Review

What I love about Mia Sheridan’s romances is that there is a fated, larger-than-life feel to the love stories. I get swept away wholly… into the conflicts, the heartbreaks, the longing, the tears and the eventual emotional surrender of two people meant to spend their lives together. I felt taken once again with Preston’s Honor—the story of two friends with vastly different upbringings, whose love for each other grew through the years. But their feelings were hidden, lost by what was left unsaid, thwarted by good intentions and reckless promises between brothers.

“I gave her up for the honor between us, the honor I tried so hard to hold on to despite my feelings.”

We meet Annalia, the daughter of a poor migrant worker, a girl who grew up unwanted, but who loved the escape of playing with the Sawyer boys, twins Preston and Cole. Even as teenagers, Annalia (Lia) and Preston secretly longed for each other’s affection. But a brother’s promise kept Preston away from Lia, opening the door to misunderstanding and heartache.

“To hell with my word being any good. To hell with anything that didn’t involve my lips on Lia’s and the proclamation that she was mine, that she’d always been mine, regardless of contests or a spit-wet handshake, or even my palm on a Bible and the eyes of a thousand people bearing witness to a sworn oath.”

But one night, their emotions best their good intentions, and they collide with all the pent-up lust, love and longing they felt. Unfortunately, those moments of bliss unleash a tragic chain of events that would change everything.

Months after struggling with a life that should have been heaven, Lia leaves Preston and her new baby behind without word or reason. Each fighting a wave of despair, grief and hopelessness that would breed resentment.

Six months later, Lia is back, intent on reclaiming her life and those she loved. But after everything that’s happened, she returns to a Preston who’s hardened after the struggles he’s faced without her. It’s a gut punch for both of them.

“I needed to come to terms with the fact that Lia had always been my weak spot, and apparently even after her betrayal, that hadn’t changed.”

Through flashbacks from the past intermingled with the present, Lia and Preston begin to open up to each other in ways they never had, to see if they can heal and have a life together.

“My heart, it seemed, knew only how to beat for him, like the wings of a bird soaring through an endless sky. As blue as his eyes and as warm as his touch had once been on my skin.”

With so many poignant moments, you can’t help but be swept away by Lia and Preston’s story. So much passion, such depth of feeling evoked by Mia’s thoughtful prose. If you’re looking to get lost in a story that just makes you feel and feel and feel, Preston’s Honor is the perfect escape.

About Preston’s Honor

There were two brothers—identical twins—and though I loved them both, my soul belonged to only one.

Annalia Del Valle has loved Preston Sawyer all her life. The daughter of an impoverished migrant farmworker, she grew up as an outcast in what was no more than a tiny, cooped up shack in California’s Central Valley. But her heart found freedom in the land, in the wide-open spaces of Sawyer Farm, and in the boys who were her only friends.

Preston has yearned for Annalia since he was a boy. But a sense of honor kept him from pursuing her until he’s unable to hold back any longer and their worlds—and bodies—collide one hot summer night. A night that sets off a chain of events that will alter their lives forever.

Now Annalia is back in town after disappearing without a trace for six long months. Determined to reclaim her heart, her life, and the baby she left behind—the son who was created in a moment of lust and love and pent-up yearning.

Preston has survived grief, a ravaging drought, and the despair of heartache, but he’s not sure he can survive Annalia again. And he might be unwilling to try. Will pride and bitterness keep him from the one thing he’s always longed for?

How do you heal what is irreparably broken? How do you forgive that which is unforgivable? How do you discover that real honor comes not from circumstance, but from the place deep in our hearts where truth resides? And how do you move beyond the wounds of the past to discover that some loves are as solid as the ground beneath your feet, and as enduring as the earth itself?
