Leonard couldn't stop thinking about her, even though she stole his wallet. She stole more than that, his heart. Tamar couldn't stop thinking about Leonard and how she'd stolen from this man who was nothing but kind to her. They both new they were supposed to be together, but Tamar couldn't bring herself to fully trust that. Who would want a woman like her? How could she heal and let herself love a man?
In Unembraceable, we see just how much pain Tamar has been through. She was abused at a young age. Her mom had died, leaving her without family, and so she had been thrown into foster care. Every foster family had abused her in some way, and eventually she ran away, looking for a way to survive. And that way was through theft and prostitution. Something even more horrible than that happened to her, and it had caused her to be the way she was. It had stripped her dignity, purity, and left her empty. I cried when I read some of the things that she had gone through.
She meets Leonard again, and the two of them hit it off well. He's forgiven her, but she can't forgive herself. The story is about finding forgiveness and letting yourself love. But more than that, it's a statement about how foster care ruins lives by human trafficking, abuse, or kids having to prostitute themselves just to make a living after they run away.
I loved that this had a political feel because now, I want to do something about the terrible situations some girls/boys find themselves in. And we can never truly understand just how hard it is for kids to bounce back from this.
I urge you to pick up this novel today. Read it, let it soak in.
There is a subplot in the novel about a drug causing kids to act like zombies, which I really liked too, and I felt like Precarious Yates did a fantastic job of using that to break up the tension of Tamar's life. It can get heavy, and it can get dark. But it's important that we read this book and learn just how hard life can be for teens who have to deal with this.
This was an excellent story but it was also somewhat depressing. The author did a great job of bringing all the characters to life and had me cheering for some and feeling fear of others. All the action that took place in the book was vividly portrayed and I felt every rumble of the earthquakes. Descriptions of Leonardo's and Tamar's escape from different places when an earthquake would hit had me holding my breath and covering my eyes for the scenes felt so real. There were several times when Leonardo spoke to the demons in the teenagers or an angel appeared that I stopped and wondered if that could really happen. Then I felt ashamed of myself for being a Christian I know that such things can happen if God wills it and it makes me wonder what great things we could accomplish as Christians if we would only believe enough. I said the story was depressing but it was also scary for so many things in the fictional story are already happening in this country and around the world. The story did have a happy ending.
I recommend this book to all who enjoy a great Christian story that makes you think and also makes you want to live a better life.
Thanks to the author, Precarious Yates, for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
Tamar is a lost soul that was forced to live on the streets, doing what she had to do to survive. Leonardo was a God fearing man with demons of his own but willing to trust God when he heard God speak. Together the weave a story of redemption and the power of God’s love.
