***** 4.5 stars *****
First of all, let's take a moment to look (again) at the beautiful cover. Absolution has always been one of my favorite covers, and I may love this one even more! Anyway...I love Amanda Dick's writing, and the way it paints a picture in your mind. It flows nicely, and her books are always so wonderful. She creates the most realistic characters, struggling with something we can typically all relate to. Callum and Sass are no different. These two are both working through some serious baggage. Sliding Down the Sky is another beautiful story from Amanda Dick about real human nature and the struggles we all face when forced to deal with difficulties in life.
*Note: I looooooved the quotes at the beginning of each chapter!!
Here's the blurb:
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.
(This can be read as a stand-alone, but reading ‘Absolution’ is recommended in order to get the most out of this story).
