Publisher's Summary

Marry the love of my life. Become a mother. Write a book.

Number one was complete. I was well on my way to checking off goals two and three, before a cancer diagnosis derailed my plans.

A story meant to chronicle the journey of impending motherhood with wit, became a brutally honest memoir of living life to the fullest.

Make every breath count.

When finally confronted with the knowledge the cancer is terminal, I search for a way to accomplish all the things I wanted to do within my lifetime...when I don't have a lifetime left.

Every Last Drop is the heartfelt, unflinching, and original story of how when faced with the hardest truth, we finally learn how far we will go to discover who we are before it's too late.

Loved the characters, story and won't forget it...

I was not prepared for this book. I loved the characters, I related to the story with my whole heart. It warmed my heart and then shattered it. I have not gotten so emotional over a book for years. Tessa is a hero, she's your sister, your best friend, your past high school classmate, your daughter, your lover. This book is thought provoking and challenging, intellectually and emotionally. Whether you agree with her or not, you will love her and respect her courage, strength and desire to live--to make every day, hour, minute count. You will hug your family more often and hold the ones you love closer. Thank you Sarah Robinson for this beautiful, profound, artistic and powerful story. It joins a handful of books that will remain in my thoughts often.

Death With Dignity

This book was hard for me to read/listen too, in the beginning. But as I continued, I found myself loving this story. Tessa Barnes Falls, was a brave woman. Doing the unthinkable. At the age of 28, Tessa found herself facing a life altering illness. She has cancer. She wants to take her life, what she had left, and do it her way. Live and Die with dignity. Tessa's story touched my heart, the more I read/listened too it. I don't personally know anyone who has dealt with the issues this character had. I would like to think, the hoops she had to jump through, have diminished. I'm not sure if the state I live in, recognizes the Death With Dignity Act. But, I feel that everyone, in the situation as this character, has the right to choose, death over life. This is my personal opinion, and know full well that many disagree with my thoughts, but you know that old saying, "opinions are like...everyone has one." I recommend this book, but I want you to know, it's content isn't for everyone, and ask that you please read the synopsis, beforehand. Oh, and have a full box of tissues on hand. Sarah Robinson, thank you for writing this incredible story. It was eye opening. It made me think about choices. My choices! This book deserves so much more than the maximum of 5 stars...

Tissues will be needed!!!

I don't even know where to begin with this review. This book was amazing! This book made me ugly cry! This book brought out EVERY emotion! At the beginning of the book I was laughing so hard at Tessa's personality. She had a big one that's for sure. I could feel the love she and Kyle had for each other. It literally just oozed off the pages. Even when they got bad news, Tessa was able to keep her positive and fun personality. I could not even begin to imagine the depth of feelings that this situation brought on, but she had an amazing family who stuck beside her through every second of it. Sarah Robinson, thank you for your amazing words! The narration by Jaimee Moore was amazing! She portrayed the characters perfectly. She was able to carry the emotion that each person was feeling with ease. I am not quite sure how she was able to narrate this book without bawling her eyes out!! The only suggestion I would make is the chapter changes somehow needed a little more ease. There was lots of static and clicking noises between chapters, which I'm sure had something to do with editing them all together. I definitely recommend this book, just know that you will need tissues....LOTS OF TISSUES!

Heartfelt

Every Last Drop is by far one of the best books I have ever read. This book is so emotional you won’t forget, it is filled with love, laughter, sadness and hope. Keep the tissues handy and be ready for a serious book hangover. People really need to read this amazing book. I would love to see this book made into a movie.

Wonderful

I listen to a lot of audio books and it’s the narrator that can make it or break it for me. Jaimee Moore makes the book such a pleasure to listen to and actually makes the book better!

Such An Emotional Journey!

Tessa’s journey is heartbreaking, but beautifully written. This is more women’s fiction, I think? Tessa and her husband, Kyle, are on what they hope is their journey to parenthood. What they get is a cancer diagnosis. This is Tessa’s journey and it is raw and emotional. Jaimee Moore did a great job with narrating. There are some weird sounds and long pauses and the end/beginning of the chapters. 🎧AudiobookObsession🎧

Intense and Amazing!

This review has hard for me to even put into words. This is without a doubt the most emotionally intense books I have ever listened too, She brought the characters to life in this book amazingly. I was extremely captivated by the story. It was heartbreaking and you really wanted to route for Tessa all throughout the story. It is definitely the book to make you have the ultimate book hangover! Jamiee brought this intense story to life and made you feel this in your soul! Warning: I wouldn't suggest listening to this if you have a terminally illness, I normally can listen to a book in a day and this took me about a month to listen to. #audiobookobsessionreviewer

Speechless

It’s taken me a few days to write a review as My emotions are still so raw. This is a wonderfully written story of a hound woman’s terminal battle with cancer I so wanted a happy ending even though I knew there wouldn’t be one. Tessa is so strong as she faces death head on I cried so hard for Tessa but also for her husband father sister and poor Beast! This story is worth the heartbreak you will face at the end The narrator did a great job but the sound was off so even I could not rate 5 stars. There were times between chapters were the sound would almost screech which was distracting when I was completely engrossed in the story. If the sound gets fixed I’d rated it ten stars

Emotional but I couldn't connect

This was a touching story. The discovery of a tumor throw a wrench into Tessa and her husband's plans of having a child. They must determine the best course of action to take. I can feel the love and emotion the author put into the story but, for me, it didn't pack the punch I thought it should. The start was so slow, it took me so long to hold my attention and I never could fully connect with any of the characters. Tessa had an attitude and was rather aggressive and abrasive, which I could understand to a point but it frustrated me. I did like the amount of support she had around her, her husband was behind her decisions even if he didn't agree. At times, they could be selfish - then again, can't we all? I like that the characters were flawed. While it's a beautiful story, it just didn't hit me the way it should have. If you want an emotional woman's fiction then I would recommend this because I think it'll resonate with a lot of people. Jaimee Moore's narration itself was great. She gave the characters distinct voices and However there were some production issues. There were sounds or feedback at the beginning of chapters, some unnecessarily long pauses at the end of chapters (I had to make sure I didn't accidentally pause it), and the sound quality and volume were not consistent throughout. I'd give the story 3.5ish starts.

Shattering Story!

Tessa's story isn’t a romance, but there is definitely a lot of love in this story. This is a woman’s fiction, heartbreakingly and beautifully written. Tessa is a wonderful young woman, resilient, and mature. Kyle, Tessa’s husband, is a handsome man, caring, loving, supportive and protective. Her Dad and Sister are also wonderful. I absolutely love the family spirit, and the family bond between them. This is the part that comforted me while listening: Tessa wasn’t alone in this journey. I laughed, I was worried, and I cried, a lot. At the end of this journey, I had no other words to explain how I was feeling: Shattered! Jaimee Moore did an great job to bring this story to life. No doubt this was a difficult story to write, and to narrate! The only issue were the distracting noises at the beginning of the chapters. Trigger Warning: I do not recommend you to listen to this audiobook, if you recently received a cancer diagnosis and/or a terminally ill prognosis.

Good narration of an interesting story

Jaime Moore does a really good job bringing these characters and their story to life. This is a little bit of an odd one for me. Despite the storyline it somehow didn't really hit me in the feels. To say I enjoyed it also feels wrong to say. I appreciated it, I got where it was coming from and where it was going. It kept me interested all the way through and I was kinda sad when it ended.

Heartbreaking and Inspiring!

Tess should be at a point in her life when she should be focused on pursuing her dreams not planning her death. Her attempts to find out why she and her husband Kyle haven’t been able to have a child leads to the devastating news that she has a brain tumor and there is no outcome that will see her being able to beat it. This is a heartbreaking yet inspiring story of her battle and doing it her way. There are no words to describe the deep and abiding love that she and Kyle shared and how he supported her decisions even if they broke his heart. With the support of him and her family it gave her the strength she needed and in turn she gave them the strength that they needed to do what was right for Tess. This is an emotional story that will have you ugly crying from the beginning, but it is an experience you don’t want to miss. I received a complimentary copy of the audio book and the narrator did a great job of ensuring the emotion and poignancy of this story is heard as well as felt.

Amazing!

Every Last Drop by Sarah Robinson is a contemporary women’s fiction novel that I listened to on audio narrated by Jaimee Moore. This was the first book of Sarah’s that I have read and it definitely won’t be my last. This book took me on an emotional journey. I would recommend having a box of tissue next to you while reading this book. Sarah did an amazing job on the writing. It just pulled me in and made me feel like I was part of Tessa’s world. Absolutely amazing! Jaimee did an amazing job on the narration. I loved that she used different tones/voices for each character it really brought the story to life. I could feel the emotion of the story coming out in each character. I can’t wait to listen to more projects that she has worked on. AudiobookObsession AudiobookObsessionReviewer

I am speechless!!!

I give this book 5 stars on every level, and tell you that you HAVE to listen to this book! Although it tackles a still controversial subject, Sarah Robinson did such an amazing job telling it, and it’s obvious that she cared deeply for these characters and what they went through. The characters are so real, and their love is tangible and real, and so is their anger and grief. I am a sap, and I freely admit it, but I can’t remember another book that has made me shed so many tears. The choices made by Tessa in this book.. well, they didn’t and won’t make every person who hears it happy, and that’s ok.. you don’t have to be happy about it. What matters is that Tessa got to make those decisions for herself. No one made them for her, nor did they have the right to do so. I have already recommended this book to anyone I know who reads or listens, and if you’re reading this, I’m recommending it to you as well. I asking you to listen to this... open your heart and mind, put everything else aside, and listen to Tessa tell you her heart. Jaime Moore did such a great job narrating this story! Her tone and the way her emotions show, brought Tessa to life for me and made my listening experience better!!

Live life to the fullest

I have to say, when I started this book, I was not prepared for the story. I saw Sarah Robinson's name and said, of course I want to listen to it! And then I began the journey of Tessa's life.Tessa was having difficulty getting pregnant and when searching for answers to why was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Now, she is young, so the hope is shrink the tumor and remove it and continue life. But when this is not the case, Tessa makes the preparations to live her life to the fullest for what she has left, and makes some decisions about how she wants to die. It's a story of true love and passion, heartache and frustration and you will need a box of tissues as you listen.Sarah has written this book with style and grace, pulling no punches as to the difficulty of the situation and sugar coats nothing. It's raw, gritty, truthful and so very, very good. I loved and hated every minute of the book, and will find it on top 10 of my listens for the year. Jaimee Moore just enhances this story with her incredible narration.The story is so emotionally charged and she finds every one and pulls us in. We live, love and grieve right along with each character and she delivers a perfect performance.

Beautifully Tragic

Tessa and her husband decided to take the next step on trying to have a child. They go to a fertility clinic and get tested to see what the problem is and what the steps are to move forward. Instead, Tessa discovers that she has a tumor on her brain. Her life and plans are thrown upside down and she must decide the best course of action from there. I really didn't care for the story. It had a very slow start and I found that Tessa's attitude got a bit under my skin. Because of the diagnosis, I decided to keep reading. I knew that it would get better as the story went on. I knew it would end up being a beautiful story or a beautifully tragic story. I knew there was a chance that it would give me deep thoughts. I was not disappointed there. I really didn't connect with any of the characters at first. I felt that Tessa was way too aggressive. She got angry with the doctors like it was their fault that she was diagnosed and things turned out the way that they did. She broke other people's property like that was okay. I mean I get why, but it was so frustrating. And the people in her life had moments where they were really selfish and didn't really care about the pain she was going through. I'm really not looking forward to bringing this part up. I really enjoyed Jaimee Moore's voice. She's got this naturally narrative voice. She goes from voice to voice with ease. My problem was the hollow sound that seemed to kind of exist in the background of the entire audio. It wasn't horrible, but it was very present. Then there was this feedback at the beginning of many chapters that was a little disturbing. Other than that, the narration was great. This story was beautiful, but sad. It was also very educational. I may not have cared for the story or characters much at the beginning, but I adored both in the end. The biggest thing about this book is that it needs to be read with an open mind. It's full and heavy. It's a very deep topic. I really did enjoy it a lot. Have tissues ready!
