“The child is father of the man.”
Growing up, Jeff Hudson was labeled as a problem child. His parents were on the verge of divorce. He often started fights. And he acted out to get his parents’ attention. However, he quickly finds he cannot outrun his past, even if it means winning over Sandy Harris and her mother. When his past catches up to him, it might put both him and Sandy at risk.
Patricia McAlexander wove together a gripping tale of love, danger, and second chances. The author created a story with so much depth that each character introduced was unique and your heart couldn’t help but go out to them. I loved getting to know the characters, and I found myself rooting for Jeff and Sandy to make their relationship work.
My rating: 5 stars
Former grade school bully and, later, amateur drug dealer Jeff Hudson turns his life around and is pursuing a degree in agriculture. His future, as well as a budding relationship with fellow student Sandy Harris, is threatened when a former dealer threatens to expose Jeff’s past to university authorities if he doesn’t rejoin the ring.
Realizing that Jeff is no longer an angry, misunderstood boy, Sandy must take a stand against her family and friends who swear he is no good and will only cause her unhappiness. Together, can they escape the past in order to forge a future?
