Drifters, Book Ten
“I’m telling you that I’ve been lonely, Matt. I’ve been very lonely.”
Matt Kelly has been an anchor in the Keating camp right from the start. Just as he is about to leave for Belgium to watch over Jessie on her new film shoot, his wife Julie stuns him with a difficult request. Matt is forced to make a choice he thought he would never have to make, and it catapults him into a whole new world where he must measure the true meaning of love against faith, loyalty and friendship.
Josh has been struggling since the tragedy that brought Jacob back into his and Jessie’s lives in an unexpected, violent way. Jessie hides in her new film while Jacob finds himself surrounded by unlikely allies whose presence only serves to deepen Josh and Jessie’s loneliness and struggle to remain connected.
Hanging on suddenly becomes more than just trying to move forward past old hurts. As other hearts surround the Sawyers with bitterness, defeat and pain, Josh and Jessie must find a way to rise out of the ashes, and into a future where hope is more than just a dim light on a distant horizon.
