A man's eyes are the windows to his soul... if he has one. Deep in the darkness of a Depression-era night, a man addicted to alcohol sells something precious to obtain it. His vile action impacts the lives of two entire families, and it will be over two decades before the horrible wrong begins to be made right again. Two young women - strangers to each other - unknowingly enmeshed in a Pandora's Box of secrets that could prevent them from finding happiness with the men they love. Two adoring mothers who know more than they are willing to say. A newsman with a story he cannot tell. What is their connection, and who is the golden-eyed stranger who moves in the shadows of their broken lives?

What can I say, the only good thing about this book was the beginning. It all fell apart after that, and especially at the end with the 'surprise.' It was all just too much. The plot was thin, the characters flat, and the insta-love between everyone grated on my nerves. (One of the relationships was just too gross for me to be okay with.)
I received a code for a free copy of the audiobook version for my honest review.
It was all just too neat and tidy, with every single obstacle taken care of by a convenient 'miracle' from God. The end had me rolling my eyes because of how unbelievable it all was. Really? Twin pains..? Please.
I did enjoy listening to the audiobook. The male narrator did very well, especially with all of the female voices he had to do! And while he did come off a little robotic at times in the beginning, I found that he made the less than enjoyable novel a little more bearable.
The beginning of the book was somewhat confusing to me, but the story picked up after the background information was in place. I did not see some of the stuff happening in this book! It was really good and I would recommend it!
