Bone Deep by Bonnie Dee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In the fall of 1946, grieving war widow Sarah goes to the carnival with her friends and is riveted by the tattooed man in the freak show, sporting head to toe body art. Later she discovers him hiding in her hayloft, escaped from virtual imprisonment since childhood by the carnival's evil owner. She shelters him on her farm, fighting a powerful sexual attraction while learning about his mysterious past and gentle nature. When a local child goes missing, Tom uses his psychic gifts to locate her, but his assistance in the case doesn't allay the town's mistrust of such an exotic stranger in their midst. Small-town prejudice tears the lovers apart and a very real threat from carnival owner Art Reed endangers them. Can they rise above obstacles of fear and hate to create the family both have always craved?
"Skin is skin, Grace. The tattoos are only on the surface, you know. He's a man." A sexy, vulnerable, intense, attractive, sweet, gentle and loving man."
This a story about understanding, accepting, and loving someone despite of his/her imperfections..
Sara, our girl here..is a lovely woman, inside and out..I cannot express how awesome she is, not minding what other people think ..she did what she wants..and that's to love a broken , abhorred for how he looks.. but is a sweet and gentle man inside. I adore her for not being judgemental and doing what she think is right in-spite of the people telling her to do the opposite and risking her own reputation.
Tom, an abused, broken and tattooed-covered man against his will..is a sweet and gentle man once you get to know him, it pains me to know that he himself thinks that he doesn't deserve any good in his life and no one can truly accept him for how he looks.
I did enjoy reading this story, and it reminded me that..a beauty from within is what truly matters and that in order to be happy one must be strong enough to ignore what other people might think and say..it's those people who care that understands you.
