Shades of Honor

 
Going back to where you came from is sometimes the hardest thing to do.  Radford Grayson does just that in this story of returning to your roots and facing your past.  He brings with him his four year old motherless, fearful daughter Rebecca.  Radford comes home to Fredonia, New York in 1870 after years of staying away- 1st during the war and then trying to fight his post war memories.  He comes back home to his three brothers Kyle, Boyd and Duke to help run the family sawmill.  Kyle harbours strong feelings against Radford walking back in to the family business and instead convinces Radford to help run the town livery owned by Evelyn Tucker( Kyles fiancee) and her ailing father. From there it's an emotional story about Radford fighting for inner peace, embracing love, forgiveness and accepting his past while moving forth with his life.  Throughout the story Radford attempts to remain loyal to his family and protect and shelter his emotionally scarred daughter.  The story showcases the emotional battle that all the main characters must overcome while bringing a divided family back together.
 
Review- I enjoyed the well written story.  I appreciate that the author focused on many characters in the book and their many states of emotion and turmoil.  It was an easy read for an adult based audience with very mild intimate personal scenes.  The book ended well and although the ending was predictable, enjoyable none the less.
