His one wish? To escape. Beautifully. Cleanly. Without guilt or uncertainty. Without hurting anyone.
Broken by love, Lincoln Fraser is back in the city of his birth. He’s been abandoned, betrayed, and doesn’t see how he can ever trust again.
Kali Johnson is stuck in a world that feels too much for her. Her husband’s gone, her son won’t talk, and her apartment is full of rats. Fearful she's failing at life, all she wants is a second chance to make things right.
When a freak accident places Kali and her son in Lincoln’s path, he feels compelled to help this single mother and her child.
Unprepared for the challenge of letting anyone back into his life, Lincoln is faced with a question—continue to shut himself out from the world or slowly let someone in?
Raw, heartbreaking, but full of hope, Behind Our Lives, Book One in the Behind Our Lives Trilogy, is a story that will leave you wanting more.
Behind our Lives
Ms. Carr has once again drawn me in as a reader with her characters. Lincoln and Kalli were an unlikely pair to become friends, and yet you understand why they are drawn to each other, and you root for them, as well as her son Theo. In looking at them and the choices they have made in their lives, as the reader it also makes you think about your own interactions with others in your own life. She definitely reinforces the thought that life isn't always easy or uncomplicated when it comes to choices.
The author says that this is the beginning of a trilogy, and I am looking forward to continuing their journey with them. There is much that can still be uncovered about them and their relationships, not only with each other, but with the members of their families.
I received an advance copy of this book for an honest review.
