The Human Side is a sequel to New Beginnings by Cori Garrison.
Shawn Evans has finally allowed someone inside her thick walls that she has used for so many years to protect herself. Rebecca Johns somehow managed to crack Shawn’s fortress and the two of them were now preparing for the birth of their baby, an event that Shawn had never foreseen in her future. Just when Shawn was starting to trust that she could truly be happy with someone, life throws a wrench in her plans.
Her father shows up and tries to keep Shawn and her sister Sam from helping their younger sister, Stacy, who has come to Charlotte to settle into a new life and job after college. Will her father’s cruel words, callous behavior and all the old pain she’s experienced cause her happiness to crumble or will Shawn allow Rebecca’s love to heal those wounds? Will she allow Rebecca to see her human side, the side of her that is torn apart by the fact that her parents hate her?
Sam Evans is dealing with her own pain caused by her parent’s rejection of her and more painfully, her son. She can’t fathom how her sister, Shawn, has dealt with this treatment from them for so long without being crushed. Can she be strong enough to help her sister through the darkness and face her own pain?
