While the first two books of the series do feature couples, the women’s stories/backstories are the ones that are more raw and exposed. In writing Unbearable, Gammon reveals the brutal, ugly pasts of both Booker and Tess. It is easy to see how those pasts pull them together and still push them apart. Their emotional journeys are quite compelling.
Creating a very palpable sensation of ‘waiting for the other shoe to drop’ is another thing that Gammon does well. Once she sets the stage, she makes it impossible to put the book down. 5 stars
I have really enjoyed the Port Fare Series.
