A Sweeping Standalone from New York Times Bestseller Pepper Winters.
“Things you should know about me from the very beginning:
I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son.
I am happy being alone.
And that is all I ever want to be.”
The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson.
It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow.
That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man.
And nothing and no one could change his mind.
I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life.
He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive.
I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of heartbreak that made me want to hug and heal him.
I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father.
We shared similarities.
I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me.
But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried.
He stayed true to his vow to never fall.

Epically beautiful and unforgettable. This story is beyond anything you’ll ever read. --Melissa, Goodreads
I loved it. I just wish that when they finally got together it didn’t feel so rushed to get to the end :/
Wow! I am at a loss for words for the way Pepper Winters writes! A beautiful story, that will make you laugh and make you cry! Can’t wait for the next one she writes!
The Son & His Hope is an epic story by Pepper Winters. You can read it as standalone but I HIGHLY recommend reading the Ribbon Duet first to feel the full impact. The Ribbon Duet is everything and more. It’s a story that will never forget and now I have their son’s story to remember.
Jacob is fourteen. Hope is ten. They are both very mature for their ages. He was at the movie premiere for his mom. She was there to watch her father on the big screen. She saw him from the moment they met. He didn’t want to be near her.
That’s where their story began. I don’t want to spoil anything. I will say that Hope is one of the strongest characters I have had the pleasure of meeting in a book. Della Wild was another. The two of them in one book is amazing. Then there is Jacob. A man who was never really a boy. He is protective. Always. He is also moody. Very moody. But, Hope is not afraid. She is determined to be his friend. A friend to a man who doesn’t want her there. At his farm. In his way. In his life.
This series is epically amazing!!! And this story was one I didn’t know I needed but can’t imagine now not having it. Jacob and Hope’s story is an emotional ride. It gave me every single feel there is. I cried. Hard. I got angry. I felt sad. I felt everything. The writing is pure genius. Poetic.
Overall...it’s a poetic journey that will stay with me.
“You have your entire life ahead of you, Wild One. All I ask is...try not to rush it. Be grateful for each day, even the dark ones.”
“Why are you doing this?”
She smiled sadly. “Because ever since I saw you on set, I’ve wanted to know you. I’m not afraid of you, Jacob. And you need someone who isn’t afraid of you.”
“I don’t need anyone.”
“If this is you being civil, I don’t want to know what you’re like when you’re being rude.”
“Hang around and you’ll find out.”
“Maybe I will.”
