I’ve read  and loved all of Elizabeth Finn’s books.  This was a “given”.


5 stars


A mistake made long ago . . .
Pain buried so deep . . .
When Bailey Trent returns home to her small Ozark mountain town after being away for nearly six years, she is prepared to face the ghosts of her past. It does not mean she’s prepared to come face to face with the cruelest of those memories.
Darren Cory’s life is a shell of what it once was, and when he’s forced to look at the cause of his agony over and over, hatred rises to further blacken his days. But hating Bailey also destroys him, forcing him to become someone he doesn’t recognize or want to be.
Can Darren find a way to move past the pain and forgive the woman he once cared so much for before his anger consumes them both? Or will he drag them both into the hell of an unforgiven past?

Unforgiven is a devastatingly heart-WRENCHING love story so full of emotions I couldn’t put it down.  And I wanted to several times because I felt like my own heart was breaking!

 Darren and Bailey always had feelings for each other.  Right at the turning point of their relationship, tragedy strikes…and Bailey is the cause.  Darren cannot forgive her, the woman he loves, for causing him his biggest loss.  She had paid the ultimate price for her mistake, losing her best friend.  Darren lost his sister and woman he loves in an instant.

 Now five years later and after paying for her crime, she has come home only to find out that Darren still lives there. And having years to work on it, he really wants to hate her.

 “Shut up…I hate you.  Do you understand me?  Your apology means shit to me.”

 And that is only the beginning of the story.  There is so much that happens from there but I already feel like I told you too much.  You MUST read it.  I cried so many times in this book.  I could understand both of perspectives and why they both felt the way they did.

 This is a story about love, tragic loss and forgiveness…for both of them.

 “It was where he’d given her what she needed to stay, and it was where he’d given himself what he needed to heal.  Forgiveness.”
