Book Description

Orphaned by her mother and brushed off by her dad, fifteen year old Silvia Cotton had lived a lonely life. That is until 1985 when her father moved the family from the Highlands of Scotland to the Midlands of Wales. It is there she was enrolled in Bennington, a private boarding school, met the charming and rebellious Dickinson twins, Oliver and Alexander, and her regrettable life was changed forever.

Locked into a fierce friendship with Alexander and lost to a whirlwind romance with Oliver, Silvia found herself torn away from everything she thought she knew. Married too soon, she moved with Oliver to a rustic cabin deep in a Welsh wood and embarked upon a life she'd never planned for, surviving on hope she never knew existed and faith she never knew she had. She made her way through university and onto a career, only to surrender her ambition to raising her children and living a life that was strikingly "normal". But what is normal? Certainly not what ensued in the wood.

True love, faeries, friendship, loves lost and gained. Old magic, fate, doubt, strength and courage, Silvia's story could belong to anyone, but it is her own. Simple yet extraordinary, told in retrospect with wit and candor, Silvia recalls a life of joy and sorrow, laughter and tears. As she unravels the tangled web of her days, she reveals the secrets that exist in an ancient wood, how hearts given freely can become the stuff of magic, and how true happiness was never any further than her own back garden.

It isn’t often that I gush over books in a teenage sort of way, but since the very first chapter, I’ve been telling every woman I know about how much I enjoyed reading it. It has been a long while since I’ve felt so thoroughly connected to a set of characters as I have been with Just Silvia Cotton and the Dickinson brothers. After Forever Ends traces the love story of two souls who share life’s journey in a way that is so authentic and powerful that it left me in tears and in stitches, often simultaneously throughout the book. There were no climatic, edge-of-your-seat sort of moments, but instead the author carefully wove the beautiful tapestry of Silvia’s life with such grace and purpose that I can almost imagine that she is real. I grew as she grew. I felt what she felt. I learned about the moving and sometimes painful truths that only time can teach as she experienced them. There were so many carefully written segments and one of my favorite came toward the end of the novel as Silvia began the process of reflecting on her life, something that each of us will do in our own time. “I could not have asked for better friends or a better life, but there’s a nasty trick about living. It happens at its own pace and in its own way and you never, never know what’s coming next. So you keep running and running to keep up with it and most people get tired. Others don’t get tired. They just get overtaken by the road… And before I knew it, all of us were old.” I know that I will still be thinking about this book for a long time to come. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys great literature and a beautiful love story.

Melodie Ramone has written an epic love story. Silvia Cotton has battled with love from a very young age; the need for love and acceptance becomes her driving force. Orphaned by her mother while still a toddler, she must deal with her father’s inability to offer her the affection she so needs. Smart and fiery, she focuses on the only way she knows to gain the acceptance and recognition she so craves by throwing herself heart and soul in becoming a top-notch student. Then one day, a fellow student, Oliver, ‘hits her in the head with a ball’ and her destiny is forever changed. After Forever Ends, stands apart from the typical romance story—it affirms the power of love that sustains you even after death has claimed a loved one—it depicts love as “a strong magic...that comes from deep within the source of all creation.” A wonderful journey into the spiritual side of love with characters that will remain with you long after the author has finished her story.
