Bound Book Review and Blog Tour

A cheery hello to you all! Happy Tuesday! 
Today is the first day of Victoria's blog tour for her second brand new book, Bound. 
About the Book:
  Two souls don’t find each other by simple accident. ~Jorge Luis Borges~

Levi thought he was making this journey alone. But when he meets an eight-year-old girl at the train station, that plan is turned on its head.

Casey is running away and finds out that Levi is too. They decide to journey together and their lives are suddenly bound together in a journey they will not soon forget.

Both children come from abusive situations and are running from the dangers of their previous life. Levi is confident he can handle this on his own, but when Casey is injured on the journey, he must seek help from the first person that comes into his path, or rather people. Mr. and Mrs. Bellworth are simple farm folk with a heart for kids and a passion for serving God. When their unconditional love and gentle care surrounds Levi and Casey, the troubles of their previous lives melt away and they start to flourish. But when Casey is dragged back into the abusive world she came from, the emotional trauma, pain and distrust resurfaces. Will they be forever bound by their past? Or will God answer their prayers?
My Thoughts:
 I first read Bound last year when Victoria posted weekly snippets on her blog. (You may remember she released her first book, London In the Dark, earlier this year.) I love her writing style, and she did a great job of creating this whole, somewhat mysterious story.The beginning has a fantastic attention grabber and this is one of those books that will keep you turning the page. It's a well-written book with a great message. You won't want to put it down! I will warn you, though, Bound is a sad (and real) book; you might even shed a tear or two while reading. It's about a little boy and girl who come from two abusive backgrounds. There are a few places where physical beatings are mentioned, but Victoria did a great job of writing those scenes and didn't go into too much detail.
 The main characters find they aren't only bound by their hurtful backgrounds, but end up also being bound by the saving power of Christ. And they find forgiveness, hope, and peace, which can only be found in Jesus.  Bound is a book that I really enjoyed reading (and will re-read), and would recommend to ages 13+. 

*Victoria, congratulations on publishing your second book, and thank you for allowing me to read, review, and be a part of your tour! Keep writing for the Lord, girl!*

  1. Hi Victoria,
    Thanks for having this giveaway. One of my favorite things about fall is the leaves changing and the cool weather.

  2. Hello Ashley! *waves* I came over to check out this post after seeing the link on Victoria's blog. :) I'm excited about Bound ... I don't read a lot of contemporary or stories of this type, so when I do get around to it, it's going to be something new for me! :D

    1. Hello Kellyn! Nice to meet you. Thank you for visiting and saying hi. :)
