Posts Tagged ‘forgiveness’

Ten years ago, Ryder Marks left his home, Sky Lake, to prove his worth. He left without goodbyes or explanation. Now he has returned as part owner of Sky Lake and owner of a successful business he built from scratch, but he didn’t figure on the impact of meeting the girl he left behind.

Peyton Brooks is completely sideswiped by Ryder’s return. He had abandoned her ten years before and she wasn’t ready to deal with him or tell him about a daughter he knew nothing about. Life, as she had made it, was about to change and she wasn’t prepared for that.

The poignancy of Ryder’s relationship with his father is heartbreaking and rebuilding something with Peyton is fraught with mistrust as she struggles with her own emotions towards him.

For me, Ryder is the main character, complex and tormented by the demons of his childhood, he vows his child will know she is loved every day of her life. But he and Peyton need to find a middle ground. While he needs her to believe in him, she needs to know why he abandoned her, left her without explanation or the chance to understand.

This is a wonderful story about forgiveness and love, in all its forms. It is thoroughly laced with emotion and I’ve no doubt will bring you to tears as it did me. A truly beautiful story. Highly recommended.
