Fiction Friday: A Slow Burn

Mary DeMuth continues the Defiance Texas Trilogy with this, the 2nd book. In the first book, Daisy Chain, young Daisy Chance disappears. Her friend, Jed Pepper, feels guilty for abandoning her and her mother, Emory Chance, blames him. In this book, Emory tries to find Daisy’s murderer as questions regarding Daisy’s death continue to mount. And Hixon, the gentle handyman, continues to love Emory. Told from Emory’s point of view, this story is about courageous love, the burden of regret, and bonds that never break. Most of all, it is about the power of forgiveness and what remains when shame no longer holds us captive. It is indeed captivating and poignant. Troubling and redemptive. Passionate and gentle. It’s a great read.

The 3rd book, Life in Defiance, will release in May.
