Withering Hope by Layla Hagen 
Publication date: January 19th 2015
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Aimee’s wedding is supposed to turn out perfect. Her dress, her fiancé and the location—the idyllic holiday ranch in Brazil—are perfect.
But all Aimee’s plans come crashing down when the private jet that’s taking her from the U.S. to the ranch—where her fiancé awaits her—defects mid-flight and the pilot is forced to perform an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.
With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is Aimee and Tristan’s—the pilot—only hope. A slim one that slowly withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, diseases. Beasts.
As Aimee and Tristan fight to find ways to survive, they grow closer. Together they discover that facing old, inner agonies carved by painful pasts takes just as much courage, if not even more, than facing the rainforest.
Despite her devotion to her fiancé, Aimee can’t hide her feelings for Tristan—the man for whom she’s slowly becoming everything. You can hide many things in the rainforest. But not lies. Or love.
Withering Hope is the story of a man who desperately needs forgiveness and the woman who brings him hope. It is a story in which hope births wings and blooms into a love that is as beautiful and intense as it is forbidden.



What a great read! The story follows Aimee and Tristan, a bride-to-be, and the pilot that is supposed to be flying her to her fiance to get ready for their upcoming wedding. The unfortunate happens and the plane crashes in the middle of nowhere. With nowhere to go because the rainy season cannot allow them past a certain point on the island and no traces of help on the way, the two end up trying to make do for months on their own with hopes of being rescued.

However, time alone for Aimee and Tristan force themselves to get to know one another, to learn secrets, pasts, and that want you want in life might not be what you think it should be. They face challenges and difficulties trying to survive life on the island and in time find themselves growing closer.

This marvelous story is so much more than just a love story. It's a story of moving on, doing what isn't expected of you, and most of all hope. Ms. Hagen has managed to weave a story that many have tried to tell but haven't been able to do it perfectly, Ms. Hagen definitely has not only written the perfect story, but has managed to make it so much more.
