It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read.–T.M. Frazier, USA Today Bestselling author of King
Remember us…when I can’t.
Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.
A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.
Jim Whelan is on autopilot.
A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.
Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.
When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.
50 First Dates meets Awakenings in this emotional love story by international and best-selling author, Emma Scott.
A Five-Minute life contains subject matter that might be sensitive to some readers.
Review by Twinsie Tenise
I was told by a friend to read this book. I totally trust her recommendations so I went in blind. Nothing I say about this book could ever do it justice. Every once in a while you read a book unlike any other, with a storyline so unique it should be in a class of it’s own. That leaves you feeling like a 5 star rating system just isn’t fair- that the book deserves way more. A Five Minute Life was definitely that book for me.
I just finished and my first thought was – PHENOMENAL! Everyone needs to read this book. It’s a real page turner and will definitely stay with me. By far the best I’ve read this year. A Five Minute Life has ALL the FEELS- make sure you have the tissues handy- you are going to need them.
