It begins with a baby left in a laundry basket at a laundromat, a "crack" baby who was named Moses,so named after another baby left in an ancient laundry basket eons ago. He grew into a child who had behavioral issues, ADD and whole constellation of "psych" labels attached to him. No family member ever really wanted to raise him, so he moved from family member to family member. He came for summers to Utah to be with his GiGi (Great-Grandmother) where Georgia would see him and be utterly fascinated with him...his unusual yellow-green eyes and bronze skin on a beautiful body growing into itself.
While he may have been in some scraps as a juvenile, the reader gets to know Moses for the first half through the blind fascination and infatuation of Georgia for him as a troubled but inherently good and even gifted boy. Georgia was a fearless horse woman and part daredevil. Moses was like an impossible lure...an impossible dare...a deep pool of water beckoning to her to jump in and chance a swim like she was forbidden to do by her parents at the pond on their property.
" Whatever it was, when Moses came to Levan, he was like water—cold, deep, unpredictable, and, like the pond up the canyon, dangerous, because you could never see what was beneath the surface. And just like I’d done all my life, I jumped in head first, even though I’d been forbidden. But this time, I drowned."
Moses at 18 was still trying to get a hold on himself. He suffered not only from compelling visions and otherworldly messages, but also the sense that he would never fit in anywhere and no one except GiGi ever truly wanted him. He compulsively paints pictures of those who have passed, onto edifices and buildings often angering the folks of Levan and casting suspicion on himself for murdering young women. After all he is different and evil looking.
He lives by his own law, "The Law of Moses" and one is: "Thou shall not love."
Georgia is persistent in her pursuit of the beautiful man child with the "panther's eyes" and finds herself succumbing to the passions of her body and heart. On the day she tells Moses that she loves him...on this same day, he finds his beloved great grandmother has died during the night and because of despairing grief, he succumbs to his demons in an incriminating way. Ultimately vanishing from Georgia's life for over seven years.
The redemption of Moses from the terror of his visions, their purpose as the subject of his art and even the beauty in the anguish and sweetness of the visions are the subject of "Part 2, After". The author delivers a master's touch at knitting the story together with all the characters. Within the framework of a love story or three love stories, if you will, there are some exciting page-turning moments to a few mysteries which, in and of themselves, tie the whole story together.
There is acute heartbreak the reader needs suffer...and it hits you hard but in a beautiful, heart rending-like way. The reader needs to suffer before there is peace in the finish of this achingly beautiful and masterfully told story.
"A story of before and after, of new beginnings and never-endings."
I love Amy Harmon. All her books are more than just stories. This one is so much more than a love story!
I am just speechless. I'm trying to think of what to write but my mind is blank.
I love the parallels between biblical Moses and Moses in this book. It's a modern day version of Moses. Georgia is such a strong character. She instantly is curious about Moses whereas the whole town is weary of him because of his mom and who he is. The way she cares for the horses and doing therapy sessions with the horse and kids was just amazing. She never backed down from whatever Moses threw at her. Even after time, she was such a strong person after going through such tragedy.
I loved seeing the characters develop especially Moses. Their reunion 7 years later was so sweet. The whole process was amazing. Eli is just so sweet.
The second half of the book was so much emotion. Plus, the whole mystery at what was happening to those girls and who did it was unexpected.
This book is like romance, drama, mystery, and everything! I can't accurately describe how amazing this book was but that everyone should read this!
I'm dying to read Song of David, Tag's story next plus I'm dying to read more about Dr Noah Andelin in Amy's new book, The Smallest Part. I can already foresee that book being so emotional!
Georgia Shepard lives in Levan Utah, where her parents use their horses for equine therapy. She is a simple girl, loves horses and she wants to be a Vet when she finishes school. Until the day she meets the boy who has moved in with his great grandmother next door.
Moses Wright was different from Georgia, people called him crazy. He was found at the local laundromat, left in a laundry basket. His mother was a crack addict. So people automatically called Moses a crack baby. The gift Moses had was more of a burden for him because most people didn't know how to understand him or the chance to show them. He painted what he saw and felt. And he believed that if he didn't love, then he wouldn't get hurt. So Moses was alone except for his great grandmother.
This is until Georgia decided she was going to be a friend to Moses, even if he didn't want one. She pushed and pulled until finally Moses gave in a little. But it was too late. Georgia was already falling in love with him and even though Moses wouldn't admit it, he was falling for her too.
When events happen and Moses is taken away, Georgia refuses to give up on him but he refuses to see her. Hoping she moves on with her life and forgets about him. After months of no word from him, she finally decides it's time to move on without him.
Then after seven years, Georgia sees Moses and it feels like she can't breath but she doesn't let him see that she is affected. While Moses is thrown for a loop and feelings he tried to hide come rushing back.
Can Georgia and Moses move on from the past and make a future together? Will he finally admit he has always loved her? Will she tell him her secret and can Moses forgive her when he learns her secret?
When I started reading I knew this was going to leave me in tears. I laughed, cried, held my breath and even prayed. I won a copy of this book a few years ago a finally took the time to read it and I wonder now why I waited so long. I can't wait to read book 2 in this series, The Song of David.
If you are looking for a new author, give Amy a try, you will not be disappointed.
