Loved the writing of this story, kept me wanting to read more. Have Kleenex handi, very emotional!!!
I had preordered this book, and while I received it the day it was released, I read some of the reviews & knew it was more than a “romance”, a book that would take its toll on the readers heart. Well, about 6 months later, I preordered the sequel & decided it was time to read this first book.
Needless to say, this book IS more than a romance. It focuses more on the girl he left behind than the soldier. It’s romantic, heartbreaking, funny, devastating & happy.
Now, I can’t wait for book 2.
This is another wonderful book by Marie Force!! Amazing!! You took me on a new journey, Thank you. Look forward to your next book, what ever series it may be.
This is an Emotional Rollercoaster for several characters in this Great Well Written Story. I love Marie’s Force’s style of writing. I can’t wait for the second book.
Just wonderful. Haven't cried so hard and long in a very long time .
This book was awesome. I really didn’t know how this was going to end. It was very heart warming and I am so glad to see another one coming to continue this. Also, all your books have been such good reads. You keep me going.
OMG ! Where do I start ! I usually don’t do reviews other than Star ratings but, I must let you all know what I think about this book that Marie Force has given us . It starts as a romantic military type book yet quickly turns into AVA and her journey through five years of hoping and wishing and feeling left behind mixed in with her undying love for John West. All the while starting over with the most amazing love she could ever imagine finding through her Sister’s Husband. I am a slow reader and reread several chapters to get deeper into the characters. I could not put it down. As one reviewer wrote, it was unputdownable. This is simply Marie’s best ever book.
Dragged on and on. Sorry
Five years gone is truly a masterpiece! I have never read anything like this. EPIC I all I can say. I was hoping that Ava didn’t take John back. I definitely would highly recommended this book. I laughed and cried. I’m looking forward to the next one. Brilliance!!!
A will written compelling story of loss and recovery by Marie Force. She displays a sensitivity while portraying each characters struggles to move forward from life altering crisis. A great read.
Big Marie Force fan in Phx
Another reason why Marie Force is one of my favorite authors. Five Years Gone is an absolute must read. Just make sure you have a box of tissues on hand. Can’t wait to read John’s story!
This book was so good, I read it in 1 day. Absolutely could not put it down! Can’t wait for the next one to find out what happens to Jack.
