A troubled young mother yearns for a shot at redemption in this heartbreaking yet hopeful story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover.
After serving five years in prison for a tragic mistake, Kenna Rowan returns to the town where it all went wrong, hoping to reunite with her four-year-old daughter. But the bridges Kenna burned are proving impossible to rebuild. Everyone in her daughter’s life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself.
The only person who hasn’t closed the door on her completely is Ledger Ward, a local bar owner and one of the few remaining links to Kenna’s daughter. But if anyone were to discover how Ledger is slowly becoming an important part of Kenna’s life, both would risk losing the trust of everyone important to them.
The two form a connection despite the pressure surrounding them, but as their romance grows, so does the risk. Kenna must find a way to absolve the mistakes of her past in order to build a future out of hope and healing.
Thank you Montlake Romance for providing a book in exchange for an honest review.
Reminders of Him gives a classic Colleen Hoover emotional romance. It reminds me back on the year when I first read and made me love her books. I had a good cry in the middle of the night.
Kenna Rowan is free after 5 years of imprisonment. A tragedy hits her life and she’s sentenced for a crime. It was a misunderstanding and she’s longing for her four year old daughter. She has nobody and reconnecting to her child’s father’s seems impossible. Her determination and courage to seek forgiveness and explain her story is through Ledger Ward, her ex-boyfriend’s best friend.
Ledger owns the bar. At first, he is unaware of Kenna’s identity and he’s fascinated by her mysteriousness. However, such revelation puts him in a complicated situation. Especially when he’s protective and cares for the welfare of his best friend’s family, particularly on his best friend’s daughter. The story centers on grief, forgiveness and family relationship. It was beautifully told and it is a tear-jerker. The best way to dive in this book is to go blindly. I sympathize with the characters and I feel utmost respect for what Kenna has been through. Her character development is great and I love her.
Overall, this is a standout and worth the hype. I hope you’ll enjoy this book as much as I did. Prepare some tissues. Just in case it’ll make you cry.
