PASSING THROUGH BRANDISS
Patricia Yager Delagrange
Releasing May 20, 2016
After the tragic loss of her husband, Annie and her young son search for a new life full of meaning and hope. Fate nudges Annie into the arms of a man whose wife disappeared with his child years ago.
Annie’s life spins out of control when first the pregnant teenager she hires to help her with her garden asks Annie to adopt her baby and shortly afterwards the long-lost wife of the man Annie loves reappears.
Riddled with grief and heartache, the experiences demonstrate how, even in the face of overwhelming sorrow, opening her heart and home to those most in need of love has reaped unexpected joy for Annie and her son.
This was a story so unlike anything I have read, it involved so much sadness and heartache, and then love and then heartache again. A story of a family very much in love, has a member ripped from them by death, the pain that came with that loss I can understand. Loosing someone you love its not something one gets over with fast. Yet Annie and Rafe do. They move and start life anew, and in walks Prescott. Nice to watch a relationship develop there too, Annie is no the only one who has been hurt, throughout the story they both experience more hurt, yet it come together for them, their family has brown by bound and leaps and a new life awaits them. Nice to read a story that flows nice and slow and it's not boring. It flowed like a slow river meandering down gently. I loved it. Thank you to Tasty Book Tours for the opportunity to read & review Passing Through Brandiss.
