Orion and Tammy's story was emotional and incredibly moving.
Both come from dysfunctional families, and are suffering in different ways but when they meet they find comfort and love. Two broken people, see and feel each other's pain. Can they help each other to heal?
A powerful yet emotional book and I really liked it. My heart broke for both Orion and Tammy but I liked the fact that they support one another despite their own issues.
This is the first Clearwater novel I've read. I was pleasantly surprised with the sensitive way chronic pain and also sexual abuse were dealt with. Having come late to this series, I am not familiar with what has happened before. However, in this book, Clara and Tammy have moved away from the estate owned by Tammy's father. They are living together in a small apartment across town. Clara is attending the local high school, while Tammy has decided to get her GED. As they become used to living on their own, Tammy begins questioning her life. Was she the cause of her father's abuse? What does she want to do with her life? Why has she never had a breakdown? Is there something wrong with her? As she begins exploring the answers to these questions, she meets Orion, a young man with plenty of problems of his own, including Trigeminal Neuralgia, known as the most painful disease on earth. As they begin a relationship, they each need to learn about each other and how to deal with the other's problems.
I really enjoyed this book, in spite of not reading the previous books in the series. I don't recommend reading it as a standalone though because I'm sure I would have gotten a better idea of what was going on if I had read the other books in the series. It was very well written, and the situations in the book were entirely believable. I haven't seen sexual abuse dealt with this sensitively before. There weren't any graphic details, which I really liked. I don't think things like that have to go into detail as long as the rest of the story is strong enough to describe the aftermath. Chronic pain, another taboo subject, is also handled well. The descriptions of what Orion felt were well thought out and descriptive enough that the reader got a good idea of what he was dealing with. As a survivor of abuse and someone who lives with chronic pain, I couldn't find any fault with both issues described in this book. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because I would have liked it to be longer.
