Title: Making Faces
Author: Amy Harmon
Release Date: February 21, 2017
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Synopsis: The Spencer Hill Press release will have Bonus Content never before available. Ambrose Young was beautiful. The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She’d been reading them since she was thirteen. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have . . . until he wasn’t beautiful anymore. Making Faces is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl’s love for a broken boy, and a wounded warrior’s love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of Beauty and the Beast, where we discover that there is a little beauty and a little beast in all of us.
I received an e-copy in exchange for an honest review.
Amy Harmon knows how to create a story with emotion, beauty and the overwhelming sense of absolution. Fern, Ambrose and Bailey, all are unique characters who know how to steal the show, even with all the historical events (9/11) taking place and changing their lives.
I loved the romance, the touch of "Beauty and the Beast" but the main lesson you do get from this book is that love can heal and forgive. Very touching read which I do recommend.
