This was sent to me by the author. This was an interesting story. There were definite dark places. Being on her own so young Braelin was such an innocent when faced with love and desire. Learning the hard way that people are not always what they seem almost cost her life. Timber and Aravon were such opposites as most families are, and it was hard for Braelin to make a choice between them. She loved both in different ways. This story shows that the path to happiness can be long and hard, yet still get to your happily ever after.
