Windswept Way


Windswept Way by Irene Hannon is book #9 in the Hope Harbor series. A stand alone story. 

This story is unique in the way that Ashley Scott and Jonathan Gray address issues which could make one uncomfortable. Jon, severely wounded in the war, has many deforming scars. He has hidden himself away, being a landscaper, avoiding people because of the rejection he has been subjected to. Ashley, recovering from a failed relationship, finds Jon to be kind and is fascinated with his integrity. As they both wonder if a romance could develop, they find their way through prejudice at Jon's appearance. Jon takes a chance by his willingness to let Ashley see who he is, both inside and out. The book is about beauty being only skin deep and it's the heart of the person that really matters. A lovely story.

I received a complimentary ebook copy from the publisher, through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
