Review: STAND by A.L. Jackson


“Don’t you know falling stars aren’t for wishing on? They’re a wish finally falling free. Somewhere out there…someone has a wish coming true.

Stand is a devastatingly beautiful and heart-wrenching story about sacrifices, atonement, and love. The unbelievably raw and conflicting emotions portrayed makes your heart weep, yet soar at the same time. The pain and heartache each character endures in the story proves that not all love is carefree and uncomplicated. The harrowing actions of others brought the characters together, but it was up to them whether their grievous situations could bring them closer, or tear them apart.

“Living is a choice. We decide how we wake up each morning and face the day. Either we’re led by hope or ruled by fear. And I won’t let circumstances define me. Maybe I’m a fool, because I will stand or I will fall, but I will never, ever allow fear to clip my wings.”

A.L. Jackson’s writing was phenomenal! She has this extraordinary way of evoking such strong emotions through her characters, entangling her readers with the outcome of the story. Although parts of Stand were tougher to get through than others, it still holds a powerful message that faith and fear can coincide, as long as you take the risk on the unknown.

A compelling love story that bleeds intense emotions.
