"Ryan's Father" by June Foster
This book hooked me from the first sentence, there was an earthquake at Starbucks! That's what is so great about this story, it isn't about a earthquake, but the earthquake pulls you in. Ryan is a schoolteacher and in this earthquake he meets a nurse! It's your typical love story, Right!
Well, this isn't your average love story because Ryan has homosexuality thoughts about his best friend. Both of these guys are Christian and the friend has no idea of Ryan's thoughts.
This story is beautifully written and really makes the reader understand Ryan and his struggles and the thoughts and actions of the other characters in this book!
Ryan also works a summer job and has problems there as well, and Sandy's dad, the nurse, is against Ryan because he isn't rich enough! Sandy has her own secrets as well, why is she afraid of the dark?
This novel is full of heartaches and forgiveness and it makes you think before you are quick to judge others!
I won't tell you that Ryan's story ends well or not, you MUST read this story yourself to FIND OUT, but I will tell you that you won't feel like you wasted your time after reading it and I think the characters will stay with you long after you close the book!
I was given a ebook copy of this book for my honest review!
