Daisy Harris has no reason to suspect that her day will be any different than usual. She’ll go to class, alone. She won’t speak or make eye contact. She’ll spend her entire day doing her best to go completely unnoticed. That’s what life is like for Daisy now—an endless cycle of loneliness and fear. A life lived hiding behind the walls she so faithfully maintains.
Then she sees it. A magazine, left behind in class. A simple picture—just his face. And it changes everything.
It’s been a year since she’s seen Daltrey Ransome. A year since he and his brothers left town to pursue their dreams of rock and roll superstardom. A year since he left Daisy behind—left her to watch as everything she knew crumbled around her. She’s been running from Daltrey ever since, desperate to keep her secret.
But she can’t run anymore. And now that Daltrey has found her—the girl he’s loved his entire life, the girl he’d give up everything for—he’s determined never to let her go again.
**The first book in a brand new series from USA Today bestselling author Rachel Schurig. This New Adult Contemporary Romance novel is a complete story with no cliffhanger.**
This story will stay with me for a long time, we were given moments of darkness however when the light shone for Daisy and her friends – it was simply outstanding and so rewarding.
What I loved about this story is we follow Daisy, in my view this is her journey not Daltrey’s and in the end she makes some tough and inspiring decisions along the way to fight her way towards living life and allowing herself to love again. We follow her and Daltrey’s physical connection but I was glad this story was more about their emotions and it did fit well with the overall theme of her journey.
The traumatic event that happens to her is unfortunately what young people today have to deal with and I think it was handled in a respectful and appropriate manner.
The way Daisy’s relationship with her dad and new friends is a beautiful thing to see, those two girls entered her life and helped her climb to the top, gave us laughs and tears. I loved their OCD lists, rules about who gets the take out, driving and road trip games – just brilliant – they gave some relief to the sensitive subjects being covered in Daisy’s story.
I did not realise Daisy’s mum had a secret that was being kept by her dad but I had a sneaky feeling about Daltrey’s dad and how much he knew.
Daisy’s living of life was being held to Ransom and through family and friends she was brought to the open to live life to the fullest – just an amazing story.
