Wow! I have chills at the end of this book. The drama that this author brought to pages gave me tears. I can not believe the twisty path this has taken. It is interesting how at the beginning of the book I didn’t like Joel. Then it became Clancy. But now I can see the bond they share as more of the story moves along. A lifetime of struggles. They are so intertwined. The happy times the sad times and the twisted times. I know that sometimes life stinks but for these boys it is a pile of manure. They author did a great job of making me *feel* for the characters.
I am NOT a fan of stories going back and forth in time. So I had my hackles raised from the beginning. I did not care for it at times but in the end it all rolls along perfectly and I can see why the author did this.
I really ended up loving this story and the characters (although I’m heartbroken about them). It’s a wondrous ride filled with mystery, drama and suspense. I highly recommend this book!
