The final book in the Wake Trilogy, does not disappoint. Janie and Cabel are still in love with one another but Janie knows her future holds a life of blindess and losing the use of her hands as a result of her ability to enter people’s dreams and she sees what Cabel is dreaming and not sharing with her. Janie is coming undone by the pressures of this curse, her alcoholic mother, and having to testify at a hearing and being known as a narc. She needs to make a decision, how can she live a normal life with Cabel, if her life is never going to be normal? As she wrestles with this ever constant pressure, Janie finds out her father is alive and about to die because of a brain tumor. What will Janie do, what are her choices? Lisa McMann’s suspense-filled novel, the continued romance of Cabel and Janie through very tough times and the issue of Janie’s alcoholic mother are images I won’t soon forget . Kudos to a realistic portrayal of a gutsy, totally conflicted heroine who yearns for a quiet life but always steps up to handle whatever life deals to her.
