Summary

How do you define yourself when others have already decided who you are?

Six years ago, when Camden Daniels came back from war without his younger brother, no one in the small town of Alba, Colorado, would forgive him - especially his father. He left, swearing never to return.

But a desperate message from his father brings it all back. The betrayal. The pain. And the need to go home again.

But home is where the one person he still loves is waiting. Willow. The one woman he can never have. Because there are secrets buried in Alba that are best left in the dark.

If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she's always loved him, and always will...

Contains mature themes.

My Best Listen for 2021

This is the second book I read by Rebecca Yarros. I had to muster up my courage, emotionally, to pick up another book of hers. She ruined me after reading The Last Letter, my heart still aches just thinking about that book. This book is no exception, it is beautifully written, well thought out, poignant love story full of heartwarming and at times gut wrenching emotions and feelings. This book has everything I enjoyed in a love story. I can’t remember the last time I bookmarked and highlighted a book so many times. The compelling and moving narrative captivated me, taking me on an emotional journey through the highs and lows of the story, I couldn’t put the book down. I fell very hard with the two main characters, their love for each other were all-encompassing from the start. Thanks to the acting talents of narrator Carly Robins and new to me narrator, Eric Michael Summerer they were able to evoked so many emotions, helped me lose myself in the book and brought the whole story to life. My best read/listen for 2021.

Amazing Story

I devoured this audio! I had a friend recommend it to me a while ago and finally got around to it... Now I am kicking myself for not reading it sooner!!

I really enjoyed everything about the characters and the story. This one will grab you and hold on until the very end.

I always enjoy Rebecca's books!

WOW! What a great story!!

First, I must say I love Rebecca Yarros’ books. I was hooked with the first book I read by her which was The Last Letter (which is still my absolute favorite of all the books I’ve read. After reading this book, I now have a second favorite book.

The story grabs you at the beginning and doesn’t let go until the last chapter. I love when this author writes characters as real people with real diseases. In this book a character has dementia. You can feel the frustration from the person’s prospective as well as the family and friends. The book brings up several important issues such as a person having a “legal” Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order in place.

You will not regret purchasing and reading this beautiful book!

Depressing story

I was half way into the story when I wrote the review and the story got more and more depressed. I listened to romance stories because I wanted to escape from life for just a little while. This story didn’t feel that way. Both narrators are my favorite readers and the reason I chose this story. That said, don’t choose stories based on the readers. If you do, you maybe disappointed.

Realistic and heartwarming

Rebecca Yarros doesn't disappoint with her awesome storytelling! The love between Camden and Willow was so strong that it held true even after big misunderstandings, heartbreaking loss, and many years apart. It was heartwarming to see how he stood by his father even when he wasn't wanted and while being mistreated by everyone. Having taken care of a family member with Alzheimers, I can honestly say that this story felt very real. All the issues that arise, all the frustration for the person going through it, but also all the pain of the family were very accurate.

Narration was great! I love Carly Robbins and while it was my first time listening to Eric Michael Summerer, I can say that I'm now a fan. Great job!
