The author does a wonderful job of weaving the romance in with the events that shaped the two women’s lives to the present. They come to terms with their past traumas as they grow closer to one another. The relationship allows them to each grow stronger. The sweet family moments balance the abusive husband moments well. Fortunately, although his behavior looms threateningly over the family, he’s not present much. Lucy’s strength and love for the family gives Nicole the strength to find her own way. I enjoyed how they both healed the other. Wonderful story!
Lucy was my favorite in this book because she's a compelling character, very quiet and withdrawn but absolutely selfless when she sees someone who needs help. In this case, that's Nicole Granger and her kids. Nicole, like Lucy, has had a rather traumatic past. While Lucy has been in her self-imposed exile, Nicole has been living with an abusive husband, and has finally gotten away with her three kids. The little girls are sweet and charming, and the oldest of them, 8-year-old Storm, starts shipping her mom and Lucy like crazy. I was shipping them like crazy too!
At the end of the day, it's a story of two broken women who help each other figure out how to become whole again, the sort of story that makes you feel hopeful. It's never rushed but unfolds at just the right speed. You won't regret reading it.
