    Book Review

Reviewed by Patricia Day for Readers' Favorite

In Forever Begins (Island Love Volume 2) by Linda Stiles Fox, Cody Wallace was content with life as he knew it. He was successful in business and felt in control. He hadn’t known much of a childhood life with both parents, for reasons you will discover for yourself, and so relished the companionship of Lily and her daughter, Faith. Lily has a trust issue – with good reason. She enjoys Cody’s company and loves to watch the affection he displays toward Faith; beyond that she does not feel worthy of more. She has given up. Her life consists of disrespect and abuse constantly thrown her way by Bruce, the partner she relies upon to sustain her, but she is afraid of him. Love no longer lives in her heart for any man. Bruce has successfully killed it.

This beautiful story follows Lily’s struggles to keep Faith stable and herself sane and safe. Enter Cody and his family. They are the epitome of love and generosity and yet Lily continually distances herself from what she views as unwarranted warmth. She is not used to it. To tell you more would spoil Linda Stiles Fox’s delightful romantic gem. I read the book quickly because it was so engrossing. It reveals the many ups and downs of relationships between people from totally different social backgrounds, and how or if they can succeed. Page by page, I wondered if Lily could ever trust Cody enough to open her heart to him. Bruce relentlessly pursued her to destroy her. Does he succeed? Does she find love after the torment of her life? Only by reading this book for yourself will you find out. Thoroughly recommended.
