Its all centered around Beckett, how he deals with with life he has, although we don't get as much on why he was in Foster Care, like we did with Cole and Blake (unless I missed it!)
Having read Blake and Livia's story which was the original start for me, it was great to have an insight as to why Blake ended up at the train station and I feel that any newcomer to this series will have an enhanced, fuller story. learning about the boys through their final school year.
It was nice to meet the enigma, that was Candy, and selfishly I would have loved to see some of her as they all grew up and lived their new lives.
Maybe Debra, a novella on what happened to her in the time frame of the other 3 books?
Knowing Beckett and the option to follow Candy or take the path he chose, gives him even more depth. Her certainly has many facets.
The bond between the brothers leaves you with such a warm fuzzy feeling, and the addition of Mouse - thankful we got to learn more about him too.
For me, it was bittersweet, but again any new comer gets an even better understanding of the man he was and went onto become.
I am really glad I came across Poughkeepsie even if I can't remember how that was, I still have my Poughkeepsie train timetable and other swag you kindly sent me some years ago.
An amazing beginning to an equally beautiful story.
Love does not always win, as is testament to Beckett and Candy, but the love of your family is the glue that keeps these boys alive, and living for a better future.
I loved Poughkeepsie before, but love the whole series even more now we know how it all did begin... And to look at John Quinlan is a perfect choice for Beckett as I had him in the forefront every time I read about his shenanigans. Even thought John would not have chosen the same path. !! :)
I ADORE the Poughkeepsie men with a passion. Beckett, Cole and Blake have broken me a time or two. I have cried many rivers over them during the last two years so it was with nervous excitement that I started the last ever instalment. But instead of the end, we went back to the beginning.
Poughkeepsie Begins in a prequel novella, on the long side at just under 200 pages. The thing I loved most about it was that I got more time with the brothers. Their bond was just as evident then as it was at the end of book three. They had all lived unimaginable lives and it was through each other that they survived it.
As I was talking out my feelings about this book with my BFF it became clear to me why I have to sit on the fence with this one. I found it quite difficult to end the series on a high by going back to the beginning. Even though I loved the boys, I didn’t love them as much here as I did at the end of Saving Poughkeepsie. I get that PB was to show their background and how their bonds had formed, but even then I felt we kinda started in the middle of their story. If you are new to the series and start here, you may feel gaps in the characters, as a lot of their back-story has to be assumed.
Don’t get me wrong, being witness to Beckett’s caring side was worth it. He looked out for everyone and sacrificed himself time and time again without even a second thought. But I already knew that, because he was the same character I fell for in the three main books. I guess that just shows Beckett has been and will always be loyal to the people he loves.
I can always dream for a little bonus novella of their future. I’d love to see the boys helping the next generation with their beautiful family surrounding them.
If you love Poughkeepsie, then it’s time to board for the final ride. ~Ava
*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.*
Poughkeepsie Begins is the prequel to The Poughkeepsie Series , and my favourite series EVER, by the awesome Debra Anastasia. It gives us the chance to walk along side Blake, Cole and Beckett through their teenage years and shows us more of an insight into their childhood, the horrors and abuse that moulded them into the men they became in their adult years, and the strong bond that grew between them to love and protect each other, FOREVER.
"Brothers?" he asked.
"Brothers," Blake responded, smiling.
"Forever," Cole added solemnly.
If your a big fan of the Poughkeepsie Series and love these 3 brothers as much as I do all grown up, mad and moody, sexy as hell and slightly broken, you must read how it all begins. If it is at all possible, reading Poughkeepsie Begins has just made me love them a whole lot more. There was many a time in this book my heart hurt, swooned and miss a beat. This story was bittersweet for me as I am so needy, I am just not ready to give these brother's up just yet *sobs uncontrollably* but hoping, in the future, that maybe Debra will revisit them in their more mature years (pretty please).
"For a few heartbeats, three teenage boys raged at their childhood. They hollered at fate. They screamed out pure need. It was the sound of Peter Pan dying, the ghost of dreams that would never be."
Debra Anastasia never disappoints, her writing style is very unique. She has you laughing one minute with her quick witted humour, swooning with her sexy scenes and in the next beat your heart is breaking. Her characters take control of your heart and stay with you forever.
Do I really need to tell you to go 1 click this awesome series NOW?
