Tess struggles with the news of Beau’s death and tries to put her life back together. Alone and dealing with a pregnancy that only reminds her of what she has lost, Tess is adrift in a world of failed plans and fallen expectations. When a new client appears offering more than just a new project, Tess must confront the circumstances of her life head on.
Meanwhile, two Iraqi women who are fleeing honor killings find Beau barely alive in the middle of the desert, his body ravaged by the crash. Suha, a doctor, and Samira, a widow and mother of three young children, nurse him back to health in a makeshift tent. Beau bonds with the women and children, and together, with the help of an underground organization, they continue their dangerous escape.
What happens next is a test of loyalties, strength, and love.
Come Back to Me is the latest book by Melissa Foster. Come Back to me is a beautifully written and heart wrenching tale. It is really two stories in one. First, Tess is waiting for her husband to return from assignment and finds out she is pregnant. While trying to cope with how this will change their 5 year plan, she find out he has been killed. The struggle with how she comes to terms with not only her pregnancy, but putting her life back together was very realistic. I could really feel her internal struggles. The second story is of Beau and his struggle to get back to the woman he loves. The situation he finds himself in was written very well. Ms. Foster was able to realistically convey the horrors of war to the reader as well as the cruelty that some women encounter in the area.
Come Back to Me is a lot more intense than the last book I read by Ms. Foster. I have to admit that I enjoyed the book until the end. It wasn't the ending I would have liked to see and I'm not sure I walked away satisfied. Despite that, it is a compelling read and one I know fans will enjoy. I look forward to seeing what Ms. Foster has in store for us next!
