Can she change for him?
Can he change for her?
Michael is in Thailand diving his dream. Leesie is at BYU living hers. And they just can’t leave each other alone. Their romance rekindles, deeper than before. They grow desperate to see one another again. To hold one another again. Michael decides there is only one direction their relationship can go and asks Leesie the ultimate question. Her answer challenges everything Michael is and wants to be.
Poetry evokes deepness and feelings on its verses, and it’s this way the words from Unbroken Connection floated. Once again love and the capability of redemption bring Leesi and Michael together in the Taken By Storm sequel. Written under the same style as the first one, Unbroken Connection is narrated in different POVs, but in four different narrative styles. The story begins weeks after the culmination of events that occurred on Taken By Storm; Leesi living her lifelong dream (studying at BYU) and Michael at the other end of the world working his passion (scuba diving). But there is “something” none of them considered and that something was the impact they caused on each other’s lives, which took Taken By Storm ending to be the beginning of a beautiful love story. In this presentation we see a more mature, outgoing and decided Leesi, who slowly develops a character that makes perfect balance between her spirituality and the lady she’s turning into. On the other hand we have Michael … OH Michael! I was not wrong when I pointed that the Michael Walden we met at the beginning of Taken By Storm didn’t turned out to be the same who left my heart aching at the end of the story. Michael shines in this book and it’s incredible to see how Leesi has been transforming his life, but what’s even more wonderful about his change is that it gets to be so natural and genuine that his voice as a character does not get lost; at the contrary, it stands out. Both their interactions in the story are lovely and charming. It’s like they finally reached the point where each one is willing to make the relationship work because “letting go” is not an option anymore. Romance is so deep and what’s wonderful is that it teaches that redemption capability is always present if you decide for it. The way Morrison grasps spiritual and denominational topics without being preachy is just graceful without passing judgment. This is the biggest compliment I can give Morrison; she does not present a religious story even though spiritual topics are being used. Morrison brings a story where a great love is capable not only of healing wounds, but building, create and open the door for eternal love and wisdom. Unbroken Connection, where love and redemption’s nature get together in a deeper feeling that only desires “forever and ever”.
