My Thoughts

Lailah was born with a heart defect and has spent most of her life in the hospital. She writes her heart in a journal which includes a list of things she would like to do someday. Jude is working in the hospital where Lailah is a patient and comes across her eating pudding late one night. Something about her draws him in and he begins to leave pudding for her every night. She finally catches him during one of his late night pudding drop offs and they become friends. She tells him about things she has on her someday list and he begins to give some of those to her. Jude has his own heart issues that he is dealing with after losing his girlfriend in an accident. In the moments Lailah and Jude spend together, they begin to fall in love. It isn't an easy road with her being ill and him working through loss and guilt.

I so loved this sweet love story. Lailah and Jude are so good for each other. They learn to live and love together and through that their hearts heal.

I give Within These Walls 5 hearts!

About the Book

Within these walls, he became my solace, my sanctuary and my strength. 

I am not strong. I am just a survivor of circumstance. Isn’t that what we all do? Survive? 

Each of us has our own set of circumstances to muddle through. Mine are just more…complicated. 

Born with a severe heart defect, I’ve seen the inside of a hospital room more than my own bedroom. 

I was drowning, a prisoner to the illness that owned me, until he appeared. He thinks he’s blocked out the world with his tattoos and hard exterior, but I see the real Jude, the one he so desperately wants to forget.

But is he the answer to my prayers or will he break my already damaged heart forever? 

 My name is Lailah Buchanan, and this is our story of hope, redemption and sacrificing it all for the one you love.
