4.5 Stars! Many character's in this book, and I feel in love with all them. It did start out slow for me so that it why I gave it 4.5 stars. You will feel every raw emotion you have, like being on a roller coaster - some highs in life and some lows. There is lovemaking, not very descriptive, but you could feel the passion. With that being said (lovemaking), one of the character's is a minister and talks to God. If you are turned off by that be warned, but I found it to be cleaver in how the author brings God into the picture. All the character's bring something different to the story. There is wife abuse, that is described after the fact for one of the couples. I loved how Joe turned is life around, which he had to work very hard at getting to that point. This is a wonderfully written story. I loved the ending, but wished their was more written about Annie and Joe at the end. Highly recommend! (ljb)

This triptych of a romance marks yet another triumphant attempt by under-rated writer Kathryn Shay. Earnest and constantly moving, Trust In Me tells of the struggle of the rebellious Outlaw gang growing up in Glen Oaks after the group was disbanded and reunited a decade later. Much have occurred: Joe Murphy returns as a reformed husband and seeks forgiveness from ex-wife Annie who is traumatized by his past abuse. Linc who is now a pastor is afraid to marry Margo who swears anathema to God and his beliefs - an imprint left by her pious mother. Tucker Quaid, a retired NASCAR racer decides to mitigate his guilt of causing Beth her husband in a racing tournament by developing the industry in Glen Oaks. He faces the wrath of her son Ronny but gains unexpected solace and a chance of love in the widow. Under-rated Kathryn Shay sculpts her characters with emotional delicacy and packs compelling human drama to deliver an enriching story of love and its healing power.

It is rare when you find a story that meshes 6 peoples lives as seamlessly as does this one. The talks between Linc and his God have got to be amongst the funniest in print. I especially liked Joe and Annie's tale and would have liked that story longer or maybe Ms. Shaw will continue the story at a later date. While reading this book you are definately part of the story along with the characters. You can feel their pain, love and most espcially their indecisions. I felt right at home with them and rooted for them every step of the way.

Years ago, a group of young people formed a group called the Outlaws. Time and trajedy have separated them. Now, they are coming together again. .... Linc had been a bad boy, but found God and became a pastor, in the process separating himself from Margo, the love of his life. The longing for each other has never faded though, and now they both will face a critical moment where their relartionship to one another and to God will have to be resolved. .... Beth's husband died in an auto racing accident, leaving her son fatherless and troubled. The man responsible, or who rather felt responsible, has returned home, and represents her son's best shot at having the help he needs. What lies between them is another thing. ....... Finally, Annie find that she has to face the man who abused her and almost caused her to lose her child. Joe Murphy claims to have reformed, but has he? Does he stand a chance with his fragmented family or not?.... *** Although each story would have been better served in its own book, each one of them is a moving tale of friendship, the truest form of love. Linc and Margo's story particularly will appeal to fans of Father Greeley, where God is the most interesting character, and the one with the best sense of humor. *** REVIEWED BY AMANDA KILLGORE.

In Glen Oaks, New York, retired racing car champ Tucker ¿Menace¿ Quaid comes to town to try to revive the flailing track. He accepted the invitation of the town leaders because he feels guilty that ten years ago his driving caused the death of a local rival Danny Donovan. Danny¿s teenage son Ron hates Tucker and slashes the visitor¿s vehicle. The police arrest Ron for the vandalism, but his mom Beth and his Uncle Linc Grayson intercede. When Tucker learns who the teen is he wants to let him go because he blames himself for the lad¿s troubles. Shockingly, neither Beth nor Linc accuse him of negligence. Tucker¿s presence leads to Ron spinning further out of control. Adding to his woes is that his mother and his father¿s killer are falling in love. The members of the Outlaws, a former gang of disenfranchised teens in the early 1980s, are divided with what Tucker did to one of them and the support he receives from their former leader Linc and his sister Beth. This contemporary romance provides the audience with a strong psychological look at the surviving five members of the Outlaws, Ron, and Tucker. Each one of these seven characters carries tons of baggage with their ability to cope and adapt varying. That makes for a deep read, but the complexity of so much mental stress is difficult to follow. Readers will trust in Kathryn Shay to provide a thought-provoking novel that focuses on how nurturing makes the adult complete. Harriet Klausner
