I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
There were two brothers—identical twins—and though I loved them both, my soul belonged to only one.
Annalia Del Valle has loved Preston Sawyer all her life. The daughter of an impoverished migrant farmworker, she grew up as an outcast in what was no more than a tiny, cooped up shack in California’s Central Valley. But her heart found freedom in the land, in the wide-open spaces of Sawyer Farm, and in the boys who were her only friends.
Preston has yearned for Annalia since he was a boy. But a sense of honor kept him from pursuing her until he’s unable to hold back any longer and their worlds—and bodies—collide one hot summer night. A night that sets off a chain of events that will alter their lives forever.
Now Annalia is back in town after disappearing without a trace for six long months. Determined to reclaim her heart, her life, and the baby she left behind—the son who was created in a moment of lust and love and pent-up yearning.
Preston has survived grief, a ravaging drought, and the despair of heartache, but he’s not sure he can survive Annalia again. And he might be unwilling to try. Will pride and bitterness keep him from the one thing he’s always longed for?
How do you heal what is irreparably broken? How do you forgive that which is unforgivable? How do you discover that real honor comes not from circumstance, but from the place deep in our hearts where truth resides? And how do you move beyond the wounds of the past to discover that some loves are as solid as the ground beneath your feet, and as enduring as the earth itself?
We all know the feeling of picking up a book by that one author who always leaves us wanting more and where the writing makes us remember why we are proud to call ourselves readers. For me, that author will forever be Mia Sheridan. I spent two weeks last year reading her entire back catalogue and I was blown away by every word. The same can be said for Preston‘s Honor. If anyone told me some of my favorite Sheridan heroes would have the chance to be dethroned, I would have laughed in your face. Yet, here we are. Preston Sawyer is one of her best heroes to date.
This is the newest addition to Mia Sheridan’s “Signs of Love Series”. Like every other book in this series, it plays on the myth of a zodiac sign; this time Gemini. I was slightly familiar with the myth of Caster and Pollux, but what Mia Sheridan writes is even better than the original.
This is the story of Annalia, the shy and slightly timid daughter of an immigrant, who lives within the parameters life has set for her. The only thing outside those parameters are the twin brothers on the farm next door, Preston and Cole. They are as different as night and day. Cole is fun and easy going, whereas Preston is the strong silent type.
From a young age, the three of them have been friends, and we see the evolvement of that friendship throughout the book. But as they grow up, things between them begin to change. One decision between brothers, and the honor their father installed in Preston, changes the path of all their lives for good.
Yet, everything is about to change once again. Lia returns to her home town after having disappeared for six months, but Preston might not be ready for her return. He is a man who was about to lose everything, and did lose a piece of himself. Therefore he knows he can survive pretty much everything except maybe her return.
This is classic Mia Sheridan. I fell in love with this book from the first word. It keeps you intrigued from the beginning and the story unfolds before your inner eye. You fall in love with Annalia’s desire to be accepted, to give her a sense of belonging, but what I really fell in love with was Preston’s longing for Annalia.
All in all, if you are a Mia Sheridan fan, you will, without a doubt, love this book, and if you are a Mia virgin, this is the perfect book for you to start the journey of your life.
This book is simply beautiful, which is why I give it 5 stars.
