I was so glad that a few of my friend's reviews mentioned that this story had a paranormal aspect, b/c I would have been really surprised otherwise. Not that I don't love a paranormal touch, but I hadn't expected it from this story when I bought it so long ago. But it was really intriguing, and I loved the way it was woven into the story, and the way it was described. And how it changed and molded Moses, and how it affected his relationship with Georgia.
So why did Part 1 not compel me? It was Moses. He was kind of a dick. I mean, I could sort of understand why he was the way he was, and I sort of understood how he became that way and why he acted the way he did towards Georgia...but at the same time I needed something to pull me in, and I don't feel like I got enough from his perspective to really have me give him enough benefit of the doubt.
And Georgia was definitely more interesting of a character, but I couldn't always understand who she was all the time either. But I think that's my failing, not the failing of the book. I enjoyed how different she was, how spunky and straightforward and how she saw something special in Moses.
I didn't expect all the different aspects to the story...not just the paranormal aspect, but the mystery as well. And while I could see that the mystery was going to come into play, I can say that I didn't predict the outcome to that at all. And while I knew this book was going to slay me, I don't think I knew in quite what way and so it still really got me. I'm definitely glad I packed my pockets full of kleenexes for the end of this story, b/c I used them all.
So in the end it was part 2 that really made this book for me. It was full of heartache and beauty and growth and just sucked me in and made me feel and gave me exactly what I was looking for. And now I'm definitely going to have to read Running Barefoot. Super intrigued. And that's my distracted review.
Moses Wright is the most unique character that I have had the pleasure of reading about. His gift (or curse, if you want to say that) is something out of this world. God, I need to sit down with Amy Harmon and ask her some questions. If I tell you about Moses, the story will be ruined for you. So, I will not. I’ve read of troubled characters, but nothing could have prepared me for his story. NOTHING! I am so glad that I purchased this book after reading a review a couple of months ago.
Georgia Shepherd. What to say about this young lady? She’s not one of those whiny, promiscuous girls that roam so many young adult novels. She is far from it. And though she does tend to follow Moses around and make him talk to her, I felt that it was more of that therapy creeping in. She wanted him to unleash his troubles unto her and heal him. Somewhere along the way, the feelings and longing took over. By the time I hit 20%, I thought that I knew what was coming. How wrong was I. It’s more than love at stake here – it’s life or death.
I’m not familiar with horses, and the therapy that is used in this book. From a readers standpoint, the author did an amazing job of bringing that into the story. With the paranormal elements spanning the whole book, I was mesmerized by what each page revealed. I swear I highlighted so many phrases on my Kindle while reading. There are other characters that hold the key to some jaw dropping moments. I can’t say I was surprised by who the perpetrator was. I started assuming as soon as that character was introduced. And my my my, Tag needs to be my BFF (Best Friend Forever or BoyFriend Forever – I can’t decide which). He and Moses came a long way and I’m so glad that they became such good friends. He is just awesome (and hot if I’m being honest). Hell, Moses is hot!
Long story short, this is just THE most amazing story. As much as I cried, there were some great moments in here as well. It’s dark at times, but don’t let it steer you from experiencing this amazing writing. I HIGHLY recommend this book. I will pimp it until I die!
Moses pissed me off through at least the first half of the book. He is such a complete prick toward Georgia, and all the while she’s like, “You just insulted me and repeatedly told me to leave you alone, but I know deep down you love me.” I have no patience for heroines who act like doormats, but I wound up admiring Georgia’s resilience and big heart. I enjoyed the second half more than the first.
The story seems really s-l-o-w. It’s possible my opinion of the book may be distorted by the disappointing quality of the audio book. Tavia Gilbert’s vocal performance is phenomenal. She tells the story in an extremely authentic and effective way, which makes JD Jackson’s narration even more lacking in comparison. It just falls flat, and he takes such long pauses between sentences that I kept checking to make sure my app hadn’t quit. I finally decided that it’s just his style. In the end, I looked forward to Georgia’s chapters and tolerated Moses’s.
My recommendation for potential readers is to read the book rather than listening to the audio.
