Cry No More by Linda Howard
Cry No More was almost perfect. For that, I needed a bit more from the male MC. I can’t pinpoint why but I couldn’t read him.
Please, don’t tomato’sh me here.
But he was too mysterious and not in that fascinating enigmatic way, it was more like in a shady way. There was something missing, like a piece of a puzzle to make the whole him make sense. On the other hand, the female character exceeded my expectations. Milla had her world ripped apart.
But instead of being carried away by darkness and depression,…
…and she became a lady on a mission.
Tireless on her mission, I must say. Ten years, a pillar, steady, strong, fierce on what she believed. Helping other families, who were facing the same kind of nightmare she had once been through in her life.
I couldn’t be prouder of her and yet, at the end, she astonished me again, showing that on top of all her other qualities she was also…
…the most selfless character I came across in a book.
Because c’mon, what she did at the end? I am not sure I would be able to do the same. Maybe. Maybe not. It’s that kind of situation where you only know what to do once you come across it: to deal with your heart or your reason?
I won’t forget this book anytime soon and that is the reason I will round it up to 5 stars.
A remarkable story!
