Then She Roars by Vanessa Evetts is a wonderful story that explores emotions of pain and joy, of hope and despair. Avery Bishop has an enviable job, a great body, and a very good life. That is until a routine checkup offers disturbing revelations: She has cancer! It is a bomb that is about to tear her life apart. The prospects of survival are slim and the treatment plan available for her can only keep her alive. But meeting Harry presents a new dilemma. He is the perfect man, the dream man, and he is everything she’s ever wanted in a man. Is it too late for her to love? What can she get with four days of freedom and can she find hope in following her heart’s deepest longing? When everything seems bleak and hopeless, it is then that Avery roars, and her life takes on a new meaning as she lives it, every moment of it, to the fullest.

I was pulled in by the title and I liked the blurb, but I wasn’t expecting so much entertainment. Then She Roars is real and filled with a message of hope. The writing is impeccable and insightful and Vanessa Evetts allows readers to see life from the perspective of someone facing love and death. There is no way a reader with a heart can’t love the characters and the support that Avery gets when she learns about her situation. I also enjoyed how the thought that illness isn’t the end of life is communicated. There are some experiences we live just once, and the prospect of finding the one thing one has always wanted when one knows that death looms ahead is unnerving. The author captures the emotions of the protagonist with such grace, skill, and vividness that I found myself feeling for her. Then She Roars is a page-turner, an engrossing read that will resonate in the hearts of many readers.
