As a Reviewer for many of the major publishing Houses, and also for individual authors, I have come across many Inspirational novels that ---when they should have touched me ---only left me feeling a bit disappointed. I can honestly say that when I read a book by Pamela Thibodeaux I know that I will love it and then go on to highly recommend it to others.
THE VISIONARY doesn't disappoint. Ms. Thibodeaux has a unique talent in bringing to vivid life all of her characters, and by the time you've finished reading the book you feel as though you personally know each person portrayed. This particular story has two characters the readers will always remember long after finishing the book. Twins, Taylor and Trevor Forrestier, not only share a business ---but they share a family secret that nearly destroyed them in their childhood years. Because of the horrific past, both siblings rely on each other, protect each other, and are closer than the normal bonding of twins. I do not want to give away the story behind their traumatic past because it is such an integral part of the plot, but suffice to say it is based on actual, disgusting actions that happen in today's society --and often go unnoticed or unpunished.
Alex Broussard hires Taylor and Trevor to renovate and restore an old mansion that he bought. Taylor has a unique, almost-supernatural gift in being able to "see" into a place's past and visualize it as it was originally. Her gift has made her well known and the business has flourished because of it. When Alex and Taylor meet it's obvious there is a connection between them. But Alex soon learns that the twin's past keeps them shielded and stand-offish, and they stubbornly stay clear of relationships. Still, Alex is a remarkable man (a hero in every sense of the word!) and he knows he will not only have to take his time courting Taylor, but will have to help her heal from her past before she'll allow him into her life and her heart.
What proceeds in this incredibly touching, highly emotional story is the stuff love stories are made of. Ms. Thibodeaux wrings every emotion possible out of the reader as you cheer Alex on, hope for peace and forgiveness for Taylor and Trevor, and speed towards a beautiful happy ending.
Don't miss this one!
