It took me a while to get into it, but it eventually got me.
Lori Copeland, beloved author of more than 100 books, brings a new adventure to life in her latest novel. Lyric Bolton doesn’t ask for much—just friendship and acceptance from her rural Missouri community. But her family is regarded with suspicion and fear because of her mother’s sickness—a sickness of the mind that grows worse by the day. Lyric is resigned to a life of isolation and doesn’t see any way out…but that’s before Ian Cawley bolts into her life on a runaway stallion. As she opens her heart to Ian, Lyric dares to imagine a different life. But what will happen when he discovers the secret she holds closest of all?
This book was entertaining overall. I will begin with what I enjoyed about the book. I really liked the characters of the book. Lyric and her sister Lark were very endearing and you were cheering for them and defending them from the very beginning. They went through so much and you just feel for them. The man of the book is a mystery and you really like him by the time you find out who he actually is. The story line was good and I enjoyed the idea of it, but as we go into the things I did not enjoy as much in the book, I wish it had developed a little more. It also was very slow to start and took me at least a week to get through the first five chapters because it just didn’t grab my attention as much as I would have liked it to. And as I said before, I liked the story line, but I feel that they could have done so much more with it.
Overall, it was a good book, but I would not read it again.
