    Shannon Malone thought she'd found her happy ending when she married Edmund Ridgeway, but a diving accident on their honeymoon left her in a coma. Waking up to the news that she's thirty years old would have been daunting enough . . . but she also learns that Edmund has lost his interim battle with cancer and the world has marched on without her. Her gorgeous doctor, Daniel Petros, seems to know everything about her and becomes Shannon's tour guide into a whole new world of madness where reality television has taken over the planet and everyone's life appears to revolve around a tiny screen on their cell phones!

    As Shannon struggles to navigate through the changes-both in the world and in her-she also must discern real memories from imagined ones. Did she really ever wear capris pants and entertain in her living room, or was that Laura Petrie from her favorite classic TV show? And where is her beloved dog, Freeway? Oh, wait! That was Jonathan and Jennifer Hart's dog, not hers.

    Shannon's three elderly aunts flit through her life in true Sleeping Beauty style with her well-being always a priority. And Edmund's sister Millicent descends like the Evil Queen she is, trying to extract Shannon from any claim on the Ridgeway family fortune. When a tornado moves through town and Shannon is knocked unconscious, will Daniel's kiss awaken her once and for all?

    • Unique and Delightful

      Reading this book was such a pleasant surprise. When you read one of Sandie Bricker books, you come away with feeling you have a new best friend. This was totally the case when I read Rise and Shine. Shannon married the love of her lie Edmund Ridgeway. Yet life took an unexpected turn when an accident happened while on her honeymoon. The accident left her in a coma. And yet life for her stopped yet the world around her continued. One unexpected day she "woke" and found life had changed, talk about a rude awakening. She not only discovered she was now a widow, but technology had been discovered. The world of Ipads, texting the internet and even Skype had come into play while she was asleep. Yet can she move on and begin a new life? Watching Shannon discover not only herself but also how her life of her past helps her adjust to the new life around her. And of course it would not be complete with out her realizing she found love again. This could be daunting for anyone yet how she realized she loved the man in front of her, will leave you believing in love all over again. This book will find you cheering Shannon on, crying with Shannon and somehow she has wrapped herself round your finger and she has become apart of your life. Well Done!!! So worth 5 plus stars.

    • Good read

      The book began in such and unexpected way. I love how the author dealt with love and loss and discovering new depths in our relationship with Christ and deeper meaning for our own lives. Sometimes you do not reach your greatest heights without the pain of loss and taking the risk to reach for the stars again. Good good book.

    • Excellent!

      Marriage means happily ever after, right? Not for Shannon Ridgeway, not when unexpected tragedy happens on her honeymoon. She awakens from a coma ten years later, obviously alot has changed, but not just what you would expect in ten years. She has to learn how to get on in her life, with no Edmund, no career, no prospect of a career or remembering what she liked to do. Her faith in God is put in question, until she realizes that is one of the things she needs most. Having Dr. Daniel, who cared for her for ten years and became a close friend of Edmund helps her get back into her life. Once again, Sandra Bricker has exceeded my expectations. Just when I think I have found my favorite of her books, she changes my mind with a new release!

    • Real life fairy tale

      This book is a real life fairy tale. Sleeping Beauty arises after 10 years of being in a coma. I've always thought it would be hard to imagine what it would be like to wake up after being in a coma for 10 years. Sandra Bricker has described perfectly what it would be like. Imagine the changes in technology, friends, and family after a period of time like that. Overnight, your whole world would change and evolve without you. If you ever wondered what that would be like, read this book. It's funny and touching. And what would a fairy tale be without a happily-ever-after ending?
