Pain punished her.The bottle numbed her.Guilt kept her trapped.In the dark alley of a pub, the words âPlease donâtâ take hold of her heart and break the silence she seeks. Thinking herself beyond redemption, she tentatively grabs on to the slim thread of hope that unfolds inside of her.Holding her secrets close, she canât resist the comforting draw coming from The Skipper. The unconditional friendships it offers, the protective roof it provides, and the spark that its owner ignites in herâmelting the frost off her heart, and slowly stripping away her resistance.His life flows from one crisis to the next. Under the pressure of competition crowding him out of his familyâs pub and the need to protect his children from the ruins of a bad marriage, he barely breathes. That is until a mane of strawberry-blonde hair and a set of big, pale blue eyes, shake him up.He never expected the shadow of a woman he finds on the floor of his washroom to bring him the airâthe balance and the light heâs been missing.
âFrom Dustâ by Freya Barker is one of those special books. One of those whose plotline and characters remain with you for days after you finished it. I loved the plot and the writing is solid. The characters are deep and I could feel for and with them every step along the way. Yes â maybe the storyline is predictable in some ways â BUT it is beautifully told and I really look forward to read more from this author. I encourage you to read this book and judge for yourself
