Why does he come to her rescue and then run away? What she discovered was heartbreakingâ¦ Angie learns that forty-four year old Grayson Whitmore suffers from schizophrenia. Paranoid, he retreats into his own world. What she ended up with was a treasureâ¦ Angie is determined to get through to Grayson. They form a friendship that blazes into an inconceivable love fired with raging passion. Angie must now come to Graysonâs rescue because the wicked that has been perpetrated on him is unconscionable. First, though, she must gain the trust of a man whose mind does not allow for such a thing.
Review : This book is an easy 5 star – which for my tast could have been double in its pages … The author was very sensitive – i feel – about all issues concerning Grayson’s state of mind … There was no sugar-coating around the problems Even if I would have liked the “getting to know and trust” phase to be longer – it was still told in a way that let you connect with the leads – And where many shorter novels lack in their depth of character development – I could not feel any of that in this book I belive that it was (at least for me) obvious who was good and who was bad in that book from the beginning on – and in other books that “seethrough” might have been disturbing – but for this story it was fully ok – as the main object was “Grayson”. I can honestly say I never read something like this before and I fully enjoyed it. And believing that story will stay for me for a while – I have no problem with 5 stars …
