Love Unfeigned by Nadine C. Keels Love Unfeigned

Book Description

Love to the chords of a classic jazz band… From the first time Lorraine, a plucky and competitive girl, contends on the playground against Isaiah, an impish boy whose smile gleams in more ways than one, the two of them can’t help knowing each other. Neither can they avoid passions and misfortunes lining the path to young adulthood, and when the breakup of Isaiah’s family disrupts the haven he’s shared with Lorraine, their natural relationship is eventually threatened by jealousy, grave trauma, and abandonment. As one year follows another, and another, what might it take to reunite these two companions in love: love undeniably real and unbounded by time? “Everything didn’t have to turn out perfect. I just wanted you there.”



LU had be intrigued from the beginning. I will say I was rather confused throughout the majority of the novel, wondering where James enters. But then it started to make sense, I just wish that would’ve occurred sooner. Lorraine and Isaiah grew up together and held a special place in one another’s lives. I was hoping for more detail in regards to what was building between Isaiah and Lorraine as the story line skimmed over large chunks of time. This novel was fast paced but even still I knew Isaiah was that special someone for Lori. How welcoming Lori’s family is with Isaiah through his difficult family transition was heart warming and beautiful. How Isaiah copes with his further difficulties by pulling away was frustrating to observe as the pain Lori experienced was evident. It wasn’t until the end of LU that we come to understand his thought process and decision making in the choices he made. I enjoyed Lori and Isaiah’s story bet felt a lot was lacking and wanted more detail to form a solid connection with the characters. Give this a try and find your next crush. Rating: 3 stars
