When words are not enough…

Finally, Ghost’s story!! I couldn’t wait to dive into his story and find out what was behind that stoic façade… And that beard…

High drama, wild emotion – this author delivers the goods each and every time. This time was no exception as heartache, devastation and grief were balanced by the sheer joy of life and family in this stormy, stormy ride. Ghost is a shell of who he was, re-created through living and surviving a hell on earth. He lived in fear and those fears were being realized… Unless he could stop it…

“And then, there was nothing but us. Nothing but the way she felt. Smelled. Sounded.”

Ghost’s story has been percolating and saying I dove into this read was an understatement. Who was he, really? What happened to him? While the mystery was soon revealed that in no way took away from the methodical, gut-wrenching sharing of how he came to this time and place, and how those circumstances impacted everyone around him. It was harsh and hard-reading in some spots as the details quickly showed the villains’ no-holds barred depravity. There is anger and forgiveness and edge-of-your-seat suspense as all the characters were pulled into Ghost’s personal hell…

Given this read’s storyline, I wasn’t surprised that the light-heartedness was kept to a minimum but I was very happy to see it peek out now and then. And I needed it as I read this into the wee hours…

“Marriage: when dating goes too far.”

Be prepared for an emotional ride that will keep you happily riveted until the last page…
