Meredyth makes a dire mistake, the mistake of trusting Vance Everstone. Her mistake binds her to him in ways that she can’t escape from until her oldest, most dear friend Lawry comes to heal the hurt and remove the ties that bind her to a future that is unbearable.
While parts of this story drag a little more than in the first of the Everstone Chronicles, I did love this story as much as I loved the first. Meredyth is so torn up over a mistake that she’s made (one that some reader’s may find they have dealt with themselves) and the story of redemption and forgiveness is so poignant that perhaps it needed to be taken slowly.
First person POV is so difficult to do correctly and Dawn does it so well. I find first person head-invasive in most cases, but not in this series.
