On the surface Bonnie had everything - wealth, fame, beauty, a great voice and success but underneath it all she was broken, torn, devastated and alone. She had had enough and was about to end it all when out of the mist on top of a bridge came her salvation..... Clyde. He was handsome, a brilliant mathematician and a tattooed ex con whose story was just as sad and just as heartbreaking as Bonnie's and when he reached out to save her he unknowingly changed the course of both their destinies.
He was going on a road trip to Las Vegas for a job and Bonnie talked him into taking her with him and slowly they got to know each other, their secrets, their fears and their dreams and they both had a similar tragedy which haunted them. But Bonnie's Manager had put a kidnapping spin on Bonnie's disappearance which made their journey fraught with tension, drama and danger and, as the news story got twisted with rumours and lies, Bonnie and Clyde's journey became eerily similar to the story of the long dead outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. However, instead of doing harm wherever they went, they met people in desperate need of help and so they veered off their journey willing to give aid or assistance no matter the cost to themselves.
As the hours and adventure together grew so did their attraction, their self discovery, their closeness and their eventually beautiful love story blossomed but, like the infamous Bonnie and Clyde, they were headed for trouble but they raced against it and finally thought they'd won but lies, deceit, greed and manipulation tore the lovers apart in a brutal and humiliating way. Finally only faith in each other's love would give them the HEA ending they both deserved.
What a captivating love story this is as two loveable troubled characters found each other, held on, weathered the storm and eventually reaped the rewards. Tender, touching, poignant, heartbreaking and magical with poetic romantic words and brief non descriptive words of lovemaking.
Dual POV's. However, it was Tavia Gilbert's wonderful narration (and singing) that brought the whole story to life so you felt the despair, the joy, the fear, the happiness, the sincerity and the love that these two characters went through as the miles grew, the scenery changed and two half souls became one.
Worth a credit? If you're a romance lover you won't want to miss this breathtaking story that was definitely worth a credit.

A very sweet love story of two people who have each suffered. They come together and each learn to trust and love again. No hot sex scenes, just a lot of growth, and sharing, and love.

As usual I love the synchronicity of her stories, so well executed and researched I loved how this tied in with Bonny and Clyde's story; she involves the unexplained with such elegance. As characters go I loved the hobo William G.o.D.
Amy Harmon is truly an amazing story teller and this time she tells a story of loss, compassion, love and letting go. The story's got heart and even though the plot is simple I couldn't help but feeling mesmerised by the lyrical quality of her words and couldn't help but caring about the characters in the story.
The narration is absolutely superb. Tavia Gilbert does more than what she normally does - here she sings, and this she does so beautifully! The already heart-breakingly beautiful story is enhanced by her performance as a narrator. So yes, I'd highly recommend the audio book.
