Book Review: Titus Returns by Amy Lillard


Titus Returns (A Wells Landing Romance) by [Lillard, Amy]

Titus Returns (A Wells Landing Romance)



From Amazon:

In Wells Landing, Oklahoma’s warm and welcoming Amish community, there’s always hope for a new beginning—and a second chance…
 
Five tumultuous years have changed Titus Lambert in every way. Back then, Titus was preparing to marry his longtime sweetheart, Mandy Yoder. Then came the unthinkable—a tragic car wreck that left Titus serving time for vehicular manslaughter.
 
Titus isn’t sure he belongs in this peaceful place anymore, but he must make amends. When he goes to visit the Kings, whose son, Alvin, died that terrible night, he’s shocked to see that their farm has fallen into disrepair. Alvin’s sister, Abbie, resents Titus’s reappearance, but there’s no denying she needs his help. Honest toil—and their evolving friendship—slowly help his soul to heal. But with his feelings for Mandy still strong, Titus must choose between two very different futures, and find the strength and faith to claim the surprising gift of a fresh start.


My thoughts:

Titus Returns by Amy Lillard full of emotion, romance, and suspense.  This book flows easily and grabs you by the heartstrings when it deals with alcoholism, PTSD, forgiveness, and martial strife.       

Titus spoke to me throughout the book.  I felt so sad for the ordeal he went through and the struggles he had to overcome when he came back home.  He just wanted other people to forget and forgive. Forgiveness is hard though for some people in the community.  As they deal with their own healing, he tries hard to win back their respect. 

On the other end of the spectrum, I had a strong dislike for Mandy. I did get over this and in the end my feelings became a little softer for her.    
  
Titus Returns kept me up through the night reading and I still didn't get finished! Just about the time I thought I knew how it was going to end,  this book took yet another twist. So the ending had to wait till morning! 

A wonderful wonderful read.

Just to let you know I want a camel.
