It is a powerful, emotional life affirming book. It totally captivated me. I loved the characters, the pacing, the complex issues that it tackles. It is a multi-layered book, not just a simple romance.
Thomas is a pastor in a tough area. He is a strong but tortured man. Very well able to handle himself in the gang infested environment yet with a caring if lost heart and soul. He has lost his faith and his meaning in life. Immediately I was intrigued and was longing to know his back story, which did unfold to my great satisfaction as the book moved along.
Garnet is quite the opposite to Thomas, she has grown up in this area and also has a back story that makes her really interesting. Now she works as a nurse/director of a small endeavour to help mothers bring their children safely into the world and hopefully keep them that way. Garnet is strong and tough, a go-getter. She believes she knows the gang members and will be relatively safe on the streets. She is full of life, dresses in warm bright attire and exudes energy and life.
When the two meet they clash, in good ways and a relationship springs up that tests them both and eventually leads to something wonderful. But first they must make the journey and that is a whole books worth of happenings.
This book spoke to my heart and soul. One I savoured and relished.
As usual, Emilie Richards nails the various aspects of each character, which I think is a rare talent. This book gave me a deeper understanding of the angst a member of clergy feels and how difficult it must be to try to be what each person needs from him or her.
I didn't think I would like reading about gang influences but found I could see how that could be an attraction. Good, thoughtful read.
Garnet Anthony, a nurse practitioner, runs Mother and Child, a health care and social services facility for women and children living in the Corners. She is determined to live at the Corners for the rest of her life, no matter what happens to her. As both Thomas and Garnet work together to try and improve life in the Corners, many stumbling blocks occur that slow down their progress.
This heart wrenching story was powerful, and the genius behind the words grabbed me from the start and did not let up until the end. It is an action-packed, truthful look at hard times where people not only want to make a difference, but also give it their all to try and make it happen. I loved it. [I received this book as a gift from the author, Emilie Richards.]
I received this book as a gift from the author, Emilie Richards and am voluntarily reviewing it.
In this book Ms. Richards tackles the emotional journey of a minister, Thomas, who has lost his way and lost his faith. He is still preaching, but no longer believes in what he shares with the downtrodden, gang controlled congregation that he has taken on. He has also lost the belief in himself as a man.
Garnet is a nurse from the Corners determined to stay and help those in her community, no matter how hard they make it. After she is attacked, she and Thomas come together to form a bond of protection. She sees the greatness of the man that Thomas is. The hard part is getting him to see the same.
This book definitely took me somewhere I had never been before. I'm so glad I read it!
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
