In Harmony by Emma Scott #inharmony








Blurb:

At seventeen, Willow Holloway’s life was torn apart. The happy, driven girl is gone, and she is left wracked by post-traumatic stress her body remembers even if she does not. When her father suddenly uproots the family from their posh penthouse in New York City to the tiny town of Harmony, Indiana, Willow becomes more untethered and lost under the weight of her secret. On a whim, she auditions for a part in the community theater’s production of Hamlet and unexpectedly wins the role of Ophelia—the girl who is undone by madness, and her love of Hamlet… 

Isaac Pierce is from the ‘wrong side of the tracks.’ The town bad boy. Girls pine for his attention and guys are in awe of him. That he’s an acting prodigy only adds to his charisma. Isaac utterly disappears into his characters; the stage is the only place he feels safe from his own traumatic home life. He wants nothing more than to escape to Broadway or Hollywood, and leave Harmony behind for good. 

No one can play Hamlet but Isaac, and when the director pairs him with Willow in acting class, they clash again and again—neither willing to open their hearts to anyone. But clashing leads to breaking, breaking leads to the spilling of terrible secrets, and soon Isaac and Willow find Shakespeare’s words mirroring their lives. When they are cruelly torn apart, neither know how this play will end—with madness and heartache? Or healing, love, and the discovery of who they are truly meant to be. 

In Harmony is a standalone YOUNG ADULT/NEW ADULT love story, and is intended for readers 18 and up. PLEASE NOTE, this book contains sensitive material such as physical abuse, and the aftermath of sexual assault.  Reader discretion is advised.


Oh my .... I don't know how many hankies I needed but...this book? It was amazing! Those characters are simply wonderful. Flawed, hurt, strong and wonderfully imperfect.

I hated to read about Willow's experience, I felt (and fought) with her when she met Isaac and the sparks started to fly and enjoyed every moment that brought the two of them together. Reading about the hypocrisy of the ones from the right side of the track, the "better ones", I was furious and shocked and when their actions tear Willow and Isaac apart...well, let's just say that my vocabulary may not have been very refined...

This book is intense and emotional and even though I needed a bunch of handkerchiefs, I enjoyed every single page of it!

★★
