I am going to review this book as one entire story – I hadn’t read the books separately before so it makes sense for me to just look at the whole picture
When Isla lost her parents her perfectly ordered and nurturing home life were ripped from her and she living with members of her family that I wouldn’t trust to sit the right way round on the toilet, let alone bring up a child. And I was devastated as the true extent of their disgraceful behaviour unfolded because I hate it in cases like this when I’m right.
The way they treated Isla was completely reprehensible they effectively strip her bare of all her humanity and hold her prisoner, but as if that wasn’t bad enough they physically abuse her – if I could have reached into the story and plucked her from the pages I would have, I read much of the details with a constant stream of tears trickling down my face.
But then you have Joshua, now I liked him, I wanted him to be strong and he was, he listened to his heart and was willing to do what it was going to take to find out the truth and a way to get Isla back. Joshua has a history with Isla but he has long since accepted that she was dead, that the little girl he loved when he was a boy has gone.
But when he bumped into “Rosa” he couldn’t shake the feeling that she wasn’t who she said she was, that there was more to her story than she was telling him. He just would not let the doubt go, he could rest until he found out – he had to know if the woman he could see before him, was the Isla he lost so long ago?
Just how far would he go? Well how long is a piece of string – he was willing to do whatever it took uncover the truth, but would her past be willing to let her go or were they destined to part ways again?
Could he show her the sort of love that she deserved, that she should have had all her life?
Would they or could they survive the upheaval that was to come?
Yes there were a slew of questions and theories throughout the book, there were characters that were a disgrace to humanity, people who although they personified evil were given the good grace to exhibit their personalities in the understanding that as the reader, we needed to experience the bad in order to be able to appreciate the beautiful.
And Isla and Joshua were just that, they were impossible not to love.
I loved the prose and lilt of the story, the intensity that was injected and the emotion that flowed. This is a novel that will keep you engaged from beginning to end, it isn’t the easiest of read in parts as some of the subject matter is difficult but through the tears, I have to say that I thought the story was superb.
We meet Isla Holmes who grew up in a loving home with loving parents. But her life is turned upside down when her parents are taken away far to soon and she is sent to live with other family members. These family family members are pure evil with a capital E.
The evil family members treat Isla like a prisoner and hold her hostage, the poor girl is stripped of all her humanity. The abuse that she goes through had me in tears whilst i was reading it.
We meet Joshua (Joshie) who has always been in love with Isla. After believing that Isla is dead Joshua has built walls around his heart not letting anybody has the only thing that would repair his heart is if Isla suddenly returned but that would mean coming back from the dead which is impossible until one day changes everything.
Joshua meets a girl that goes by the name of Rosa he is convinced that she is in fact that Isla and there's a lot more to Rosa then she is letting on. Joshua is like a dog with a bone he will not let this go as he really needs to know if Rosa is in fact Isla the girl that he has been in love with since they were kids and still loves to this day.
Joshua and Isla are finally reunited and the love that felt for each other as kids is still there now they have grown up. But their happiness is short lived when before evil comes knocking at the door and catches up with Isla and Joshua.
Will their love be strong enough to survive what evil is thrown at them? Will Joshua be able to save the only girl that he's only ever loved and show her what its like to be loved?
This is a dark twisted read that brought me to tears. If your not into dark reads then i am afraid to say that this book isn't book for you.
