Adrienne is an exceptional writer and always creates memorable characters.
Both Grant and Morgan were well written, as were the secondary characters. I was absolutely enthralled with Morgan. What an extraordinary man who lived his life on his terms. I absolutely fell in love with him!
I read and reread so many scenes in this book because the beauty of the words just captivated me. Adrienne's words were poetic. I enjoyed the phrasing of Grant's thoughts not only in regards to his feelings for Morgan, but how he saw things through Morgan's eyes.
Morgan showing himself to Grant through the absence of light was truly beautiful.
Watching the love story of these two men play out was a thing of beauty. But this book also had great suspense and quite a bit of humor. Both men have a past that comes to play in the story and it gets pretty intense.
I can't stress enough how wonderful this book was. And is it my imagination or do I sense a Jeff book in the future? (hint hint)
Definitely going in my top reads of 2015 list. I can't recommend this book enough. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would in a heartbeat!
Thank you Adrienne Wilder, much love to you!
Morgan is a stunning character, he is so well written. He is just real, he comes alive on each page. His struggles with parts of his autism and his independence, and strong will were great to read. One of my favourite scenes was when he was learning to drive the car, his utter happiness when he actually did was fantastic.
I liked Grant as a character too. I liked that he wasn't perfect, he made mistakes in his dealings with Morgan and at times didn't know what to say or how to handle situations. Although some of his past actions have made him not the good guy, he is the good guy in how protects Morgan. I also liked that being with Morgan opened his eyes and made him a better person. He was still prepared to do whatever it took to protect Morgan. When everyone else was embarrassed or horrified at the autistic boy in the diner, he took the time to calm the boy down and make him and his sister comfortable so they could enjoy their meal, this showed real growth for Grant as at the start of the book. He would have been one of the ones staring.
I found Jeff an interesting character. I spent a lot of the book trying to work out his motives and if he was a good guy or bad guy. I kind of hope we get to hear more about him
