    A Compelling Story with Heart

    Sworn to the Desert is a wonderful story with heart. I love how Hilarey weaves the characters’ stories between the present and the past. By switching between the main character Cori in the present, and Coribelle, her name and the chapters from the past, I was compelled to continue reading beyond each chapter, so I could get to where the last thread of the story left off. Of course then I needed to read another chapter, and then another. I found it best to just quit reading in the middle of the chapter, so I wouldn’t be tempted to keep reading through the night. I loved how through the broken places in Cori’s life we could clearly see the struggle with faith, beliefs, and religion. And how all of those ideas are also tied to family and relationships. Through all the hard dry places Cori travels through, we also see the best story of real love and redemption come shining through. I loved this book and look forward to catching up with the other books in this series.

    Highly recommend!

    A powerful story about family bonds, how the things we are taught as truth growing up can affect our decisions and a God who loves us so much, if we just surrender, will make beauty from ashes. I loved this story!

    A wonderful redemption story!

    Intriguing characters I want to read more about! What I loved most about this new book from Hilarey Johnson was how real to life the characters seemed. Neither Cori or Maleko ever felt over written or disingenuous. All the supporting characters felt real-to-life as well. Not all good, not all evil, pitied but not hated (mostly) and flawed in very real ways. The other thing I really appreciated is how the author handled difficult relationships and situations. They were implied in a somewhat vague manner, easily understood by the reader as to the author’s meaning, without unneeded explicit descriptions. This was an interesting perspective on the Mormon church. I grew up much like Coribelle, in the church but on the peripheral. Our church was not a fundamentalist one and I never knew of the controversial beliefs they held until I was much older and well away from it. My family were definitely “jack-mormons” who drank coffee, smoked and didn’t have us baptized at 8 years old. I identified with Coribelle’s dilemma of being involved but never fully included. I love how her story ended and was left wanting for it to continue! A wonderful redemption story I can definitely recommend and a fantastic wrap up to the Breaking Bonds trilogy. I was given a copy of this book prior to its release, this is my honest opinion and freely given.
