The main, secondary, and even minor characters are well developed and realistic-- from the judge's tough stance on juvenile offenders, to Zach's teenaged reactions, to the family members coming to terms with the choices they made. The plot has many interesting twists and turns to keep you guessing what happened in the past, and what will happen next. This romance is a bit spicier than some of Ms Fasano's sweet romances--just enough to keep you fanning yourself! Usually, I have a strong feeling, negative and positive, about main characters; but in this star-crossed lovers' story, I found both Lucas and Tyne engaging, and could understand the rationale for their choices. Watching Zach accept, change, and grow, while learning about his Lenape heritage and family, was a highlight of the novel for me. I have to admit that I fell for the wonderful character, Uncle Jasper. I loved his gentle wisdom and story-telling to make points, which helped the characters accept their past decisions, and learn from them. I felt like jumping in my car and driving north, just to meet him and hear stories!
I appreciated the tying up of loose ends that Ms Fasano provided for the end of the story, and that it didn't just include a happily-ever-after for Lucas and Tyne, but satisfactory closure for all of the plot lines. Get your tissues ready for the epilogue!
When Tyne found out she was pregnant, she cut all ties from family, and friends, and left town. She worked hard to provide for her son Zach. As a single mom, she had to work a few late nights. She knew Zach was going through a hard time, but she thought it was just him being a teen. Reality came crashing down when she got a call to pick her son up at the police station…Looking at her options, she knew she had to tell his father, that he was father. It had been 16 years since she had seen or spoken to him. Luke was a Lenape Indian.
Zach only being raised by his mother, felt lost, like he didn’t belong. He had a lot of the Indian in him. He always wondered why he didn’t look like his other classmates. The puzzle pieces of his life shifted together once he met his dad Luke, and his uncle Jasper.
Racism, teen pregnancy, and hard life choices were all addressed in this book. Families were reunited for the first time after 16 years. This was a really moving story, with a lot of life lessons that were learned along the way.
Every single character is developed with honesty and compassion; from rebellious fifteen-year old Zachary Whitlock who refuses to take responsibility for his actions to Ruth Yoder who faced responsibility head-on and gave up her baby thirty years ago. I have to say Uncle Jasper was my favorite character, he is one of the reasons I love stories about Native Americans. This is not just a story about star-crossed lovers it is a journey of souls that have affected this couple as well. This is a story about accepting the past for what it is and moving forward.
The exploration of the human condition that was accomplished in this story is simply amazing. Kudos Ms. Fasano, if I could give you ten gold stars I would.
This book contains adult language and situations that may be offensive to some. The editing and formatting were excellent, I found no issues.
