This Moment is a book that stays with you, in your mind and in your heart, long after you finish reading it. It is a touching novel that hit the very core of me. Judith Natelli McLaughlin has written this in the point of view of Ryan McGuire. I always find it interesting to see how an author writes a novel in the voice of the opposite sex. In this instance, Judith has done an incredible job.
Ryan has fallen in love with Lydia and throughout the first half of the book, we are invited along for the journey of their relationship. It is a touching, honest look at love. I refuse to give you any spoilers because I want you to read this for yourself. Just be prepared, I sobbed during the second half of this novel like an infant with an earache.
This Moment is more than just a love story. It is a story of faith and finding your own. What is it that you believe to be true? What is your faith in? Do you have faith in yourself? Do you live life in the moment or do you just breeze right through them?
I highly recommend this book for individuals and book club groups alike. It is a great read and I hope that it stays with you the way that it is staying with me.
