There were two brothers—identical twins—and though I loved them both, my soul belonged to only one.
Annalia Del Valle has loved Preston Sawyer all her life. The daughter of an impoverished migrant farmworker, she grew up as an outcast in what was no more than a tiny, cooped up shack in California’s Central Valley. But her heart found freedom in the land, in the wide-open spaces of Sawyer Farm, and in the boys who were her only friends.
Preston has yearned for Annalia since he was a boy. But a sense of honor kept him from pursuing her until he’s unable to hold back any longer and their worlds—and bodies—collide one hot summer night. A night that sets off a chain of events that will alter their lives forever.
Now Annalia is back in town after disappearing without a trace for six long months. Determined to reclaim her heart, her life, and the baby she left behind—the son who was created in a moment of lust and love and pent-up yearning.
Preston has survived grief, a ravaging drought, and the despair of heartache, but he’s not sure he can survive Annalia again. And he might be unwilling to try. Will pride and bitterness keep him from the one thing he’s always longed for?
How do you heal what is irreparably broken? How do you forgive that which is unforgivable? How do you discover that real honor comes not from circumstance, but from the place deep in our hearts where truth resides? And how do you move beyond the wounds of the past to discover that some loves are as solid as the ground beneath your feet, and as enduring as the earth itself?
Mia writes it... I read it. Did I know what it was about? No. Did I freak out when I finally learned it was brothers both vying for one girl's attention? Yes!
That had angst written all over it!!
But it wasn't what I was anticipating, and I hope others don't shy away thinking "love triangle." Don't do that. You'll be doing yourself a grave disservice. Preston's Honor is a must read!
Mia has written another beautiful story with so much heart and emotion.
I should have known and been prepared with tissues in hand... but, silly me, I wasn't ready!!
I cried. Happy tears a time or two, but a lot of sad ones.
My gut clenched with sympathy so many times for Lia and the cards life dealt her... not only her, but for Preston and Cole as well.
This book was beautiful. Full of anguish, love, family, and strength.
Another superb story by Mia Sheridan! Amazon US / UK
