As they learn to live together, a powerful attraction flourishes between Megan and the young man. Although he s street smart, tough and mature, he s also a youth in transition. When they finally give in to the sexual heat between them, Megan fears she’s taking advantage of her position as his mentor.

“Sometimes…I think maybe you saved my life.”

This was a difficult read but one that I am so happy I persevered with it and finished it. The subject matter is very difficult but the author handled it beautifully and the emotional depth was something I truly felt. I really connected with Sean and Megan and was rallying for them the whole way,
It was a bit disconcerting with the age of Sean but once again, the way the author handled the story made you accept him and his past.
This book definitely had me thinking the next day. A moving and heartfelt story.

SYNOPSIS

 In the fall of 1946, grieving war widow Sarah goes to the carnival with her friends and is riveted by the tattooed man in the freak show, sporting head to toe body art. Later she discovers him hiding in her hayloft, escaped from virtual imprisonment since childhood by the carnival’s evil owner. She shelters him on her farm, fighting a powerful sexual attraction while learning about his mysterious past and gentle nature. When a local child goes missing, Tom uses his psychic gifts to locate her, but his assistance in the case doesn’t allay the town’s mistrust of such an exotic stranger in their midst. Small-town prejudice tears the lovers apart and a very real threat from carnival owner Art Reed endangers them. Can they rise above obstacles of fear and hate to create the family both have always craved?

I love love LOVED this story. It was so beautiful and poignant and the message of how LOVE comes in different guises and goes beyond skin deep was received loud and clear!! It’s a gorgeous yet heartbreaking story of how two lonely people, each for their own reasons, find each other and attempt to overcome all obstacles and prejudices to stay together and let their LOVE conquer all!!

Sarah is a lonely widow whose husband was killed during WWII. Her friends take her with them to a traveling carnival and whilst there she becomes entranced by the tattooed man in the ‘freak tent’. Sarah is in awe of the beauty of this man whilst others look upon him in disgust and scorn.

The following day Sarah discovers him in her barn. Tom has escaped and is on the run from the carnival and its horrible and vile owner who has kept Tom imprisoned his entire life. Sarah agrees to let him stay with her and this is where their beautiful yet harrowing journey begins….

This book is such a gem, it took a piece of my heart, especially Tom!!!
