Sliding down the sky
by Amanda Dick
Callum Ferguson has grown up in the shadow of the sins of his father. The worst moment of his life came not at the age of sixteen, when he threw his father out of the house, but later in life, when he realised he was just like him. With a predilection for alcohol and violence, he sees his destiny every time he looks in the mirror.
Sass Hathaway, hell-raiser and successful musician, thrived in the limelight – until one night she lost it all. Drowning in an ocean of uncertainty, nursing a crippling case of self-loathing, her brother offers her a chance to find herself again.
His idea of salvation is a dilapidated bar. His proposal; she help him and his wife renovate and run it. However, when she and Callum cross paths, they both discover that salvation comes in many forms.
You can’t escape your past, you can only come to terms with it so that you can move on – but accepting your past is only the beginning. Then you must decide whether you’re strong enough to follow your heart.
Once again Amanda Dick has done it again with another breath taking novel about heartbreakingly broken people.
I am a bit late writing up my review for this book, I first read it quickly and fell in love with it months ago but with the release came the reread and this time I purposely took my time with it. I wanted to marinate in it and just fall in love with these characters all over again.
In this book we follow Callum Ferguson you may remember him form Amanda’s first book Absolution now it’s not super important to read Absolution first I highly recommend it. This s a character driven book with that deals with highly emotional issues, its slow building and well thought out, if you are looking for quick, smutty, fluff with little to no substance then look elsewhere. I can’t say enough about Amanda’s writing style, this lady is just going from strength to strength in her writing. Everything is done with such description you can imagine being there I love the language she used to describe things and feelings.
"He saved me because I didn’t have the heart to save myself."
"I was a shadow, looking for a dark corner to hide in. It took a while for me to realise that no corner was darker than the hole inside me."
"I was naked, standing in a cold new world, stripped of who I was and unable to do what I loved."
"In that moment, she placed her trust in my hands, and I was hers."
