I didn’t want to be born. Something went wrong along the way, and I’ve been unsure about my purpose on this earth ever since. If I was hit by a car, if I fell off a cliff, would anyone care? Living in Cornucopia with my sister wives under the watchful eye of our husband, Allred Lee Chiles, has turned me into a robot, unable to feel or think for myself. I’ve been looking through a cloudy glass, not trusting myself or others.
But a man came down from the mountains. I’m captivated by Gideon Fortunati, his name expressing all that he is—keeper of my fate, master of reality, teacher of my future. Gideon’s purifying power has enlightened me about my capabilities. I don’t have to let The Prophet take my daughter and marry her off to that old man. I was guilty of dirt and sin, but I can take my life back now.
I was exiled to this godforsaken wasteland in Utah by our MC Prez. My entire existence has been a struggle, a futile tirade against my maker. I ranted against my fate, and in answer I was sent Mahalia. A naive victim of that twisted false Mormon sect leader. He’s tried to mangle her like a spineless puppet, like he has all the other women—the other girls.
Before I met her, I was a child. Now I’ve given up childish ways, and I can see everything in a mirror, face to face. Faith, hope, and love were all handed to me, and the greatest of these is love. I’ve come too far. There’s no surrender now.
It didn't look that far on the map.
"Follow Gideon and Mahalia on their journey Through a Glass and discover the twists and turns that have made this my new favorite book by Layla Wolfe. I look forward to the next in the series and would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading well written stories with an adventurous and sexy theme." ~ Nikki, Tasty Wordgasms
"It kept a steady pace throughout and was well written. I enjoyed the fact that it was done in dual POVs and did have a few laughs." ~ Michelle Booklover, One Click Aholics
So I was really excited to read this story but once I really started reading it I just couldn't get into for the life of me. It's slow and doesn't make sense at all to me. I really enjoyed the way the author has written it just wasn't for me. The mixture of religion and a bad ass biker just didn't sit right. The author did have great flow as far as her writing and the story line. I just think it took to long to get to the point of what was happening and the outcome took even longer to figure out. Most of the story it doesn't even seem that it's a MC type story. Do have to say that the characters are very much intense and hard not to love just they didn't fit the story of a whole. I was hoping this was going to be a mind blowing story as the cover really drew me in and the blurb helped, but once I got reading it I found it really hard to get into, and really hard to finish part of my mind was just not into the story and the other part was screaming at me to just hurry up and finish already. I'm sorry to say but this wasn't my cup of tea as much as I was hoping it was it's not. First time reading from this author and I don't know if I can read another one maybe something not as bible feeling as this one but that will have to wait for one day.
