Matthew Grayken is young, successful, and dying, which is why he’s about to propose to a total stranger. He isn’t interested in love. He needs a caregiver, a companion, and someone to be his legal voice when he can no longer speak for himself.

Lonely, compassionate nurse Mikaela Compton is intrigued by Matt Grayken’s tender request, but when their friendly marriage turns into love, she rejects the inevitability of Matt’s death and prays for a miracle instead.

Mikaela succeeds in reigniting Matt’s will to fight, but his body is losing the battle and he is suffering. She recognizes that her urgent need to save Matt has caused her to betray the fundamental promise she made him—to help him die peaceably.

Matt needs a miracle, and Mikaela believes one is attainable, but she will need to leave him at the hour of his greatest need. She’s about to learn that while love sometimes draws you close, it sometimes requires you to go out on a limb.

Rating: Moderate. Mild substance use; mild kissing; non-detailed fade-out sensuality; mild (nonsexual) violence or horror.

One response to “Love on a Limb by Laurie Lewis

  1. 4 Stars!

    Fans of books by Jack Weyland and Lurlene McDaniel will adore this beautiful story of miracles, love, God, and never giving up. When young and successful Matt realizes his health is going downhill, he decides he doesn’t want to be alone through it. So he hatches the plan to propose to Mikaela, a nurse who is technically a stranger. “The greatest pain isn’t your own, but that which comes from watching someone you love suffer.”

    I couldn’t believe how much this story touched me. A book hasn’t affected me this strongly since I went through my phase of daily crying along with Lurlene McDaniel books back in high school. Love on a Limb is filled with love, hope, and faith. It is a great book to read at Christmas time, but also anytime during the year (which leads us to the fact that I just read it at the beginning of July haha). Laurie Lewis does a wonderful job of showing how hope and love can lead to miracles as long as you keep fighting.

    Be prepared to have tissues while reading because you will have some tears of all sorts, but trust me its well worth reading and you won’t be disappointed. My favorite thing about Love on a Limb is that instead of focusing strictly on illness and suffering, like many similar books would, this one focused on having hope that things will get better and also on making the best of every situation
