A Sweeping Standalone from New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters.
Series: The Ribbon Duet
“Things you should know about me from the very beginning:
I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son.
I am happy being alone.
And that is all I ever want to be.”
The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson.
It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow.
That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man.
And nothing and no one could change his mind.
I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life.
He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive.
I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of sorrow that made me want to hug and heal him.
I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father.
We shared similarities.
I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me.
But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried.
He stayed true to his vow to never fall.

Jacob Wild was born to two parents with a legendary love story. But losing his father so young taught him that love caused you too much sorrow. So he hardened his heart. Hope Jacinta Murphy met Jacob at one of the lowest times of his life. She felt drawn to the broken boy that only pushed her away with all his might. She tried over and over again to become his friend since both had lost a parent at a young age. Will Jacob ever allow Hope in or will she be destined for a shattered heart?
“Hope might be lost, but…so was I.
I’d always been lost.
I’d most likely always be lost.
And one lost person definitely wasn’t qualified to help another.”
I have once again fallen in love with the Wilds and their family. Jacob was so broken that it literally tore up my heart reading his story and feeling his emotions. Jacob and Hope definitely had that chemistry that kept pulling me in and I could hardly set down my kindle. The story is so beautifully told and all I could picture was that Jacob was definitely his father’s son. Ren’s personality lived on in Jacob because I couldn’t help but see him in his reactions to Hope and the people around him. The love of the land. The distrust of others. You won’t want to miss the continuation of the Wild family’s story.
I can’t recall another story that has gripped me so emotionally as the Ribbon Duet and Jacob’s book also fit quite comfortably in that vein. These stories bring me to tears but still leave me happy that that my soul experienced them.
