This is Grant and Kelly’s story as well as Robin and BJ’s story. This story deals with a difficult issue of parents’ acceptance of their children when they choose to walk down a path alien to their parents’ wishes and desires for them. As a mother myself I have often pondered on what I would say to my child if they came home and told me they loved or was dating someone of the same sex. Would I disown my child because I found it hard to relate to their choice or would I choose to love my child and try to understand what was happening in their lives?
Well this story explores this theme of unconditional love and two parents struggle to come to terms with their children’s choice. They have to make a decision to love their children and try to understand their issues or lose their children.
This is a love story between Grant and Kelly but it is a love story about their children too. I found the story riveting and totally thought provoking. It caused me to stop and thinking. It also gave me ideas about how to handle the situation if I ever found myself in this position.
Another story outside the box for me which I absolutely enjoyed! I love it when an author uses real life issues and creates a story around that issue that impacts your life and the way you view that issue. I was enthralled by the journey that the story took me on and the impact on other family members and how they react to the issue that the parents are grappling with!
Well done Ms Knowles a powerful and most engrossing story. I would highly recommend this book!
It is wonderful that Grant had sense enough to hang on to Kelly. The world is not a pretty place sometimes. It is hard to grow up with all the prejudices, bullying, racism, closed mind, scared people in it. Thank you for this book. This is a great book.
I liked the storyline but it was more about her son and his relationship and finding himself. The main characters were secondary to the story and there was very little romance at all. I didn't like the hero either, he comes off as unsure and timid. The heroine was a know-it-all and I couldn't relate at all. In short, this book was not about the two main characters getting to know each other and building a relationship.
Grant had a hard time understanding Kelly's actions, but soon found out that he had a bigger issue to deal with that affected his son. He realized that their lives were more intertwined than he thought possible.
This story deals with a serious social issue that affected both their sons and their reaction to it. There was another secondary story that revealed deception by Grant's family member, that was totally unexpected.
I love the way the author navigated the complexities in the story and gave Grant and Kelly their HEA in the end.
