Sins of the Father by Maria Gibbs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a phenomenal book and I will return to write my review real soon
Note best to read Book 1 first from the series ‘Children From The Streets’ both are heart-wrenching stories inspired by TRUE EVENTS Love then both equally.
Book 24 of my Goodreads Challenge
People often say books that follow on in a series are not as good as the first, but I beg to differ. I think this could even be better than Book 1 and that was an AMAZING heartfelt story too.
A Boy from the Streets
Book 1 A Boy from the Streets is the story of twins Jose and Pedro separated at birth one taken into a life of priveledge, the other left as a Street Child in Brasil. All were children who saw and experienced things that no youngster should ever have to witness or be part of.
In this Book 2, Sins of the Father all the boys are now grown men, but the story centres around Carlos the oldest of the brothers. His story is truly heartwrenching and to try and overcome his nightmares his brother Pedro suggests he write all his experiences down. The opening line drew me in:-
‘Ghostly echoes of my past whispered across the ages.’
As the young man begins to recall in detail his past life a whole can of worms is opened up. For the first time in his life Carlos finds himself drunk and ends up in prison.
However, his family are extremely supportive and with their help and the making of a new friend things start to change. But will a face from the past throw a spanner in the works and cause Carlos to fall ever deeper into his nightmares?
You will just have to read the series to find out, but read book 1 first. Both books are VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
I own this series in paperback and they look fab on my shelf of favourites. I’ve already read book 1 three times now, I love it so much. I urge you to try it for yourselves.
