Dear Emily (Trudy Stiles)

Adoption. Is it a choice you could make? 

For yourself? 

For your unborn child?

Two women. Carly and Tabitha. They each have suffered life-altering events that have left them both traumatically damaged.

Carly Sloan’s life was perfect until her security and innocence was torn from her. The vast repercussions from these events threaten to destroy her stability and her chances for a happily ever after. Kyle Finnegan comes into Carly’s life at the height of her turmoil. Can he help her find what she desires most?
Tabitha Fletcher has constantly suffered from a very young age. She has been hiding from her past, which was full of sadness, loss and abuse. She has been so brutally damaged that she has very little hope for redemption. The revolving door of men only leads her deeper into misery. 

What circumstance brings these two women together and can they help each other heal? And will they each find what they need? 



I told you guys I was going to binge read Trudy’s books after I blogged Epic Sins. And here I am, on the second book now. DEAR TRUDY. Your writing completes me and engulfs me. Your heart is amazing. So if you’re out there reading this: Thank you.

Dear Emily is about two women and how their lives cross each other and how everything changes for them. In this book I was SO engrossed in the way both Carly and Tabitha’s past and present POV’s took me through this book. It was great. Loved it.


The emotions in this book were raw, real, and intense. It provoked so many feelings from me. But this story was about so much more than the trials and tribulations of the adoption processes that most people don’t know about. It was about life’s realities: the good and the bad and the ugly, the highs and lows, the dark and the light. It was a story of friendship, survival, loss, hope, and strength. But most of all, it was about love.


Trudy Stiles has created an exceptional piece of work portraying a story of love, loss, heartbreak and hope. The emotional roller coaster ride that you take while reading Dear Emily will rip you apart and put you back together again and I couldn’t have loved it more.

*please be advised that there is one hell of a cliff hanger at the end of this book. Like WOAH
