Remember us...when I can't.
Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.
A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.
Jim Whelan is on autopilot.
A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.
Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.
When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.
Just when I think Emma Scott can’t surprise me with another romance as emotional as her last she goes and writes A Five-Minute Life. This story was so incredibly touching, uplifting and heartfelt, I dare any reader to get through it with a dry eye.
Emma Scott delivers a unique and memorable story made even more powerful through her emotive prose. Thea and Jimmy’s romance plays like your favorite movie, the one you can’t ever turn off no matter how many times you’ve seen it before. The story takes a hold of you, making little else more important than discovering what would come next. It was emotionally suspenseful and I loved every minute of it.
A Five-Minute Life is a top read for me this year. Highly recommend.
