years they meet again.
Story is full of surprise. Book is well-written. Both characters interesting and well develop.
I missed the interaction Emma and Charlie through the story. Charlie appears only in the last

What a beautiful and heartfelt story. Steeling My Haart follows Emma after she had her heart broken and works to find herself.

Emma's life is saved on one fateful night when tragedy and devastation strikes her home town. Her saving grace was her boyfriend and love of her life Charlie, but after a magical night she wakes up to find Charlie gone. Eight years later, Emma is working on moving forward with her life and making a name for herself, never expecting to see Charlie again.

Such a great story. This is one of those books that has you hooked from the start and I struggled to put it down. The characters were very likeable and the storyline was different and intriguing. I found myself trying to work things out when a few twists were thrown in. The ending...wow! I had a feeling things weren't as they seem but my goodness me that was epic!
There was a lot of spelling mistakes, even simple ones like form instead of from, he instead of she, asleep instead of sleep. A lot of

I wanted to so badly love this book because it involved my home state of Oklahoma. On some levels, the book was accurate as to life here with tornadoes and just how beautiful it can be if you get past the misconception that we still travel by covered wagons. Then the book would do a 180 and the characters would use words not commonly used here, let alone the U.S. The storyline of lily and Gary I kinda saw coming so I'm curious as to where that is going to go. I'm happy the outcome and both Charl ...more
