Unique and Brilliant story for the series
This was the most unexpected and now favorite book in the Walsh Family saga. Kate Canterbury had me taken unawares and delighted me in the best possible way.
So this is about Erin and ? Yes, I’m not going to be that person. I’m sure you can find reviews who tells you who it is. But don’t. If you’ve read the series, you probably have a clue. But why spoil it.
Although our hero is important as a loyal and loving partner, it’s Erin who steals the show in this engaging read. See, she is always on the fringes in the other stories. She is colored most often in an unflattering light from those character’s POV. So why care about a character who wants distance from her dysfunctional family? Because it’s Erin’s social awkwardness and intelligence that is so attractive to the reader. She has decisions to make that will impact her future greatly. Regardless of location or vocation, in her shoes, Kate Canterbary gives the reader insight on how hard it is to balance all work/life expectations. I thought Sam was tough to read, however Erin brought her own real baggage and one I could relate to all too closely.
Sometimes series are like wine, each one improves with age and experience of being. But this series is so unique and engaging. Kate Canterbury keeps the ideas fresh and the reader engaged. When you get to this book - because you will read in order- you’ll find all the pieces come together brilliantly. 5 out of 5 stars.
Touched me deeply!
I love a book that engages all of my emotions and speaks to my soul and Erin's story touched me deeply in so very many ways. She's brilliant and fearless in the pursuit of her career and I found her brilliance fascinating and awe inspiring. But when it comes to dealing with her family and their past, I could feel her trepidation deep down in my soul. It's a living breathing dragon of shame and regret that absolutely crushed her and made me cry ugly tears for all the horror she experienced and all the time she was estranged from her sister and the rest of her siblings. The fact that she could come to grips with her tragic past and take a chance on loving Nick filled my heart with the hope that someday I will be able to do it too. This book is funny, irreverent, tumultuous and black as Hell but it's also the most encouraging example of overcoming adversity that I have ever read and it has indeed changed me for the better. Thank you, Kate Canterbary, for the joy and the sorrow, and for creating the most meaningful family that will stay with me forever. Well done!
We finally get Erin's story. For those who have followed the Walsh family journey, we've been waiting to hear about Erin and waiting for her to come home and waiting for her someone special.
This book did not disappoint. After all of the wondering who her someone special would be, he is perfect for Erin. He's strong enough to bring her home. So many feels as they navigate their relationship and Erin learns to trust and mend fences with her family. Bravo to Ms. Canterbary for writing such an amazing story. It was well with the wait and I have so much love for the Walsh family and all of their additions.
