🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 Heartbreaking Stars
Life comes down to a series of choices.
To hold on…
To let go…to forget…to forgive…
Which road will you take?
For eighteen years, Jude Farraday has put her children’s needs above her own, and it shows—her twins, Mia and Zach, are bright and happy teenagers. When Lexi Baill moves into their small, close-knit community, no one is more welcoming than Jude. Lexi, a former foster child with a dark past, quickly becomes Mia’s best friend. Then Zach falls in love with Lexi and the three become inseparable.
Jude does everything to keep her kids out of harm’s way. But senior year of high school tests them all. It’s a dangerous, explosive season of drinking, driving, parties, and kids who want to let loose. And then on a hot summer’s night, one bad decision is made. In the blink of an eye, the Farraday family will be torn apart and Lexi will lose everything. In the years that follow, each must face the consequences of that single night and find a way to forget…or the courage to forgive.
How far would you go to protect one of your children?
This is the question in this heartbreaking book.
Jude has it all, a perfect family, a perfect house, a perfect life.
Her kids are popular at school (well one of them, the other pretends she is) and everything is rosy.
Jude is the perfect mother to twins Zach and Mia and they love her for it, everything she does is for them.
Mia is unhappy though, she doesn’t fit in at school and has no friends, that is until one day, a girl called Lexi sits next to her and begins to talk to her, they then become inseparable best friends.
This concerns Jude as Lexi comes from the wrong side of the tracks, but gives Lexi the benefit of the doubt and soon she becomes an addition to their perfect family.
After a stupid mistake is made one night the family’s life is never the same again and Lexi is pushed out of the families embrace.
I loved this story and was moved to tears on many occasions, it has friendship, love, loss and fear in bucket loads.
Wonderfully narrated By Kathleen McInerney, this book was a pleasure to listen to.
A definite credit recommendation from me!
