In her senior year of high school, Kate finds out that Henry has moved back and is now is attending school with her. Kate does not trust anyone, especially Henry, to not publicly ridicule her.
Henry cannot seem to get close to Kate, yet he never gives up on the one girl that has captured his heart. In his own way, he will do everything in his power to protect and look after her at school. Finally he convinces Kate he truly cares about her and their trust grows.
Henry is such an incredible young man; his kindness knows no bounds, for he has been enamored with Kate since kindergarten. For Kate, he is her only lifeline that keeps her horrific and abusive world stable. The only person who does not taunt or physically hurt her, the only person who shields her, looks after her.
Thank goodness for Henry and his loving family. They are Kate’s shinning beacon of hope in her dark world. She now sees how a normal family interacts, behaves. This gives her courage to look for a brighter future even when her mother beats her.
HEART ON A CHAIN is by author Cindy C. Bennett. Bravo, Ms. Bennett, you moved this reviewer beyond words. I always had a tissue close at hand to wipe the tears shed because of the horrid things done to Kate. The ending is beautiful. It shows how a soul, so battered, can still blossom with love and perseverance. This reviewer cannot wait to see what Ms. Bennett writes next!
