Aptly titled, True Surrender explores the many facets of truly surrendering oneself, physically and/or spiritually, to life experiences. At what point does physical pain and bodily injury force an individual to either fight back or throw in the towel? At what point does an individual who has lost faith in God recover it, if ever? And once an individual discovers the answer to any or all of these, which may reoccur throughout a lifetime, how does one proceed forward from that point? These facets and more are subtly examined within the pages of the novel.
The book itself is offered in paperback and Kindle formats. With multiple deadlines looming, I opted to download it to my Smartphone. Not my usual choice as I prefer to actual hold and thumb through the pages of a book which is more durable whereas the download is toast should I misplace or break my phone. Nonetheless, I was impressed with how tangible and clear the characters and situations came across with only a black and white text rendering on my phone display. The storyline is strong enough to stir up the readers imagination and convey plenty of emotion without the aid of digital imagery or illustrations.
I am on the staff of an online publication, BikerHotline.com, and this novel fits in well with our readers since the author has been a "biker chick" since she was 16 years old and describes it as her "greatest escape". As co-owner of the motorcycle accessories businesses Leader Motorcycle [...] and Desert Dawgs [...], Tracey is also a singer/musician. I would sincerely recommend this book as a perfect read for a lazy weekend afternoon or two with enough time to mull over the thought provoking conflicts encountered by Cramer-Kelly's characters. For more details, visit [...] where there are also "interviews" with the characters in True Surrender.
Aaron's character was vividly portrayed as the military man who has ultimately seen war, faced death when he is tortured by his captives, beaten it and is forever scarred, with loosing his legs. His character comes with all the emotions of a traumatized military soldier....head strong and independent despite the amputation of his leg, learning to accept that he will be forever scarred, and realizing that his prosthetist is the woman he left over 10 years ago.
Holly's character is one that will tug at your heart. Aaron left her over 10 years ago, yet when he's brought to her hospital for his surgery she ultimately takes the dive into his care and is there to help him. She's there to show him that life can still go on, that he can still be the man he was when she was with him.
Then the suspense kicks in. Circumstances arise, and Aaron finds himself questioning his career, his life, his heart. With some twists and turns, and unexpected pieces to the puzzle, Aaron and Holly's struggle with reclaiming the love they once had, redemption and deceitful secrets come to rise, this is one greatastic military romance!!!!
I highly recommend this story with 4 Books. It's filled with emotions, gripping story line, lovable characters and a powerful message of surrendering ALL life's problems to God and moving forward. I can't wait to read another fabulous story like this from this talented author!
In part with a blog tour, this review originated from my blog, Reviews By Molly.*This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review*
When I finished this book, I felt extreme gratitude to those serving in our Armed Forces. What Aaron went through both at the hands of the terrorists that kidnapped him and by his own best friend was heartbreaking. He suffered from post traumatic stress and had to battle a possible addiction to pain killers. His only bright spot was rekindling his relationship with Holly Rossiter. His everyday battles seemed incredibly real and made you appreciate the spirit and rebuilding of faith in himself and others that got him to where he was at the end.
Holly had her own share of heartbreak, her husband being killed two years before in a gas station robbery, but she was more of a half glass full, rather than empty type of girl. She knew when to take a tough stance with Aaron and when to open her heart up to him.
A nice read that shows the resilience of the human spirit.
