The Blurb—I wasn’t given a choice. Not when I did my first line of cocaine. Not when I became a single mother. But I changed, and every decision I’ve made was to protect myself and my son from my weaknesses—and my past.Until Jude came along and made me question everything, even my own secrets.The sins I carry with me can never be discovered. Life handed me broken bits of people and left me to construct my own world, and it’s too fragile to take a chance on Jude Mercer.We write our own stories.
We build our own prisons.
We weave our own lies.
We commit the sins that bind us.
What a powerful story. Geneva Lee takes the reader on a soul searching journey as she places a mirror in front of us with the tale of these two flawed individuals.
Faith first sees Jude when he walks into her support group. He looks like a typical bad boy. She vows to steer clear.
Life never works out how you planned.
I don’t want to rehash the plot. This one is best if you go in blind. I can tell you that it gripped me immediately, and raised plenty of questions along the way, not only about the characters, but about life choices in general.
The story is written in first person POV, but flashbacks, written in third person, fill in the back story. I found the shift a little off putting at first. But these scenes help to fill in the blanks. They may be confronting and shocking, but honestly, the drip feed of information is so skilfully done I enjoyed every minute of this book.
These two captured my heart and my sympathies. I’d love to read more by this author.
