[Book Review + Giveaway] There Will Come a Time by Carrie Arcos

There Will Come a Time
Mark knows grief. Ever since the accident that killed his twin sister, Grace, the only time he feels at peace is when he visits the bridge on which she died. Comfort is fleeting, but it’s almost within reach when he’s standing on the wrong side of the suicide bars. Almost.

Grace’s best friend, Hanna, says she understands what he’s going through. But she doesn’t. She can’t. It’s not just the enormity of his loss. As her twin, Mark should have known Grace as well as he knows himself. Yet when he reads her journal, it’s as if he didn’t know her at all.

As a way to remember Grace, Hanna convinces Mark to complete Grace’s bucket list from her journal. Mark’s sadness, anger, and his growing feelings for Hannah threaten to overwhelm him. But Mark can’t back out. He made a promise to honor Grace—and it’s his one chance to set things right.

Before the book begins, we get caught up on the set up and background of the story. Mark and his twin sister Grace get in a car accident and unfortunately, Grace dies and Mark walks away with only few stitches. After all is done, Mark is an emotional wreck and cannot accept that his beloved sister is dead and he will never see her again. 


The story is all about trying to gain acceptance and understand that sometimes surviving does not mean that it's your fault. Painful, beautiful, and unbelievably amazing novel, I cried right with Mark. I think the most beautiful thing that I found in this novel is that Mark couldn't understand why everyone around him was grieving over his sister, because she was HIS twin, and noone else's. This was an amazing experience and I definitely recommend it.
