Book Description

Reviewers say Kathryn Shay knows teenagers. As a high school teacher, she has dealt with troubled kids like those in this story. She also grew up in a small town, near a race car track.

As kids, the stock car racing town of Glen Oaks called them The Outlaws, but no one knew the hoodlums on the streets would grow up to be upstanding citizens. Their leader, Linc, has become a minister, but never got over his first love, Margo, now an atheist because of her upbringing in a religious cult. Beth is lonely after the death of her young husband, Danny, until Tucker, the man who blames himself for Danny’s death, comes to town. And Annie has overcome emotional and physical scars from her youthful marriage to Joe, but will her progress be enough when he reenters her life five years after their divorce? Troubled young teen, Ronny, reunites all of them, and in trying to help the boy, the three couples uncover a passion for each other that can’t be denied.

Praise for TRUST IN ME
“An unusual and compelling tale. I don’t know when I’ve been more involved in a novel’s characters and story.” The Romance Reader

“A master story teller…don’t miss this book or you’ll be sorry you did.” Reader to Reader Reviews

“Talk about emotional, heart-wrenching stories…be prepared for an extraordinary reading experience that will linger in your thoughts for a long time.” Tanzey Cutter, Old Book Barn Gazette

“I don't know how I missed this author before, but she's on my automatic-buy list now. What a great book. Controversial subjects handled in a sensitive and yet honest way--characters that just walked off the page, real and warm. The story just kept coming. A heart toucher, about problems that really happen with no easy solutions. Wonderful! Don't miss!” A Reader

“This is definitely another hit for Kathryn Shay. The story is well written and easy to follow…it involves some very deep issues which some authors may not cover quite as well as Shay does. The characters are very real, likeable, compassionate and understanding even with the issues they are faced with.” A Reader

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Hit for Shay 17 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is definitely another hit for Kathryn Shay. The story is well written and easy to follow--even with all the different characters and subplots. The story involves some very deep issues which some authors may not cover quite as well as Shay does. The characters are very real, likeable, compassionate and understanding even with the issues they are faced with. Although I loved Tucker and Beth, Margo and Linc's story was my favorite--having to work through some serious issues to be together, but being able to depend on their love through it all is great.
Although it is not tied to this book, if you haven't read "Promises to Keep" you should--it is a wonderful book too and Shay also tackles some serious current issues with her great writing skills.
Keep it up K. Shay--you are on your way to being on my must read list.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good book, but each should have had their own story. 10 Feb. 2003
By Huntress Reviews - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Years ago, a group of young people formed a group called the Outlaws. Time and trajedy have separated them. Now, they are coming together again.
Linc had been a bad boy, but found God and became a pastor, in the process separating himself from Margo, the love of his life. The longing for each other has never faded though, and now they both will face a critical moment where their relartionship to one another and to God will have to be resolved.
Beth's husband died in an auto racing accident, leaving her son fatherless and troubled. The man responsible, or who rather felt responsible, has returned home, and represents her son's best shot at having the help he needs. What lies between them is another thing.
Finally, Annie find that she has to face the man who abused her and almost caused her to lose her child. Joe Murphy claims to have reformed, but has he? Does he stand a chance with his fragmented family or not?
*** Although each story would have been better served in its own book, each one of them is a moving tale of friendship, the truest form of love. Linc and Margo's story particularly will appeal to fans of Father Greeley, where God is the most interesting character, and the one with the best sense of humor. ***

5.0 out of 5 stars Great author, great book! 4 Feb. 2003
By mplvs2read - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm not going to sit and write about the story, you can read the editorial reviews for that. This is a great story, great characters and the author knows how to put it all together. I read her last book and I am very impressed with this author. Both her books are worth every minute and penny spent. She pens a good story and has a different way of writing then most of the "popular" authors that make her stories interesting. She is on my
list as a "have to get as soon as its out."

4.0 out of 5 stars strong psychological contemporary romance 4 Feb. 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In Glen Oaks, New York, retired racing car champ Tucker "Menace" Quaid comes to town to try to revive the flailing track. He accepted the invitation of the town leaders because he feels guilty that ten years ago his driving caused the death of a local rival Danny Donovan. Danny's teenage son Ron hates Tucker and slashes the visitor's vehicle. The police arrest Ron for the vandalism, but his mom Beth and his Uncle Linc Grayson intercede. When Tucker learns who the teen is he wants to let him go because he blames himself for the lad's troubles. Shockingly, neither Beth nor Linc accuse him of negligence.
Tucker's presence leads to Ron spinning further out of control. Adding to his woes is that his mother and his father's killer are falling in love. The members of the Outlaws, a former gang of disenfranchised teens in the early 1980s, are divided with what Tucker did to one of them and the support he receives from their former leader Linc and his sister Beth.
This contemporary romance provides the audience with a strong psychological look at the surviving five members of the Outlaws, Ron, and Tucker. Each one of these seven characters carries tons of baggage with their ability to cope and adapt varying. That makes for a deep read, but the complexity of so much mental stress is difficult to follow. Readers will trust in Kathryn Shay to provide a thought-provoking novel that focuses on how nurturing makes the adult complete.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enriching, emotional and poignant 2 April 2003
By Desmond Chan - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This triptych of a romance marks yet another triumphant attempt by under-rated writer Kathryn Shay. Earnest and constantly moving, Trust In Me tells of the struggle of the rebellious Outlaw gang growing up in Glen Oaks after the group was disbanded and reunited a decade later. Much have occurred: Joe Murphy returns as a reformed husband and seeks forgiveness from ex-wife Annie who is traumatized by his past abuse. Linc who is now a pastor is afraid to marry Margo who swears anathema to God and his beliefs - an imprint left by her pious mother. Tucker Quaid, a retired NASCAR racer decides to mitigate his guilt of causing Beth her husband in a racing tournament by developing the industry in Glen Oaks. He faces the wrath of her son Ronny but gains unexpected solace and a chance of love in the widow. Under-rated Kathryn Shay sculpts her characters with emotional delicacy and packs compelling human drama to deliver an enriching story of love and its healing power.
