I had followed this story as a WIP (and I don't follow many!) but needed to reread the first parts again--and it reminded me how many details I had forgotten in this wonderful story and made it richer.
Although a sequel, it is not necessary to read the first story (but you should when you have the time) as all the background material is either explained or referred to within this work. It tells the story of Adam recovering from his own mental and physical hell and how his family shows their concern that he may have a relapse at some time if he is traumatized again. As the reader follows the events, the same fear grips him/her and the reader finds him/herself enthralled and captured by every succeeding chapter.
The story also involves all the Cartwrights so if Joe or Hoss or Ben is your favorite character, they have equal involvement in the action--the story has anxiety-inducing scenes featuring all the characters.
The writing is beautiful and perfectly captures the emotions that all the characters feel and the action scenes are masterfully written. If one follows the story, I defy the reader not be misty-eyed or even to burst into tears as the much-anticipated denoument is reached. (Whether it's from sadness or happiness, I won't reveal.)
The story is also Kindle, Nook friendly but after you download it and read it, please come back and leave your review. I gave it a 10 and I don't give 10's easily.Author's Response:
Many thanks to you for sticking with my WIP and submitting this wonderful review. I an honored to recieve a 10 from you, my friend!
Not only did you manage to plug my first story in this series (thank you), but you let the readers know that When Souls Awaken is not strickly an Adam tale (thank you), and you reminded e-readers to return and leave reviews (thank you).
I am glad you enjoyed the story, even if the waifs were an issue, albeit a temporary one!
