Well, one thing is apparent. This book is anything but apparent.

Sonya Sones blows me away with all her other books, and she doesn't fail this time around either. In fact, I have to admit that this is the one book that I love to bits, and my favorite out of her collection.

Ruby moves across the country to the infamous Whip Logan's house. Why? Because he is her father. The father that divorced her mother before she was born. The father that she came to hate. The father that was never a father. She is bitter, bitter for having to leave everything she knew and loved and belonged to behind for a man that she barely knows. She is bitter for the death of her mother, and resists any attempts of bonding from Whip. She cages herself in her room, writing in desperation to her dead mother. Writing to find solace. And then the earthquake comes, and so do the revelations.

Written in beautiful prose, this book left me heartbroken and changed. Strong and powerful, I hope it'll leave you changed as well.
