Two Thousand Lines by Michelle Jester

It's the kind of story that breaks your heart a little when you read it. Also, the kind you have to read.

Olivia lives in a Sugar Mill, she works at a vet place, hoping to take over, once she is done with school. She created a good life for herself. It was all OK, she was holding it together until Luke came to live in her town. His grandmother died and he moved in next door. Now he is making her feel things, she was sure she couldn't feel anymore. Her life is unraveling, but the only way to move forward is to accept the past.

When the past is as hard and heartbreaking as is Olivia's that is not an easy thing to do. Olivia's mother died in a car accident when she was little and she gets to live with her step-father. he was extremely strick from the start when she started to grow up, the abuse changed with it.

I love Olivia, her character has come such a long way in the story. Her childhood was incredibly difficult and somehow she survived she manage to make a life for herself and I was so happy when she got a happy ending.

In the story, the past the present and intertwining together, to tell the story of Olivia and how she came to be, till the end when past and present collide and she has to make a choice, either to move on or stay stuck in the past.

I was crying for most of the story, it's heartbreaking and touching. It's the story of abuse and how that carries with the person into adulthood, of survival, and giving yourself a chance to live again.

I was blown away by it.

Olivia Brooks has been able to keep her life in Sugar Mill, Louisiana held perfectly together, far away from the small town where she grew up. Even though her past still haunts her, she has found a perfect process of surviving, until a string of events brings Luke Plaisance to Sugar Mill and turns her organized life upside down. 

While Olivia fights to hold on to the life she’s created, unraveling it may be exactly what it takes for her to truly survive. She must accept her past to live or let it threaten the only future she’s ever wanted. Because some secrets can’t stay buried… and shouldn’t. 

An inspiring and heartbreaking tale of abandonment, survival, and purpose. A harrowing journey of self-discovery and perseverance.

happy reading,
