deirdre....in my free time

Always looking for my next book hangover. Give me great characters with a surprisingly original plot and you got me . . . Throw in action, some romance, and a twist and I am sold . . . .

this stayed with me . . .

When You Were Older - Catherine Ryan Hyde

I have had this on my mind for the past 2 weeks, thus upping my star rating .......

I believe i found another author whose backlist i need to check out.

If that day touched you in a personal capacity, this may not be for you.

A young man's struggle with a painful past and the burdens they place on his future.
A phone call can change everything. Can a loved one save you from beyond the grave?

The journey of healing your past while moving forward
Finding love can be a blessing but add ethnic bigotry post-9/11 and life gets complicated

Well written MCs. Even Ben with his diminished capacity. Russell. Poor Russell. So much on one person's plate.
Anat. what a refreshing female character.
The secondary characters are well done, even though some are only there for demonstrative purposes.
The struggle is heart felt and the hope for the future is exciting ....
