This book made my heart cry at the beginning. I hate abusive stepfathers and at the start of this book I thought we was going to be reading about a rape scene, but I am happy to say we don't. Tess was able to get away. 

I was kept reading this till the end. It was a really inspiring book as Tess was reminded all through the book that God was with her and I especially liked that Bible verses was part of the story. 

This was a story of evil that men are capable of because of greed. 

I couldn't help speed reading through this book because I just had to know how it ended. I waned  to read more about Brett and Tess.

This was the first book that I have read by this author but I hope to read others by him soon. 

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

More from Andrew

The American West has always fascinated me with ruggedly beautiful landscapes and the indomitable spirit of the pioneers.  When building the Transcontinental Railroad, nothing could stop the people from their goal. This innovation and tenacity has shaped our soul, our character as a nation. This deep sense of perseverance encourages me through the tough times we face today.


To our God and Creator, able to transform lives and redirect paths. Thank you, Savior.
