Tank has always been an enigma in this series. Standoffish and hard, the story of his brutal childhood has been alluded to, but not explored until now. His fierce protectiveness serves him well in his job as deputy sheriff of the area and he has shown his own brand of kindness in spite of what others think of him. Chrissy is a new arrival in Sweetgrass. She's escaping her past of a drunk and abusive husband , hoping for a good life for her and her two children.
Tank is a reluctant protector to the new family. Scared by his attraction to Chrissy and her kids, he is nonetheless constantly drawn to them. They respond to him with love and respect. The normally welcoming town treats Tank like a pariah, and he expects nothing less. Chrissy recognizes his solitude and his inner struggle.
The side stories of the other residents and the new couple in Chrissy' s sister Laura and her doctor husband Jake add a depth and humanity to this story that is amazing to read. The heartfelt situations and responses often brought tears to my eyes. Tank' s redemption in this book is gratifying and rewarding. As you read, you'll find the theme of redemption extends to others, including the town itself. Completely satisfying.
Tank, who as a child stepped between his physically abusive father and his mother and little sister, has always thought himself unlovable and doesn't let anyone close because he thinks he will be like his father. Chrissy is having none of that and goes out of her way to prove Tank and the rest of the town wrong.
I have read most of this series and liked them all, but this one was more real (and harder to read) than all the rest. My heart ached for Tank and several times I teared up.
I highly recommend this series.
