Beautiful, poignant love story...
7 September 2019
‘The Day He Came Back’ is an emotional, angsty second-chance romance from Penelope Ward - classic Ward in every way... Right from the start, Gavin and Raven’s story hooked me in, and I had a hard time stopping myself frantically swiping. Packed with the sweet, tender first love feels, the first half of the story is full of all the excitement of young love, genuine connection and new attraction. "Raven was like a drug. I was fine until I let myself have a little taste of her again." Yet despite all the common ground they found, they came from very different worlds. Raven was the hired help at Gavin’s family’s estate, and his mother makes is crystal clear that Raven has no place in Gavin’s life.
Ten years later Raven is back at Gavin’s family’s estate as his father’s caregiver who is suffering from dementia. A surprise visit brings the biggest surprise of all for both of them. The feelings they both still habour come roaring back, but there is a lot of hurt, a lot of change and some big secrets to sort through. Ward takes readers through their heartbreak step by step as this couple forgive and heal. The love is still there, though, that’s not going away. "How many times in life do you have a chance to undo your biggest regret?"
This second chance romance is a story of epic proportions filled with all the love, angst, and heartbreak you'd know and love in a Penelope Ward book. A beautiful, poignant, and romantic love story, ‘The Day He Came Back’ gets five stars from me.
