Sometimes there’s no tragic event.
Sometimes there’s just sadness. Just numbness.
Sometimes it’s just a depression you can’t understand.

When Alara’s depression reaches its pinnacle she’s left feeling broken, vulnerable, and more than a little uneasy about moving forward. And although she’s made it to the other side she discovers that the hardest battle may simply be moving on and accepting the hardship she’s been given. Because by all accounts she should be happy, but she isn’t and she still can’t understand why. So she’s moving forward, but with the weight of her guilt and the constant fear of another episode, is she really living? Or has the fear of another episode become just as crippling as the episode itself?

Then she meets Gabriel, a grieving soul struggling to get past his mother’s death and figure out his future. As he reconciles his past and begins planning his future, it becomes clear that he wants Alara in it. He wants the sarcastic, fearful girl that always seems just a little bit out of reach. But will the girl who’s never been able to see a future give him a chance? And when he discovers her darkness, will he still love her through it?

Will she let him?


Unveiling the Sky is an emotionally breathtaking tale that took complete control over my body, mind and soul right from the beginning and held on tight until the very end! Alara and Gabe’s story wholeheartedly engulfed every inch of my heart, causing me to experience ALL THE FEELS! I once again found myself inhaling every moment of their story and falling even more in love with them the third time around (yes…it really took me three times reading this phenomenal story to FINALLY find the right words to express my thoughts).

Jeannine Allison shows readers the TRUTH behind depression that causes us to take a deeper look into ourselves and those around us. As someone who has an up close and personal experience with depression, I couldn’t be more proud of this author for the impact she has made by writing this story. She does not hold back any punches and makes sure that readers experience every emotion possible while following these two on their journey. Alara and Gabe’s relationship struggles at times and their up and down moments have you feeling all twisted inside, and that is the beauty of their story. It’s not perfect, no relationship ever is. They show us that we have to live in the moment, not looking back to the beginning and most certainly not waiting for an ending. LOVE is about being with the one you couldn’t imagine your life without and these two certainly show readers just that!

This story happened to be the author’s debut novel back in 2016, but you would not have expected that because of her captivating storytelling ability! If you only read one book a year, you NEED to make sure it’s Unveiling the Sky! Trust me…YOU WILL NOT REGRET READING THIS STORY! Alara and Gabe will forever hold a special place in my heart for as long as I shall live!
