This is my second Bonnie Dee book and I definitely want to read all her books. Dee's characters have a way of winning my heart and making me feel like my heart will break if the couple lose each other.
I love that Sarah was so strong and capable. We hear far too often about strong female characters that too often wind up just being "feisty" and needed a man to rescue them by the end, while the male lead is too often an alpha male stereotype who is possessive and even smothering of his woman. Thankfully this book subverts those tropes to explore more unique and interesting dynamics.
Sarah is a lonely young widow, but she is quite capable of taking care of herself. More than that, it's she who is the protector to Tom, a tattooed man from a 1940s "freak show" who escapes from a lifetime of abuse. The love they grows between them is sweet and touching.
While there is a villain to confront the true adversary they must overcome is small town prejudice which is something many people can relate to. Highly recommended.

This is such an amazing tale, has all the parts we need for a beautiful love story.
Heartbroken woman, grieving over the death of a beloved husband. A man that was brought up broken, together they make a life, one they find bitter and difficult. But worth the ending.
The narrator, for me just didn't hot the points that needed to be made. And that turned the whole story off for me.
This is one you need to read, for sure.

I couldn't seem to stop listening to this story and it hooked me completely. Felt like escapism! Didn't sleep much as I just wanted to stay engrossed in the story. Definitely speed the narration up to x 1.25 as it was far too slow before - sounded natural once I changed the speed, and I believed the characters were talking which is always a sign of decent narrator.
