The Wake Up by Catherine Ryan Hyde
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Readers, you are in for a treat! Catherine Ryan Hyde’s newest book, The Wake Up, will give you a serious case of the “feels.” Main character, Aiden, has found himself in a strange place in life, where his newfound empathy makes it impossible for him to continue raising cattle for slaughter. He is also in a new relationship, and his love interest has two children, one of whom comes with many emotional issues. Aiden finds himself remembering pieces of his own past that were long forgotten. He embarks on a journey of self-discovery and learning how to trust and empower a child many would consider beyond help. The author’s rich descriptions allow the reader to feel the emotions of the characters and leave one discovering there is hope in difficult circumstances. This was my first book by Catherine Ryan Hyde, and I will be sure to read her others as this one has made me a true fan!
