Blurb : She’s the only one who ever loved him—and the only one he can never have.Jude lost everything one spring day when he crashed his car into an apple tree on the side of the road. A man is dead, and there’s no way he can ever right that wrong. He’d steer clear of Colebury, Vermont forever if he could. But an ex-con in recovery for his drug addiction can’t find a job just anywhere.For Sophie Haines, coming face to face with the man who broke her heart is gut-wrenching. Suddenly, he’s everywhere she turns. It’s hard not to stare at how much he’s changed. The bad boy who used to love her didn’t have big biceps and sun-kissed hair. And he’d never turn up volunteer in the church kitchen.She knows it’s foolish to yearn for the man who returned all the heartsick letters she wrote him in prison. But the looks he sends her now speak volumes.No one wants to see Sophie and Jude back together, least of all Sophie’s police chief father. But it’s a small town. And forbidden love is a law unto itself.
Review : Sometimes you are so drawn to a plot without paying attention to the author that it is only when you start writing the review that you realize you have read books by this author before. Now I remember that I read “The Year we fell down” and I really loved the writing style of this author.
So now its no wonder to me any more how comfortable I felt reading “Steadfast”. The writing style is great and very emotional – so yes it is a gut – wrenching story – have your tissues ready. But it is good the way it is.
The characters are so deeply developed that I really felt for both of them.
I could relate to Jude – and his guilt in the same way I could to Sophie and her broken heart.
But there is more to this story than a simple second chance. Readers will find suspense when they least expect it and not always everything is as it seems
Please enjoy this book because I can hardly wait for the next in this series ..
I already checked out the Blurb and loved it.
