Breaking Faith by M. King
My rating: I really liked this.
This is what the book is about.
Brett Derwent thinks he has life all planned out. With the freedom of college life just months away, Brett’s eagerly awaiting some fun and independence… until he meets Tommy Hawks. Over the course of one northern Montana summer, an intense romance blooms between the young men, but Tommy has a painful secret—one that even first love can’t mitigate. Continually brutalized by his violent father, Tommy is pushed to the edge, torn between the desire to protect his mother and four siblings, and his fear of losing the love he never expected to find.
When the unthinkable happens and Tommy’s father is found dead, Brett is afraid to learn the truth. Appalled to think that his lover may be responsible, Brett must face impossible questions: how much of his life—of his youth—is he willing to sacrifice for Tommy, and will having faith in him be enough?
This is what I thought about it.
This was an emotional journey that was well worth taking.
This is the story of a relationship made complicated by a prison term. It was believable because doubts were voiced and issues were worked through. I think what I liked most about this book was that everything didn't really turn out all rosie. The worst did happen and they had to work though it and adapt to it, this was a great human observation story and was skilfully done making the feelings of brett and tommy real and the tie up leaves it so you feel like they might just make it, and the author does it by keeping believable.
