The Half Brother Holly LeCraw Fiction
SYNOPSIS: Charlie Garrett is a young teacher at the elite Abbott boarding school.
As he gets to know the school chaplain, Preston Bankhead, he starts to fall in love with his daughter, May, a student at the school.
When May is older, they start an intense relationship that quickly comes to a disastrous end.
Years later, May is back as a teacher at Abbott. And so is Charlie’s charismatic half-brother, Nick.
Nick’s magnetism soon has most of the school flocking to him, including May.
Through all the turbulence, Charlie is hanging on to a secret that forms a dark cloud over his life.
MY THOUGHTS: Throughout the book, it seems like everything around Charlie is happening out of his control.
There’s no way for him to latch on to something and stop the out-of-control merry-go-round. You’ll be frustrated on his behalf. And you’ll wonder how anything could work out.
Then comes a moment when everything collides. It’s breathtaking and it’s heartbreaking.
As you ride the merry-go-round with Charlie, you’ll be pulled in by the centripetal force, waiting for it to finally stop.
MY RATING: 4.5 out of 5
