Five years later they find themselves stranded in a blizzard in the cabin. In the small space they are forced to look at themselves as young adults and to see where they were really coming from. There is lots to settle as both parties were hurt and carry that hurt still. this was an interesting 2 day period. I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it. one reviewer referred to all the "foul language". For the life of me I can't even remember that part - I just finished the book. Maybe I was more concerned with the story and where it was going. I do know the son and father had real issues and when they got into it with each other maybe there were foul words, but I truly don't remember them. I thought the story was good, I liked the characters - very human and believable and I liked the end. Someone should have put the old grandmother down!!! But that is just my thinking. In total, good read and entertaining.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
For the main part. I loved the story line of Lil going to her cabin she used during warmer months, and decided it would be a good Christmas get away. She had her fill of sympathy, empathy because her ex fiancé was getting married to another on Christmas Eve, which was the date they were to be married a year ago. Complications from her family and past we're following her and emotions unresolved. She just needed to get away.
With the ex's wedding, also brought a little more of her past back, as she had cared for her ex's brother at one time, and he had come back not just for the wedding, but to help his father, after the father's a heart attack, and help with the Greenhouses. Coming back home also opened many unresolved issues for Cassey. Cassey was always the black sheep and getting in trouble as a youth, which is one of the issues between him and Lil. Cassey had just had enough of his father always expecting the worse, even with having changed during his time gone, and having had his own business. Things came to a head, and Cassey was going to head out after the wedding, he had enough and walking away. UNTIL . A blizzard hit, and forcing Lil and him to sit out the blizzard together.
Lil and Cassey's time in the storm made them both face things they didn't want too, but it also unleashed a new beginning neither thought they would every have.
So if you like a cozy cabin in a blizzard with a nice fire in the fireplace and watching young folks sorting through the rubble of the past...this makes a Good read to cozy up to.
