Another heart wrenching novel from Mia. We should all come to expect that with each of her novels we are not only going to brought to tears, but we are going to be taught a lesson we didn't know we should learn.
With this one it was a hard lesson. I felt everything in this novel. The loss, the depression, the healing.
Annalia and Preston have been hurt so much. Hurt by each other, by life, and by decisions that others made for them. One night of passion, and the results tumble and build until everyone affected has broken.
This book touches on so much stuff. I don't want to give anything away. Strife that forces you to take a hard look at your soul and true struggle that makes you grateful for everything you have. Mia Sheridan weaves a world where there is hope even in the dark.
Heck, if you are a Mia Sheridan fan your re going to read this anyway, and if you aren't, go read the first book in this series. They are all standalone, but for some reason it is nice to read them in the order they were written. So do it.
Either way, read this book and feel the hurt and the healing.
There were two brothers—identical twins—and though I loved them both, my soul belonged to only one.
Annalia Del Valle has loved Preston Sawyer all her life. The daughter of an impoverished migrant farmworker, she grew up as an outcast in what was no more than a tiny, cooped up shack in California’s Central Valley. But her heart found freedom in the land, in the wide-open spaces of Sawyer Farm, and in the boys who were her only friends.
Preston has yearned for Annalia since he was a boy. But a sense of honor kept him from pursuing her until he’s unable to hold back any longer and their worlds—and bodies—collide one hot summer night. A night that sets off a chain of events that will alter their lives forever.
Now Annalia is back in town after disappearing without a trace for six long months. Determined to reclaim her heart, her life, and the baby she left behind—the son who was created in a moment of lust and love and pent-up yearning.
Preston has survived grief, a ravaging drought, and the despair of heartache, but he’s not sure he can survive Annalia again. And he might be unwilling to try. Will pride and bitterness keep him from the one thing he’s always longed for?
How do you heal what is irreparably broken? How do you forgive that which is unforgivable? How do you discover that real honor comes not from circumstance, but from the place deep in our hearts where truth resides? And how do you move beyond the wounds of the past to discover that some loves are as solid as the ground beneath your feet, and as enduring as the earth itself?
