This story picks up about 2 months after Hearts in Darkness leaves off. It details the difficulties that Caden and Makenna have dealing with their relationship outside the confines of the elevator. It also takes a frank and detailed look at clinical depression and PTSD and how those conditions can affect the people surrounding the patient. Everything about this story felt realistic, and I really admired Makenna for standing by Caden, because it isn't easy to love someone with a mental illness. Leaving them in their personal hells is taking the easy way out. This book had me in tears by the end of it! It was a very engaging story!
