Ricochet In Time dealt with a subject that I personally have troubles understanding - hate crimes. I was terribly moved by the story of Danielle Corbett. Lori takes us from that fateful day that started out as a peaceful drive in the country for Dani and Meg, and turns into a nightmare at the hands of a person so full of hate and intolerance that he thinks nothing of mowing these people down on a deserted road and leaving them for dead.
This story follows the results of this person's actions; how Dani comes to terms with the loss of Meg, and her inability to allow people to help her when she needs them the most.
There are some very strong characters in this story. Right from Dani down to the three strangers (Grace, Ruth and spunky Estelline) that are willing to help Dani heal both physically and mentally from the accident that brought them together, the criminal trial and from the events in her past that prevent Dani from letting anyone get close to her emotionally before feeling the need to run away.
I can't say enough about how good an author I think Lori Lake is. I found this book to be very thought provoking and even long after having read the last word, I find myself thinking back to how this book had touched on so many emotions.Read more ›
The main thrust of this story is the aftermath of a hate crime, but it is so much more than that. Simply put, this is a story that will amuse, anger, sadden and grab you on so many levels, you'll be hooked.
This story touched me deeply. It starts off with an overwhelming tragedy. Dani and her partner, Meg, are the victims of a vicious hate crime. I felt the pain and guilt that Dani went through. She survived, her partner did not. This, then, is the story of the aftermath of the tragedy and the healing power of love.
The characters turned out to be wooden and never developed beyond the surface. After awhile, the dialogue became boring and trite. The story meanders on with frequent pointless details.
Maybe my expectations were just too high.
