Rating 4 cups
Roy Vines chose love over his family’s inheritance. He has lived happily for a long time in North Carolina, building a family in the foundation of that love. Now he has two beautiful daughters, and he and his wife have the American dream. That is until Rosalind, his wife, gets sick and they are too poor to get her the medical attention she needs.
Roy is forced to go home to a life he left behind, including a boy who may be his son. Since his twin has been raising him, there is no way to prove the child’s identity. Rosalind is forced to choose between loving the child who believes he was abandoned by his father or leaving as Roy once did.
As a family, they must fight to keep together and strong even though the winds of change and webs of lies threaten their bond. Will they manage to mend the wounds that walking away from a life cause or will they shatter with a pain worse than they have ever before encountered?
A very well written and wrenching tale told from three split points of view, Leaving Before It’s Over is a story of family and the choices we make and how they affect who we become. In heartwarming and riveting prose, this storyteller has characters that are so real you can almost hear them breathing. A good family drama with an interesting plot.
