What makes Faith so different? Why is she on auto-disconnect whenever someone tries to get too close? She has shrouded her heartbreaking past behind a wall of repression, but the wall is slowly crumbling, as black memories strip her desperate hold on normalcy bare. Will the strength of one man help her through? Will she learn to accept love without fear of losing it or being abandoned? Evil is lurking in the shadows, once again, and it has set its sights on Faith. Wildflower by Janine Carbone is an edgy and intense look at life for one young woman who hasn’t been gifted with the strength to move forward and grab life by the horns, hanging on for what could be the ride of a lifetime. Faith knows she has feelings for Jason, but keeps her emotional distance from a man who wears his heart on his sleeve for her. By the time she dares to venture into a real relationship, once again, her world is shattered by a deranged rapist/killer who knows far too much about her past to have picked her at random. Will she find the strength to fight back? Just when she finds the joy and love that life brings, she may lose everything, including her life. They say there is power in words, and Janine Carbone packs a punch that will leave you breathless, on the edge of seat as you follow Faith’s dark journey. Carefully setting her world in place, filling it with atmosphere and well-developed characters, Ms. Carbone leads us down a dark and uneven trail that will end in a burst of energy and conflict that left me floored. To say I did NOT see that superb ending coming and piercing my brain with tension, would be an understatement. Looking for some jagged edges in your reading, want to skip the fluff and feel the story? Try Wildflower and be amazed how that that slow pull in becomes completely magnetic.
