This was a fast read and I would say that the subject matter is in no way easy; the book is at times harrowing and heartbreaking. This is the story of Army Staff Sergeant Bethanie Reynolds who returns home after being medically discharged from the Army, the lone survivor of a horrific attack on her squad and the man who has loved her since they were children, Remy LeSalle who owns the farm next door to her in Legacy Falls.
Remy has always been in love with Bethanie; she has always wanted friendship and nothing more. For the 6 years whilst she has been serving her country he has held out hope that once she came home, she would be ready for his love and a future together.
When Bethanie returns home, shattered and broken from her final tour, it is Remy who is at the station to meet her thanks to their matchmaking mothers. I will say that this book did move a little too fast for me. One minute she was home, the next Bethanie is realising she has been in love with Remy for years, it did seem a tad too fast a turn around, however this is fiction and anything is possible.
Will Bethanie be able to overcome the survivor’s guilt she feels? Or will she give up on the love she and Remy share? He knows that something horrible happened and that she believes she has no right to happiness, but will she open up to Remy and let him in?
I have to say that this story was an emotional roller-coaster; at times the pain and horror almost felt like it could jump off the pages and grip me with terror. Behind my Charade was well written and I congratulate Ms. Turner on handling the topics with great care and sensitivity.
Skye Turner is a new author to me. Not sure why I haven’t read anything from Ms. Turner before but I will be rectifying that as soon as possible.
