5.0 out of 5 starsSuch A Moving Story
Reviewed in the United States on January 30, 2014
This story provides a moving portrayal of the effects domestic violence has on the victims, to the extent that every relationship they have is colored by their experiences. Here, Jenny - the victim of numerous incidents of violence from her husband, who then disappears for long periods of time - takes in a handsome stranger to help him recover from gunshot wounds and slowly the two fall in love. it takes great courage on her part and patience on his to finally lay her (and to some extent his) demons to rest, but not before her husband returns to try to break Jenny's spirit once and for all. A must read.
Not my favorite. But then again, not the worst. Got lost and confused in the story more than once. It was almost as if pieces were missing during conversations. And her words seemed almost forced and WAY too fluffy. At times I liked Jenny's character, but mostly she just frustrated and irritated me. I like Ben, Robby and Sam though. I thought there was an interesting twist in Sam's storyline. Overall the storyline was ok. But the loose holes and the roundabout writing style was obnoxious. Ease up on Jenny's over-the-top craziness and it would be a little better. Maybe.
Good story. Moved along fairly well not too slow. Only complaint was the editing. You really need one who can read. Never read bam used in place of so many different words. The / Doesn't replace ' in a contraction. Hope the next one is better.
Of course that's my personal opinion! The book by Raine was touching and hard to put down. Loved the characters and the plot in the story. The story kept me guessing and I like a book that's not predictable.
It was a good story in the most part but a little bit heavy going and sometimes you got a bit waylaid in the telling of it and as for Jen and her misery is little bit heavy going at times but at least the ending was good. Not my favourite of this authors books
