Four years ago, Sherry lost everything. Her house. Her parents. And Hunter, the love of her life. She left the small town she’d called home and tried not to look back. He’s gone. Move on. Don’t think of him. But when she learns Hunter is alive, she’s forced to question that awful night when everything was ripped away from her.
Four years ago, Hunter lost Sherry. She was his home, his family, and the love of his life. He abandoned the town that held so many painful memories, but he couldn’t stop himself from looking back. Where was she? How was she? Did she think of him, too? But when his father’s death brings both of them back home, he must deal with the fallout from his choice all those years ago.
Hunter and Sherry were childhood friends, high school sweethearts, and everything in between. Hunter always told her…
Ours is a love people write stories about.
But will it be a fairy tale or a tragedy?
I could say so many good things about `Unveiling Ghosts` by Jeannine Allison, but one thing stands out the most. Something I value over almost anything else regarding books- The writing style.
This was my first time around with author Jeannine Allison and I´m overwhelmed with joy that I can say that I have another favorite author I can add to my list.
The writing style is, what I would refer to as: simple and meaningful. Easy for the mind yet every written sentence holds emotion, wisdom, truth and love. Also- I find it pretty impressive that the author managed to include childhood flashbacks AND dual POVs without disrupting the flow of the story. Chapeau!
When I read the tagline on the cover I remember giving the book suspicious glares.
„Ours is a love people will write stories about.“
You´d have to cut me some slack here…. because that´s a line I have heard a million times before. But- never have those words felt more true when it comes to this story.
The story starts off perfect with Sherry explaining her life in wonderful detail until she receives the 2 words she´s been waiting for for 4 years. Those words brought back the hope that disappeared, the life that left her. Before we know it she´s on her way back to the town where everything started and ended. And what she finds will rattle her emotional world.
Enter Hunter and the world feels whole again, or does it? I know it does because the love I have for that boy / man ( childhood flashbacks! Looks like I loved him as a child too * insert awkward silence *) is beyond anything. Let´s just say that I fell in love and can´t seem to stop falling for him.
`Unveiling Ghosts` is an emotional second-chance-romance that also tackles difficult real life topics, such as: death, cancer, abuse and neglect. Those subjects, in my opinion, are always hard to write or even read about and this author has done a wonderful job in weaving all into this heartwarming romance and showing her readers that if her characters are able to overcome their fears then everyone else can.
Will Sherry and Hunter have their happily ever after? Will both drown in the sea of fear and let their ghosts from the past take over their futures?
I guess you´ll have to read the book and find that out for yourselves.
I fully recommend `Unveiling Ghosts` ( Unveiling #3) to anyone who loves good writing, great characters and for anyone who appreciates an emotional rollercoaster ride.
