Sam Hill always saw the world through different eyes. Born with red pupils, he was called “Devil Boy” or Sam “Hell” by his classmates; “God’s will” is what his mother called his ocular albinism. Her words were of little comfort, but Sam persevered. Sam believed it was God who sent Ernie Cantwell, the only African American kid in his class, to be the friend he so desperately needed. And that it was God’s idea for Mickie Kennedy to storm into Our Lady of Mercy like a tornado, uprooting every rule Sam had been taught about boys and girls. Forty years later, Sam, a small-town eye doctor, is no longer certain anything was by design.

Outstanding story that captivates! I enjoy reading Dugoni’s books tremendously. However, this book is like none other—it was practically impossible to put down. It feels like it was written from the heart and the characters come to life on the pages.

Attorney Dani Rollins is bullish in the courtroom - pushing judges and prosecutors to their limits in defense of the innocent. So when she meets Teddy Thorne, a mentally challenged teen accused of selling drugs, Dani knows she’s got this in the bag. She can easily settle the case with a couple of court appearances. But when prosecutors move for an adult felony conviction, Dani suspects Teddy’s being used as a pawn in a sinister game. As the case moves forward, Dani is certain the judge and district attorney’s office have motivations beyond the crime.

I could not put this book down. The characters came to light with the author's writing. The deception and betrayal of others was very real. The ending was not something I could have predicted. A must read!

Wynn Jeffries has wanderlust. Unfortunately, her life stalled somewhere between graduating from college and slinging drinks at the local dive bar. Stuck in a one-room apartment with no career, no boyfriend, no...life, she dreams of something more. Something amazing. Something like Oliver Reeves, her high school crush, who's back in town and reminding Wynn of the way she used to be.

The message in the story truly spoke volumes to me personally about living MY life vs trying to shape my life to only please others.
