The young and impetuous Lucinda Williams, through a series of bad
decisions, is now in a situation she never dreamed conceivable—an
unplanned baby and marriage to a man who proves to be far darker than
she ever imagined. Pain is a cruel teacher but brings instant maturity.
Joseph Manning, a childhood friend who watched the love of his life leave, is heartbroken to find the bruised waif of a girl he rescues less than a year later. What atrocities did she experience to change the vivacious, bubbly soul into this shell of hopelessness? Broken. Bruised. Beaten. Does love really have the power to heal all wounds?
Lucinda marvels at how Joseph effortlessly whittles his way back into her heart and that of her child with kindness and respect. But she has a secret far too dark to allow the kind Joseph into her life. He deserves so much better than the likes of her. Is love strong enough to break down the barriers of bad choices? Can a second chance at happiness really be possible?
About The Author
From beginning to end this read held my attention, now I have read the previous two books in this series, and you might want to pick them up! The author does a good job of keeping you updated on the previous reads!
This is Lucinda’s and Joseph’s story, childhood friends, but Lucinda, still a teenage, is headstrong and is charmed by dashing Nat, and many warn her, but, will it be too late for her to come to her senses?
The author gives us a real page-turner, and you really won’t see all that is about to happen, so many emotions are in play.
From bad choices to sweet romance, from violence to caring, we are gifted with a story that keeps on giving, and now I can’t wait for Grace’s story!
I received this book from the author, and was not required to give a positive review.
