Tucker Review - Eternity Springs: The McBrides of Texas #2
When I first started to read the The McBrides of Texas Trilogy by Emily March I became intrigued with Boone. For me it felt right that his story would be the last book in this trilogy.
Boone’s refusal to talk about a past that tormented him makes him very allusive and intriguing. It drew out the puzzle solver in me. I wanted to know what made this hot man so reserved when it felt like he was a man that was supposed to be larger than life filled with love and laughter. Also, why would a man who had everything leave family, friends and his lucrative job to isolate in a small town.
The story opens on Chapter 1 and quickly draws the reader into what haunts Boone. Though we don’t get the full story in this part of the book it is heartbreaking as the author weaves a story filled with all his emotions sorrow, disappointment, feeling of failure, dread, fear and eventually anger. This chapter also explains why he ran away from a lucrative law job in Fort Worth, TX. As well as opening the dialog on his deceased wife Mary.
Celeste plays a pivotal character in this book directing both Boone and Hannah into each other’s orbit. As always, her sixth sense seems to know what people need and she keeps creating situations to make sure things happen that helps the right people find each other. She is much like a spiritual love matchmaker.
I can relate to Hannah with her losses and honestly, I would have contemplated what she wants to do for the same reasons. In her situation, feeling hopeless and at fault is easy while still living seems impossible with such devastating losses in her personal life. The evolution of her grief is handled superbly, and the reader will fell a sense of relief as the pages unfold and both Boone and Hannah start to fully heal.
This book is full of emotions of loss, sorrow, sadness, and regret. What it does excruciatingly well is touch on child abuse, multiple accidental deaths and finding redemption and love again. I cried several times while reading this book and the ending for me was really rewarding.
Author Emily March does an outstanding job of ending The McBrides of Texas Trilogy with deep emotions and love.
