It was sure hard to get anything done in my real life once I picked this book up I kept thinking one chapter and I willclean house get dressed turn off the light you name it It completely kept my attention The plot focuses on Jude a gay single woman who is in a coma as a result of falling off the cliff near her home How did that happen Who was Jude How does this accident impact her best friend her lawyer her nurse I was hooked immediately on the concept of Jude telling her tale while in a coma a very thought provoking way to narrate her side of the story It left me with lots of uestions and thoughts about people who are incapacitated at the end stages of life I was drawn in by the other characters as well even those I did not like Each of their back stories made them human real and sometimes scary The story unfolds in a most interesting way leaking the past into the present so you understand the context of what s going on I feel like I just stepped off a roller coaster my head is reeling I feel a little sick but I am dying to get back on the next ride

Aten to reveal everyone's deceptions even her own Bluff offers a sensitive look at essential uestions such as the value of human life the consciousness of those in a coma and the morality of terminating life support At the core is the story of a tragically misunderstood woman who finds peace acceptance understanding and even love on her deathbed. This book was interesting The thing I didn t like about it was that there was very little storyline Most of the book was background information on the characters some of which was unnecessary I thought For instance the secretary at Paul Williams law office Too much detail about her as she wasn t an important character at all I wish there had been a little action but I guess that is hard to do when your main character is in a permanent vegetative state I really did like the chapters that were written from Jude s perspective I could have used even of those Overall I thought it was worth the read I would have liked to know what happened after the ending but I think the author is planning to do a seuel

To the medical world I was a host body surviving only to bring a new life into the world And while I wanted to die than anything in the world I never wanted this No I never wanted to cease to exist This was the worst death of all”Jude Black lives in that in between twilight place teetering on death but clinging to life in order to bring her ba. I received a copy of this book from the author for purpose of honest review I was not compensated for this review and all conclusions are my own responsibility I m rather at a loss for words to accurately review this book for I m not entirely certain I ve discovered all of the ways it makes an impact It is a roller coaster ride from one peak in the revelations to the next climaxing with the impact of that last big climb slowly up until it crests and drops the bottom out from under you Each of the characters encountered are involved directly or indirectly with Jude and what seemed to be a sucking vortex of secrets deceptions and resentments Add in the rather inflexible edicts from the Pope and the Bishop contrasted with bioethical issues surrounding the sustenance of life without considering the uality of that life and that is just a taste of what this book brings to the reader Not by any stretch of the imagination is this book an easy read but it isn t meant to be Challenging your thoughts on life support living wills suicide secrets Papal omniscience and even application of edict and canonical law to the very real situations that people encounter this story has so many facets to focus on to provide new insight that it s a never ending series of important revelations and perspectives that deal with the horrifyingly possible potential that you too shall need to deal with an end of life decision for a loved one Of course the author has managed to wrap all of the issues into a well written tightly characterized and deeply moving story One that keeps you thinking long after you have put it down and wanting to go back and re read sections as your opinion on everything starts to change and wander The main character is named for St Jude the patron saint of lost causes although each character has their own lost cause they are fighting against some successfully but no less traumatic than others If you want a book that doesn t challenge ends with a happy ever after that you will put down and not feel it calling for you to finish it this is not the book for you Skillful writing combined with a plot guaranteed to make you think remember and even uestion you must have this book

    I LOVED this book If I could give it 10 stars I would It’s smart it’s meaty and it’s relevant Another reviewer characterized it as an “issues” story if it is then I’m an “issues” kind of reader; I like stories that make me think I also admire this book’s structure—Skomal had a lot to balance here and she did it with grace and panache and real feeling for her characters—I know she felt for them because she made me fe
