Oh, how it was. I was so drawn into Jack and Bronte’s lives, their pasts and present, that there were tears shed for both. I cried for their losses, their broken dreams, and the betrayals faced. I cheered for each of Bronte’s victories (with Jack’s help, of course) against those trying to kill her, wanted to throttle Jack’s wife for all the abuse she put the man through, her trampling of his emotions and the vicious way she tried to frame him for her murder.
I could go on about this all night, but I won’t. I will, however, say if you’re looking for a book with depth and emotion, one that tugs at your heart-strings and delivers an ending that makes you think, “That was perfect, just perfect.” Then this is just such a book.
Since the past life of Bronte Devlin as well as her present one has been filled with heartache, she feels there will be little joy in her future. Yet when she is hit by a car and her face is severely injured, she wants to live and consents to a doctor’s strange proposal. The offer leads to her taking on the identity of a Texas woman who has much to hide. With the other woman being married, Bronte is eventually confronted by Jack West as he thinks she is his wife.
After way too many years locked up in prison for an offence that was not committed by him, Jack is finally once again free. But his time in jail has hardened him, and he blames his wife for her part in letting him be accused. When the two met, Jack notices the behavior of Bronte is much different from what he remembers, so questions keep mounting up.
The author certainly does not make it easy for Jack and Bronte, as they have one heated confrontation after another. Both feel they are very alone in the world, and sometimes this belief has them reacting with anger because of their hurtful pasts. It also has them craving kindness from another person, and this causes some impulsive choices. Lots of insight into the reasons for their current way of thinking let me come to understand this couple much better, and though I did not always agree with their actions, I could empathize with them. Plenty of uncertainties add confusion to the lives of Jack and Bronte, and I really felt for them and all they had to experience. SECRET CHILD is the eighth book in the thrilling Texas: Children of Destiny series, and the intriguing details kept me captivated.
I voluntarily reviewed the book from the author, and all comments are my honest opinion
I used to read Ann Major’s books many years ago, and most of them were romances. In fact, this beautiful cover seems to hint that this book will also be a romance. So, I was pleasantly surprised when, as reading Secret Child, I realized that this book actually falls into the suspense genre!
This story grabbed my interest from the Prologue. Bronte Devlin is visiting New York where her famous, beautiful and talented mother raised her. Unfortunately, Bronte’s mother made her life miserable byconstantly belittling her for her lack of looks and talent.
We also find out in this chapter, that Bronte is divorced and her son, Jimmy, had died during the marriage.
The Prologue ends when Bronte accidentally gets hit by a cab when she is pushed into the street. She is thrown into the air, and, when she falls back to earth, she lands face first onto the gravel. The damage to her face is extensive, and thought to be beyond repair. However, Webster Quinn, a famous plastic surgeon, happens to be at the scene of the accident, and decides that he will repair her face.
The other main character, Jack West, has spent years in prison for killing his beautiful wife. He lives with his wife’s mother who took him in when he was a penniless and lonely youth. She her daughter is still alive, asks Jack to look for her.
Believe it or not, all of this happened in the Prologue!!
What happens next is much misunderstanding, misjudgment and miscommunication that causes problems among all of the main and secondary characters in this book. There is plenty of suspense and adventure throughout this novel which is very spellbinding. Also, the main characters, Bronte and Jack, are both damaged, physically and emotionally, which I found to be riveting and heartrending.
This book is totally different from the other books I had read from this author years ago. However, it is filled with an in-depth suspense-filled plot which includes lots of twists and turns. I
I, thoroughly, enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!
