ABOUT UNTIL IT FADES:
Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania (population three thousand outside of tourist season).
And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed date, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has rescued: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.
Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works. For a time.
But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. There’s an immediate connection, and it’s more electric than the bond of two people who endured a traumatic event. It’s something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something she is afraid to trust.
Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine…before the spark fades?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
K.A. Tucker is the author of He Will Be My Ruin and the Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water series. She currently resides outside of Toronto with her husband, two beautiful girls, and a Chug.
Amy Harmon’s claim of Until it Fades being “a modern-day Cinderella story that will make you hope again” is true.
Until it Fades starts off with a riveting scene that has the perfect mix of shock and dread that will seep through your system and enough to make you curious as to what the repercussions of our dear heroine, Catherine Wright’s actions are. It grabs a hold of you from the get go. K.A. Tucker slowly but surely created a delicious build up with having the early chapters of the book consist of a past to present transitions. Through that format, it shed some light towards the root cause of it all and created a perfect avenue to easily showcase the difference and growth that took place in Catherine’s character: Teen Catherine to Mom Catherine.
“It does feel magical. It does feel like a fairy tale. That a man like Brett – so charming, so talented, so breathtakingly handsome, so seemingly perfect in every way – would become infatuated with an ordinary woman like me.”
