Sonny Bates is living a life most women only dream of: traveling the world to find perfect locations for Hollywood movies. Her latest assignment brings her a little too close to home, though, in the muggy wilderness of the South Carolina Barrier Islands. Social media may show Sonny as the epitome of success, but there’s a dark underbelly of abuse and codependency behind the screen. When she stumbles across a secluded island, the lone inhabitant, a legendary hermit marked by tragedy, introduces her to indigo dying. Manual labor provides them both an outlet to heal from the past and explore more healthy relationships in their lives. Lowe brings the hope of the gospel where much Christian fiction avoids: into the lives of women who’ve been abused.
VERDICT With beautiful themes and strong writing, Lowe (Under the Magnolias) delivers a romance that lifts up women and men and shows how love can overcome the walls built around secrets. Nicole Deese and Natalie Walters are similar contemporary authors in the genre.
