Hawthorn & Heathcliff – R.K.Ryals – 5 STARS
Two names that didn’t belong to us. Two shoes that did.
Intense and introspective, seventeen-year-old Hawthorne Macy knows all about being abandoned. She’s felt the stark pain of being left behind by the people who are supposed to love her the most; her parents. Raised by her caring uncle on an old plantation, Hawthorne lives her life on the fringes of her small Southern town.
Until she meets his shoe.
Senior year, last period English class, and a pair of silent tennis shoes resting next to hers in the back of the room throws Hawthorne into a world she’d learned to stay outside of.
His name is Max Vincent, but in her mind, he’s Heathcliff. The handsome eighteen-year-old boy behind the shoes will pull Hawthorne into a passionate and unforgettable adventure of self-discovery during a time when love seems impossible.
Shoes can tell a lot about a person. The journey they take you on can tell a lot about how they’ll hold up.
BEAUTIFUL! I read this in one sitting. This story is about love, loss, sacrifice, second chance and ultimately happiness. I cried so many times reading this book. My heart break for Hawthorne since she had to go through so much in her life but then again I think that make her a great heroine. Heathcliff is a great friend – he was proactive and he helped her coming out of her shell. I understand Heathcliff has to find his own path but I was a little sad though with the way he left and sort of cut off all ties L. I love the relationship Hawthorne has with her uncle and I also love Heathcliff’s family. This book is amazing and well written. It sort of remind me of another book I read “The sweet gum tree”… What can I say but read it “for my sake!”J 5 big bright stars!
