Love Unfeigned ... Nadine Keels
Love to the chords of a classic jazz band, spanned over more than a decade…Lorraine: plucky and competitive. Isaiah: impish, with a smile that gleams in more ways than one.
From the time the two first square off for a wall ball battle as children, Lorraine and Isaiah can’t help knowing each other. But neither can they avoid passions and misfortunes lining their path to young adulthood. After Isaiah's family breakup disrupts the haven he’s shared with Lorraine, their relationship is threatened by jealousy, abandonment, and a life-altering trauma too grave to…forget.
As one year follows another, what might it take to reunite this divided man and woman in love: a love unbounded by time?
Love Unfeigned by Nadine C. Keels quickly shot me back to my middle school days, the excitement of first crushes and the pressure of fitting in. Keels quickly moves her characters ahead, keeping the flow of the story even and building up our interest to see just how far along in life she takes them.
A contemporary young adult story enhanced by the realistic feelings of today's society. Lorraine's personality is bold and strong, but her feelings are kept in check by the teachings of her family and church. The meeting and renewing of friends during the course of this story brings some surprises, as Keel reveals events that happened to Lorraine that adds to why her feelings and trust in men are the way they are.
A wonderful romantic read.
