Until the Stars Fall From the Sky makes no pretensions as to what it is; it is a soppy, beautiful, and at times heart-rending romance. I had read an earlier book by Mary Crawford and had enjoyed it so much, I jumped at the opportunity to read this one. What I particularly like about Crawford's style is they way in which she develops her characters and how we are drawn into her character's lives.
Until the Stars Fall From the Sky is romance with a slight twist. We meet the two main characters; Jeff and Kiera, who both bring to this relationship issues that need to be dealt with. Jeff, an African American with childhood insecurities and Kiera, a paraplegic, redhead, are destined to meet and fall in love, facing all the difficulties inherent in a relationship that crosses cultural and physical boundaries.
Crawford deals with the central issue of Kiera's disability exceptionally well. What I particularly like about this book is it's not about conflict, it's not about race and it's not even about disability; what it is, is a celebration of love, romance, and friendship. I don't think I can be accused of being a "soppy bugger", but I think every so often, it's really nice to read a sweet story, with a happy ending and the promise of more to come. Mary Crawford's book fills that role admirably. I love her style and I'm also thrilled to see she has a whole plethora of books, each one focusing on a different set of characters from this story. I am certainly tempted to read more in this series.
An excellent read and one that makes you sigh and say: "ahhhh, yes," and I think we all need to do that from time to time. I wouldn't hesitate in awarding Until the Stars Fall from the Sky, the full five stars it so richly deserves. Thank you Mary Crawford, for a truly enjoyable read.
