But with the discovery of a forgotten stone wall comes the enlightenment that a better life exists beyond the property line, which has been her prison. Serendipity introduces her to Gavin, a young adult with the scared mind of child who sees everything, and always analyzes correctly.
They help each other through their unique situation, which leads them both to find that, perhaps, love really does conquer all.
I don't the know if the author planned it this way, but I found it interesting in the role alcohol played, and how it changed a couple of the characters personalities. It was a cool to witness, and begs the question, who are we and what are we really capable of, both good and bad.
When an accidental meeting grows into a special friendship, broken teens find a way to overcome dark secrets that haunt their lives. This is a story of triumph over evil. I wish everyone would read this subtle reminder of kindness and empathy because we never know what others are facing.
Over the Ivy Wall is a story of love and, unfortunatley, abuse. Clara is fearful of what her uncle will do, which holds her captive as surely as the physical locks and walls around their home. Clara has much to overcome in order to be free and Live. Then there is Gaven, the love interest. He is held captive by his past mistakes and the inability to feel emotions easily. His journey isn't as difficult as Clara's, but it is just as important.
This novella is short and sweet. However, I had some problems with the short part. Overcoming the mental effects of abuse is not an easy or fast process. And showing Clara falling instantly in love and being totally okay with physical touch with her boyfriend seems a little far fetched. I believe it would be a bit harder for her to come to that point, not to mention the controversial "love-at-first-sight" that appears to have occurred. I do believe the story was meant to be short, in which case the characters had to come to a happy ending in the few pages available. But I still think something could have been done to make the story more realistic.
I did enjoy Over the Ivy Wall, and I recommend it to fans of sweet contemporary romance.
I received a complementary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
Clara hasn't seen the outside of her Uncle's home since he took her in after her parents' death. He is cruel, abusive and controlling. When hiding one day, she stumbles on Gaven, who is walking on the other sided of the wall. Gaven helps her see the situation she is in is not normal and helps her find the courage to escape. Gaven struggles with emotions so the straight talking is what Clara needs.
This was a difficult issue dealt with sensitively and slightly differently to what I expected. It was fate that brought these two together but it was the similarity of the characters and where they are emotionally. It was a read that will stay with you long after the last word has been read.

Gavin Bridge is a teenager with asperger syndrome and doesn’t fit in. He is sent to live with his uncle in Clearwater. He thinks he will always be alone because he takes medication that numbs him. He doesn’t have emotions or feelings like others do.
Clara is always searching for hiding places from her uncle. Her uncle drinks and then sneaks in her room and touches her inappropriately. She doesn’t understand why he does this and why does her aunt seem to turn her head. She also finds out that the uncle is doing the same thing to his daughter.
She decides to find a hiding space outside on the property and finds a great area with brush and trees by the wall that marks the property she isn’t allowed to leave. She falls asleep and wakes up to Gavin starring at her. They talk and instantly are friends. Neither Clara nor Gavin has ever had any real friends so when Gavin asks Clara what she is hiding from she confides in him. He decides she needs help and convinces her to talk to his uncle. Read on to see what happens to Clara and Gavin?
I really liked this story it is well written even though it is about a terrible thing that happens to family members being abused. I like the friendship that grows between Clara and Gavin. It is young love in bloom. Clara gets Gavin and he wonders why. Is it because she is broken or has issues of her own. He doesn’t care though. He wants to help her and be with her. They rescue each other. The interaction between them is heartwarming. It is great to find out there is someone for you out there.
I highly recommend this book.
