Aimee’s wedding is supposed to turn out perfect. Her dress, her fiancé and the location—the idyllic holiday ranch in Brazil—are perfect.

But all Aimee’s plans come crashing down when the private jet that’s taking her from the U.S. to the ranch—where her fiancé awaits her—defects mid-flight and the pilot is forced to perform an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.

With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is Aimee and Tristan’s—the pilot—only hope. A slim one that slowly withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, diseases. Beasts.
As Aimee and Tristan fight to find ways to survive, they grow closer. Together they discover that facing old, inner agonies carved by painful pasts takes just as much courage, if not even more, than facing the rainforest.

Despite her devotion to her fiancé, Aimee can’t hide her feelings for Tristan—the man for whom she’s slowly becoming everything. You can hide many things in the rainforest. But not lies. Or love.

Withering Hope is the story of a man who desperately needs forgiveness and the woman who brings him hope. It is a story in which hope births wings and blooms into a love that is as beautiful and intense as it is forbidden.


Wow! This story completely blew me away! I’m seriously at a loss for words right now I can’t even begin to explain how good this was!

Ok so a quick recap: Aimee has finished work early and decided to go meet with her fiancée/best friend since childhood, Chris, earlier than originally planned. What she wasn’t planning on was the turbulence that caused her and Tristan, Chris’s pilot, to crash land in the middle of the Amazon rainforest. She also was not counting on feeling the way she felt. The time the two are forced to spend together creates a bond stronger than any they’ve ever felt before and they can’t deny the feelings they have.

Tristan is a very capable pilot and doesn’t think twice when Aimee asks him to change his flight plans and agrees to take her to Brazil sooner. The crash landing forces him to face fears he never thought he’d be able to face and he finds his own heaven in the middle of nowhere.

Withering Hope takes you on a journey of discovery and will keep you glued to the pages. A heartwarming and gut wrenching love story that is beautifully written. A MUST read!!
