I knew when I started reading this book, that I would get my heartstrings tugged at, more than once, it being an Amanda Prowse book. I was right :)
Thomasina "Hitch" is a woman living on a remote farm who has had to overcome more challenges than most. Her parents, not surprisingly, have wanted to wrap her up in their love and make sure that she is safe, at all times. Of course, love can feel smothering sometimes and it takes her parents a little while to realise that Thomasina is a grown woman and capable of much more than they give her credit for. Grayson Potts is the man who comes to stay at her family B & B and within hours, it is clear that the two of them have a very special bond. He has also not had the easiest life, has also been bullied and been made to feel "less than".
Gray and Thomasina are such lovely people and I wanted to throw my arms around the pair of them and make sure that neither of them are hurt again. However, real life is not like that and they have a lot of things to get through, both separately and together. Overall though, this book is full of hope and love, and pushing through and achieving great things - just wonderful.
Loved everything about this book.
I don't often give 5 stars for my reviews, but this novel was worth each one.
I enjoyed how real the storyline and characters felt. Reading stories with substance always leaves me feeling satisfied. It was almost like seeing what it's like for "outcasts of society" to live on a daily basis.
The heroine of the story, Thomasina 'Hitch', lived with many physical disabilities, but it was the emotional scars which disabled her the most. I typically don't cry when reading books or watching films, but I shed some tears while I read this story.
I loved Grayson and his ability to speak plainly even if he didn't understand everything. Unconventional in the classic sense, a hard life to live with such a tender heart, he has left an imprint on my heart. 😊
I know that this is my first read from Amanda Prowse but it definitely won’t be my last!
I know that my heart is warmed from reading this beautiful love story.
I know that I’m very sad that I can’t keep reading this book.
A love story between two awkward misfits who met by chance and together brought out the best in each other and enriched not just their own lives but the lives of those around them. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the storyline and would highly recommend this book and author to others.
Beautifully written, not what I expected at all, yay one for the underdogs. What are predictable ending but forgivable. I loved Hitch,we all recognized our Hitches and our Emery’s. I think this is the best kind of romance to read and recommend it for all the tender hearts out there.
