    I ll start by saying that this book gave me a plethora of feels One minute I was giggling and other minute I was trying to stiffle a sob I adored Lindsay s writing style Her writing moved me She ll suddenly throw a sentence heavy with poignance and truth that ll squeeze your heart and bring tears to you eyes.Okay, I am going to be completely honest, I didn t expect this book to be a tearjerker, just didn t even though the synopsis suggested that Now when you read the word tearjerker you I ll start by saying that this book gave me a plethora of feels One minute I was giggling and other minute I was trying to stiffle a sob I adored Lindsay s writing style Her writing moved me She ll suddenly throw a sentence heavy with poignance and truth that ll squeeze your heart and bring tears to you eyes.Okay, I am going to be completely honest, I didn t expect this book to be a tearjerker, just didn t even though the synopsis suggested that Now when you read the word tearjerker you ll decide that this book is not for you, because maybe tragedy and tears and that type of stuff is not your cup of tea, but I assure you that this book is pretty perfect.Relationships in some books feel forced, but Emma and Corbin s relationship was like a flowing river And I kept thinking about that Avril Lavigne song two rivers cause Emma and Corbin are like two rivers who ll get separated due to hindrances but they ll always end up together united again for all eternity.Later, I thought that the ending would be all unicorns, confetti and rainbows sparkling cause in most books the authors try to make up for the tears by adding extra cheese in the end epilogue, but here, the last chapter was indeed bittersweet and very satisfying I loved it After all, I didn t give it 5 stars no reason.I highly recommend this book

    My favorite character was Corbineven when he sometimes soundedlike a teenage girl than boy I m talking about raging male hormones that fluctuate during this time He was forced into adulthood early no spoiler as to why by three different events that happened in his life Even with some of the challenge of those events, he grew from them and was grateful unlike I could say for Emma.There were times where I got a little lost with the back and forth with the memories and felt lik My favorite character was Corbineven when he sometimes soundedlike a teenage girl than boy I m talking about raging male hormones that fluctuate during this time He was forced into adulthood early no spoiler as to why by three different events that happened in his life Even with some of the challenge of those events, he grew from them and was grateful unlike I could say for Emma.There were times where I got a little lost with the back and forth with the memories and felt like Emma dwelled on her sadness way too muchbut, everyone responds differently in life I just wished there wasgrowth for her as well.This was a cute read and could be very beneficial to a number of readers

    Voice of Innocence is such a good, good book I actually couldn t bare to put it down I just had to knowIt s such a heartbreaking story and I think that s the reason why I ve found it so difficult to write this review.Voice of Innocence it told via the point of view of both Emma and Corbin, not only during the present day but also through flashbacks that they both have This allows us to gain a clear understanding of their thoughts, feelings and struggles The flashbacks allow us to see Voice of Innocence is such a good, good book I actually couldn t bare to put it down I just had to knowIt s such a heartbreaking story and I think that s the reason why I ve found it so difficult to write this review.Voice of Innocence it told via the point of view of both Emma and Corbin, not only during the present day but also through flashbacks that they both have This allows us to gain a clear understanding of their thoughts, feelings and struggles The flashbacks allow us to see how their relationship progressed from their first meeting and first kiss to graduation and Corbin s arrest It s so tragic seeing Corbin and Emma reminisce over what could have been and trying to understand what they could have done differently.I adored both Corbin and Emma and just wanted to hug them both a massive hug Teenage Corbin was just so carefree and laidback, and so cute The way in which he obviously doted on Emma was just so aww Understandably, adult Corbin has lost his carefree attitude been falsely accused and locked up for nearly three decades has completely crushed him He is a shadow of the boy he was However, he still retains quite an immature aspect, probably because he wasn t able to grow up normally and experience life As my granny would say It s such a crying shame.I felt so sorry for Emma Being with Corbin allowed her to come out of her shell in a way and this is completely reversed when he goes to prison She secluded herself and like Corbin was unable to experience life Emma just went through the everyday motions I can t begin to imagine how brave Emma was to stay in her home town and face the pitying looks and whispers I would have run a mile Voice of Innocence is a fantastic and tragic story I would definitely recommend it However, you should definitely keep tissues handy I bawled my eyes out I look forward to any other books by Lindsay Detwiler

    Copy provided in exchange for an honest review This is the first book I have read by Lindsay and I can only give it 2.5 stars It is told in both Emma s and Corbin s POV, alternating from past and present events Corbin is the only reason why my rating is so close to 3 stars This book took me over a month to get through for numerous reasons.One being Emma Oh my word, I did NOT like her one bit In the present she is well into her 40 s but does she act her age No Whenever I got to past event Copy provided in exchange for an honest review This is the first book I have read by Lindsay and I can only give it 2.5 stars It is told in both Emma s and Corbin s POV, alternating from past and present events Corbin is the only reason why my rating is so close to 3 stars This book took me over a month to get through for numerous reasons.One being Emma Oh my word, I did NOT like her one bit In the present she is well into her 40 s but does she act her age No Whenever I got to past events told in her POV I could not contain my anger and irritation towards her She is honestly one of the most ungrateful characters I have ever read about I wanted to get physically violent with her so much and I am not proud of it Also, what she did in the end was unforgivable If I had respect for her, the end would have made me lose all of it Her actions were incredibly selfish now that she doesn t have only herself to think about Corbin Poor Corbin He has to deal with a lot of nonsense in and out of his relationship with Emma He tries so hard to be romantic with Emma but she never appreciates it and is always whining about something I did not want them together due to her horrible attitude.Even though I liked Corbin 100 times better than Emma, I still didn t form a connection to any of the two This was a case of insta love and I couldn t sympathize with them in any way so I wasn t invested in their story I felt like these characters felt TOO sorry for themselves and it made me want to roll my eyes at themthan anything It got old really fast.I didn t like how the story didn t give me the details I look for in a good book so I could envision the story better But in this case, it s fine since I wasn t invested From the very beginning this book had too much foreshadowing I grew to hate the end of each chapter only because I knew there was going to be a paragraph foreshadowing all the bad that was about to happen Once again, they felt too sorry for themselves It is so incredibly obvious about it too that once the other shoe dropped, I was just waiting to reach the end of the book and get it as far away from me as possible It wasn t mysterious, it basically told me what was going to happen from the very beginning I m not a fan of the way this story was executed at all
