Unbeloved by Madeline Sheehan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There are some authors that you know will get at least 4 stars from you just because you opened the book. Enter Madeline Sheehan. Her books are not filled with roses and unicorns, but with grit and grime. Through that, there is an overwhelming presence of love. Dorothy's story is a hard-won and enduring story of love, loss, and third chances.
This book takes place about 7 years after the events of the last book, and the action never stops. Hawk has a secret past that catches up with him, and forces he and Dorothy to come to terms with their feelings for each other. Meanwhile, Jase comes to terms with himself and his family.
We also get to touch base with our favorite (and not so favorite) Horsemen and their old ladies. We see the generational difference between the older old ladies and the younger old ladies, trailblazing and creating their own history. There were many laugh out loud moments, but sweet and tender moments as well. Such a great, captivating read! MS keeps you turning the page, eating up every single detail, as well as whetting your appetite for what's to come.
