To the moon and back…

From the stars to the ocean…

That was Marley and Cameron Bowen’s secret code.

Twins born just five minutes apart, they have the perfect life… Until tragedy strikes just weeks after their eighth birthday and their father is killed by a drunk driver. Having trouble coping with the loss of her soul mate, their mother tries to find comfort in drugs and alcohol… And an abusive man with a penchant for underage girls. No longer able to stand listening to his sister’s screams and cries every night for nearly three years, Cam takes matters into his own hands and they’re finally able to escape the nightmare.

They’re finally able to start over…

But the nightmare still haunts Marley. The years go on and she is forced to put on a smile, making everyone think that she is the perfect, well-adjusted teenager that she is supposed to be… Until she is faced with a painful reminder of her past during her senior year of high school and she’s no longer able to keep on the mask that she has been comp

Heart of Marley is a story that will suck you in from the start. It touches on the most deepest level of what children dace today. Even though the story at times bleeds through your soul, it shows the love of a brother for his twin sister and the battle to help her overcome her past. It's a phenomenal read that rocks you to your core. Cam and Marley's story is breathtakingly beautiful.

There journey shows the battles that this brother and sister face. It touches me on such a personal level because my childhood wasn't the greatest but, staying strong and overcoming such huge obstacle that slows your path to your true destiny is the key to making positive changes and becoming who you were destined to be from the start.

Marley and Cam are taken away from their mother to go live with their aunt and uncle. Marley is made to believe that she must keep her past a secret. Cam knows the truth. What will he do? Cams strength and Marley's courage really shines and shows you what love can do in battles and trials. Love truly does conquer all. This journey they embark on had me balling like a baby from the loss. I've experienced a lot of loss in my life the last few years. This book was a tough one but, at the same time it gave me inspiration. Thank you TK Leigh for such a touching book. It truly brought me to my knees.

The writers words bled off the page into your heart like a breathtakingly beautiful song, it touched you from the start. Those notes reach your heart and bleed through to your soul with impeccable beauty. The flow is phenomenal and easy to follow as if you are a part of the story from beginning to end. I would most definitely be reading her work again and anything she writes. Well done!
