With each word I was mesmerized, I could feel the terror, imagine the fear, uncertainty each person felt, experienced at any given moment. Anna has the ability to allow my mind to delve into the pages of her book, as if I am there in the midst of the storyline, a bystander watching from the sidelines, a patron at the dive bar dancing along to Chris Stapleton's Tennesse Whiskey. That song will always remind me of Jake and Laura's dance and their first kiss.
Each chapter pulled me in further, hoping for the moment when Jake would give into the invisible string that connected him to Laura. I prayed for that moment when his defenses were down, his walls began to crumble and he didn't think, he reacted to the chemistry and intensity of his jumbled feelings and emotions.
I feel in love with the characters, laughed, cried, screamed, ranted, raced, cheered and cried some more
I am looking forward to Sam's coming back into the cold and finding his own happiness and seeing what the future will hold for Esther, Mercy, Grace, John and Delilah. I know whatever comes there way will be worth the wait and ten times worth the read.
Anna Bishop Barker has the creative ability to pull her readers in, hold their interest word by word and page by page. An amazing talented new author who is a rising star!!
I love guilty pleasure reads and if an author writes a certain type of story or has a certain type of hero, sometimes I’ll read those books even if the writing isn’t that great or the stories need some work. But it’s always nice to run across a newer author that’s not writing crap. While there's nothing particularly amazing about this writing, nothing crazy or over the top in the story line, I just overall really liked it. And with some of the crap I find myself reading these days, a solid writer with good stories is something to be excited about.
Both Laura and Esther took the journey away from their pain and in turn Laura healed Jake by giving him a second chance to find love as well as giving her the gift of healing her soul in Faithful.
When two women needed rescuing from a vengeful cult Jake's brother Sam is there to help them escape. He then meets He'll get them to his brother, Jake who has picked up a new horse before returning back to Faithful. Along the way both Laura and Jake discover they are attracted to each other. While the monster hunts her down the town will show them all how to heal their hearts, body and soul. A wise woman once said at the end of Monk my all time favorite show, "You got him to me to heal", I do believe that the folks of Faithful said that to Laura, Esther and Jake.
I can't wait to read the next book. I always knew that Anna had a stories just waiting to be told. Thank Cristin Harber for give her a push in the right direction.
Dr. Jake Beckett and Laura Howard (along with Sam, Esther, Kyle, Aponi, Delilah and Mercy) take us along a journey of damage endured, fear, escape, and redemption. Jake and Laura each travel through their hell that keeps them from connecting with each other and anyone else in a personal way. Their damaged hearts do not deem the journey to living again worth the risk.
“But sometimes, the hell that a person knew was less terrifying than what was on the other side. Laura knew this truth only too well.”
Faithful is another character in this story. A small southern town filled with big southern characters that have open hearts and hands willing to help Laura and Esther as they adjust to their new surroundings. They find a family of friends supporting them. Neither the town nor its inhabitants are two dimensional but rich with details, backstories, emotional connections, and heartbreak.
Secrets abound in this story as well - the mysterious cult called the Brotherhood, a garden in the woods, family ties and unexpected connections that cause the reader to stay true to the journey.
Journey to Faithful can be read as a standalone but thankfully is part one of trilogy that will allow us to learn more about these wonderful folks and solve a mystery or two. It has a few biscuit crumbs dropped throughout for the next two installments, and I am eagerly awaiting their releases.
