Being different, or being called different, makes you feel different. Different is not worse than although sometimes that is what we believed. Being different is not good and it’s not bad. This story fascinated me because being different can make you brave and strong and this has been captured beautifully in this story. A wonderful read.
I knew when I started reading this book, that I would get my heartstrings tugged at, more than once, it being an Amanda Prowse book. I was right :)
Thomasina "Hitch" is a woman living on a remote farm who has had to overcome more challenges than most. Her parents, not surprisingly, have wanted to wrap her up in their love and make sure that she is safe, at all times. Of course, love can feel smothering sometimes and it takes her parents a little while to realise that Thomasina is a grown woman and capable of much more than they give her credit for. Grayson Potts is the man who comes to stay at her family B & B and within hours, it is clear that the two of them have a very special bond. He has also not had the easiest life, has also been bullied and been made to feel "less than".
Gray and Thomasina are such lovely people and I wanted to throw my arms around the pair of them and make sure that neither of them are hurt again. However, real life is not like that and they have a lot of things to get through, both separately and together. Overall though, this book is full of hope and love, and pushing through and achieving great things - just wonderful.
Loved everything about this book.
I don't often give 5 stars for my reviews, but this novel was worth each one.
I know that this is my first read from Amanda Prowse but it definitely won’t be my last!
I know that my heart is warmed from reading this beautiful love story.
I know that I’m very sad that I can’t keep reading this book.
A love story between two awkward misfits who met by chance and together brought out the best in each other and enriched not just their own lives but the lives of those around them. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the storyline and would highly recommend this book and author to others.
