*This review contains minor spoilers, I hid them, but be aware.*

10-year-old Ren has been sold by his mother. He became a slave along with other kids, working on a farm. One day he had enough of wasting away, and waiting for his owner to cut off all his fingers, or starve to death. He plotted and schemed and at the first chance, he ran. Only, he didn't realize he took something that wasn't his to take.

Little Della was barely a few months old, when she's been stolen from her home. Did she mind? Nope. She was better off not knowing the monsters who gave life to her. She only cared about the boy who unknowingly saved her.

As Ren struggled with the decision that he either had to raise a child alone, when he wanted nothing more is to be far away from civilization and people, or leave her somewhere. Meanwhile baby Della got him wrapped around her little finger, and Ren felt a connection to her, unlike no other, and had to decide what was more important. Either he had to give up his desire to live in the wilderness and be free, or give up Della.

...

I have never been disappointed in Pepper Winters' writing. This story is beautiful. I adore Ren, and it was interesting to see how he tried to raise Della. And how he struggled to understand his feelings for her as she grew into a woman.. I really liked the idea of how the author showed us Della's side of the story. She had fewer chapters than Ren, but I think it was perfectly balanced. This book was basically about a boy trying to be a parent, while also trying to survive. The romance didn't play a big part in it yet, maybe in the last 30%, so there's not much kissing, and sexy times, at least not between the MC's. There was plenty of suspense and angst. Someone used the word exquisite, to describe this book, and I agree wholeheartedly.

(I have only one question. Why is this book tagged as dark? We didn't see much about Ren being a slave. And it's not incest, not really.)

This book is perfect. Don't read it when you want something light though. ( )

This book has been on my TBR for months now. Anytime this author puts up a blurb about a new book it gets added. I don't even have to know what it is about. She is an automatic one-click author for me. That being said, she did not disappoint. This is a heartbreaking story. It is bittersweet and yet hauntingly beautiful at the same time. It is a story about survival in the literal and figurative sense. It is about discovering that even amongst ugliness there is still beauty to come out of it.

If you are looking for a darker romance that this author is known for, then be prepared. This is not that story. It is uniquely different and masterfully written by an author pours her passion out via her words on paper. She makes you feel. Give this book a chance even if it is not your normal cup of tea. ( )

I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book.

Ren is ten years old when he escapes from the farm where he has been enslaved for two years. On his way out, he thoughtlessly picks up a backpack containing the very last thing he needs: his owner's baby daughter, Della. Ren can't bring himself to treat her with the heartlessness he has been subjected to, and so he keeps her. For almost seventeen years, he raises Della as his real family. She's the only person he has ever loved. As Della becomes an adult, Ren realizes to his horror that their familial relationship is growing into something else. Narrated by both Ren and Della as they look back on their life together and reflect on their decisions and mistakes, I was reminded a lot of "Wuthering Heights." Ren is like Heathcliff, with his intense rage and feral love for his "sister" Della (Cathy), who can't help but charm everyone she meets with her beauty and natural intelligence. I felt instense frustration and hope and love for two very real people who go through hell alongside each other and as a result are meant to be together, but are kept apart by societal expectations, miscommunications, and the unusualness of their relationship. I hope that their journey doesn't end in them destroying themselves and almost everyone around them.
This story is not happy. It is not light, it is not sweet, and, since it is part one of two, it definitely doesn't end on a HEA. There are mentions of child slave labor, severe abuse, and homelessness. Your heart will definitely break for the protagonists. And then it will break some more. However, this story contains the barest, rawest form of love, which makes for an unforgettable reading experience. If you're looking for a story that will truly tear at your emotions and draw you into a relationship unlike any other, this is it. I am awaiting impatiently the conclusion of Ren and Della's story.
