Note: Since I’m posting today, I’m not planning on posting on Monday as well. Sorry for the confusion. 🙂

{no cover this time; long story. You can see it in the blog tour graphic. :)}

Two souls don’t find each other by simple accident. ~Jorge Luis Borges~

Levi thought he was making this journey alone. But when he meets an eight-year-old girl at the train station, that plan is turned on its head.

Casey is running away and finds out that Levi is too. They decide to journey together and their lives are suddenly bound together in a journey they will not soon forget.

Both children come from abusive situations and are running from the dangers of their previous life. Levi is confident he can handle this on his own, but when Casey is injured on the journey, he must seek help from the first person that comes into his path, or rather people. Mr. and Mrs. Bellworth are simple farm folk with a heart for kids and a passion for serving God. When their unconditional love and gentle care surrounds Levi and Casey, the troubles of their previous lives melt away and they start to flourish. But when Casey is dragged back into the abusive world she came from, the emotional trauma, pain and distrust resurfaces. Will they be forever bound by their past? Or will God answer their prayers?

My Review:

This was an amazing book and I enjoyed it very much! The emotions… ❤ ❤ I literally had tears in my eyes a couple times. 🙂 It was special… I liked reading about the different characters, and how they felt at different times. There were a couple spots where I felt like I was speed-reading (actually, I probably was… 😛 ) because the action was so intense… I like that in a book. 😉

There were some things that I didn’t like:

  • there was at least one “darned” (I know most people would be okay with that; but I’m not… sorry) 😦
  • when Levi “gets saved”, he doesn’t repent of his sins, and that’s a big part of accepting Christ!
  • it is mentioned multiple times that people are being “sassy”, and it’s not referred to as a bad thing… I don’t think that needs to be encouraged. :/

I know it seems like I’m being super negative here, but really, I do recommend this book! It was really good! Those were just a couple things that I didn’t appreciate. :/

You can read my review on Goodreads by clicking here. That is where I will post updates if I ever read this book again (I usually don’t update them on here just because it is easier to do it on Goodreads).

I thought I would share some quotes from the book…

Interview with the Author:

Hi, Victoria! I’m excited to welcome you to my blog today!

  • How long did it take for you to write Bound? 

3 months for the rough draft.

  • Is anything in Bound based on happenings from your life? 

Not necessarily based, per-say, but there were a lot of life experiences that played themselves into the story.

  • What was your favorite scene to write? 

Ooh, tough call! I would probably have to say either when Mikayla was pleading with Jason, or the Epilouge. There is always something magical about those two words, The End.

  • Which is your favorite character?

 I honestly don’t know how to answer that one! They are all my babies! And I adore each of them!
