Corina Marion has a father problem—namely that her Red Cross doctor of a dad has finally returned home from sixteen years of war...
...as a body in a box to be buried.
Her mother is devastated, her friends shocked and saddened, her hometown in mourning at the loss of its local hero. And Corina, indifferent to the man she never met, is trapped in the middle of an emotional onslaught she isn't prepared to handle.
But when a strange old man confronts Corina at her father's funeral, he offers her an impossible opportunity: the chance to know the late Luther Marion. And in a moment of uncertainty, Corina makes a choice with consequences she can barely fathom.
A choice that sends her twenty-five years into the past. To the heyday of her father's hometown. Right on the cusp of the harrowing events that will shape his life...and his death.
And in order to return to her damaged home, supportive friends, and uncertain future, Corina will have to fight tooth and nail alongside the man she's resented her entire life. Because if she doesn't help fix the past she's inadvertently changed with her presence, Luther Marion may not live long enough to become a hero at all.
I Received an Electronic Copy from Netgalley, in exchange of honest review.
Beautiful. Breathtaking. Powerful. Spectacular Writing.
There are so many other words that I can use to describe this novel, expect that would take a while. I had a feeling that I was going to like this book once I read that it had to do with time travel, cause that always has been one of my favorites genres. I had read few through the years, but I didn’t realize that I would fall in love with book and the characters. You can’t help but fall in love the story and the characters, especially Corina and Luther. SOLACE will have your attention from first page, till the last and even afterwards. Most of all cause you can’t help but wonder what happens to Corina after, especially after the adventure that she had. I read few different time travel novels before, but it was nothing like SOLACE were. To go back into time, so she can get to know the father that she never knew? How can something like that not capture your attention? It did for me. At start I didn’t know how to think about Luther myself, but as Corina time traveled and got to know her father, and of course so did I. I felt everything that they felt, anger, fear, bravery. I could tell that it was not long that Corina realized that Luther wasn’t what she thought that he was.
One of my most favorite parts, was the fact that Corina got to travel to her father’s different time lines and yet he seemed to remember her every time that she reappeared. However, I was as surprised as she was when he finally figured out that she was his daughter. I did not see that coming. I couldn’t help but wonder how he managed to put two and two together. But if he wasn’t protective over her then, he became even more protective once he found that she was his daughter. Despite what Corina thought of him when the time traveling started, it wasn’t long before the two of them established a bond between each other, the one that Corina always missed out on with her father. I loved Corina right from the start, she was brave, and she didn’t let anyone mess with her and her friends, and of course she was bit stubborn, never takin no for an answer. You could see the change in her during the time travel, but then who wouldn’t change when you go through what she went through. I am just glad that she made through it alive, and got to know her father.
What caught my attention first was the cover. Just look at it, isn’t completely stunning? Also with a bit of mysterious look to it, don’t you think? You can’t help but wonder what is going on by looking at the girl on the cover. I know that I was when I came across the book on Netgalley. SOLACE was the first novel that I read by THERIN KNITE and it won’t be the last one. I want to, no, I need to know what other amazing adventures the author will come up with next. I enjoyed the adventures, the obstacles that Corina had to face and in general the story. It was unique and I couldn’t get enough, I found myself reading it most of day and at night, just so I know how it will all end. SOLACE was pretty descriptive and that’s what I loved about it, with all those descriptions, I felt as I was there along with Corina and Luther. An Amazing experience. A Magical story about family and forgiveness.
