Ever Since Pepper Winters share the idea of The Body Painter very 1st time years ago I want to grab a hold on that book . It was my Most Awaited and very highly anticipated book of the Year. And I must say it was totally different than I anticipated beyond my expectations. Story is as usual Very unique with completely new concept that one never could think about, Gripping, heart wrenching , soul shattering, full of thrill, suspense and mystery, unable to put down, very captivating and extremely painfully beautiful. Pepper winters’ s word has magic that took you straight into the world she created. Where we felt all the emotions which characters were dealing. This book just sucked me whole in and I am totaly consumed By the emotions it awoke inside me. Such as Emotions of Love specifically the agony of true and pure love ,hatred towards cruelty ,anger towards ignorant and abusive family, fierce wrath on those who took advantage of vulnerability.
Let me warn you, it’s a love story but not like fairy tales kind of with full of swoonworthy romance but the opposite, twisted and dark, with full of pain , abuse, helplessness, sadness, lonlines , an agonising tale of two lonely soul who love each other immensely but the bitter and cruel reality come between them no matter how strongly they fought with the brutality of their fate but it never let them together with peace and love.
I love equally both Gil and Olin. Both were lonely , damaged, broken. I loved The way their childhood love start, the structure of their love in the Past was sooo pure, Innocent and cute that made me want to protect them from evil and wicked world but cruelity intervene and tainted their pure love and in Present their Love for each other made me cried and killed me thousand time knowing they want to be together but they couldn’t, I felt the pain every time one rejected other’s love and kindness and the one who was dismissing other one ‘s love was dealing the great pain than the one who is rejected .
One hand Olin was Soft , kind hearted, selfless, helpfull ,empathetic broken but strong. On the other hand Gil was strong but vulnerable, damaged, protective for his Loveones.
Book is written in past and present context very skilfully. There was lots of twist and turns with the tinge of Suspense and mystery that would shocked you and the end of th book one is so mind blowing, the cliff hanger just killed me. Now the wait for the 2nd book The Living Canvas is become so excruciating. I couldn’t get peace until I know the conclusion of Gil and Olin’s heart wrenching tale of love.
Undoubtedly 5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ read. It’s a must MUST READ. You won’t be disappointed. And HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. All in all it was just amazing and outstanding book. An other MASTER piece in litrature by PEPPER Winters .
The Son and His Hope by Pepper Winters Highly Recommended 5* star read Unable to put down
Magical and at the same time very real
Where to start and where to end, this book just renders me in so many things that I find it hard to describe it, my thoughts are scattered between REN & DELLA and JACOB & HOPE (probably my review that’s why will not be in rhythm but I will try ) their love, their pain, their difficulties , their suffering, ah the feeling of agony too much to bear, it will left you many times on many places in a sobbing mess. literally it was excruciating whenever it comes to the memory of REN “Come find me on the meadow where the sun always shines, the river always flows, and the forest always welcomes. Come find me. Little Ribbon, and there we’ll live for eternity”
(view spoiler)[ the way he interact after his death in the form of letters and gifts it touch your heart painfully, and every time Jacob felt his presence and its kill me when Jacob finds box of letters to Ren by DELLA, and her manuscript of the book “come find me”(hide spoiler)] I felt all the pain the way they gone through in this book, it kills me million time throughout the book , all the characters felt so real that it doesn’t look like that those are just fictional character. All of them will be in my heart forever. NO DOUBT.
This book is all about Jacob wild son of REN AND DELLA WILD. A broken boy who is dealing the pain of his father loss, who afraid of love, and to be connected with family or other people around him, who knows death only that make him unable to love. He has everything a person can wish for but somehow is very very lonely.
And a girl Hope Jacinta Murffy A lonely and broken girl also but knows how to move on and how not to be afraid of inevitable but love fiercely. And accept the reality nd knows how to deal with life. And just like her name never ever give up hope. And just keep trying and try to love with all her heart.
I am in awestruck by the beauty of every single word of this book, it touches my heart SOOO deeply. This book is as usual very unique and different than other romance books and that’s makes its Pepper winters. She just slays me by her words, and she defiantly knows how to touch reader’s heart and makes them emotional mess that is beyond describable. This is undoubtedly best of the bestest book I have ever read along with “THE RIBBON DUET”. If it’s in my hands will defiantly give 100 stars for this marvelous book, and 100-star isn’t enough even. out of this world, such an amazing book. My love for The Wild Family has grown even 100 times more they all are really unforgettable. by reading this book I died many times and then come to life again, all the emotions and feeling a person experienced in a life time is enclosed in this magical book.
This book is everything you name it and it has. It’s all about LOVE, LOSS, PAIN, JOY, HAPPINES, FAMILY, BONDING, SUFFERING, DIFFICULTIES, LIFE AND DEATH. REALITY AND ACCEPTANCE. It’s a fight of love, and emotions, Fight of acceptance Fight the pain of loss It’s a fight for never give-up hope, There is pain, hurt, loneliness, But eventually love wins, LOVE ALWAYS WINS. He understands eventually what DELLA has always tried to teach him And he also finds his happily ever after, gradually and eventually. This book is itself a life journey. This book tells you a lesson also that is….
. “Be grateful for each day, even the dark ones”
Because no buddy knows what will happen in future so we shouldn’t be worry about what fate brings because we are all helpless in front of fate so just live in today, live every relationship make every moment precious and memorable. Live the life and accept the death as well and be prepare strongly for inevitable. But that doesn’t mean it stop everything but it means life goes on.
Truly and madly in love with this book along with Ribbon Duet. These are an Epic books in English litrature.
“Things you should know about me from the very beginning: I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son. I am happy being alone. And that is all I ever want to be.”
JACOB The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson. It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow. That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man. And nothing and no one could change his mind.
HOPE I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life. He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive. I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of sorrow that made me want to hug and heal him. I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father. We shared similarities. I recognized parts of him because they were parts of me. But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried. He stayed true to his vow to never fall.
Oh dear, where to start and where to end, I am stunned, heart broken,and my mind is a jumbled mess now but nevertheless i must say that I am deadly madly extremely in LOVE with this Book. This is the 1st time ever I am reviewing about any book and it’s not obligatory for me to write a fake review as I got the Arc but this book coaxed me to tell others what a worth reading this book . well I have to be honest. but I want to mention that English isn’t my 1st language and my vocabulary is very less so whatever I want to say probably wouldn’t justify what I am feeling right now after finishing this book.
It’s 100% Worth reading.
@PepperWìnters never ceases to amaze me, She is The Best among other AUTHORS. And This is undoubtedly the most amazing and on the Top of her other work .This is more than the best book literally. the story is soo unique it’s something more other than ordinary love stories. once you read it it will occupy your mind, your heart, your all being, your complete soul.
This story is not simple to describe It’s a bundle of feelings and emotions that you bear with the characters. The feelings like sorrow sadness lonlines helpless pain happiness Love envoy jealousy lust its so overwhelmed that it will make you an emotional wreck.
well I got The ARC 2 days ago by the evening of Sunday 18 Mar 2018 and since then I am a Emotional mess well I can’t decorate this review unlike other with emoji,images, Gif but honestly I can tell you the feelings I gone through since I start to read till end.all the feelings I mentioned above I felt with them. From the beginning it will just grab your all attention.as the story start I gradually grow with them each year they spent together . the agony the pain they felt, I felt the same.the bond they build it was so heart touching and unbreakable those characters just penetrate in my soul and show me their world. argh the pain specifically ,what I am gonna do about this. I just can’t get enough of this book . this book just left me wanted more of REN and DELLA
WELL I WILL start with Ren Oh my oh my .. what a strong Marvellous, stupendous , and extraordinary character. He is just out of this world which is full of shitty People among some good and nice. he was So INNOCENT Strong caretaker protector infect a full package of a strong man. from the beginning you fell in love with him and as the story grow you even fell harder in love with him. REN the child who ran away from slavery. (just to listen about a child who sold to slavery by his mother who means to take care of him,to love, to cherish him , itself break my heart). Physical and mental pain he endured in slavery and afterwards is so heart wrenching. he couldn’t get carefree childhood and he couldn’t get joyful adulthood either all just he got the hardship and burden of life and responsibilities towards the girl he took with him unknowingly and unintentionally but he fulfil his all responsibilities selflessly and love her and took care of her unconditionally. and become her the fierce Protector Her caretaker Her Best Friend Her father Her brother Lover infect her everything he Raise her so nicely and saw her become baby to girl and then women.
on the other hand Della as he said that she was his so like that she was his everything, His Family His home His love His Best Friend they both love hard each other .they endured the the hardship of life together and found solace in each other. But they way she love him is entirely different the way he loves the love between them hit your heart so hardly that you will feel it so long believe me

“What do you do when you meet your soul mate? No wait…that’s too easy. What do you do when you meet your soul mate and have to spend a lifetime loving him in secret? I’ll tell you what you do. You lie.”
Ren was eight when he learned that love doesn’t exist—that the one person who was supposed to adore him only cared how much he was worth. His mother sold him and for two years, he lived in terror. But then…he ran. He thought he’d run on his own. Turned out, he took something of theirs by accident and it became the one thing he never wanted and the only thing he ever needed.
I was young when I fell in love with him, when he switched from my world to my everything. My parents bought him for cheap labour, just like they had with many other kids, and he had the scars to prove it. At the start, he hated me, and I could understand why. For years he was my worst enemy, fiercest protector, and dearest friend. But by the end…he loved me. The only problem was, he loved me in an entirely different way to the way I loved him. And slowly, my secret drove us apart.
Oh dear ❤💔❤“The Girl and Her Ren” 💔💓💔 Just finished this book. While I am writing this review i am crying hard. So much pain, GODAMN, This is for sure that it will make you Ugly cry . And all the Reader who fell in love with Ren in the 1st book “THE BOY AND HIS RIBBON “ be aware that you All will fell more deeper and harder in his love than ever. Let me tell you this book was very hard to finish not because I am slow reader but it broke my heart into pieces so many times on so many stages that made it hard to continue reading. It wasn’t because I don’t like the Book or I don’t want to read more but it was because of those incidents , and their journey of life that make YOUR soul shattered into pieces and literally broke you . Mark my words fellows that This book is a Master piece in English literature. This book is about life. It’s about reality It will show you different face of life, Bad , good, ugly, beautiful, painful ,sorrow, happy, agony infect all the ups and down of an extraordinary person and Their struggle of life, this story is not about normal day people or not about Romance but it’s about love .The eternal love, never ending love , forever and always I LOVE THIS BOOK even the word Love isn’t enough to describe this book.this is beyond love .this is the bestest book ever by Pepper Winters . Even it will become and will remain always No 1 in the list of my favourite books by any AUTHOR. WHEN I reviewed “The Boy and His Ribbon” I mentioned that this duet will remain with you so long and now after reading 2nd book I must say it will with you forever. It is Unforgettable . I never felt any book character so real and so near but I felt REN and Della as much stronger that whatever life gave them, the pain, sorrow , joy , sadness, their struggle, hardship of life , I felt it hard like they way it’s happened with me like I am with them through out their journey, like they are part of me . Not a single moment I feel I wasn’t with them they never felt fictional. It was so damn real. I find it difficult to explain my feeling bcz I want to share but I need it spoiler free aswell. But probably will explain it better when its released The bottom line is this book touch my heart and soul.
“What do you do when you write down all your secrets? No…that’s not enough. What do you do when you write down all your secrets and the one person who should never read them does? I’ll tell you what you do. You hope.”
REN Ren didn’t know the meaning of love until he took Della for his own. To begin with he hated her, but as the months bled into years, he learned the opposite of hate, dedicating his life to giving her everything. Every sacrifice, every gift, he gave wholeheartedly. But then love turned to lust and ruined everything.
DELLA I was stupid to write my secrets down, but I’d been stupid before so it was nothing new. I couldn’t blame him, hate him, fix him. I tried to move on without him. But no matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to delete the secrets I’d written. Until something happened. Until he came back and read my stupid secrets. And nothing was the same after that.
