Her beauty only adds to his confusion and built up aggression. She shouldn't be so special so caring, so good but she is and that threatens to tear down walls he has built for his own safety that and past transgressions.
Wow wow wow, this story is so powerful and so expressive. Ms. Thomason has done an excellent job of bringing the reader into her story, having them stand next to the characters and see what they see. It's descriptive, it's beautifully written with heartfelt pain for the secrets and the life that threatens these two characters. A definite must read with a perfect Blue Ribbon rating of five.
