I had a choice, and I chose wrong.
I thought I lost everything. But when the smoke finally cleared, I discovered that I wasn’t alone.
Father Sullivan was a force – a living and breathing force, a forbidden desire I couldn’t resist. I didn’t want to resist. But I wasn’t the only one who wanted him, and by all accounts neither of us should have him.
I had decisions to make, secrets to uncover. Both would tear my heart, my life, and what was left of my family apart.
I wasn’t going to take any chances this time around. If I’d learned one thing during my life, it’s that death is the only certainty. It’s a matter of when, not if. For every action, there is a reaction. For every choice, a consequence.
If I hadn’t chosen to live again, I would have never known what life could be like …

Wow! I don't know where to start. This book made me laugh and cry. I felt joy, sadness, anger. And everything in between. I was in awe of the resilience exhibited by Grace. I was totally shocked by certain events. I was all over the place with my feelings. The one feeling I never experienced was being depressed. This story deals with a tragic life event and the aftermath. It could have been dark and brooding. It wasn't. This story makes it very clear we all have choices at every point in our lives. Sometimes, we are lucky and make the right choice. Other times we are not so lucky. Either way, we have to live with the consequences. We don't have to let those consequences define the rest of our lives. We have a choice in how we react to the consequences our choices create. Sometimes, we even get a chance to change our choice. With The Father is not a typical romance story. The plot is unlike any of the romances I have read in a long time. It has twists, turns, and shocking revelations. There is a point when I said " No, no! This can't be happening!" After I really thought it over, I came to see the event in a different light. I had to wait a day to write this review because of that but...I can't explain it without a spoiler. Just take my word for it--the author knew what she was doing. It is well-written and the characters are complex, well-developed individuals. I cared about the characters and what happened to them. The writing is concise, straight-forward, to the point. I found it very thought-provoking. With The Father is a stand-alone story. However, there is a short novella follow-up story, With The One. I highly recommend you get both of them. I wasn't able to totally wrap my mind around the ending until I read the novella. I absolutely recommend this book. It was utterly fantastic. I'd give it more than 5 Stars if I could!
This was no what I was expecting. This story started out innocent enough. The main character is involved in a tragedy and she has to pick up the pieces of her life. The story had mystery, betrayal and a beautiful romance. Moen writes the story in different points of view. I loved that, because I got a better idea of the individual characters inner struggles and motivations. The ending was very unexpected. I did not see it coming! However, for me it was wonderful. It was the ending I would of wanted if I was Grace. This was a beautiful story of never ending love. When it was all over I was in tears. Happy tears of course, but I was left so emotional after. This is one of my favorite reads of the year!
