The Secrets of Constellations was selected by Barnes and Noble as a Top Indie Book for February and March, and on Amazon, it hit #1 Best Seller and #1 New Release in Teen & YA Adoption.
It’s been sixteen years since Norae Whelan’s adoption. She’s conquered her past by baking her way through her challenges. All that’s left is culinary school, until a unique stranger offers her an opportunity to learn the truth of her birth and with it, the trial of facing down what she thought she left behind.
Her birth mother’s hometown is a place where memories hide beneath the floorboards of an eclectic house. Inheriting a house and all its mysteries is one thing. The instant attraction to Orion Reise is another. There’s only one problem. Orion’s blind, and the reason behind it lurks through the downtown streets, dying to take him away.
With the end of summer fast approaching, Norae must make some big decisions. She’ll have to decide if falling in love with Orion is worth the price of letting go of her past and embracing a potentially, disastrous future.
This is such a sweet YA romance, and I felt like it was unique too.
I love how this brought together some things that I don't read about a ton. Adoption and living with and loving someone who is blind.
It's got young love and it's got two people who heal through each other and their own life problems.
It has wit and banter that cut through the heavier issues. It's really well-balanced.
This is a YA Romance that is a little deeper, which I really enjoyed. It's not cookie cutter and it's not all sunshine and rainbows. But in the end it is a beautiful story with so much heart.
