A nearly tragic accident leads to a discovery that rocks the Sweeney family’s world.
Some families never resolve conflicts. Not so with the Sweeneys. Their sense of family, their love for one another, and their willingness to forgive have always triumphed and brought them back together. Until now. The latest crisis threatens to tear the family apart and crumble the foundation that has always proved itself rock solid.
At the heart of the matter are sixteen-year-old Annie Bethune and her boyfriend, Cooper. At stake are their dreams for the future. As to these dreams, no one in the family holds back when asserting an opinion.
Annie soon begins to feel like a puppet on strings with all those she loves telling her what to do. When those strings become tangled and a family feud develops, Annie, unable to bear the pressure, runs away. Straight into the arms of danger.
Love that covers all
Tangle of Strings, by Ashley Farley, is a story about family loyalty, love, and pulling apart and together in stressful times. Although fourth in the Sweeney Sisters series, the book can easily be read as a stand alone novel. The author does a good job of filling in enough of the back stories that one does not get lost in missing details. The focus in this book is on the teenagers of the family, Annie and Cooper, and the decisions that need to be made, the dreams that need to be considered and why can't the adults just let them find their way? So many opinions and which one is right? Will there be a family feud or will love and reason prevail? The story is face paced with real-life situations that Farley infuses with drama and emotional tension. The characters are true-to-life and evocative--readers will get caught up in their lives. Family dilemmas covered by a whole lot of love and loyalty.
I received a copy of the book from the author. A favorable review was not required and opinions are my own.
Tangle of Strings
Tangle of Strings is Book 4 in the Sweeney Sisters Series. The author has written each of these books with enough background information included so that they can be read as stand alone books. Tangle of Strings deals with the issues of the youngest Sweeney family members - Cooper & his girlfriend Annie (who is under the guardianship of his aunt and uncle). Annie has seemed to always have challenges in life beginning when her Mom abandoned her with her father. He did the best he could but unfortunately it wasn't much. Once Faith and Mike become her legal guardians, things begin to change. She has become part of large, loving and genuinely caring family. In fact, often, they love each other so much it "hurts" - they end up hurting one another trying to protect each other and prove their love for one another. Sometimes they are just a little too intense with expressing their love and all hell breaks loose! They really could just cut each other some slack and everyone would be a lot calmer. This novel is filled with every element a great novel should have - excellent, believable characters, a heart wrenching story that too many families are forced to deal with, confrontations within a family, a very suspenseful kidnapping, finding friends you can count on and family working together for a common goal, In the end, love does conquer all. Another super read by a superior author! Can't wait for the next Series, book, etc. PLEASE keep them coming!
