Product description

Product 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.

this book came to me with a purpose, who knew that books 'found' us and not the other way around. this story feels like my very own 'secret garden'. it stumbled upon me when I needed it most. Ms Ramone will never truly know the gift this book, her words, was to me. I healed through every page and felt the author wrote her novel with my soul in mind; i am so blessed to have read this book, the magic of the story was healing for me at a time of grear personal loss. Bless you Ms Ramone, bless you!

In her debut novel, Melodie Ramone reaches out to readers and invites them to a lovely place in her heart. Her passion as a writer is reflected in this uplifting tale that begins with teenagers Sylvia, Oliver, and Alexander, and stretches into the golden years. The experiences that come with raising a family and having lifelong friendships run the gamut of emotions in the story, and in more than one instance, I found myself thinking, “I can relate to that!” Melodie Ramone’s writing style is candid, her characters are endearing, and her storyline is exceptional. After Forever Ends will stay with me for a long time. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be taken to a special place.

This was one of those stories that come into your life for a short time, but leave a profound effect on your soul.

Melodie Ramone's AFTER FOREVER ENDS traces the lives of four young people from their early days at Benington, a private school, where they fight for love and honour. It is about their rites of passage to university, marriage and parenthood. The story then accelerates, much as life seems to, and takes us to some extraordinarily moving chapters as the quartet move into old age. It is without doubt the most emotionally evocative book I have read in many a year, possibly ever.

I grew to love Silvia and her sister, Lucy, and the twins they marry, Oliver and Alexander. Their lives felt real to me and came to matter to me, as did those of their children and friends.

The story is almost a model for a good life lived well and to the full. Most of us will recognise aspects of our own lives in AFTER FOREVER ENDS. Some of us may learn essential insights from the story. It may help us to make sense of our own unsolved issues.

There is one pivotal scene about two thirds of the way through the book when Silvia and Lucy throw a napkin back and forth at each other during a row, as Lucy shows Silvia just how things were regarding their father, with whom Silvia has had a difficult relationship. I found this profoundly moving as things were not easy between myself and my own father. I am sure others with find things in this road map for a life lived well that may have meaning for their lives.

The story and the characters in it are V for Vigorous. "Nothing bothers me more in this world than a person who behaves as a sheep and not as a dragon", says the elderly Sil in the absorbing first chapter.

The first half of this book and the last few chapters were amazing. It dragged a bit in the third quarter but still worth reading. I'm a bit confused about the timeline in which the story took place and found that distracting. Definitely a book that people of all ages could relate to.
