About the book:
Her past left her wounded, but he has the power to heal—
Nina Anderson is lucky to be alive. After years of abuse at the hands of her boyfriend, she’s finally free. Determined to get back on her feet, she’s left her past behind for a fresh start on her grandparents’ farm is Despair, Kansas. Even though, Jeremy, the man who’d abused her is in prison fifteen-hundred miles away, Nina is still haunted by dark memories.
Then a mysterious, unearthly man appears, bringing her the respect she’s always want – and maybe even a chance at love. He’s been sent to serve as Nina’s protector and to help her with an event that is to occur in the near future. The catch is, Liam doesn’t know what it is or when it will take place. Will he have the power to save her and restore Nina’s faith in God?
A compelling look at life for an abuse victims.
I am usually hesitant to read paranormal stories. I’m very glad that I chose to read this one though. The non-human character, Liam, is very gentle and caring and only around to help Nina through a terrible ordeal. I thoroughly enjoyed the description of him and how Nina was drawn to him because of his appearance. The way the mystery about his background and where he came from was excellent.
I found Nina to be very well-developed. I found that I was extremely invested in her and wanted to see her healed from all of the emotional wounds caused by the abuse she had suffered in the past. Some of the sections where she was reliving the abuse either in dreams or in sharing it with Liam were very hard for me to read. That was only because of the great amount of detail that the author provided. They were very eye opening for me.
I have decided to give this wonderful story a rating of 5 stars. I am highly recommending it. If you don’t normally read paranormal stories I ask you to consider giving it a try with this book.
