This is the journey of a young woman whose life is filled with questions and ghosts. It is a pilgrimage through rape, incest, murder, anger, betrayal, heartbreak, depression and ultimate love. Sister Scarlett is thrown into discovering the answers to these questions and uncovering these ghosts following the deaths of her grandparents. You are invested within the first 5 pages.
Revell is her "just in case" person. In His own words, "...Maybe I've always loved her because that's what she needed-she needed me just in case things went wrong- just in case she found out the truth. Just in case she couldn't handle it on her own." He is her anchor in what is good, beautiful and loving in the world. He is there to help her find the person she can be, if she is strong enough to try.
Reading this book I was angry, outraged, depressed, happy, filled with sorrow and in the end joy. I needed tissues and cheered out loud. This is not my usual genre, but I will now include Elizabeth Marx in my authors to watch for and read.
This story is very southern, which is as foreign to me as China, but it fascinated me nonetheless. The entire region seemed to be composed of people from just three families, and everyone is up in everyone's business.
Scarlett and Revell have plenty of secrets between them, and plenty of hurt, but I couldn't help but want them to find their way back to each other. The supporting characters ranged from crazy to funny to evil, but none of them were boring.
I loved reading the stuff about the Sacred Harp singers and the stained glass, it just made the story that much more interesting.
There were a few typos/wrong word choices, but they were few and (for me) didn't detract from the story.
I fell for Both Revell “Trax” & Scarlett from the beginning. They had a special dynamic to them that I just loved, and right from the start the angsty banter began.
~~ “What are you doing here anyway? Aren’t you supposed to be building skyscrapers in the middle of Asia? I asked. Revell raised an eyebrow. “Aren’t you supposed to be Miss America?” ~~
The second chance or “just in case” romance adds even more to the storyline. I’m a sucker for second chance stories and I love a hero that was in love before and is still just as in love with the heroine years later as he was before.
The town in which Scarlett and Revell live in captivating. What unfolds in this tiny town throughout the story isn’t something that you’ll usually see in a romance novel which kept my attention. Also i’m not from the south, I’m a yankee, but I do feel like the town, their ways, the characters all of it are written with such ease that you can tell that Elizabeth did her research before diving into to writing.
~~ “Outsiders are frowned upon in this establishment. Yankee outsiders even more so.” “I don’t get it. Do these people realize that the civil war ended one hundred and fifty years ago?” “Yes, and Southerners are sore losers.” ~~
The story has depth a bit of mystery, and romance. The writing is great and it reads flawlessly. I recommend it to all readers and look forward to reading more from this author or series in the future.
The secrets that Scarlett's family harbored for so many years caused so much pain over so much time that when they finally came to the surface it was more than anyone was truly prepared for. Scarlett was born in Alabama where she and her mother lived with her grandparents, but left for Chicago shortly thereafter. While she was growing up she would spend her vacation time visiting with her grandparents and her friends who were more like family. And as the years passed they still remained close, that is until the year Scarlett's mother took her life. Scarlett couldn't find it in herself to ever return to the place that held so many secrets and bad memories.
Though when Scarlett's grandparents were killed in a fire on the anniversary of her mother's suicide, she returned for their funeral services. She didn't realize when she returned that her life would change forever and it didn't matter how many 'just in cases' she prepared for. The man she had always pined for, Revel, that she felt was out of her league showed her how much he truly loved her in many ways and tried to build up what was lost over the years she was away. He knew some of the secrets that had been hidden from her for so long but still didn't know everything that would be revealed.Read more ›
