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

Book Review:

Withering Hope is an understatement! Imagine you’re on your way to meet you fiancé for your perfect wedding in the perfect location, with your perfect dress only to never arrive. Instead your plane crashes in the heart of the Amazon Rain Forest. To top it off no one can find you because the black box was destroyed and the pilot had to steer off course prior to the crash.  Hope, yeah I can see why it’s withering and I am not even done. They have a measly amount of food that will barely last the day, maybe 2 at most.  In addition, there is no water and most of the supplies were lost in the crash.

Tristan (Pilot) and Aimee fight to survive starvation and what lurks in the jungle.  Death knocks on their door more than once, will they make it? They quickly become a team working together to survive.  As weeks and months pass, their bond becomes stronger and stronger.  Has their bond become too strong?

The emotional turmoil this story brings, despair, longing, fear, dread, sadness, and lastly love, you will feel like you’re living it with them. This was an original story and a page turner from page one. It captivated me and I just needed to finish it to see what happened, so I read it in one night. How did it end, I can’t even!

Do yourself a favor and read it.
