For years I've been fascinated by the puzzle of why some people collapse under life's traumas and others emerge triumphantly stronger. In a job surrounded by social workers and in my personal life, I saw the effects of abuse, incest, and violence. Yet amid the stark realities of addictions, anger, abandonment, denial and betrayal shone the bright light of strength, hope and forgiveness. These triumphs of the human spirit over the ugliest of adversities became the basis for my stories. My passion for writing romance stories became an outlet for the powerful messages that people can overcome great difficulties, and that true love can turn life’s heartaches into happily ever after.

First of all, I think this book would have been much easier to follow if I had read the other books in the series. This is the fifth book in the series, and I did feel kind of lost as I tried to follow the characters and their various happenings. I do not fault the author for that at all. But I recommend reading the entire series if you choose to read this book. As to the book, I am grateful that the profanity is so minor that I almost did not notice it. And there are no sex scenes, so already I pleased to recommend this book. This is also an easy-to-read book that you can sit down and read in an evening. As a result of reading this book, I think I might like to go back and pick up the other books. I was intrigued by many of the characters, and Tallie is someone I would certainly like to know more about. The book does have romance, and the story is simple and nice. The author also throws in a few little bumps along the way to keep things interesting. If you are looking for a quick read for a quiet evening, you may wish to check out this series. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
