I read an amazing review of this book by Sammy Goode, and bought the book straight off. Ah, the power of word-of-mouth.
Loved, just loved this story, about people we so seldom see. With beautiful language and turns of phrase that hit me just so.
”You came back to that rock and looked for me, out on the water. I think you want a new friend, too.”
Courage, when you realize you can no longer do nothing – but you still haven’t figured out what you can do.
We need more stories like this one, to lift us up, to see that it is possible to change, it is possible to take a road less traveled.
And that it is possible that other people’s truths are just as valid as your own. Only different.
Simply loved it. Warmly recommend it, especially as there was next to no sex in there, and sweet and slow, what was there.
*** Bought this book with my own monies after reading a smashing review.***
“You were as much in prison as anyone I knew there, Colin. Only you created it for yourself. Your father paced out the cell and your brothers fit the bars and you turned the key in the lock and buried it somewhere only you know. And you stared at Daniel through the bars and cursed him for being able to walk out the door. But he’s not the one who did something wrong. All he did was save himself. And you can too. But you have to find that key and unlock the door.”
