Synopsis:Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience. “You’re pregnant.” “It’s a boy.” “Your son needs a heart transplant.” Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. Lies. Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun. Two words—that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky. “He’s gone.” For ten years, the darkness consumed me. In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise. “Hi. I’m Porter Reese.”

Aly Martinez is a genius. Every book of hers that I read stay with me. She has such a beautiful way of writing and The Darkest Sunrise is no exception.
When Charlotte Mills is in medical school she ends up pregnant. She was a complete shock. But, the minute her son is put in her arms she knows she was suppose to be his mother. Her son was born with a bad heart and would one day need a new one. But, that doesn't stop her from one day hoping her son will have the life he deserves.
One day while out for a walk there's another mother in need of help. When Charlotte is done her life is turned upside down. Her son is missing. He was never found. Not a word was heard.
In order for Charlotte to grieve for her son she dives back into school. Ten years later she has become one of the top Pulmonologists in the country. She'll do anything to save her patients.
Charlotte's not living. She's haunted by loosing her son. Charlotte will never give up hope that he'll be returned to her one day. Either alive or not. She just wants him back. Charlotte will never forgive herself. She refuses to take on child patients. She can't be around them. Not ever when Porter Reese comes into her life. For the first time in her life she is looking not the eyes of someone who has the same pain and darkness thats in hers.
Porter Reese is the single father to two beautiful children. Loosing his wife a few years ago in a car accident. If that didn't haunt him enough. His son is sick. He's on the list for new lungs but he must be healthy or he won't get them.
Every doctor he talks too tells him to go and see Dr. Charlotte Mills. The only problem is she refuses to see pediatric patients. He figures if he can just get her to talk to him she'll make an exception. But, when he sees her everything changes. Porter's never had such a strong connection to anybody before. Not even his wife. Her eyes minick the darkness running around in his.
Even though Charlotte cant be around children, doesn't mean she doesn't want to help anyway she can. Plus, she's drawn to him and him to her. They want to spend time together. Its hard with her schedule and him with his children and his 2 restaurants. But, they agree to try. To stay in the dark.
The last few pages gutted me. Just when I thought I was prepared. Aly definitely had me shocked. I honestly need the second part to this story. BC, everyone in this story need answers. They need closure. Whatever it may be.
For everything Porter and Charlotte have gone through. I hope they can see past whats in front of them and listen to the story. I can't wait for whats next to come in I'm hoping a beautiful ending.

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children. Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person. She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
