Love and War Standalone # 1
Genre- Adult Contemporary Romance
Publication Date- September 29th, 2014
One of the few white kids in a rural Kentucky town, Logan Whyte always kept to his own kind out of self-preservation. He never considered himself racist, but that didn’t stop him from falling in with the wrong crowd that celebrated hate as much as he fought it - or from ending up in prison for eight years on an armed robbery charge.
A successful and educated black woman, Katie Andreassen is tired of being accused of betraying her own race. Her lonely isolation, coupled with her grief over losing her mother, inspire her to create a new pen pal program at Capshaw State Penitentiary, where her father is a warden.
The program brings together the unlikely pair, but Logan and Katie soon find themselves forced to overcome past fears and prejudices. Their friendship doesn’t come easily - threatened by a crooked lawyer with a grudge and a best friend who betrays her promise to help.
When faced with a world that forces them apart, Logan and Katie must show everyone else what they have discovered: that love is, in fact, colorblind.
Where does Incarcerated rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Without a doubt right at the top, I love the story. It did take me a while as usual to adjust to being read to, I am so used to moving at my own pace or going back and rereading as I go.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Incarcerated?
When Katie and Logan met in person, I think it was one of the best moments in the book. Love can move mountains sometimes.
What about Olivia Peppersmith’s performance did you like?
She was so enthusiastic about the reading, she showed that everything mattered with the tone of her voice. She made the characters come to life. But in the same breath I didn't care for how clipped she made her words, enunciation is very important but at times it just annoyed me.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There are moments in this book that make you warm and fuzzy for sure. As for crying no I never went there I guess I had a lot of faith.
To add to this review my husband listened to most of this book with me, he was enjoying it tremendously. He has taken my Kindle into his room to rewind so to speak and hear the parts he missed while at work. So Inger he says to tell you that he rates it as a 5.
