Paige Simon was the only girl Declan ever loved. The only one capable of silencing his voices, the only person to ever have faith in who he was, until the day her faith turned to doubt and destroyed everything they’d made together.

Declan O ’Connell was the only person Paige could be herself with. The only one she could rely on, until the day she was forced to make a choice that would condemn them both.

They’ve had years apart, and second chances don’t belong to the damned. But when you come face to face with your savior, it’s almost impossible to walk away. In order to move beyond the sins of their past, and forever silence the demons in his head, they’ll have to risk it all.

But with love, there are real reasons to be afraid and, sometimes… your salvation is your damnation.

MY REVIEW

This was the first time I've read a book by A.M. Johnson, but it won't be the last. Her writing was beautiful, the plot was original and well-developed, and this story was packed with dynamic characters.

Declan and Paige were high school sweethearts. One day, one choice changed the direction of their lives and tore them apart. After nine years apart, they realized that their love never died, but they had to work on forgiving each other... and themselves.

Declan was the obvious star of this story. As sympathetic a character as Paige was, all of my attention went to Declan. He showed me so much strength. He was battling both depression and psychosis and was still able to find and appreciate beauty and life. Despite his lows. Despite his struggles. I smiled each time he did. It felt like a small victory. Every time his voices spoke up, my heart suffered a twinge. I was impressed that through it all he had such unwavering support from his family. His brothers, Liam and Keiran, were amazing and I'd be interested in reading their stories.

Declan and Paige conquered many obstacles and beat back their demons and I was immensely satisfied with the happily ever after they finally achieved.
