*****#1 Best Seller in Amazon Inspirational Romance*****
For some, it's simply one of life's certainties, nothing more. For others, it's merely a fleeting thought, one often overshadowed by the reckless delusion that they have been blessed with the gift of immortality.
For Aubrey Miller, death is the definition of her very existence. Overcome with the guilt resulting from the loss of her beloved family, she alters her appearance from the once beautiful, blonde-haired, blue-eyed little girl to that of one shrouded in complete darkness, enveloping herself in her own unbreakable fortress of solitude as a form of protection for others.
As she enters her first year of college, her goal is simple: Earn a degree with the least amount of social interaction as possible. What she never anticipates is the formation of very unlikely relationships with two people who will change her life in ways she never believed possible: Quinn Matthews, the boisterous former pageant queen, and Kaeleb McMadden, a childhood friend from her past who never really let her go.
Over the years, as their connections intertwine and grow, a seemingly indestructible bond is formed between the three...
But when death painfully reemerges, Aubrey is lost once again, burying herself deeper than ever before inside the familiar fortification of her fears.
Will the refuge of friendship, the solidarity of life-long bonds, and the power of unconditional love be enough to do the impossible?
Will they be enough to finally bring about...
The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller?

I am not even sure where to start, wow. What an emotional read. This book sucks you in right from the beginning and you can't help but feel Aubrey's pain. She has been through so much in life and she feels like she is to blame for all the loss. The way in which she deals with her life is truly heartbreaking and you just want to shake her and tell her these things are not her fault.
When her the only best friend she has ever had comes back into her life, you can't help but feel hopeful. You hope that Kaeleb will be able to break down her walls and get her to see all she is missing in life. So then when it does happen, you can't help but be happy for her. However, the happiness doesn't last long when tragedy strikes yet again. Will Kaeleb be able to bring her back? Will Aubrey ever know the true meaning of happiness?
I seriously can't recommend this book enough. I loved it from the very beginning and adored the ending. Kaeleb was so wonderful and has become one of my top BBF due to his love of Aubrey and Aubrey turned out to be such a strong woman. L.B Simmons did an excellent job of showing all the emotions of Aubrey and everything she has been through. You were able to connect with the characters and feel as though you had a vested interest in their lives. True, this book may be hard to read for some, but it is so worth it. Great job L.B.!!
L.B. Simmons is a graduate of Texas A&M University and holds a degree in Biomedical Science. She has been a practicing Chemist for the last 11 years. She lives with her husband and three daughters in Texas and writes every chance she gets.
